This is a quaint little restaurant and may fool you from the outside. Once inside, and you'd better make reservations, the food is so good it's hard to explain. The presentation is excellent but the food itself is exquisitely tasty. This restaurant can hold its own against any other. Relaxed atmosphere with discriminating taste- truly a delight. You'll definitely want... More

Recommended by a local top hotelier, whom I have the pleasure to be friends with, when asking him, we want to have an authentic Swiss specialty meal in a nice setting, not just standard but special. He immediately recommended Schaeferstube and was lucky enough to get us a table for 6 persons on Saturday evening. We enjoyed every bite, great... More

J and I visited this restaurant once last week, last year we went twice. We had the lamb curry (again!) and it is absolutely delicious. Fresh ingredients, aromatic - fantastic. The only thing wrong was there wasn't enough. So we as asked and were given extras! The dessert wasn't anything special but it's a lovely bistro-type restaurant and I'd highly... More

The fondue and lamb are excellent. Only complaint is how warm it is inside in summer time, it would be perfect for a winters meal. We still loved it though!

Schaeferstube is the traditional restaurant out of the Julen Restaurants, and probably the most popular. The food was fantastic and the decor and mood of the restaurant are wonderful. You really get the Zermatt experience upon arriving to this restaurant! Prices are aligned with most other restaurants in Zermatt, relatively pricey for us Australians but normal for Zermatt. The servings... More

Had dinner at the Schäfterstube. It's quite a mountain place to eat. Lots of wood, stuffed sheep everywhere and a fireplace. They do a lot of lamb from the fireplace - I heard guests raving about it. I had some raclette and beef which was absolutely great. The raclette I very much recommend - it's absolutely creamy. The only thing... More

Our first night in Zermatt took us to this well renowned lamb restaurant. Beautifully quaint restaurant close to town centre. The only downside was the price...we paid 50 francs for a loin of lamb and got 2 servings each...both of which had medallions on them and the same garlic potatoes. This surprised us as we didn't order medallions and even... More
