The place is nice but the food is nothing special and the price very expensive. Do not worth a visit at all. Service was good but when a problem with the bill showed up, friendlyness disappeared.

"Very casual but delicious dinner with Italian vibes" would be the best to describe this cosy, little restaurant. It is more like a trattoria than a restaurant with petit-squared white-blue-red table cloths. It is a little pricey if you compare it to your neighborhood pizzaria,...More

A good place to have dinner in St Moritz without paying an extremely high bill. Good things: good pizza (overpriced for being just pizza, but not expensive for St. Moritz's average level), nice crowd, cozy restaurant and valet service. Bad things: although I had a...More

The warm cosiness of old wood, the refined atmosphere that makes St. Moritz the epitome of Alpine charm, and authentic dishes that will dazzle even the most jaded foodie: a meal at Chesa Veglia is a truly unique experience, an absolute must-do while holidaying in Engadin, and a feast for all the senses. Chesa Veglia is Romansh for »old house«, but this time-honoured restaurant is actually much more than that. A historic farmhouse in the pulsing heart of St. Moritz, this beautiful building is as rich in atmosphere as it’s in history. It’s quite impossible to walk through its door without being instantly beguiled by its allure, be it the infectious laughter coming from the bar and the sound of bartenders mixing cocktails, the welcoming Alpine scents of ancient pine and the look and friendly feel of the wooden furnishings and vintage cutlery, or the sense of luxury permeating the air. The ingredients for a perfect night are all there, and all you have to do is sit back and enjoy. In 1936, Chesa Veglia was transformed by Badrutt’s Palace Hotel into an avant-garde meeting place for budding epicureans, the forefathers of today’s foodies. Since then, its irresistible atmosphere has attracted locals as well as tourists, not to mention VIPs such as Elizabeth Taylor and her entourage. To this day, Chesa Veglia is popular with the young, hip jet-set crowd fond of holidaying in St. Moritz, not just because of its unique ambience, but also thanks to its excellent food. When it comes to food, it’s hard, if not impossible, to beat the incredible variety offered at Chesa Veglia. The establishment boasts three different restaurants and two bars, all unique and resplendent in their own way, guaranteeing that everyone’ll find just what they’re looking for. Take the Patrizier Stuben for instance, stunning and elegant with its rustic Engadin decor: prepare to enjoy revisiting regional favourites, concocted by a chef who ensures that the fresh local ingredients used fulfil their potential and more. Traditional dishes with an incredible new spin grace the menu, side by side with other favourites such as caviar, foie gras and vegetarian specialities. The Pizzeria Heuboden, meanwhile, is all about Italian cuisine and, more specifically, pizza plays the starring role, as you might expect, prepared authentically in a wood-fired oven. If the idea of ordering pizza in the heart of the Alps doesn’t appeal to you, think again: here, you’ll bite into a crust that will definitely make a lasting impression. Most decadent of them all is the famous »Dama Bianca«, a white grande dame of a pizza, prepared with tasty taleggio, delicate buffalo mozzarella, pungent Parmesan and topped with generous shavings of truffle. At Grill Chadafo, open only during the winter season, delicious grill specialities await: the roasted Bresse chicken with rosemary is the restaurant’s signature dish and leaves even the most exhausted epicure lost for words. And while Chesa Veglia is famous chiefly for its food, there’s yet one more reason to pay it a visit. Before or after dining, two bars – the Polo Bar all year round and Bar Carigiet in the winter – invite guests to unwind, relax and enjoy an aperitif, a cocktail, a beer or a glass of wine. This is where memories are made, where guests soak up the incredible atmosphere and interior and linger for a little more fun before returning to the peace and quiet of their rooms in Badrutt’s Palace Hotel.
