Leukerbads emphasis on wellness and all things active is reflected in the towns cuisine, be it in the hearty meals catering for passing hikers or the minimalist, health-conscious food served in gourmet establishments.
For those fresh from the thermal spa, light, delicate meals can be found at the Relais & Chateaux Hotel, La Source des Alpes
. The famed restaurant, La Malvoisie
, has been awarded an astonishing 15 Gault Millau
points for its Mediterranean dishes whose flavours seamlessly blend together to create unique tastes.
Further cementing itself as a foodie destination, the regions Tourist Office established a dedicated culinary excursion that leads walkers through the village and surrounding municipalities, stopping to enjoy the local specialities along the way.
One of the sojourns on the gastronomic trail is the restaurant Waldhaus
. Here, it is all about location, location, location. Overlooking the entire Leukerbad village from a perfect vantage point, the typically alpine restaurant serves typically alpine food. The house rosti, red wine fondue or succulent entrecote will be sure to satiate even the most ravenous of hungers after a lengthy walk.
Haute cuisine aficionados will be in their element at Hotel Terminus
. Diners at the restaurant here have the rare chance to sample the expert culinary skills of Didier de Courten, a chef of such skill that he has not one, but two Michelin stars and 19 Gault Millau points. An architect of taste, de Courten creates dishes in three specific dimensions: texture, flavours and emotion.
The eclectic mixture of impressive restaurants in Leukerbad is only set to enhance as work progress on the 51 Spa Residences
. As a partner of SDG
, the Ginza Restaurant Project
will be using their extensive experience in launching and managing international restaurants to create an entirely new and unique eating space and experience in the heart of the town.
