The very best restaurants in Davos-Klosters, Consensio’s Top Picks.
Where to eat out in Davos-Klosters? Located in the crosswinds of a variety of famed culinary regions, and a hub for international visitors, Davos is not merely a world-beating location for fantastic skiing, but a landmark for food tourism, too. The only issue for the alpine food connoisseur in Davos is sifting through the wealth of restaurant choices. Here, Consensio picks some of the very best restaurants in Davos-Klosters.
1. Restaurant Belvedere
Promenade 89, 7270 Davos, Switzerland
+41 81 415 60 00
Located in the Steigenberger Grandhotel Belvedere, off Promenade 89 – Restaurant Belvedere is an education in fine dining. Guests can choose from a 3-course or 7-course meal – depending on how well you’ve skied that day, presumably. Expect classic dishes, excellent quality, simple ingredients, fantastic presentation, and great service.
2. Gasthaus Höhwald
Monbielerstrasse 171, 7250 Klosters-Serneus, Switzerland
+41 81 422 30 45
An incredible blend of Austrian and Swiss cuisine, cooked over an open fire, Gasthaus Höhwald is one of two restaurants on our list with a Bib Gourmand recommendations on the Michelin guide. Expect hearty, traditional cuisine from this locally-renowned, family-run restaurant, which boasts incredible views of the surrounding valleys.
3. Restaurant Extrablatt
Promenade 90, 7270 Davos Platz
+41 81 414 61 70
You can find Extrablatt in the Kongress Hotel on Promenade 90. Widely recommended by guests, Extrablatt offers a wide range of European food – and caters well for those with food allergies and picky eaters. Extrablatt’s menu is generously portioned, though food can be provided in half-portions for those not particularly keen on the infamous alpine post-dinner bloat.
4. Golden Dragon
Platz CH, Talstrasse 3, 7270 Davos, Switzerland
+41 81 414 97 96
Moving well away from traditional alpine cuisine now – Golden Dragon is a marvellous Chinese restaurant; our second Bib Gourmand recommendation on this list. Touted as the ‘best Chinese food in Switzerland’, Golden Dragon has more than earned its buzz – you’ll find all the traditional Chinese dishes one would expect, all cooked to an exceptional standard. A great one to add to your list for a week away, as it will make a welcome change for the tastebuds during a week of schnitzel, alpine sauces and potatoes.
5. Alp Garfiun
7250 Klosters-Serneus, Switzerland
+41 81 422 13 69
This will be perhaps the most traditional alpine restaurant on the list – accessible via ski or – perhaps more excitingly, for those of you with flair – by horse-drawn sleigh, Alp Garfiun is a glorious hideaway, set in a delightful Swiss cottage, serving up all kinds of good old fashioned alpine dishes. Expect cheese. The macaroni and cheese with bacon and apple sauce is unparalleled, and the fondue nights on Saturday are absolutely unmissable. Great choices are available for vegetarians too, with curried lentil soups or exceptional alpine salads.
Very Honourable Mentions
Restaurant La Brezza, Arosa
Hotel Tschuggen, Tschuggentorweg 1, Tschuggentorweg 1, 7050 Arosa
+41 81 378 99 99
We couldn’t, in good conscience, put this list up without including a Michelin-starred restaurant. The only problem with La Brezza is that it’s a good hour and a half away from Davos, around the mountain, in the village of Arosa (a real culinary pilgrimage for foodies). Definitely worth the journey though, as the young chef, Marco Campanella presides over a sophisticated menu of light and accessible dishes, with two set menus packed full of delicious local produce. Arosa has its own smaller ski resort attached to it too, so perhaps worth a day trip.
