The Omnia and the Alpine Gourmet Prato Borni in the Grand Hotel Zermatterhof each received 15 points and thus one point more each than in the previous year. The Corbeau D’Or Restaurant in the Hotel Mirabeau Alpine Residence, which was awarded 16 points in 2017, is missing from the 2018 list, since the restaurant was closed to make way for a new restaurant concept in December.
