Dine At Altitude at The Japanese by The Chedi Andermatt
The Japanese by The Chedi Andermatt has just been awarded a Michelin star. This mountainside restaurant in Andermatt now qualifies not just as Switzerland’s highest Japanese restaurant, but as the world’s highest Japanese restaurant with a Michelin star.
It is located directly on the ski slopes at Gütsch in Andermatt, 2344 m above sea level, with panoramic views of the Gotthard Massif, the Oberalp Pass and the Ursern Valley.
Executive Chef Dietmar Sawyere
Executive Chef Dietmar Sawyere, who already has a Michelin star for The Japanese Restaurant at the Chedi Andermatt hotel, prepares amazing Japanese delicacies which include shidashi bentō, omakase and kaiseki menus, sushi and tempura specialties. Japanese Bento Boxes are also served and you can enjoy them directly on the terrace overlooking the slopes.
Previously a chef at the Dorchester and the Savoy in London he was delighted at the news of the Michelin star he is now based in Andermatt which is quickly becoming a Swiss Gourmet hotspot as another mountain restaurant, The Restaurant Gütsch by Markus Neff, which was also awarded a Michelin star this year.
Due to Covid regulations you can’t currently eat inside the beautifully designed 38 seater restaurant (hopefully this will change in March) but you can have a take away and eat on the restaurant terrace with views over the mountain.
