I visited this restaurant after participation in the engadinner sommerlauf with my family with two small kids, the place was great the food is very nice, prices accordingly to the place and they even had some toys to entertain the kids while we were there, they also have a good option in the kinder menu.

Superb experience. Food fantastic. Hosting superlative. Ambience amazing. If you only go to one restaurant in Samedan it must be La Padella.

Try to book here if you got a chance. Go for their famous beef Woronoff and have some of the rare Swiss red wine from Graubuenden (the ones that never leave the country and are very, very difficult to get anywhere). My wife's Roesty were excellent too and so were our starters and desserts! Just remember, call them in advance... More
