The five star Restaurant - to chill out.

Restaurant Alexandre combines a cosy atmosphere and a spectacular view of the Matterhorn with the exquisite cuisine of regional and Mediterranean specialities. The dining room, at the heart of the hotel and with wood-panelled walls, exudes Alpine romanticism. The restaurant offers more than a quick breakfast or a brief evening meal. In the morning, enjoy a substantial breakfast with regional delicacies, a wide selection of healthy juices and freshly prepared scrambled eggs. In the evening, the Alexandre brings the Mediterranean to the mountains. Dining here is a must for anyone who loves fresh products from the sea, lakes or rivers, and meat lovers won't feel short-changed at the Restaurant Alexandre either.

During the winter months, you can enjoy "Live Cooking" daily. Several times a week, we put on themed buffets, such as a delicious dessert buffet or the large appetizer buffet with seafood specialities, daily-caught fish and a wide selection of regional and Mediterranean meat specialities and tartare dishes. In the summer, the terrace with a breath-taking view of the Matterhorn and the surrounding mountain panorama beckons you to linger a while.
