Much better than the G&M rating of 13, for us closer to 15-16.

Gourmet food, fine service and a smooth ambiance. Somewhere I can recommend to anybody. th concept is interesting in that there are 10 plates to choose from and if you decide on 3 or more the price is fixed. There is a suggested wine for each course by the glass if you want. The prices are... read more

I had no expectations of this restaurant to which I was taken by my boyfriend who grew up in the village of Leukerbad. The restaurant itself is small and understated, tucked into a sidestreet with just a few tables. Modern and stylish inside, the lone waitress provided us with impeccable service. We both chose the 3 course taster menu with... More

On our seventh annual visit to Leukerbad we made our second visit ( it only opened a year ago) to this lovely little restaurant. Once again we were spoilt for choice from the small menu. All our friends choices were eaten with great appreciation, in fact our friend, with a broken arm, managed to carve her "tenderloin" one handed it... More

Hidden away from the main centre, tastefully decorated, modern and stylish. We had a three course degustation with matching wines which were superb. Not cheap but worth every cent. They also very extremely kind in suggesting child friendly dishes for our children who were with us - even though it isn't really the sort of place for kids (other pizza... More

This very small and classy restaurant is a hidden pearl in the city center. Very nice and modern ambiance, grey and white tones, casual and elegant with cute details...... The food is magnificent ! Original composition of dishes, very nice balance of textures and tastes, prepared with great technique, excellent presentation. The "menu degustation" is perfect with the correct crescendo... More

A superb restaurant, calm, intimate, with outstanding food and perfect service. Easily one of the best restaurants I have ever eaten at. It can be a little difficult to find, because it is located off the main road, up a small pedestrian path, in a 350 year old Swiss farmhouse. But just look for the signs. Not inexpensive, but excellent... More

"Abheben & Geniessen" is the moto of this tiny restaurant in Leukerbad, which is hard to translate literally (Take-off & Enjoy) but the best translation is maybe Carpe Diem! The food is extraordinary, the young chef (Roger Brendel) just got a 13/20 mark from Gault & Millau and it tells a lot. Nadja Brendal will welcome you and provide excellent... More

What an experience. We were 6. Four from Canada and two living in Switzerland. We met in Leukerbad for a dinner and someone suggested this place. It was a superb experience - the food was top quality - the local wines were perfect. The ambiance and decor were different and spot on - the proprietors have only had this place... More

My girlfriend and I decided to eat here for my 27th birthday and we were pleasantly surprised. The food was perfect, the risotto In particular. The hostess was friendly and service was very prompt. She also suggested wines to go with each of our courses which was a nice touch. The restaurant is small so booking is probably wise although... More

We enjoyed our dinner in the Balmhorn very much. Reservation is almost mandatory, as there are around 10 tables and it's becoming very popular, especially on weekends. The atmosphere is relaxed and cosy. The evening menu consists of around 10 dishes (including desserts), from which you can choose as many as you want. For 3 or more, you get a... More
