THIS IS THE CASE OF RESTAURANTE D’ELS ARTISTES, where the Swiss owner and chef Roland Broggi gained a position amongst the finest chefs in Switzerland and maintained it for many years.
Roland arrived in Altea eight years ago, after retiring from the demanding world of Swiss cuisine. But whoever carries cuisine in his genes finds it hard to lay down the ladle. And this is why Roland, together with his wife, Helen van Esch, decided to set up a new restaurant which will continue to offer quality and warmth, without too much stress from the gastronomy guides.
Swiss cuisine evokes sophistication, innovation, precision and superior quality, but when it comes to high score in the prestigious Gault Millau gastronomy guide, we are talking about the frontiers of the finest cuisine in the entire world.
It’s no wonder their restaurant is always full, nor is it surprising to see smiles of satisfaction on their customer faces as they come out the door. D’els Artistes has become a major venue in the town to fine dining, and to achieve this Roland and Helen always ensure that every single detail in quality restaurateuring is take care of.
They say they have several secrets that are key to their success: Exquisite attention to their customer, of course, but also the ambience, the casual but elegant touch you notice in D’els Artistes, and the skill of this master chef, but maybe the topping should go to the quality and freshness of each and every product they offer, because the difference in flavour between an artificially grown product and a naturally grown one is huge.
