Surprised they were open on a Sunday, because most restaurants are closed in cobourg that day. It was a nice surprise. Excellent service and food. We will go back for sure. They even have a veggie option with eggplant. Lots of butter and salt, which was fine with us lol. The schnitzel was thin and crispy and yummy. Loved the... More

My wife and made a reservation for dinner to try this restaurant. When we arrived there was no one to meet us until I got the waitress's attention. Upon seated, we occupied our time waiting by swatting the flies. I ordered the classic schnitzel wiener and my wife ordered the pan fried sole as well as two glasses of wine.... More

Apparently the Matterhorn has a long and illustrious history. It's under new ownership the last few years and things were bound to change. So, we definitely enjoyed our meal there. The staff were very friendly, although there were too few which resulted in some surrounding bustle (which they preformed with smiles all the time). Our food was competent, not extraordinary...

I grew up around the corner from this restaurant when it started out on the western border of Scarborough. Imagine my surprise to find it, p. several decades later, in Cobourg! The mAtterhorn recently changed hands but the recipes that I enjoyed then have been shared and taught to the new owners and my recent experience there convinced me that... More

We use to be very regular visitors to the Matterhorn when it was owned and operated by Werner and his wife. We went back a year or so ago shortly after it changed hands and not only was the food nearly as good but we had a really ditzy server who totally mixed up our orders. . This evening was... More

Re-opened May 2014 under new ownership. This is our 1st visit since. Still a nice atmosphere, cozy setting. The new owner's have added some new menu items, we'll have to sample on return visits (which we do plan to make). Our server Kayla was very friendly, attentive & knowledgable about the menu & wine selections. Great that they feature Ontario... More

We are visiting the Matterhorn regularly. The service always excellent and the server (older lady) even helped me to put my coat on when we were living. Not so many places doing that these days! The food were better than ever! We are regulars just because the quality is always the same! We love the specials! Thank You! B&K

We were in town for the weekend and were pleased to discover somewhere to get authentic schnitzel, spaetzle and red cabbage -- delicious! The service was great and we thoroughly enjoyed our meal. We'll be back :)
