QUAFF FINE WINES
AND LET US WOW YOU
Chef’s apprentice, Commis de Cuisine, Chef de Partie. Learning from scratch. But it didn’t take long: just five years after his apprenticeship, Rolf Möller became a sous chef at the five-star Park Hotel Vitznau, before becoming a sous chef at ‘La Brochette’ in Oslo and then at the luxury Savoy Hotel in Arosa.
In 1988, he trained as a chef de cuisine. In the same year, he dished up 16 GaultMillau points as soon as stepped into the role of Executive Chef at Park Hotel Vitznau.
Ten years later, he worked as a chef in Ascona, at the five-star Parkhotel Delta. He founded ‘Sapori del Sud Ascona Sagl’, focusing on every aspect of the speciality business, from procurement through to coaching and catering.
He has been cooking for our guests in Brigels, spoiling them and surprising them, since 2010.
Sophisticated elegance is the order of the day. At Ustria Miracla, we offer a passionate celebration of culinary highlights. A tantalising menu, excellent service and perfect wine pairings ensure that every evening at Ustia Miracla is an unforgettable experience. At least, until the next one...
Easy-going casual dining in an urban alpine atmosphere. At Da Rubi restaurant, we cater to your every whim, from rustic fondues to tartes flambées for you to add your own toppings to. Our legendary raclette deluxe, which includes a wine pairing, will leave raclette fans drooling – a gourmet contrast that blows our guests’ minds! When the weather’s nice, you can enjoy the entire menu on the sun terrace or in our sunset lounge.
International cuisine and regional products – does that sound like a contradiction in terms? Not at all: it’s our recipe for success! Ten different cheeses from the village dairy, milk fresh from our Brigels cows, Grisons salami and meat specialities from Schmed the village butcher, bread and pastries from Gabriel, the village baker… and all our fruit and vegetables are sourced in Switzerland. Enjoy!
Bar Da Rubi
Have you heard of the
«Arc de Brigels»?
From international cocktails to traditional long drinks, there’s hardly anything we can’t conjure up. Start the day with a ristretto, enjoy an aperitif before dinner and wrap up the day with a nightcap in the wee hours. The ‘Arc de Brigels’, our walk-in wine store, is the bar’s architectural highlight. You’ll be tempted to stroll through it – and to pause for a while, rummaging through the bottles it houses. Now, how about a glass of port?
‘Lavalino’ is our cosy fondue lounge, done up in an alpine style. In winter, enjoy traditional fondue and raclette specialities (of course!) in rustic surroundings designed with a loving eye for detail. ‘Lavalino’ is available for groups of six or more – and a great atmosphere is guaranteed!
a smoker’s delight
At this hour, the library merely serves as a backdrop. As the fire crackles away in the hearth, cigar aficionados can truly indulge in their passion. Can you imagine a more stylish way to round off a busy day on holiday in Brigels than with a fine hand-rolled La Val cigar in one hand and an exquisite glass of Armagnac, say, in the other? And of course, our fumoir is also home to a small selection of hand-picked spirits, from rum to whisky through to port, Madeira and cognac. Incidentally, the air circulates around the fumoir just comme il faut. After all, you want to leave having enjoyed your cigar – not with its smoke still clinging to your clothes. Our three very own cigar variants from the Dominican Republic are rightly considered to be first-rate. They have a light taste and burn wonderfully, right to the very end. They’re a dream! You wouldn't be the first guest to take a box (or several!) home with them...
