I had a "traditional" meal here of polenta valdaostana, with sausages in a beany sauce. The food was par for the course, the place is small and for hearty eaters, nothing else expected. It was good though and it's very atmospheric and friendly, you could also sit outside. I was there to visit the museum and hadn't done anything very... More

i would strongly recommend stopping here for lunch during your visit at the glacier. in addition to offering more scenic views than the huts at the two previous cable car stops, the restaurant in itself is equipped with nice staff, rich menu and a fairly comprehensive wine list. portions are abundant and food quality won't let you down. warm cheese...

The best of the mountain lunch restaurants we visited in Cervinia, we came back several times. The chocolate cake with berry sauce was a very good.

The rifugio guide cervino is one of the top addresses in Zermatt when skiing. The team offers excellent italian food and wine and this at 3400 meters above sea level! The restaurant has 2 sections, the lower level is the place to go for connaisseurs. Booking is essential at winter weekends. Atmosphere: very casual and cosy places, can even be... More

A rather simple place on the edge between Cervinia and Zermatt. The food was OK and the staff were nice and efficient.

Today with blue sky and no wind, the restaurant at 3500 m level, offers breathtaking views. The goulash soup was very tasty and with lots of big meat pieces. The forest fruit pie-cake looked delicious but was too sweet.

10 euros for wurst and chips and it arrived quickly. But of an odd serving system that you pay one person and then give your ticket to someone else who serves you your food.

Great food and atmosphere but beware the toilets are not the best and they can run of water for flushing the toilets. That is the only downside, otherwise I would have rated it very good.

Given it's location (at 3,400m), this restaurant is excellent. We went on a Sunday and it was crowded, but they managed to fit everyone in and we had some great food (recommend the steaks) and an excellent wine selection. The service was fast, friendly and personal. Highly recommended.
