Sparky is a lovely guy who even after 30 years still invests himself fully in his business. The food is OK and I guess he's not trying to do anything particularly special. He was extremely accommodating of our kids and very friendly.

We tasted the Thai dish as well as the Indian one. Both were very good! Service is really quick and the owner very friendly. I would definitely recommend this redtaurant!

We have been to Zermatt many times and we always go to Sparky's. This trip 3 times in one week. Sparky (the owner, server, bar tender, cook . . .) is very friendly and welcoming.

Simple place with a lovely host in the owner and tasty food. We went 4 of us, all ordering different dishes and we were all very happy with our dish. Menu is a bit small but offer tastes from locally inspired dishes to typical British stuff like currys. If your looking for something different from the normal stuff in Zermatt... More

Zermatt's not a cheap place to eat - but at Sparky's (the nickname of the friendly English owner) its affordable and very high quality. Even if money is no object, at least one meal at Sparky's is well worth it

Found this restaurant through TripAdvisor and so thankful. We were looking for a place that wasn't fine dining and non-Swiss food (I like Swiss food and live in Switzerland but wanted a different food this night) and we found it at Sparky's. We got a last minute reservation. Place is small so definitely need to reserve. It feels like a... More
