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

Dishes were tasty and innovative, all at a decent price for Switzerland. The place itself is small and cosy, which makes it perfect for a romantic or family dinner. I would recommend it!

A young couple takes over a traditional restaurant and brings in light, charm, and culinary creativity. From the tuna tartare with avocado cream and hummus to the jerusalem artichoke soup wth roasted hazelnuts and the porcini risotto with belper knolle, everything was tasty and impeccably cooked. Very good local (Valais) wine list with a few suprises to discover round up... More
