Few places could have been tailored better to the rich and famous than the legendary St. Moritz. Settled in the Engadin valley, the town has been a go-to for jet-set skiers and sports enthusiasts for over a century. Over the years an impressive array of fine dining restaurants have developed to cater for this discerning clientele. Here are our favourites...
Classic French cuisine has it all: carefully-selected ingredients, well-balanced flavours and of course, beautiful presentation. And The K boasts all this and more. Swiss Chef Hans Nussbaumer is scoring major points – 16 Gault&Millau to be precise – with his specialities that will please every palate. Whether you go for the tasting menu, or save room for signature desserts such as Crêpes Suzette and Parfait of Tanzanian and Ivorian chocolate, The K’s discreet ambience will make your evening unforgettable.
Tucked inside Pontresina’s well-known Grand Hotel Kronenhof is one of the region’s cosiest restaurants. Kronenstübli serves Mediterranean cuisine with touches of Italian and French influence. Try the fresh Rouen-style duck available every day, or the signature Tafelspitz served every Wednesday in a beautiful silver saucepan. The culinary flair is guaranteed by the 15 Gault&Millau points, and this gastronomic excellence is accompanied by an impressive wine list.
