In the Swiss canton of St. Gallen, indulge in a relaxation and taste experience immersed in a natural setting on the edge of the woods. The vegetation surrounding Il Segreto is lush and uncontaminated, in a land rich in stimuli that provides ingredients aplenty for locally-oriented recipes. There’s its aromatic herbs plot, the nearby mountains where wild hers are gathered, and much attention is paid to the produce of each season. Chef Martin Benninger shows indefatigable dedication to his work. He focuses on the ultimate customer care, the most any guest could ever want out of a meal. Guests can enjoy the opportunity for ample outdoor dining in summer and a cigar lounge for cocktails before lunch or dinner. The tablescape is just as sober and elegant. The cuisine is sincere and harmonious. It features locally-sourced ingredients, purity when it comes to tastes, and every now and then some especially creative flourishes. On the menu are Rheintal asparagus, common whitefish and pike-perch fresh from Lake Constance, and, of course, selections from the grand tradition of Swiss cheese production. The dining room staff is discreet and unflappable. Let them suggest the right wines for your food choices, and no nuance of this experience will escape you.
