Gourmet delights

The Bernese Oberland is a paradise for gourmets

The region which is well known for its beautiful nature also impresses with its multi-faceted dishes. The restaurants are characterised by their award-winning cuisine and traditional recipes.
The aroma of the finest filet, desserts to indulge and fresh vegetables, mountain herbs and cheeses from the surrounding area: you have no choice but to enjoy the cuisine of the Bernese Oberland. In autumn, game specialities such as deer and wild boar feature on the menus of the restaurants. Fans of delicacies will find fulfilment at the Tropenhaus Frutigen. If you are looking to combine culture with cuisine, you will be delighted with the gourmet tours and dinner cruises. The Guild of Fine Food (Gilde-Küche) in Kandersteg are advocates of good taste. Members of the club have to meet very strict requirements and only offer high-quality food. Lovers of rustic food will be delighted with the large selection of dishes the mountain restaurants offer. Fondues, raclettes and other dishes typical for the Bernese Oberland, such as Suure Mocke (wine braised beef) or Pilzpastetli (mushroom vol-au-vent) will make your mouth water.

Numbers which melt in your mouth

Circa 1276 Gault Millau points in the entire region, more than 577 in the City of Bern and local area alone and more than 256 in the Destination Gstaad, the insider tip for gourmets. The menus of the best restaurants amaze guests and whet their appetite. At the Löwen in Thörigen, top chef Nik Gygax serves for example a Swiss delicacy, Emmental veal stew. And at the restaurant Eisblume in Worb, the motto isn’t “all good things come in three” but “six” instead. This is the number of courses that are served, each offering delicious delicacies. A special highlight for gourmets is the Saveurs Gstaad. Several times a year events take place that combine cuisine, culture, sports and music.
