I was excited to know the Matterhorn had reopened under new management so couldn't wait to try it. Oh dear, our lunch was disappointing.. We waited 15 minutes before anyone came to take our order (and there was no one in the restaurant) My julienne salad had, if I was lucky, 1 slice of paper thin, processed ham and there... More

The Matterhorn hasn't changed much at all! The new owners even had the last owner in for a few weeks to help make sure everything stayed the same. So happy to still get the Schnitzel & Spatzli I got before! And it looks like they're open now Sundays too! Good to see some things stay the same. :)

Mission: Deliciousness in the Port Hope/Cobourg Area Background: the land of Subway, Mr. Sub, Pita King, McDonalds, Burger King, Harveys et al - as sadly all city/town areas are afflicted with, a breath of fresh air. Originally in the Toronto area (Scarborough, Ontario), thankfully for this reader they've moved to the Cobourg area. Review: The service was wonderful, if not... More

Whenever we dine at The Matterhorn restaurant we always thoroughly enjoy our meals. Regardless of what we order from the menu it is always prepared as requested. Service is excellent and waitresses are always friendly. Pricing for the quantity of food is very reasonable. Owners always make a point of thanking you for coming and saying good bye. The Matterhorn... More

Always enjoyable and they know us so it is nice to be able to chat with the owners. I enjoy the familiar menu and fortunately they do have a children's menu which is great for our 11 year old. I was introduced to spatzli on my first try and have loved it since. My older son even learned to make... More

My mother and I have gone to the Matterhorn for years and it is always our, "Go To" place when we want delicious food and excellent service regardless of the occasion. My husband and I were in Switzerland last year for a month or so enjoying the amazing cuisine and I mention this because the Matterhorn is every bit as... More

Once again we decided to go to this restaurant on King St. BUT HIS WILL BE OUR LAST Do they not know how to cook any other veggies than CARROLS AND PEAS? Roast beef their speciality was rather dry. The waitress was not familiar with the wines either. Décor could be upgraded as well. Sorry we won't be back. B... More

We have gone to this restaurant many times over the past 25 years, vowing each time never to return. The same dreary overlooked carrots and peas, overcooked roast beef (even when rare is requested) but given the lack of restaurants in Cobourg, we returned this evening. The waitress had no idea what she was doing, and the white wine was... More

Hungarian anyone....love their food. On a busy night, it's quite loud so it's difficult to entertain a conversation in addition to music being loud. I personally find this irritating. I prefer a quieter ambiance when dining...but that is just me.
