just right for me and the wife

Having had a poor start to our eating out in Zermatt, having read the reviews on Tripadvisor decided to give Sparkys a try. The food was ideal for my wife and I and the service from Sparky was pleasant. The price was reasonable by Zermatt standards but I left having eaten a meal that I enjoyed and... read more

We visited recently after reading reviews and wanting to try some Indian food. Booking was made and ran into the owner on our way in (he was delivering a meal across the road). Made us feel very welcome and took orders promptly. We went for the Chicken Madras and Lamb Roganjosh. Both dishes tasted fine but were not like the... More

I have recently returned from a short break in Zermatt. Sparky's opened for the summer season on our first day and we ate there twice. The curries and chocolate brownies are as good as ever and Sparky is a great host, always willing to find time to talk to new visitors. He caters for all ages and children are welcome.

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!
