We stayed up the road from this restaurant and walked past every day - we decided we had to go just for the name. It was an entertaining evening, the food was fabulous, the staff obviously care about what they do and the experience you have.

There are many nice Gault Millau rated restaurants in Zermatt which serve good food and deserve their rating, but this is most definitely not one of them. The service and wine list are the only positive points. The food we were served was shockingly bad. The starter, profiteroles filled with sheep cream cheese looked like something a child had prepared... More

We had dinner at Chez Vrony during our recent stay in Zermatt. The restaurant has a very interesting atmosphere. They braai (bbq) the meat on an open fire which makes the smell inside fabulous! Service is good, food is also great and it is followed by a show by Heini himself! Very entertaining!

first up, this restaurant has a colourful reputation, like its owner. Could have been decorated by Liberace himse, silver marbles scattered on tables ! Very glittery table setting. Once you get over that, you will be surprised how good the food is. they have wonderful lamb dishes cooked in more ways than you imagine possible. It was a highly entertaining... More

We decided to book this place after reading the reviews in tripadvisor and we were not disappointed at all. The restaurant has an interesting ambiance with many decorations. The manager of the restaurant is very friendly and he personally came and asked many times if our food was cooked well. And the best part is the food. We heard their... More

Wow what a wonderful atmosphere, especially if you are lucky enough to get the table by the fireplace like we did, with all the cooking and carving of the meat done in front of you on the open flames. Nothing is too much here, the staff are fantastic and extremely welcoming and the food is spectacular and a lot of... More

Very good food... the lamb was fabulous! I had hoped the service would be a little quicker so I could skip the post-meal entertainment, but alas, I suffered through it (it really wasn't that bad, just a little corny). I was seated fairly close to the fireplace so was toasty but not uncomfortable as another reviewer noted.

My husband and enjoyed dinner "Chez Heini". We stayed at "Cervo" so it was a ride down the mountain elevator and a five minute walk so very convenient. It's quaint and eccentric. I don't want to say too much because I would give away some of the elements of surprise. The menu card is presented in a very interesting way... More
