Unforgettable host

This restaurant is memorable - it is the proof that a dinner is not only about the cooking - it is about the whole experience.

Writing this as coming to the end of an exceptional meal. Chose this restaurant following trip advisor reviews and not disappointed. We went for the set 4 course (which turned out to be 5) Easter menu and have to say could not fault anything about the food, service or ambience. This is our first dinner in Zermatt and now rather...

First: always make reservation. Second: eat lamb. Third: ask them they put tartar of lamb back on the menu. It is a place one of is kind. Maybe they have to think a bit over some dishes for children but even now that little problem they always can solve. Fantastic food, great atmosphere and super friendly, not traditional restaurant.

If you want to have extremely rude and aggressive waiters that won't take orders past 8.30pm, for average food, this is the place. Rather dated place with dated music and owner singing his own kitsch songs from the 80's, every night! The food is average at best. I arrived at 9.15 pm and wanted to order food, the waiter (...

We were sent to Chez Heini by friends and after having heard quite a lot of recommendations we thought to give it a shot... and really could have kicked ourselves for taking 3 years to try this restaurant. The service is amazing, Matthias takes care of you with a fine sense of detail and an amazing wine counsel. We had... More

We booked a table due to other reviews, and the fast that we rented an apartment close by. We were not disapointed! We had the best meal on our stay here. The restaurants specials are lamb, and it was very good, and the portions were large.

Perfect evening! Great food, wine and atmosphere. Presentation of The soup in a high heel show was just stunning. Loved The performance at The end of our diner. You Will never get The Matterhorn song out of your mind.

We ate a Chez Heini on Sat. February 13. We went there based on the reviews we had read. We did not have a reservation, so we decided to just walk over and see if they had any tables. When we walked in the place was packed- everyone was smiling and having a great time. We waited a few minutes,... More

Where to start ? So much to say but I will summerize in three main points: - Food: the food is very tasty, I have never tasted such grilled lamb. It's beyond description. My favourite was the rack of lamb with the fillet served after. It just melts in your mouth. - Staff: you will be served by the most... More
