What are the best restaurants in Switzerland

The selection of good restaurants in Switzerland is huge: from pizzerias to Thai restaurants, there is something for everyone. The Lunchgate restaurant platform has identified the most popular restaurants in Switzerland.

For this purpose, 70,000 reviews were evaluated, which were submitted by guests on the platform. You can only rate who has made a reservation through the system. This meant that only people could cast their votes who actually ate on site.

The evaluation was carried out in four categories: food quality, service quality, ambience and price-performance ratio. A total of 385 restaurants were awarded the Swiss Guest Award 2020, which is awarded with a rating of 4.5 out of 5 points. Over 40 of them even received the highest ratings of 4.9 points this year.

These are the 50 best restaurants voted by guests:

1. Wirtschaft zur Traube, Ottikon near Kemptthal ZH

With top ratings in all categories, the Wirtschaft zur Traube in Ottikon is the most popular restaurant in Switzerland. Here you will find seasonal, home-style cuisine. The guest reviews are enthusiastic and grateful. "The culinary oasis in the Zurich Oberland" places great value on hospitality and fine food. This combination has obviously paid off and secured the first place in the Swiss Guest Awards for Wirtschaft zur Traube.

2. Hertenstein Panorama Restaurant, Ennetbaden AG

The Hertenstein Panorama Restaurant promises a "cozy atmosphere with a view" as well as enjoyment and joie de vivre for its guests. With a view of the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau, you can feast wonderfully there - depending on the weather, both inside and outside on the summer terrace.
