Must get the BURGER!!!

I was craving something hearty and savory and boy did I find it at the Brown Cow Pub. You must come here if you're in Zermatt and craving for a burger. The Zermatter with an egg is absolutely amazing. The meat is so tasty topped with a fresh golden yolk egg is phenomenal. The burger is paired with... read more

Wasn't there for long but scrupulously clean, quick service and the best tasting and well presented club sandwich I've ever had. Worth a visit!

The Brown Cow is a great place. I had a cheeseburger, my husband had a chicken sandwich. Both were excellent, as were the french fries and salad. The best part was our server, who was from either Australia or New Zealand, I can't remember. But he was very friendly and attentive - something we had not encountered in Switzerland. We... More

Very slow service! Food average. It took a very long time to get a check. Personnel were not very attentive. Seem more interested in bar.

I absolutely love this place. I have eaten here on 2 different trips and it is just as good as the first time. My favorite thing on the menu is the stinky burger! It has onions, garlic, cheese and mushrooms. YUM! I haven't found anything on the menu I don't like. The best seat in the house is the front... More

We had the the goulash soup, burger (can't remember the name; it's the one with local cheese and fermented vegetables) and some beer and everything came out well and good. Try the burger and you most likely won't be disappointed; it's not the best in the classic burger sense but the flavors are unique and memorable. Great music, cheap beer,... More

We went mid-afternoon and had a burger (fabulous) and a salad with chicken and bacon. Portions were generous and the price was so much more reasonable than anywhere else in town.

Nice spot for a very good meal and beer. Sandra and John were very good staff and ensured you had a good experience. Farmers chicken salad was a filling meal after a hard days walking.

We had burgers and sandwiches at this pub. Both really good and filling. Expect a BIG portion for the sandwich, but don't expect any traditional dishes. Overall it was the cheapest and best option in Zermatt, as most other places were at least twice the price.

The burgers are great, comes with fries & salad. Best of all, the price is very reasonable. The lady who served us was friendly & food was served without a long wait. Definitely a great place to dine while in Zermatt.
