Restaurant Guide in Switzerland
In our hotel descriptions we mention that many of our hotels have had their restaurants recognised in the Gault & Millau restaurant guide. This is one of the most influential guides in Switzerland which uses points for its rating system and only restaurants with between 12-20 points are listed.
The guide was started in France by Henri Gault and Christian Millau and has developed to include Germany, Benelux, Austria and Switzerland.
The Swiss guide was established in 1982 and the 2014 guide features 800 restaurants and 80 hotel restaurants throughout Switzerland which have been awarded between 12 to 20 points.
The points are awarded for the following:
- Quality and freshness of produce
- Creativity and professionalism in food presentation
- Harmony of the menu
- Timing of service
- Presentation and salubriousness of dishes
- Consistency of performance
