Gourmandising with mountain panorama
Standing at a scenic location 2,300 metres above sea level, you’ll find an impressive building that offers alpine comfort and breathtaking views of the mountains surrounding Gotthard, with open fireplaces, large windows, and three terraces. The building, designed by the London architect Christina Seilern, is located in the immediate vicinity of the Gütsch Express gondola summit station, and starting with the winter season 2019/2020, it now features two restaurants offering culinary enjoyment at the highest level – in every sense.
The Japanese by The Chedi Andermatt
The Japanese Restaurant, which is located in the Chedi Andermatt Hotel and boasts a Michelin star and 16 Gault Millau points, has opened a mountainside offshoot – The Japanese by The Chedi Andermatt. The kitchen is helmed here as well by Executive Chef Dietmar Sawyere, where he and his cooks prepare authentic Japanese dishes. Will the highest-lying Japanese restaurant soon become the highest-praised?
Gütsch by Markus Neff
The second restaurant on Gütsch is headed by Markus Neff, named Chef of the Year in 2007 by Gault Millau, together with Maren Müller, Charlie Neumüller, and David Gruss. Until 2018 the four-member team successfully operated Restaurant Fletschhorn in Saas Fee, which had received 18 points from Gault-Millau. You can expect bold, rigorously composed dishes without any frills or showmanship, but with a great deal of respect and love for local products. No added touches are necessary – the spectacular view looking out toward the Oberalp Pass and Gotthard and down into the Urseren Valley is the show in and of itself.
