Great food in a relaxed atmosphere!

We went to Sparky's two nights ago and had an excellent meal. Both the Thai curry and the Special Korma curry can be thoroughly recommended. The owner was so welcoming and the atmosphere made for a great evening out.

Service, conversation, pride, care, great atmosphere and above all great value food. If only we had found Sparky's at the start of our trip we would have avoided the tourist trap restaurants. Thanks Sparky

The proprietor is really friendly and attentive. He turned me on to one of my now favorite beers: Eichhof Hubertus, Swiss.

You HAVE to go to Sparky's while in Zermatt!!! We visited 3 times while vacationing (twice for après and once for dinner) the owner and head chef (Mark and Raymond) are truly the most welcoming duo I've ever met in any restaurant and the food is INCREDIBLE!! Get the Lamb Rogan Josh (a type of lamb curry) you won't be... More

We went to Sparky's a few times on our trip to Zermatt and each time we really appreciated the warm welcome and friendly atmosphere. Sparky is the best of hosts and couldn't be more welcoming, whether you're just popping in for a drink or having a meal. The food is great, I had a delicious Thai chicken curry while my... More

Sparky's is a small cozy apres-ski / dinner spot that is the best kept secret in Zermatt. I almost hate to write this review for fear of it becoming trendy, but such a great place deserves mention. The owner and innkeeper is always there to greet guests and to make everyone feel at home. The menu offers both munchies and... More

We went to the restaurant about 7 pm before the rush starting at 7.30 pm. The restaurant was small and cosy. There was only one gentleman looking after guests on the floor supported by three staff in the kitchen. He was very friendly and helpful. The ambience was good and casual. The menu was simple. We ordered some curry dishes... More

Mark - or Sparky, as he is known - is a very nice guy who runs a wonderful, cozy bar and restaurant and makes everyone feel right at home. When we first visited, it was full, but Sparky invited us to grab a drink at the bar across the street (Bar 55) and then told us he would come over... More

Welcoming host, great food, warm and cozy -never anything to complain about at Sparky's! We both had Thai food which great and my vegetarian option was outstanding. We always visit this restaurant with very reasonable prices whenever we are in Zermatt.
