Labels & Awards

Awarded by professional juries and by our guests

The Swiss-Chalet Merlischachen and the Restaurant Swiss-Chalet are members of various important culinary labels and have been awarded several times by professional juries or in public surveys. We are proud of the following memberships, labels and awards.

Restaurant Swiss-Chalet

The Restaurant Swiss-Chalet distinguishes its cuisine from regional Schwyz or Swiss ingredients. We pay particular attention to outstanding quality when it comes to meat. You will experience a show effect when the first bottle is decanted with a saber during the Champagne Cascade.


The restaurant Swiss-Chalet and the Chalet-Bar were awarded 3 out of 4 wine glasses and 2 out of 4 forks by the falstaff community.

Lunchgate Swiss Guest Award

We are one of Lunchgate’s Guest Award winning restaurants and have been awarded 4.6 out of 5.0 possible stars based on 81,000 genuine reviews from our guests.

Most popular brunch

Our brunch was chosen as the most popular brunch in Switzerland by the gourmet magazine Falstaff. After a nomination phase, it was possible to vote for the most popular brunch in Switzerland during more than two weeks. In total, more than 1,800 votes were cast. The “Swiss-Chalet Merlischachen” made it to first place with 589 votes and almost 33 percent.


Best of Swiss Gastro Award

We were awarded the Best of Swiss Gastro Award “EXCELLENT” in the category “Classic”.

Wine list

The Swiss-Chalet restaurant not only relies on regional and Swiss ingredients for its dishes but also on fine Swiss wines on its wine list.  From “Vinum” the Restaurant Swiss-Chalet  was awarded with the “Swiss Wine List Award” in Bronce in the restaurant category “good home cooking”.

Dinner for Two

The “Dinner for two” enjoyment booklet for the year 2024 is now available in a limited edition. It includes a selection of 15 of the leading restaurants in the Zug/Schwyz region. Enjoy 15 unforgettable evenings for two spread over the whole year and let the top chefs spoil you with original dishes. The advantage is: if you own one of these booklets, you order two main courses of your choice and get the cheaper one served free of charge.

The “Dinner Booklet” is the perfect gift for anyone who often goes out to eat, appreciates good gastronomy, wants to indulge in culinary delights and wants to get to know new restaurants.

Our esteemed guests will receive the “Dinner for two” enjoyment booklet at the preferential price of only CHF 69, instead of CHF 74. By the way, the actual value of the offer is around CHF 600! The great thing about the “Dinner for Two” booklet is that the purchase price pays for itself after just two visits to the restaurant.
