Restaurant Riffelhaus 18532582 m a. s. l.

Restaurant Riffelhaus 1853

This place is all about fondue, Käseschnitte (Swiss cheese on toast) and rösti. Restaurant Riffelhaus 1853 is the home of Swiss specialities, and its röstis are a particular favorite among its many regulars. A rösti has just three ingredients: potatoes, salt and pepper. That really is all there is to it. Of course, that shouldn’t stop you from adding onions, or even ordering the deluxe version with bacon. However you like yours, this place, perched over 2,500 meters above sea level, elevates the humble rösti to a work of art.
