The new entry this year is the Schloss Schauenstein at Fürstenau in canton Graubünden, which enters at 30th in the rankings of London’s Restaurant Magazine.

It joins the Hôtel de Ville in Crissier, canton Vaud, which has improved its position by two places and ranks 14th. It is run by Phillipe Rochat.

The chef at the Schloss Schauenstein is Andreas Caminada, who has twice been awarded the title of Chef of the Year (2008 and 2010) and is highly regarded as a shooting star on the Swiss gastronomical scene.

The organisers say the Schloss Schauenstein “has been one of Switzerland’s worst kept culinary secrets since influential guide book Gault-Millau named Caminada as Discovery of the Year in 2005”.

A Danish restaurant, the Noma in Copenhagen, came first in the standings, pushing the previous restaurant at the top, the El Bulli in Spain, into second position.

The list of “The World’s Best 50 Restaurants” is compiled by 26 regional juries from around the world; they include 800 chefs, journalists and experts. and agencies
