The wonderful hosts Gabrielle and Daniel had created a great evening for our global company dinner. Food and wine were so delicious and the atmosphere was warm and familiar. The idea from Gabrielle with "only one bottle of wine" for 45 people was great - it was a 12 litre bottle of fantastic swiss red wine.

If you're lucky it will be some dried venison or similar which come straight from the hunt in which Daniel does himself. After aperitif you are brought to... More

We ate at Schlussel last night with a couple of friends. Once again we were greeted outside by the owners and offered an apero in the downstairs shop. There were olive oils, pestos & jams for tasting as well as dried venison that the owner hunted in the mountains behind the restaurant - lovely touch. We were welcomed to the... More

The restaurant philosophy is simple and straight forward: «fresh, uncomplicated and good». We use exclusively fresh products like cheese from the neighbouring alps, locally produced spirits and meats from local farmers. The menus offered depend on the season, our guests desire as well as the daily changing mood of your host and chef, making it clear: «we serve what we have».

Please note that dinner is served in the restaurant from Wednesday to Saturday, lunch is served Sundays. Because the restaurant is rather small, table reservations are essential.
Room reservations do not automatically include a table reservation.
