Tucked away, off the main paths, a great place to escape the cold rain and settle into a cozy fireside dinner. Warm wood paneling , welcoming staff and vibrant conversation filling the space. White tablecloths, candles and a busy grill turning out well prepared, locally sourced, quality meats dishes. From the starters, to the Valois wines, the steak au poivre,... More

Very good restaurant in a traditional decoration, with good and copious food, very good service, rustic cooked on a grill cook, swiss price (you pay for what you get). We had a very nice Chateaubriand :-)

This was an absolutely delicious meal of beautifully cooked meat. You get two servings, which was a wonderful surprise as the first serving was large enough! It was a lovely, cosy restaurant, and the service was great.

The food was great - but smaller portions on big white plates. The grill items were exceptional. Staff couldn't have been more accommodating. The atmosphere was ok - not as cozy as I like but still a great overall experience.

The olympic glory of Sarajevo 1984 may be wearing off, but Max Julen continues to lend his name to a top grill in Zermatt. The meat is like butter, the vegetables delicious, and the starters topnotch. No complaints about the desserts either, other than that they are oversized. Friendly service that stays relaxed in spite of the hectic action around... More

Was recommended by a friend and it was nice place. Very busy and a bit noisy but with good food. Everyone was surprised to get a second serving.

If you like big portions, meat and traditional service - you can't go wrong here! The deer was the best I had ever eaten, and service was first class. Tables downstairs are better than on the balcony ( very warm in winter) just don't sit too close to the cooking fire! Good wine list and tasty desserts. Best in Zermatt... More

I only had the Walliser-Teller (air dried meat and cheese) but it was most exquisite and came in a very generous portion. I was told that some of the meat came from the proprietor's own animals. Very friendly place.
