Our Kitchen

The fundamental value of the restaurant Relais Le Jardin is the uniqueness, with a style of cuisine that adapts to the concept of exceptional and unrepeatable.

Combining shapes and flavors to achieve a balance between aesthetic refinement, selection of ingredients and technical complexity.

The experience that we want to propose is all-embracing and not imitated elsewhere,  moving the concept of luxury from the exclusivity of the realization to the non reproducibility of the sensation.

With these sensory objectives, the collaboration with chef Massimo Viglietti seemed immediately the most obvious choice.

Performer and amplifier of this way of understanding the hospitality of the restaurant is therefore Massimo Viglietti who, behind starred experiences in Liguria as well as in Rome, brings his unconventional vision of the concept of gourmet.

His creative independence, the provocative spirit and the consideration of gastronomy as a form of self-expression are the elements that led the chef and Relais Le Jardin to choose each other.

A set of boosts collected in thirty years of experience and travel around the world define the four tasting paths – Concerto (Concert), Viaggio (Travel), Impressioni (Impressions) and the vegetarian Emozioni (Emotions) – and the à la carte menu of Relais Le Jardin.

Fundamental is the support of the young and creative Sous Chef Valerio Mercadante, skilled in the conception and execution of the dishes, as well as Francesco Verzaro, equally indispensable component of the kitchen brigade

The Restaurant

The history of the restaurant Relais Le Jardin, and the Hotel Lord Byron that hosts it, was born in the early eighties from a monastery located in one of the most intimate area of the Parioli district of Rome, converted into a hotel by the founder Amedeo Ottaviani.

In a short time the structure stands out for the elegance of its forms and its architectural style, reflecting the deep passion of the property for Art Nouveau and Art Deco, expressed in the furnishings and in all its spaces.

The idea of its origin has not changed: education, confidentiality and sensitivity are the cornerstones of the entire concept of hospitality of the Hotel Lord Byron.

The restaurant has over time been awarded with many national and international awards, reaching its peak in the late eighties with the recognition of two Michelin stars, the first restaurant in Rome to achieve this result.

The name Relais Le Jardin is therefore the synonym of absolute quality in dining and hospitality.
