Chef Fine Dining
Heiko Nieder has been Chef Fine Dining since the opening. He has received a number of awards for his creations, which are marked by their impressive array of flavours. In 2010, he was awarded his second Michelin star, while in October 2012, he received point number 18 and the title of “Most Improved Chef of the Year” from GaultMillau. July 2013 saw him crowned “Hotel Chef of the Year” by the Swiss business magazine “Bilanz” as part of their annual hotel ratings. GaultMillau Germany presented him with the award for “Best German Chef Abroad” in November 2014. In the same year, inspired by Heiko Nieder, the Dolder Grand launched the gourmet festival THE EPICURE, which is now held every year in autumn. In October 2018 Heiko Nieder received his 19th GaultMillau point and the title “GaultMillau Chef of the Year 2019”.
While some of our staff have contact with our guests, others remain behind the scenes – but all of them are equally important. They are the ones whose precisely coordinated teamwork creates the unique gourmet experience at The Restaurant.
