Perfect seafood restaurant. Fish is super fresh since they have aquariums so all fish is still alive!! A must in St Moritz

This is an absolute top Restaurant offering great Food, especially seafood and fish. The owner gets his fresh Food daily from the Fish market in Milan and offers a great variety that is unsurpassed. The cooking is excellent and the Service is very professional and friendly. Good wine list. We always go there when in the area. Not to be... More

The restaurant Murtaröl offers daily from 12 pm to 10 pm stunning genuine products in all its simplicity. Thanks the experienced choice of the owner’s eye, Antonio Walther it is always the quality and the freshness of the product that makes the difference on the serving plate. Huge selection of freshwater and saltwater fish let any seafood lover's heart leap... More

Murtaröl serves delicious treats, from tuna tartare over shrimp pasta to lobster, you'll definitely find something you like. Prices are really high, service is good. Definitely recommendable. If warm, try to get a table outside and after dinner, order the small "try out" desserts.

Made special effort to Pre-book table for day of arrival. Setting is lovely and place is quite classy - food overall seems fairly good- ours was good. Service is "efficient", but sadly, lacked any warmth or personality whatsoever. When my wife happened to mention that we were celebrating my 60th birthday, the main waiter never even acknowledged her with a... More

Deliciouse food!!! We had a octopus carpaccio, mixed salat, tuna and salmon for starter, everything lovely prepared. For the main we took chateaubriand, which was also in perfect quality. Really friendly staff. Prices were ok, for what we got.

Even if the restaurant is listed under Sankt Moritz, you will need to take the short drive to Plaun da Lej. Nice setting just beside the lake. Seafood is great, staff helpful & friendly, they speak at least German, English and French. Family friendly. Ask the waiter to show the live fish & lobsters in the huge tanks to your... More

Excellent fish, excellent choice of food, nice location, excellent service, very nice waiters (the one with black air, sorry I don't remember his name, is super-friendly and very professional) It is expensive but worth it

Stopped of for a quick bite to eat on the way to St.Moritz. I didn't realise that this was a fish place, however they had a delicious beef skewer which I liked, for everyone in the group they had fish which they said was so fresh and delicious. The views were amazing and the waiters very friendly. I suppose even... More

Among Swiss Gourmets the Restaurant Murtarol is well known. But among tourists? Therefore I write this column in English, because this Restaurant is simply unique with its selection of at least - I guess - 80 to 90 different fishes from sea and lakes, crustaceans and Shell fish, all prepared carefully and in a variety of ways. And also -... More
