Cuisine at the highest level


Andermatt is the gourmet hotspot in the Swiss Alps. Six restaurants in the valley and on the mountain showcase cuisine at the highest level. As a result, a community is growing at the destination Andermatt that puts a premium on alpine lifestyle accompanied by culinary experiences, top innovative dining and welcoming hospitality.

Five top establishments. With Michelin stars and Gault Millau points


Haute Cuisine.At 2,340 metres above sea level

Haute cuisine in the truest sense: Situated high above Andermatt on the Gütsch mountain plateau (2,340 metres above sea level) are the restaurants Gütsch by Markus Neff and The Japanese by The Chedi Andermatt. They are housed in an elegant building by Studio Seilern Architects in front of a breathtaking mountain backdrop.

Gütsch by Markus Neff.Alpine hospitality

Markus Neff’s cooking is unusual yet down-to-earth. Gütsch by Markus Neff is the first and only Swiss mountain restaurant with a Michelin star and 16 Gault Millau points. While guests gaze out at the peaks of the Central Alps, the chef remains focused on creating dishes featuring local products that have so impressed Gault Millau reviewers – ideally accompanied by Swiss wine that he recommends. Alpine hospitality – no matter the weather.

The Japanese. Two restaurants, two chefs

Two gourmet Japanese restaurants at the same destination: That is the unique concept of The Japanese. The Japanese Restaurant is part of the five-star deluxe hotel The Chedi Andermatt – surrounded by Alpine chic and Asian design – while The Japanese by The Chedi Andermatt sits atop Gütsch, high above the village at 2,300 metres above sea level.

Inspired by Japan. Made for Alpine pleasure

The chef duo of Dominik Sato and Fabio Toffolon oversee the two restaurants, ensuring incomparable gourmet Japanese dining at both of them. The Japanese is the culinary highlight of the three restaurants at The Chedi Andermatt. With its Japanese-influenced delicacies, it offers its guests a true taste experience and already has 17 Gault Millau points and two Michelin stars. The Japanese by The Chedi Andermatt on Gütsch is also Switzerland’s highest altitude Japanese restaurant with a Michelin star.

Bento, kaiseki, sushi. Arigato!

Dominik Sato and Fabio Toffolon are dedicated to fine dining that is inspired by Japanese cuisine but made for European palates. The menu is just as sophisticated, featuring such refined Japanese dishes as shidashi bentō, omakase, kaiseki, sushi, and tempura. Dominik is married to a Japanese and therefore has the surname Sato. Arigato!

The Restaurant.15 Gault Millau points

The Restaurant at The Chedi Andermatt is the realm of Carsten Alexander Kypke and his team. The head chef prepares gourmet dishes with Asian and European influences in open studio kitchens. The Restaurant, which has been awarded 15 Gault Millau points, offers a large selection of vegetarian and vegan dishes. A highlight is the five-metre-tall cheese humidor.

IGNIV.Andreas Caminada's nest in Andermatt

The Grisons restaurateur and three-star chef Andreas Caminada is bringing his IGNIV concept to Andermatt, adding to the town’s already high-quality gourmet options. He plans to open a family restaurant on Furkagasse, which will be regionally rooted yet cosmopolitan.

Sharing. With family and friends

IGNIV is the Romansch word for “nest”. The food here will mostly be served family-style for sharing by everyone at the table – with family and friends. Guests will be certain to enjoy moments of relaxed well-being and shared fine-dining experiences in the Andermatt mountain environment.
