“It's great to have Dalsass back in Gstaad, but service needs improvement”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

It is great to see Dalsass back in Gstaad (he used to run the famous Chlösterli and is the famous Chef of the Talvo in St.Moritz, and it is nice to get some uncomplicated, good food in the heart of Gstaad. I liked the Ravioli, the salads are nice as well; we must have hit a bad day, the restaurant was super busy and several empty tables still carried the empty plates...
Hopefully, this was only due to the Holiday stress!

“They should be ashamed!!!”
Reviewed June 21, 2013

We visit Gstaad now and again and always have problems eating well in Gstaad unless you go for the top restaurants. This time we had THE worst experience. The croûte au fromage: one very thick "slice" of dry bread, no wine whatsoever in the dish. A transparent 20-30 gr slice of melted cheese of 3rd rate quality. They won the first price: worst croûte au fromage ever eaten!! These people are making fun of you and imagine that tourists don't know what a croûte au fromage should taste like. Shameful! Unfortunately, they're not the only ones serving bad food in town... The prices are very high for what they serve. Nearly CHF 25.- for a sausage and some greasy rösti. CHF 4.- for tap water!!! THIS IS A PLACE TO BE AVOIDED!!!

“Find another place to eat in Gstaad”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

4 adults having dinner. Twice they brought the wrong food at the table. Between starters and mains, 30 minutes wait. Having made it to the deserts... no tiramisu left. Prices? High quality ;-) Gstaadlike.

“average”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

arrogant management...windy (a huge door constantly opened, choose the second room if you want to eat without your coat)..and a poor menu. The pastas are just ok, they were almost cold ..compare to the 2 other restaurants of the Bernerhof hotel this one has a lot to improve to become a good restaurants where clients want to come back. It is just fine as an afternoon cafeteria for the Pernet store.

We stopped there for a prosecco and after few minutes we decided it could have been a great place for our dinner. Service is friendly and impeccable, food is extremely high quality. Highly recommended!
