We came here on the suggestion of our airbnb host who said the food is excellent. It was nothing less. The food was outstanding. We both had wild garlic soup, lemon ravioli, veal, pata negra, brownie and a cheese board. The pork was exceptionally well cooked, tender and had a fantastic taste. The final cheese selection was also really delicious.... More

I chose this place to propose to my girlfriend and I couldn't have done better. This place is clearly among the best restaurants I have ever been in. Not only is the food excellent but also the atmosphere is great and the service is very friendly. We will definitely come back!

Vers good experience. Food was very good, with real effort on presentation and choice of ingredients. Finally it's not fondue, sausages and frites. Veal was excellent. You should book even during the week, restaurant is small so tables are not many. I recommend and next time in Leukerbad will go there to eat again.

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 Swiss - the quality... 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
