Gault & Millau The prestigious guide to fine dining in Switzerland




Many of our hotel descriptions mention that their restaurants have been recognised in the Gault & Millau restaurant guide. The guide was started in France by Henri Gault and Christian Millau and has developed to include Germany, Benelux, Austria and Switzerland. The Swiss version was established in 1982 and is one of the most influential fine dining guides in the country. It uses points for its rating system and only restaurants with between 12-20 points are listed, including the top 100 hotel restaurants.

Please see below for our partner hotels which are featured in the 2018 guide. We will be happy to offer further advice on our favourite gourmet hotels on 0800 619 1200 or you can click through to our Gourmet Holidays page.
