Zermatt: A Culinary Hotspot with 238 Points
Zermatt offers outstanding cuisine. This has been confirmed once again in the most popular restaurant and food guide in Switzerland, the 2016 edition of the GaultMillau. In it, 17 Zermatt restaurants are listed. All together, the Zermatt restaurants have 238 GaultMillau points.
Zermatt offers the greatest dining pleasure with 100 restaurants in the village and another 50 restaurants in the mountain. 17 of these restaurants are distinguished culinary hotspots. The newcomer is the Restaurant Alpine Gourmet Prato Borni under its chef de cuisine Ralph Busch. According to GaultMillau, the Alpine Gourmet Prato Borni has moved a step closer to becoming the leading gourmet dining experience in Zermatt. The Italian brigade at the Restaurant Le Capri, which is open each winter, spoils its guests in summer in the five-star Capri Palace Hotel at Capri in southern Italy. The islanders move to Zermatt for the winter in order to contribute a touch of the Mediterranean to the high Alps with discerning top-drawer pasta, fish and wine specialties. The hotelier Sepp Julen hit the jackpot with Alain Kuster: in the Corbeau d’Or Restaurant in the Hotel Mirabeau Alpine Residence, the old master Alain Kuster upholds tradition with a refined touch.
