Atmosphere & Accolades
La Terrazza offers a relaxed respite after a day of mountain activities. Linen-clad tables, Rundle rock features and a Sundance Range view from atrium windows contribute to the fine dining experience. TripAdvisor has awarded this restaurant a Certificate of Excellence. Before or after dinner, enjoy a cocktail or special coffee by the fireplace in the adjacent lounge that also offers a separate, more casual menu.
