Good food at good prices for Zermatt

We had a nice meal at Sparky's , the restaurant isn't central but is worth a visit. Sparky is an English gent who makes you feel very welcome and at ease. The service was very good and so was the food washed down with a nice bottle of local wine.

Enjoyed a well priced meal here. Nice relaxed feeling and didn't feel uncomfortable as a single traveller. Enjoyed the food and the atmosphere the curry was great. Dog and family and traveller friendly.

My wife and I stumbled into Sparky's on our first night in Zermatt after being turned away from 4 places for not having reservations. Mark, the owner, made us welcome immediately. Great pub atmosphere with outgoing Americans, Irish, and Brits. Lots of Laughs.

Have been coming here for years and Mark is always very welcoming. His food is always very good, but we did not go back for a second meal this year as we felt he was overpricing his meals. A shame as we do enjoy the atmosphere, although the music can sometimes be a bit too loud for us older folk!

This is above a youth hostel, and the English (?) guy who runs it is welcoming, fun and very helpful. The menu is not vast, about 4 different curries and nacho plates on the day we were there, delicious. The clientele seems to be a mix of holidaymakers in the know, and locals employed in the skiing business. All very... More
