Traditional-modern cooking in an outstanding atmosphere
Gasthaus Höhwald, near Klosters in Swiss Grisons, is well-known for its sophisticated food. An open barbecue and fire in the restaurant provides a comfortable and cosy atmosphere.
During the day, Gasthaus Höhwald is a popular destination that can be reached from Klosters via a 45 minute walk. The evening hours, however, are the real highlight, when the kitchen team turns regional produce into some truly excellent dishes. Traditional cuisine in a modern interpretation meets influences from the neighbouring countries Austria and Italy: Zürcher Geschnetzeltes with potato rösti, Spätzli dough and vegetables wrapped in chard and cooked in a beef broth, or Viennese veal schnitzel.“As for dessert, we offer, for example, Kaiserschmarrn with plums, called‘Tatsch’in Switzerland,”reveals host Silvia Dietrich, who runs the restaurant together with her husband Heribert.
At a height of 1,300 metres, the restaurant, in a typical Bündner house, is a meeting point for locals, hunting parties and guests from outside. The original hospitality can still be found today – in an Alpine atmosphere with fragrant wood, fine fabrics and an open fireplace. Gasthaus Höhwald is the ideal place for either a relaxed evening or a big celebration with family and friends – no matter if a birthday, a wedding or a baptism.
