Le Chat-Botté has recently been completely refurbished. The new décor is stunning! Although nothing extravagant (apart from a few candelabra!), the light shades on both wall and floor and the table settings (set well enough apart to enable a private conversation) give a cosy yet elaborate atmosphere! The food is awesome, a pleasure for the eyes and the palate! The... More

Out of all the places I have ever eaten in Switzerland, this is by far the best. Attentive but not intrusive staff add to the experience. Expensive but for those special occasions, worth every Swiss Franc!

We had a romantic evening here and it was truly wonderful. The seven-course tasting menu is a fantastic culinary experience. Every dish was well prepared from good ingredients and we left feeling extremely content. I would strongly recommend that you combine the menu with the wine tasting selection suggested by the sommelier. He did an amazing job in combining interesting... More

While you will enjoy an amazing meal this is much more about the experience and worth every penny. We knew this would be a large ticket item on our trip but we wanted a really good dinner and enjoy a local style meal. They did not disappoint. I highly recommend the full 7 course meal, it is more expensive but... More

Dinner for 2 at Le Chat-Botte, is really something special. Service is excellent, just the right level of attentiveness. We had the menu, all courses were excellent, paired with a nice bottle of swiss wine, recommended by the sommelier. Very nice evening, would definitely return.
