We enjoyed a lovely dinner for four at Le Gitan as recommended by Michelle at Romantica. We'd been on the mountain hiking all day so the hearty fare from the grille was welcome. Nice wine selection and good service. The open fire made the room warm and added ambience. A great choice among a lot of competing options.

Based on the recommendation of our hotel my wife and i recently enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Le Gitan. We really appreciated the fact that they accommodated our request to move tables to a quieter section, complete with candlelight, even though we did not have reservations. The food was outstanding and service good. While they initially made a mistake with... More

Wonderful dining experience for my wife and I. Food, wonderful --- of course it was fondue. Staff friendly and patient offering advice on the type of fondue we would enjoy. Relaxed, no rush or push to get us in and out. Atmosphere relaxed, location was perfect, after diner an easy stroll thru the village. Le gitan is a must.

A small and cozy restaurant with an open fire pit area where the grilling is done and fun to watch. Our waiter recommended a Swiss Syrah at $80 which in fact was one of the least expensive wines on the menu and was quite good. My wife ordered the lamb cutlets while I ordered a Wiener Schnitzel. The waiter pushed... More

Our family of 5 went to Le Gitan Grill for our last dinner in Zermatt on the recommendation of our hotel. This was one of our favorite meals. We sat near the grill and we really enjoyed watching the preparation of the food. The waitstaff was very accommodating - offering seconds on side dishes. The lamb was fabulous, cooked perfectly,...

The meat on the grill is outstanding. Specifically the brochette or the lamb. Also very difficult not to take seconds of their specialty potatoes. Very good selection of wines. Better suited for adults. Dimmed lighting. Excellent service.

We shared the lamb filets which were amazing flavorful and tender. The potatoes gratin was delicious and I appreciated the second helping. However, the 5 pieces of vegetables left a lot to be desired. This was a recommendation to celebrate our anniversary. The atmosphere was very quaint and cozy, the food delicious, but like Zermatt- very very expensive and the... More

My wife and I dined here whilst in Zermatt. I had fillet steak with potato gratin which was heavenly. I have never tasted gratin as nice as this. My wife had a fondue which had a beautiful flavour. More subtle than the french fondue which i find can be a little strong. Make sure you have a bottle of the... More

average cold meat starters, average steak tartar (served without toast), average grilled meat, average service... but prices much over what it should be, as usual in zermatt. no special reason to go again, no special reason to avoid this place.
