St. Moritz Travel Journal

Relaxation, pampering, and adventure merge in Switzerland’s uber-expensive winter playland.

The best (vegan) meal we’ve ever tasted

I’m honestly not exaggerating when I said that it’s worth the trip to St. Moritz just to have dinner at Da Vittorio (which is in The Carlton Hotel). With a Michelin star and 17 Gault & Millau points, expect to have the meal of a lifetime in this glitzy restaurant. They have three menus: vegan, vegetarian, and traditional, each with a 5 or 7-course culinary journey full of surprises.

Every dish we were served was displayed as a different kind of unique artwork. From delicious Amuse Bouches to an other-worldly wine list, you won’t go wrong at this eatery featuring two of the world’s most creative chefs, brothers Enrico and Roberto Cerea. Their Michelin-star creations are redefining what the term “fine dining” means. Every detail is considered, right down to the Zalto wine glasses.

Each course was paired with an incredible biodynamic wine

This box of truffles filled the room with their scent. I can’t even imagine what this many truffles would cost!

The dishes were full of perfectly complimentary flavors

Delicate and delicious dessert. This meal could not have been any better!

    Switzerland is one of the most expensive countries in the world and spending holidays there can eat into your budget.

    Just stopped by to let you know that after reading this, I enjoyed 3 magical evenings at this 5 star, classic, luxurious and very comfortable hotel. I love that it’s perched over Lake St. Moritz and every room is situated to have this view. I was lucky to stay in the Chagall Suite. As the name implies, the theme was decorated colorfully in the spirit of Marc Chagall, the artist. I just love it. I hope everyone can experience what I experience there 🙂

    This hotel is just amazing, everything is top. Location the best in St. Moritz, service. The highlight is the Restaurant da Vittorio. The suites are just beautiful. Unfortunately, the hotel is closed for the Summer season.

    Truly “one of the leading hotels in the world”. During my 4 days’ stay, I experienced an excellent service, a friendly staff, and all the facilities and luxury one can ask for.
    Great view, great restaurant, a remarkable experience!

    If you ever want to experience a true 5 Star Hotel, you must stay at the Carlton Hotel in St. Moritz. From the rooms to the service and the food/restaurant offerings, it doesn’t get any better than this.
