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

Just what I was after, tasty flavours, spices, and not to pricey. Friendly atmosphere, and great staff. Sparky himself is a credit to Zermatt, with some amazing knowledge of all goings on in town, and some outstanding ski films, and extreme sports on the tv. It was just the buzz we were looking for to keep up is the mood... More

Great food, efficient yet friendly and charming host. Quick service, great banter with the regulars and visitors. Feel equally at home sitting at the bar for beers and/or food or, taking a table. Exceptional value in a very expensive resort. Children clearly welcome.

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.
