“Gault-Millau mountain restaurant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014

Imagine our surprise when emerging from Spielboden gondola's upper station to see a Gault-Millau placard and then to see a Michelin sign as we walked into the mountain restaurant. Expecting 'just' the usual delicious Swiss mountain meal, we realized we had stumbled into a gourmet restaurant on the mountain. I ordered the gnocchi and it was the best I have ever had. My mother was French, from Nice, and an outstanding cook, so her gnocchi has been the standard that all others must try to meet. Honestly, the gnocchi here outshone hers. The menu had many appetizing dishes, prices were reasonable (no more than at a regular mountain restaurant in Switz. -- bearing in mind that the dollar doesn't buy much anywhere in Switzerland), the interior of the restaurant was lovely, and the service was wonderful. It was a very special experience to have this meal, and we will not forget it.

“Excellent service - great views and superb food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2014

I've enjoyed lunch here a couple of times. The food is of a consistently high standard. The staff are extremely friendly and accommodating - we arrived an hour before our reservation as the ski lift nearby had stopped running - that didn't pose a problem at all. Great food and really fantastic wine list.

“Be certain to book, you won't be served otherwise”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2014 via mobile

Service good by one waiter, although the team seem not to work by sections which makes for a confused service... 4 waiting staff involved for 2 drinks! Also food is VERY fussy for a mid-day snack but creme brûlée was delicious. Probably worth a visit but be prepared to splurge & certainly plan ahead and book your party in

“Excellent in all ways”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014

We made an on-line reservation a couple of days before which I highly recommend in high season. After several horrible meals and situations with 1.5 hours wait etc. in other mountain restaurants, we were duly impressed by this place - very upscale with great food for such a remote location. The wine which is local and very hard to find is remarkable. The entire staff especially David is fantastic. Thank you for a lovely meal and wonderful break amidst such mountain beauty. Only tiny mistake was a long wait for our post-meal espressos but in exchange our wine was taken off the bill, classy. Recommendable.
