The young head chef of restaurant focus, Nenad Mlinarevic’s culinary skills reflect the restaurant's inspiration from water, nature and the views across the lake towards the mountains of Central Switzerland. He places value on using quality regional products and combines these with great passion to create his 9 course Menu.
Originally from Zurich, he trained at Hotel Waldhaus Dolder and later worked at restaurant Wiesengrund and Schlosshotel Schauenstein, where he worked side by side with Andreas Caminada for two years.
Having worked with some of the world's best chefs, Chef Mlinarevic was awarded 2 Michelin stars after only six months at focus, as well as 17 Gault Millau points, making it one of the best fine-dining restaurants in Switzerland.
