Switzerland’s Top Restaurants and Food Experiences

proudly boasts a smorgasbord of must try foods that could be considered as staples. With the strongest influences coming from its population’s German, Italian and French roots, traditional Swiss meals are often simple but tasty. Available almost everywhere from Michelin-starred fine dining establishments to family-run restaurants, these popular dishes include such savoury delights as rösti (often served with Zürcher geschnetzeltes, a thinly sliced meat), fondues and saffron risotto, to name but a few.

While Switzerland is if course famous for its cheeses, including such mouth watering varieties as Emmentaler and Gruyère, it has also earned a reputation as the home of some of the world’s top sweet treats. Topping the list is, of course Swiss chocolate, lead by well-known brands as Lindt and Toblerone, as well as countless local chocolatiers.
