“Fabulous food accompanied by picturesque view. Can't ask for more”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2013

Travelling along the narrow drive, one wonders what sort of restaurant can succeed in this out of the way place. Then you see the view across the Saanenland which cannot fail to impress. But it's the food and service that will keep people trekking to it. Chef greets his clients warmly, and serving staff are friendly and efficient. The food is beautifully presented and wonderful on the palate. I won't bother to single any dish out as they were all fantastic. We're planning our return already.

“Fabulous”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2013

Me and my wife had the pleasure to get inspired by the magnificent food of this high-class restaurant. The entrance, with the presentation of the 16 Gault&Millau points of the Sonnenhof, gave us extra motivation to enter and discover one of the best restaurant of the region.
As far we entered, the staff welcomed us in a very kind way. Then, the restaurant owner and Chef, came to our table (and also to the other guests) to greet us and to welcome personally.
We got a glass of prosecco with cassis, as starter turkey breast "à la calabrese" (a little bit spicy) and as main course Beef Filet on hot stone (perfectly cooked) with traditional rösti + vegetables - Beef filet stroganoff with rice duplex. To end the lunch in the sweetest way, we got a particular dark chocolate mousse (excellent) and catalan cream (a blast of goodness).
So, resuming, the location is awesome (with an unforgettable view on the village of Gstaad + surroundings), the Chef + staff + management --> perfect, the food, simply GREAT... seems to be all perfect, why not. The final Bill? Considering all, the quality, the location, the service, the place (Gstaad is a symbol of luxury), the amount could be even higher (comparating with other gault&millau restaurants near there).
We suggest this restaurant to everyone wo wants to enjoy a great meal, alone, with partner or family. What will be sure is that you won't forget so easily this food.

“Amazing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2013

My husband and I were introduced to this place by my father in law when visiting him in January as he regularly visits the restaurant.

We were blown away by the atmosphere and overall experience. The restaurant is cosy, yet modern and perfect for those cold winter evenings. We both had the steak which was such an unusual experience to cook your own and the rosti.. the best we have ever had.

Go... you will want to return!

“Fun & Delicious!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2013

I love this restaurant and absolutely have to go each time I am in Gstaad. Their fillet that comes warm on a piece of slate is so delicious. And so was the tuna carpaccio I had. The crowd is always good there and we were 25 people and the service was impeccable. The wine list also merits a mention. The bill was atrocious but hey, it is Gstaad after all.

“My favorite restaurant!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2013 via mobile

Definitely my favorite restaurant in the region. When is Gstaad always visit this restaurant. The veal Zurichoise is amazing and so is the tuna carpaccio. Also an amazing wine list with great friendly service. Must visit!!
