Cash only, but totally worth it, cool atmosphere and cozy. Doesn't look like much on the outside, but amazing food and fun. As it gets later people started to smoke, which was a que for us to leave, but as far as a great place to eat, it is a must.

Looks like crap but one of the coolest atmospheres and reliable but narrow menus in town ... This place is known for its tight rowed seating, wild crowd, prolific alcohol consumption... and best of all, the proprietor's ( Max) playlist.. which cranks it out loud after about 9:30-10:00. Every trip to Saint Moritz involves at least one dinner here!

My family and I went to a party at La Baracca. The restaurant isn't the prettiest to look at but it has a cosy feel once you get inside. The service was friendly, the food was decent but the wine was pretty average - maybe we chose poorly. Once the music started, we danced into the early hours. Great fun.... More

Had dinner with friends here - bit of a hidden gem by all accounts. Terrific service, the food was absolutely superb and a good atmosphere too.

The ambient is very relaxing, the food very good and wine and spirits are perfect for an after ski dining. Though we left early the party starts right after dining. The menu handwritten on a board and casual waiters makes you feel more at home than at restaurant.

If you want to have fun in an informal setting with good and nice food this is the place! We were a party of 7 and all enjoyed the sharing platter style and quality of the food. Later in the evening they play fun cheesy music that everyone can dance to (even on the benches)! The cocktails are great, and... More

The food is bad and expensive, and it is very unpleasant to have dinner in this place unless you have an individual table. Otherwise, you will have to eat with the elbow of the client sitting beside you in your plate. The waiter who attended us (with big blue eyes and a pony tail) was slow and rude (both to... More

The reasyaurant is in St Moritz Bad across the street from Kempinsky hotel but in contrast to all other restaurants in this fancy place it looks seedy- real baracca. You need to have reservation because it is very popular and allways full. The atmosphere is loud and place is very simply decorated with long wooden benches so that many people... More

This is where the jockeys from the White Turf and the Cresta Run public school Brits come to party. Sit on uncomfortable benches in eclectic semi-industrial surroundings well outside the town (near the Signalbahn cable car station). Food is a little out of the ordinary for St Moritz but that's a plus. Carpaccio of venison, macaroni with mince and apple... More
