Great mix of local and Spanish tapas: Tapas Lounge @ Hotel Kurhaus (3. February 2017)

| March 18, 2017 | 0 Comments

After an incredible ride on a Friday evening from Zurich to Lenzerheide – traffic jam wherever you go – I finally arrived at the Tapas Lounge in the Kurhaus. And while almost starving to death, the first little tapa was already served – “tortilla with spinach, mushrooms and alioli sauce” (CHF 12.00) and while I am not a fan of the typical tortilla as it is too heavy for me and there is way too much egg, this one was perfect as it was light and quite delicious and went super well with the alioli sauce!

As we were quite hungry, we decided to order a combination of the ‘Spanish tapas’ and the ‘tapas from Grisha’ going for “beet root carpaccio with goat cheese, honey, pine nuts” (CHF 14.00), “crispy eggplant with maple syrup” (CHF 12.00), “gambas al ajillo – fried king prawns in a garlic chili butter” (CHF 18.00), “Albonidgas de buey con tomate – meat balls in tomato sauce” (CHF 14.00), “capuns from Grisha” (CHF 14.00), “beef filet cubes au gratin with Café de Paris” (CHF 22.00), and “veal liver with apples and dried plums” (CHF 16.00). In short – the tapas were delicious. I was not a big fan of the crispy eggplants but mainly because the maple syrup didn’t really taste like much but the rest was outstanding. The beef filet cubes were orgasmic and the capuns and the gambas were outstanding.

To finish off, we went for the “Kurhaus Mini-Bündy-Burger” (CHF 14.00) which was absolutely fine. Not really the final highlight but definitely also worth trying. The atmosphere in the Tapas Lounge is quite lovely, especially if you get to score one of the tables in the back where you have your quiet and can enjoy the food and your bottle of wine (Locomotora, CHF 64.00) in cozy atmosphere.

The waiter, Masio (or something like that), did a great job. He was always there and quite jovial and it was just fun to have him as a waiter. Although we had to wait quite long between ordering our tapas and them being served. At first, when I thought of tapas, I thought of generally smaller dishes and was expecting it to be quite expensive for what you get but then it turned out that they were so good and also quite large that the price performance ratio is actually excellent. Which is also true for the beverages (i.e. double espresso, CHF 6.00; Grappa, CHF 12.00).

If you are in Lenzerheide, you should definitely pay the Tapas Lounge in the Kurhaus a visit to enjoy good food with a good bottle of wine in a very cozy atmosphere. Make sure though, especially during winter time, to book a table in advance!
