In an enviable location on the Corviglia, with breathtaking views, El Paradiso is the fanciest of the St. Moritz mountain huts – and that's saying something. There's a large al fresco grill station, a bar with red-lined stools, and seemingly every table, bench and chair is covered in something soft, a lambs' wool throw here, a crimson blanket there. If it's too cold to sit outside, the dining room indoors is utterly chic, with grey linen–lined benches and massive picture windows. In short, this is a place where you want to loosen your ski boots and settle in for a while. Locals grumble a bit how chi-chi the formerly laid-back ski hut has become; i.e. how lofty the prices now are, but the food is excellent and the setting cannot be beat. Non-skiers need not worry: the Paradiso is easy to reach on foot via a 20-30 minute walk from the top of the Signal Gondola. On a sunny day during the ski season, reservations are crucial.
