Warm and elegant ambiance, excellent food and service

A couple with two children, we walked in about 7 pm and were lucky enough to be offered a table in the cellar grill. The ambiance is wonderful, retaining an old Zermatt charm. Service was friendly and efficient. The fresh local food and wine were excellent. My local sliced grilled lambs tongue was... read more

Great little restaurant located in a basement. Lovely rustic ambiance. Service was both swift and kind. Very extensive wine list. Wonderful desserts. But the food...I met two friends there and we all had different lamb dinners and all three of us agree it was the best lamb we've ever had. Tender, tasteful and cooked to perfection. I had the lamb... More

Everything about this dinner was enjoyable. The rustic ambiance, the open kitchen, the welcome by the owner Paul, and especially the food were all great. Four of us dined together. For appetizers, my wife and I shared the raclette, which was superb. The other couple had a fresh mixed salad and the special appetizer of the night. After the waitress... More

The place to be if you want to eat local and very good, in a not less typical and local framework! Specialists in raclette and lamb, they serve also home-made dried season beef which is awesome. Professional welcome, traditional clothes & decoration. To be recommended.

The restaurant has a very cosy, rustic and welcoming ambience and offers a wide range of Wallis specialties and excellent wines. Their cheese fondue was the best I have ever had. The staff are extremely friendly and we were repeatedly asked by the owner/manager whether everything was OK. Certainly to be recommended.

I've been there 2 times. Everything was very good, the people, the meal and also the place itself. There is no word to describe how good is the lamb! Well done!

For many years we enjoy dinner at Schaferstube with our family. Friendly atmosphere, great traditional dishes including fondue, raclette and also very good lamb dishes. Children are always happy with the kids menu as well. On our way to Zermatt we are already talking about this place so that says it all!

This traditional chalet restaurant was the best we found in Zermatt. We ate at plenty of high end restaurants but in terms of traditional Swiss food, this place should not be missed. Try the lamb here as it is their specialty. The rack of lamb comes 2 ways and both were delicious. The service here was so nice, it was... More
