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

We have never heard about this place and decided to give it a try. It's small, cosy and very calm. The staff is taking good care and the menu is presented in an original way. The starter, plate and dessert for 65chf is probably the best deal (possible to extend to 4 or 5 courses if you are very hungry).... More

We went there guided by Tripadvisor comments: what a nice diner! Fine and creative cuisine by a young but very experienced chef. Warm and efficent welcome of his wife. We will certainly return.

Delighted! Came back for a dinner the next day. A young couple with enormous experience brings a new wave of modern gastronomy to Leukerbad while carrying on the finest tradition of local family restaurant. NEW, FRESH, CLASSY, STYLISH, ORIGINAL, KIND, ELEGANT! Coming back again!
