Switzerland Restaurants

Switzerland's restaurants range from white-tablecloth Michelin-starred establishments in Geneva to Alpine huts atop soaring peaks serving raclette and other traditional dishes that are even tastier when paired with mountain air. In every part of the country, you'll find local products—cheeses, cured meats, and wine among them—highlighted by chefs. It's a dining scene that is as varied as the cultures in this nation at the heart of Europe.

Place de l'Hôtel-de-Ville 1, 1096 Bourg-en-Lavaux, Switzerland
In Switzerland, the closer you get to France, the better and more buttery the cuisine gets. This holds especially true for the old-school French comfort food you’ll find in Lavaux, the necklace of UNESCO-listed wine villages dangling on a...
