Great food for many different tastes - vegetarian, meat-happy, lactose free, GF, etc. Mediterranean and European options cover all bases, and everything we had over two nights was delicious (and we rarely revisit the same restaurant twice), Beautiful garden terrace for a long, happy meal...More

We had lunch here back in August 2017. We were very surprised to see a restaurant serving middle eastern food in Gstaad! The food was quite delicious and filling. We enjoyed it.

Can’t say enough good things about this hotel. It is super cozy, great location (near the train station as well as all the shops and main attractions), impeccable service and great food. It’s a family owned business, and that definitely adds to its charm.
