With respect and love, local, down-to-earth, almost always homemade – the restaurant at the foot of the Morteratsch glacier in Pontresina

From here, from now, uncomplicated and “uu guat” – that’s how we cook, that’s how we like it!

The Morteratsch restaurant at the foot of the glacier in Pontresina presents itself as authentic, fresh and local. This is what makes our cuisine so convincing. Head chef Guido Varriale and his fantastic crew put in a lot of effort every day!
The hostess and wine lover Julia Bohren takes care of the wines, many of these good bottles are purchased directly from the winemaker. We don't want to miss the personal exchange and the small friendships. We are happy to recommend the right wine to go with your dish.

We work with numerous suppliers from the Engadin and the Puschlav. They are not wholesalers, but people with an enormous passion for what they do. An example of this is the Puschlaver Zanetti Butcher Shop, which has been producing and selling local fresh meat and meat specialties of the highest quality for over 100 years. We source our coffee from Café Badilatti, Zuoz the highest coffee roasting plant in Europe. The eggs are from happy hens from Bio-Hof Azienda Pedretti in Puschlav, the lamb from Bio-HofCasty in Zuoz etc.

Combine a trip to the breathtaking Val Morteratsch, with its impressive mountain scenery and its easily accessible glacier, with a visit to our restaurant, located directly on the Pontresina-Morteratsch railway line of the Rhaetian Railway.
