Very nice waiter and great food! We tried cheese burger and chicken burger. They both good. We also tried bobble salad. It was tasty (although a little bit expensive).

We ate here for lunch and really enjoyed it. Service was quick and reasonably priced. We needed to know gluten free options and the staff were really caring and careful to find out what was suitable. Burgers were delicious for the non-gluten free :)

We have been in Switzerland almost a week and the brown cow provided us with the best meal since we arrived. We started off in Geneva then Interlaken and now find ourselves in Zermatt, the best burger I have tasted in a very long time so fresh and tasty. The prices were very reasonable also, I would recommend this establishment... More

Value for money - yes. Service with a smile - yes. Authentic Taste - absolutely. Would I eat here again - most certainly. Well where do I start. It was a long day up at the mountain and I was in search of a cold one. Stumbled across the BCP and I was happily surprised with the find. Great ambience.... More

Zermatt is expensive. This place is not, at least by comparison. I had the veggie burger and a cider, and my husband had the Swiss burger. Both were excellent. The bread they use for buns is really nice. The french fries were good. Large servings were nice after a long day of hiking! We paid about 40 CHF for the... More

This was our last day in Zermatt. We stopped in to grab a bite to eat before catching the train. Typical English type pub. It was busy, so we sat at the bar. The four us had burgers with fries. They were really good. Not your typical fast food burger. Staff was friendly.
