Great place to fuel up in the sun before hitting the slopes again: Berghaus Alte Schwendi (25. January 2019)

If you catch a sunny day like I was lucky to, then the Berghaus Alte Schwendi is absolutely perfect for a prolonged lunch stop in the sun. It is a bit tricky to reach if you are not familiar with the slopes but once you do so, it is definitely recommendable to get there. There […]

Breakfast with a view: Restaurant Stars @ Nira Alpina, Silvaplana, a Member of Design Hotels™ (15. July 2018)

Breakfast in the Restaurant Stars on the 5th floor of the hotel is quite decent. I would have preferred to have dinner here but the breakfast was also fine. There is everything you need like cereals … … a variety of nuts and dried fruit … … yogurt, müesli and fruit … … cold cuts, […]

Exquisite service in a lovely atmosphere: Restaurant Trattoria @ Nira Alpina, Silvaplana, a Member of Design Hotels™ (14. July 2018)

I haven’t visited many Design Hotels™ so far but this weekend it was time to spend a day in the mountains and enjoy the view and the good food. While there is – supposedly – an outstanding restaurant on the top floor of the hotel, it was closed that day as there was a wedding […]

Great breakfast for a Swiss hotel: Restaurant Belvédère @ Steigenberger Grandhotel Belvédère Davos (12. March 2017)

Great breakfast for a Swiss hotel: Restaurant Belvédère @ Steigenberger Grandhotel Belvédère Davos (12. March 2017)

I am quite used to a rip-off for breakfast when staying in a Swiss hotel – but this time, I was really positively surprised as the breakfast accounts for only CHF 27.00. Way less than I had expected and the selection of dishes is actually quite good starting with a variety of different fruit and […]

Smooth cheese fondue with standard chili flakes: Fonduestube Romeo & Julia @ Steigenberger Grandhotel Belvédère Davos (11. March 2017)

Smooth cheese fondue with standard chili flakes: Fonduestube Romeo & Julia @ Steigenberger Grandhotel Belvédère Davos (11. March 2017)

The Fonduestube Romeo & Julia is famous for its variety of fondues – kinda makes sense, given the name. As a starter, you get dried ham with two spreads and some bread. Generally, that is a nice starter which I personally also liked but given one of our party was vegetarian – and no alternative […]

I can recommend you … not to go: Restaurant & Bar Alte Post (10. March 2017)

Frankly, the Alte Post isn’t a place I would usually attend but given we were there in the context of a larger group, I guess it’s fine. As a ‘starter’, if you want, a salad bowl, respectively several, were brought to the table – to help yourself. I mean, I like the idea that you […]

Weak starter but strong main – not on the ‘pretty’ side though: Restaurant Corner (4. February 2017)

Weak starter but strong main – not on the ‘pretty’ side though: Restaurant Corner (4. February 2017)

As mentioned earlier, there is not too much in Lenzerheide, given it is a rather small town so we ended up going to the Kurhaus again – but a different restaurant this time. The Corner offers quite refined cuisine. I had a “saffron and fennel soup, prawn” (CHF 15.00) as a starter but I was […]

Great for local food from the Grisons: Restaurant Ustria (4. Feburary 2017)

Great for local food from the Grisons: Restaurant Ustria (4. Feburary 2017)

Besides the Kurhaus there is not so much in Lenzerheide but there is the Ustria and it is definitely worth visiting. The place is rather simple, looks more like a typical town restaurant, and it probably is. But they manage to make part of it quite appealing. The owners – apparently – used to have […]
