Best of Swiss Gastro - Gastroawards

Best of Swiss Gastro, BoSG, is the Swiss Gastronomy Award and Restaurant Guide. Every year, restaurants, cafes, take-aways, bars, ski huts – in short: catering companies of any kind – can apply for the much-coveted award.

In spring, the expert jury of Swiss restaurateurs and industry specialists comes together and evaluates the approximately 200 submitted concepts. The jury previously included personalities like Rene Schudel, Meta Hiltebrand and Yvo Adam. The video below (in German) will give you a bit of insight into the process:

The public vote

In addition to the panel of experts, people who enjoy eating, drinking and partying can recommend and rate their favorite outlet. Those restaurants that are ranked among the best in Switzerland in November can be particularly proud: is there a better distinction than that of their own guests, who proactively recommend the place? Before the audience can vote, the jury evaluates all candidates. Independent industry experts, restaurateurs, journalists and former winners make a preliminary decision and select which companies with the quality seal “Best of Swiss Gastro” are to be nominated for the public vote.

The rating mechanism

The Best of Swiss Gastro Award is the largest restaurant competition in Switzerland, and the most honest! There are no anonymous test eaters in a restaurant who then attribute stars and points to their gusto. No, every business can join the competition, whether it is a bar, takeaway, café or family restaurant. The ranking list in each category is established by counting to 1/3 each the jury vote, the public vote and the vote by the guests of a specific establishment. The overall score thus reflects a 360° evaluation and guarantees that the rating is absolutely democratic!

Awarded are those who achieve a seal of approval in a particular category. Then the three best (1st – 3rd rank per category) will be determined and receive a Cup. The overall winner across all categories receives the Master Best of Swiss Gastro award.

The different categories

The following categories are available: Activity (Leisure & Sport) for outlets that offer their guests not only good food, but also an activity. Here you will find destination restaurants, fun park restaurants, museum, zoo and beach restaurants as well as après-ski chalets and country inns.

Bar & Lounge (Nightlife), the after-sunset category so to speak, provides a stage for all new and innovative bars, lounges, clubs and cultural institutions. Classic (Traditional) stands for all traditional, classic and authentic restaurants and pubs with specific Swiss cuisine. Coffee (Café & Tea Rooms) is the category that represents the best, the most beautiful and cozy cafes and bistros of the country. It’s not just about ambience; it’s also about coffee and how the establishments embrace coffee culture.

The category Fine Dining (Gourmet) is home to the extraordinary, upscale and individual cuisine for which guests like to pay a little more. For this they get food and drinks at the highest level. Nouvelle Cuisine can also be found in this category. On the Move, on the other hand, pays tribute to catering establishments that focus on travelers and people on-the-go: take-aways, food trucks, motorway service stations, airports, train stations, shopping centers, or delivery services.

Trend (Innovation) unites trendy bars and establishments that inspire people with their originality. In the category International (meaning “typical of the country of origin”) cuisines from around the world are honored: whether cooked in a wok, with curry, conjured in a pizza oven… culinary delights from near and far are celebrated!
