Two Michelin stars

Fine dining, aroma cuisine, multi-award winning: so far, so Ecco. Executive Chef Rolf Fliegauf and his team have turned Ecco Ascona into the finest gourmet restaurants in Ascona and Ticino. But the menu isn’t the only marvel here, the location and service are also out of this world. The result: two Michelin stars and 18 Gault Millau points.

Rolf Fliegauf

Executive Chef

Rolf Fliegauf

Praised by critics as one of the greatest chefs of his generation, once the youngest two-star chef in Europe and yet still completely down to earth, Rolf Fliegauf is the founder and Executive Chef of the Ecco restaurants in Ascona and St. Moritz. His style is unique. He plays, combines and experiments with textures like a musician does with notes, yet the ingredients always retain their original flavour. His “purist flavour-based cuisine” has won him two Michelin stars. It’s simply magnificent!

The Ecco story

The multi-award winning restaurant concept started life in Ascona. Executive Chef Rolf Fliegauf founded Ecco in the Giardino Ascona hotel and developed his own style. This “purist aroma cuisine”, where every ingredient retains its own flavour, soon made him the youngest two-star chef in Europe. This was followed by the second Ecco restaurant in St. Moritz, where the entire team still spends the winter months. The climax: the swift arrival of two Michelin stars. GaultMillau also awarded 18 points. Both Ecco restaurants have their own signature with reference to the respective region, but always developing side-by-side. Ecco!
