Having spent a week with 8 children, we decided on an 'adults only' evening and Restaurant Spycher was an excellent choice. The ambiance is wonderful, the restaurant tiny and the food delicious.

Unfortunately did not have a great experience. Went based on recommendations from this site and made a reservation. They were rude to us from the start to end, asking us to move tables when we weren't there to order a full meal (even though my reservation was done by email ans explained what we were wanting, as it was our...

Dear Christine, as you can see in the other recommendations this is not the standard of our restaurant You were not moved tables because you were not having a full meal, but because you were too early and just sat at any table while we prepared your table for the fondue.

We booked this place a day in advance and were pleasantly surprised to arrive in a magical place. The location is chalet style and very cute and the staff was very helpful and attentive. Food was exquisite. We tried their flambe meat: beef and deer and it was the best we had in a while! I highly recommend this place... More

spycher was my favorite restaurant during my holidays in Zermatt. Very nice chalet, and amazing food. Many different ways to cook flambé meat, great selection of food. Chateaubriand was amazing. Desserts were really good specially the chocolate fondue. Can't miss the place

We had a family dinner there and we all were very happy with our meals that we had chosen. I must add though, that the welcome when coming in, could have been a bit more friendly.

We ate here as part of our hotel deal at the Aristella and I am very glad we did. The laminated menu was confusing, the place did not look that promising, but the food was excellent.

This is a cosy, family-run restaurant that serves traditional Swiss food with a French accent. They specialise in game, grilled and flambeed dishes. We had venison and grilled duck breast and the meat was nicely prepared, tender and tasty. Be sure to check out the daily specials (we had to specifically ask for the list), because you'll find more affordable... More
