We dropped in for dinner with no reservation and were fortunate to get a great table in a back cubby away from the grill fire (which is probably the preferred seating area in Winter!) as it was the tail end of a very warm day and it was quiet and nice. We had some good Austrian house wine, and enjoyed... More

The upstairs restaurant (since the recent redecoration) has lost a lot of it's charm and now resembles more of a "cookie-cutter" Zermatt restaurant rather than the old-style stube. The food quality remains the same, but the service is now bordering on poor (downstairs is an absolute shambles and should be avoided at all costs). There are far better places to... More

Decided to experience our first 'fondue' at Pollux and we were not disappointed. The staff were welcoming, pleasant and happy to explain various aspects of the menu to us. The food was exception and plentiful, difficult to finish in fact because the portions were so generous. Great value for money, we would happily recommend Pollux to other visitors.

Friendly efficient service by waitress who seems to speak every language. Choice of breads, heaps of pickles for free and very generous portions of excellent home dried meat and fondue.

A cosy bar with lots of comfortable seating and a roaring fire. Table service is very attentive and the 'nibbles' which accompany drinks are a nice touch.

Went twice for early evening drinks and very much enjoyed the cosy, warm ambience. Service getting drinks at our table was very efficient but we did end up having to go to the bar to pay. They did seem a little understaffed for the number of guests but, having said that, it's easy to see why people flock here after... More
