restaurant

open December 2020 to May 2021

In our new restaurant "Bergreich" we concentrate on what is around us. It is obvious that Zermatt is located in a mountainous area in Valais. However, it isn't always as apparent that around those mountains and valleys, incredible amounts of nutrients can be found and cultivated. Collaborating with local farmers and hunters, we constantly try to create an experience that reflects the surrounding's current seasonal offering.

warming food for cold days

During the cold winter months, you can expect warm, strengthening and rich food in the cosy atmosphere at the rex. Indulgence with a focus on sustainability and naturality, regional and seasonal. Just as it was common practice in the mountains back in the days, simply redefined.

natural wines

Like with our food, we also rely on nature for our wines. At the rex we only serve natural wines, which means wines to which nothing has been added, without additives.

Regional means not only Swiss wine to us, but refers to the whole of Europe. However it is important to us that the wine we serve is representative of its origin, meaning its region, and that we use local grape varieties that express the diversity of their origin.

My philosophy in cooking is simple. Find the best and freshest produce and let it speak for itself. Treat it with respect. I am a big fan of working closely with nature, finding great matches and pairing that with beautiful wines. Wine is also very important to me as they go hand in hand creating harmony, with the food and at the table."

By scraping through the region's farms, forests, and mountains himself, he is collecting the most interesting produce Zermatt and the region have to offer and brings them straight to your table.
