WE ate at the restaurant and experienced wonderful fish cuisine and wonderful service. The owners were present on both occasions that we ate there and their attention to hospitality was excellent.

We arrived in Switzerland on the Friday and treated ourselves to a meal here on our first night. The staff were very friendly and I was invited to taste which house wine I would like. My husband chose trout with Rösti and was amazed when a second helping of each was offered. I had veal and spinach. The sauce was... More

In Pontresina I have been going to Kochendörfer for the last 30 years and I have never been disappointed. Traditional cuisine with high quality fish and meat, desserts are also a pleasure.

I was staying at the Albris Hotel so I took my chances and tried the food at the hotel's restaurant. I must say food was great not too many options but the plates we chose were pretty good. I loved the perch. And of course the Engandiner nusstorte was just delicious.

Beautiful late summer day, brilliant sun, deep blue sky, 25 degrees - what better place to have a leisurely lunch than a terrace with great views, very good food and friendly service. Nice menu offering a very wide variety of dishes and several as half portion options which is great if you just want a light meal.

I reviewed this restaurant under the Hotel Albris name, as it is within it. We were recommended the restaurant by both friends and family. The staff was courteous and professional, the food beautifully presented and really delicious! I can recommend the saffron risotto with monkfish and fresh shaved horseradish and I am assured the calf liver. This restaurant will definitely... More

My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit to this lovely restaurant. The menu was extensive with lots of tasty options available. We opted for the Grilled Fillet of Beef and the Pontresiner Plätzli which were both delicious. Small portions are available at reduced cost, which is great. The staff were very professional and friendly. We would definitely go again... More

We love to spend our yearly skiing holiday in Pontresina and whenever we are here we go to the Cafe Kochendorfer for coffee and cake. Their Engadiner Torte is among the best cakes you will find anywhere in the world. It's a great place to have lunch or dinner too, if you want to go somewhere else other than your... More

At the recommendation of someone from a nearby hotel, we tried the Kochendorfer for a snack on the terrace. We ended up having a mixed experience. The desserts (a chestnut puree pastry and an apricot torte) and fruit-filled iced tea were all excellent, but the coffee was only so-so (at best) and service (both in the bakery and on the... More
