Zermatt – On our first night in Zermatt we booked a table in the restaurant of the Backstage hotel. The restaurant kitchen is managed temporarly by Ivo Adam (www.seven-ascona.ch).
The hotel and restaurant was opened only in 2011 and designed by Heinz Julen, the renewed Swiss designer (www.heinzjulen.com).
No need to mention that the design of the whole house ist just stunning with the known combination of industrial and wooden material. The biggest chandelier is in the welcome area of the restaurant, including champagne glasses, violins, saxophones and even a mirror ball.
The food was just excellent and also the service. Specially to mention the sourdough bread that was baken at the table in a heated stone. After 30 very long minutes of waiting, we ate this fresh bread with different dips, oil and salt. We chose the menu with different wines offered and were amazed.
Although we paid a fortune for the evening I would recommend the visit (if Ivo comes back to Zermatt next winter).
