The sizzling “holzfeuer” is the centrepiece of Le Gitan, creating an immediate warm and welcoming atmosphere at the forefront of the restaurant. You can wet your appetite by watching all the action from your table; our chef prepares all our grills over the wood fire. Specialities include lamb, prawns, beef and spit-roasted chicken tarragon.

My boyfriend and I are both lovers of steak and this place did not disappoint us. We were welcomed by the lovely staff and seen to the bar as our table wasn't ready. We got drinks right away and then were seated after a few minutes. The salmon starter was delicious and we both had the steak fillet. Best restaurant... More

We were met by a nice and very serviceminded hostess. Even though the restaurant was full and we had no reservation, she easily slided us on to a comfort seat in a corner at the bar desk. The Gitan skewer was perfect and the creamed potatoes as well. The local Merlot was good, however we have experienced local Pinot Noir... More

We come here every time we visit Zermatt and have never been disappointed in 20 years! We have chosen lam filet and beef skewer probably marinated the Gitan special I would guess. The meat was served with gratin, haricots and carrots. Everything was excellent, the skewer was spicy as I love it. We had an excellent bottle of Shiraz from... More

This restaurant is a nice Swiss traditional place where they cook on the fireplace. The meat is very well done and the atmosphere is family like. They like to serve you so quick that you have the idea there is a second seating but that is not the case, they could have people in for a much longer time when... More

We mistakenly came to this restaurant on the wrong night but they still accommodated us. We had outstanding grilled meat skewers - absolutely delicious with a nice sauce and their potato gratin was the best we had on our weeklong trip to Switzerland. Restaurant is nicely located on the Main Street in Zermatt. Service was also exceptional. The waiter knew... More

This is a restaurant that ticks so many boxes. It is small and very cosy downstairs affair with a very good ambience that includes some rather racy photos of semi-clad ladies on the walls! Four of us ate there for the first time and we were bowled over. My friends who are locals rate this as their new favourite. They... More

We discovered this restaurant on our first night in Zermatt. We tried their champagne fondue, What a good choice! Super fluffy, probably the best fondue so far. Not to miss Their plate of dried meats that are produced locally, good service, good wine choices.

My wife and I ate at a lot of great restaurants during our Week stay in Zermatt and this was one of the best. The atmosphere is very cool, romantically lit, light music and an open fire grill where you can see them cook. The atmosphere is probably the best in Zermatt, especially if you are looking for a romantic... More

I have been to Zermatt several times, and always come back to Le Gitan. The village is full of fantastic restaurants, but this might just be my favourite. Great atmosphere, nice personell and amazing food. Have the filet of lamb!
