This may be the best lamb I have ever been served...and the au gratin potatoes are in a league by themselves. Dani Danielle is the chef, the entertainer and the heartbeat of this Zermatt institution. Get to know him and you will remember your meal and Zermatt forever.

We had a family trip (9 Adults) to Zermatt over Christmas and New Year with Chez Heini our last night dinner! It was undoubtedly a highlight of our holiday. The service was superb (must say we have been there before and the service is always great) - the food was simply excellent, lamb served in different ways was the best... More

We had a wonderful time here with our friends, and lamb was probably one of the best we have ever tasted...Atmosphere was lovely also.

Visited Chez Heini on 29 December and had a lovely night with 8 other friends. The main criteria for this restaurant is its lamb, if you don't like lamb go somewhere else, but if you like it, it's amazing!! Cooked over the open fire its juicy and tender. Only criticism is everyone arrives nearly at once and the service was... More

First impression is quite startling. Menu's are quirky and slightly difficult to manage but food and atmosphere are very good. Staff are friendly and helpful. Good place to have a family evening meal, probably a tad busy for romantic meals.

Good quirky design restaurant. Food is good and ambiance is rather odd but nice and interesting. Service is average to good but could be better (over stretched waiters whi are trying their best but cannot cope sometimes). Worth a visit!

Had great expectations of the restaurant. Starter of fois gras was exceptional - the best I have eaten. Main course(s) were good. Service was great and decor/atmosphere unusual and buzzing. The toilets (ladies) were not clean when I used them. To be fair to the management team this was dealt with immediately Perhaps my expectations exceeded my experience. It's an... More

Dan Daniel, Matthias and team do an excellent job delivering a superb dining experience on all levels, and this season is no different. From the moment you walk in, you are greeted by the stunning and unique ambiance of the Zermatt decor, combined with a bit of Hollywood glamour as a nod to Dan Daniel - the performer. The warm...

Great soup with ginger in, the lamb from heini's family is fine, tender and sharply rose. Huge portions along with great quality, and the whole team, waiter & heini, makes you feeling really welcome. A successful mix between family, professional and quality of meals. Book there
