Don't be fooled by this fun looking make-shift-cheap-and-chearful hut kind of place. If you enter you will be forced to sit right next to people bum-to-bum and elbow-to-elbow. It can be fun if you're tiny but if you're 6 foot tall (and over) fully grown man you cannot sit down properly at all and I'm an averaged sized woman and... More

We waited 90 minutes for our food and when it arrived, it was cold. They lump together duplicated orders such as the salad starter and the portion size is not worth the 15CHF they charge. The large bottle of wine is more expensive than if you buy two small ones which seems an odd pricing concept. The staff are rude... More

This restaurant has a great atmosphere and very good food! Perfect for a social and low-key evening. Staff is very helpful and knowledgable. The menu is on the walls.

This is the most relaxed and fun place in St. Moritz! Delicious carpaccio and salad! The volume goes up towards midnight and people start dancing on the tables. Very fun place.

Must visit place, no dress code, jeans and sport casual is smart deal. Place is real in old baracs for construction workers, very interesting concept. Food is very good, we tried salad and very good steak. Vine selection is nice. Place is expensive and very crowded, so reservation is needed. Better to come earlier, because party time starts after normal... More

This place is great fun and good food! Still expencive for many but sure a goot deal for St. Moritz! Fun for long dinner with music or after dinner drink. Crowded in high season and weekends, must phone in advance! ( I would say no kids... or older then 12)

Average food for a serious price and outpriced wines. Still, after having visited Baracca for a consecutive 5 years we see the place get more crowded. Seats and tables are so close you can't have a decent seating anymore. You sit shoulder to shoulder, in double rows and the place is so packed that I'm sure they're way over safety-limits.... More

la Barraca is great for fun, food, music. Owner Max is a natural in creating a party for every one until 4am Everyone goes, Ski instructor or billionaire, everyone dances on the tables.

We visited over the White Turf weekend and it was packed! Reservations recommended. The restaurant is an old barracks and decor is basic. You have to share trestle tables (don’t expect table linen!) but good hearty food and great service. What is wonderful is the relaxed atmosphere with dancing on the tables most nights! A great place to spend the... More

Right at the bottom at Corvigliastation, on the Parking lot, there is a little place to have a beer or “vin chaud“ after a long day of skiing, if you feel like warming up. It’s for everyone: young/old/ sporty and nice people. Even many locals are eating there. The food is really good (local and fresh), but a little expensive... More
