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

| March 20, 2017 | 0 Comments

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 a bit disappointed. The prawn was actually well seasoned and quite delicious – the soup itself though was rather common and didn’t taste like much.

Usually, I think it is lovely to have a ‘sorbet’ served as an in-between course. However, if that happens due to the fact that you are needing too much time in the kitchen to prepare the main course, it is not such a good thing. However, the “lemon sorbet” was okay.

As a main course, I went for the “beef tenderloin with mushroom risotto” (CHF 52.00) and while the plate did not look too appealing as it somehow was just too plain, I was persuaded quite quickly that the meat is exquisite – to be more precise: After the first bite. The meat was not only tender but also had a lovely meaty aroma and was grilled to perfection “medium rare” as requested. The vegetables served with it are really not satisfying in terms of looks but also in terms of taste but the mushroom risotto was actually decently smooth and quite a big portion.

The quality of the services highly varies depending on which waiter is serving you – while the head waitress did an amazing job, it did not always work out as well with the other waiters. However, overall, the service is dedicated and friendly and they do a good job. Wen it comes to the kitchen, I do admit that generally it is also quite fine but when you get that sorbet served in order to bridge between courses, I do not really consider that good cuisine. Other than that, the place is very crammed on a Saturday evening which is understandable given the atmosphere is quite nice. The prices are not low but definitely fair – which is also true for the beverages (i.e. 0,77l Passugger, CHF 8.00; double espresso, CHF 5.00; a glass of ‘Grappa Monsu’, CHF 9.00 and a 1,5l bottle of “Raiza”, CHF 108.00).

Overall, I can recommend you to pay the Restaurant Corner a visit – lovely alternative to the Tapas Lounge. It definitely does make sense to book a table in advance as else you won’t stand a chance to get seated on a Saturday evening.
