We were 8, at the table, nobody told us that we had to leave one hour after so before finishing the lunch, even if the restaurant was empty, we had to leave the table. Very very expensive and the waitress was rude.

The view is unparalleled and the food does not take away from it. The fondue, ribs, and soup I had were all fantastic, and the service matched the price-point (which is not cheap). I would liken this place to Nikki Beach but in the mountains and slightly less commercial. Very fun atmosphere, great decor, and interesting people.

Very cosy atmosphere for lunch at the mountains. Wine was very good and there was A large grill. Meat was delicious

Lovely location but the cost/value ratio isn't very impressive. 36 CHF for a tasteless veggie lasagna is crazy overpriced. Food arrived so quick after ordering it seemed it was only quickly heated up after being prepared earlier. Fine for a canteen but not when you pay 60 swiss for a lunch.

No one could ever dream of having such a marvelous view over st Moritz, it's icy lake and it's astonishing mountain chain. We went there for lunch on a splendid sunny day. It wasn't our first time in El Paradiso, and we didn't expect to have an outstanding meal, decent was more than enough knowing that Switzerland is not famous... More

If you want to chill like on top of the mountain with magnificent view and amazing atmosphere hardly other places can bit el Paradiso. It's certainly "Close to Heaven". Enjoy the view, food, music and sun from the top of the mountain. No matter what you do, if you are solo or with your soulmate, you feel complete and happy... More

Where were the waiters ? Why were they just talking to each other instead of serving tables ? Food was cold & super expensive ! Why did the neighbouring table get our wine ? So not worth it ! We heard so much about this place, I came all the way from Texas, but do not understand the hype !... More

Just back from New Years eve "celebration" at El Paradiso, and what a disappointment !!! First you have to pre-book and pay in advance, without knowing anything about what to get (in general fair enough) but - then you come to the place and what do you get: No welcoming drinks and strange looks because your daughters 10 and 16...

In El Paradiso you can enjoy fantastic views on the lakes and the whole valley. Whole infrastructure is state of the art, service is great. Choice of meals is good - great variety of wines and spirits. Prices are top notch as well
