Went on review scores and a recommendation from a friend and we were not disappointed.food was good and portions were large although the Thai green curry was excessively spicy we thought.the price,although high,was reasonable for Zermatt and the host was a pleasure to deal with as was his dog:-)

Sparky's, which is also bar, is a cosy restaurant, located pretty close to Matterhorn Glacier Express. My boyfriend and I spent a pleasant evening with delicious food: we had chicken wings as starter that we shared, then he ate a very well cooked crispy chicken and I had a really particular steak and ale pie, both served with veggies and...

Second time visiting here, wasnt disappointed. The food is great and the service friendly. The goat cheese salad is recommendeable and so is the steak pie. The only point of critique was the saltiness of the food, which was way too much. Not only for the foods mentioned above, but also for the Indian dishes. Otherwise all good.

Really good curries--great place to go apres ski. Great vibe, super friendly staff. Wife had green thai curry, I had madras curry. Both were excellent. Kids had breaded chicken which was also great.

Always a friendly welcome from the manager who makes time to say hello. Great tasting dishes, small but decent choice of dishes, and excellent value. A nice place to go in Zermatt, can get crowded in season. Would always go back there.

Sparky's might not look like much from the outside but the food and service is very good. The owner is very friendly and attentive. The entree menu is a bit limited but we prefer quality over quantity. Despite being connected to a hostel, it has a restaurant look and feel - after all - this is Zermatt. Photos of past... More

Always a friendly welcome from the manager who makes time to say hello. Small but perfectly formed menu (large portions!), great tasting and excellent value. Quite a find in expensive Zermatt.

Glad to have had dinner at Sparky's one evening in Zermatt - we had curry so it was nice to have something different (ie. without cheese) and a meal that didn't cost the earth. Small friendly place with a nice causal and relaxed atmosphere. Only thing I would say is that instead of playing extreme sports on the TV, just... More
