The new star of the show in Andermatt has to be The Chedi Hotel, which features some stunning luxury suites, and some wonderful eateries to include ‘The Restaurant’ serving authentic Swiss and European dishes with a modern twist, and ‘The Japanese Restaurant by Hide Yamamoto’, serving spectacular sushi, sashimi and tempura, among other things.
On the chefs night off at your luxury ski chalet, Restaurant River House on Gotthardstrasse is certainly worth a visit for local fayre. And if you’ve had your fill of fondue and its ilk, Baeren is a lovely Italian restaurant that does great seafood and pasta.
For drinking, a must-do is The Chedi’s private wine tasting, with gourmet snacks in its private wine dining room, which can be hired for up to eight people at a time. And it would be impolite not to stop for a cocktail in front of The Chedi’s roaring fire in the bar on the way out before heading back to your luxury ski rental.
