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.

Our brunch was chosen as the most popular brunch in Switzerland by the gourmet magazine Falstaff.
