We visited the restaurant at this hotel in April 2013. We did not stay at the hotel but we dined in the restaurant and had to opportunity to see the property and the grounds. It is a lovely place and the small town of Morat is well worth a visit. The lake is absolutely beautiful and the town is extremely clean and well kept (like all of wonderful Switzerland). The view from the restaurant Juma is spectacular. If you go, try to be there for sunset.
Now, on to the meal. There were 11 of us for a pre-selected very special dinner. Our 5 courses were all spectacular, probably one of the best meals anywhere in the world. Now if you want details - the five courses were: 1. a lovely dish of two different types of asperagus, one of which was an amazing terrine; 2) soup of young peas and mint with scallops; 3) a white fish from the lake Morat with an incredible bouillon, spinach, carrots and passion fruit; 4) veal steak in croute with herbs and a potato galetter, green beans and morels; 5) a rhubarb tart in what is best described in english as puff pastry - mille feuilles in French.
Both wines were from the local area and were incredible. Swiss wine is all so amazing. Be sure to have local wine any time you are in Switzerland. It is as good as anything you will have in Italy, France or Spain. They just drink it all and don't export much so we don't know about Swiss wine if we live outside the country.
The service was perfect. We were invited as guests so I have no idea how much it cost but I can guess. It was worth every penny (even if I had been the one footing the bill).
We will go back and next time we will stay at this hotel.
