    Restaurant La Riva was the winner of Best Austrian Wine List in Star Wine List of the Year Switzerland 2021. ”This wine list really covers everything when it comes to styles, regions and price levels. What was really interesting to me was the red wine selection that covered not only the classical Austrian varieties like Zweigelt and Blaufränkisch but also international varieties like Pinot Noir. I was also very impressed by the selection of sweet wines,” said jury member Raimonds Tomsons about the winning list.

    With lots of empty bottles lined up as an indicator of previous good evenings full of great wine, this restaurant has a rustic and rather French bistro-style that invites you with a cosy atmosphere. The owner, known as “Bü,” is almost always around and always up for some advice for the wine selection or a good portion of Swiss humour. The food is quite classic, ranging from a nice steak tartar to some traditional Swiss dishes.

    This restaurant appeals to the type of guest that prefers a cosy rather than a modern interior. Walking into the restaurant, you will feel like you're entering a parlour with small tables and a homely atmosphere. You have the choice between a weekly changing five or seven-course menu; à la carte is not available here. The cuisine has a French touch, with seasonal and locally sourced products.

    An open kitchen with a big grill station nestled in this urban style restaurant that reminds you of a former factory is probably the first thing the guest notices when walking in Smith & the Luma. As the name reveals, you can enjoy some nice pieces of Luma meat besides some other high-quality cuts that will make every meat lover smile. With the wine shop connected to the restaurant, the guest is invited to walk around the shop with an aperitif, to look at the range and select a bottle of wine from the shelves.
