My wife and I stayed in Zermatt for a week and dinner at Spycher was certainly one of the highlights. The food is 5 stars, I had the duck, my wife had the beef filet and both were PHENOMENAL, perfectly cooked and the sauces were delicious. The wine list is actually a book, with so much to choose from so... More

My husband and I went to Spycher for dinner last night and it was delightful. The food was super- we shared venison medallions , that were the best I've had, in a delicious preparation. Also a wine and cream soup (edelweiss soup) with lamb that was fantastic. The ambience was quaint and warm. The manager was attentive -'all in all... More

NYE dinner was excellent, 7 courses but none was too exagerated or heavy, great service, nice wine.The second time was good as well, the waiters were very professional and helped translate for us words on the menu that were unclear, the owner came to greet...

Entering this restaurant for the first time caused a bit of a surprise. After the high octane energy of the après ski bars a bit further on the road, we found ourselves in a very civilised environment. Polite and attentive staff guided us to our table and made sure the rest of the evening we were well catered for. This... More

I had two wonderful meals here. The first was a delicious breast of duck with gratin potatoes and root vegetables. There was a complimentary starter to the meal which was unexpected and beautifully presented. I enjoyed that first meal so much that I returned for my second and last night in Zermatt. This time I had the most delicious lamb... More

A little background first - my husband and I have been eating at the Spycher for about 40 years. We have always loved it but the last time we ate there, maybe 5 or more years ago, we were very disappointed. The service was off, the food not great. So we crossed it off our list of places to eat... More

we had a lovely dinner (opens at 5pm) and enjoyed the local fare and house wine. we can recommend the snails (superb), the coconut soup with prawns and the dear steak. we enjoyed the local house wines in rose and red selection - per glass. an affordable menu (compared to other fine dining in switzerland).

We found this restaurant just by chance. After checking out the menu and noticing that it had received a good rating from Trip Advisor we decided to make a reservation for later that evening. We both ordered the grilled entrecôte with, fries and vegetables, which was cooked beautifully. Delicious and tender. Service was excellent and friendly. Another night we dropped... More
