The Sonnenhof is the brainchild of the Baumer family, he takes care of the kitchen and the cellar while she orchestrates the dining room. The menu depicts a vision of what refined well-healed clients look for. The Wine List does likewise with a great variety of European wines as well as the new Swiss wines, be them from Valais or...

I thought to spoil myself with a visit to Sonnenhof. Every time they know how to surprise with great food, more then large enough portions and the best view from the terrace. Worth every CHF. Thanks again!

It's game season so we tried the venison dishes and were delighted with the presentation, taste and flavour. Nothing to complain about here. The usual accompaniments of chestnuts, red cabbage and Brussel sprouts were served along with spätzle, and mixed wild mushrooms. And the plum was amazing! For starters we had the mixed salad and steak tartare, both of which... More

Best view in the Bernerhof Oberland. Colorful and manicured flower garden. And then there is THE FOOD. PERFECT. Since it is game season we wanted to try some of their house specialties. We tried two different types of deer with fantastic sauces and wonderful accompaniments. Presentation was great. This restaurant was packed on an off season night. That tells the... More

Went there because of the recommendations. Great service, food and view. Definitely going to come back again. I tried the fish ravioli with truffles and it was perfect . The rosti was also delicious. They do not accept postcards nor American express.

This restaurant is located on the hillside of Saanen. If you do not know it, it is relatively easy to find as the street signs although small are well posted. If you are going out for a romantic dinner and want to have nice views then this is the place to be.

Located above schönried, the Sonnenhof has certainly the most beautiful setting of the area. We have been going to this restaurant for over 30 years and the quality of the food has always remained excellent. It is Particularly recommendable to have lunch on the sunny terrace and enjoy great food the view and the clear air.

This restaurant run by Eric the chef and Louis his wife front of house has one of the most consistent quality of any restaurant I can think of. Everything is excellent I in particular like the tuna capacio and the filet steak on the brick but there is a perfect choice for every palate. Whatever you choose should you have... More

Been to this restaurant with business partners visiting Switzerland. The scenery is beautiful; literally the real life version of a postcard. Although it was sunny, the terasse was well shaded with sun umbrellas ensuring guests were comfortable. Food is good; enough choices and a well garnished wine list. We had meet cooked on a hot stone, some salads and a... More
