We visited the 16ieme in Saanen on several occasions between February and March 2017. Whether it was during the high seasons where everything was super busy or outside the peak time...we were always looked after impeccably and the food is of high quality only surpassed by the attentive and personal service of staff and management.

Friendly place and very popular - they seem to have to do 2 sittings at weekends in order to cope with demand. The food was good but what I remember in particular was the wine list, which was exceptional. If you want proof that Swiss wine is getting better, you can find the evidence at the 16 Art!

Rare example of welcoming service for the ones who haven't reserved in a place with limited space. One may not like but you can be put at the table with unknown people - but this gives intimate and home atmosphere to this place. Menu is not huge but offering a wide selection of fish and meat dishes, even Bouillabaisse. The... More

whenever i attend the music-festivals in gstaad - and this is quite often every year - , i'm having an after-concert-dinner in this really nice spot. the kitchen, especially the grilled meat, is excellent, the wine-selection exceptional, and the service unuquely attentive and friendly. i'm sure i'll come back at eastern and in the future. thanks.

We enjoyed the daily menu, the nice atmosphere and the friendly service very much. The place was full at a Friday evening, therefore reservations are recommended. Good location in a cozy chalet with a nice garden in the center of Saanen, about 100m from train station.

This place has established itself for a very good reason.We were rewarded with a friendly and considerate service and truly great food. The wine list revealed the level of experience to be expected.
