My husband and I had dinner here while staying in the hotel. It was great. He had their lamb steak and I had the cheese fondue. Lamb is their speciality and he had never had lamb steak. We both thoroughly enjoyed our dinners and the restaurant was very authentic Swiss and very cozy. The service was good even though the... More

Very good dinner to have in the off season. If you are a fan of lamb meat this is a great place to be in Zermatt. I love the traditional interior and rustic design but I wish the service would have been a little more attentive but I would definitely go back there.

We came to this restaurant and also the related Restaurant Julen upstairs (which we have reviewed separately). I loved the traditional and rustic interiors and furnishings. The service was overall very good and responsive despite the restaurant being very busy. We had a few different servers attending to us – they were very helpful when we were choosing what to... More

We were here yesterday evening 30.10.2014 and left with a very bad taste in the mouth. Despite the fact it is a great location with traditional swiss interior and cosy atmosphere, good food offering and nice fondue (although not the best we had in switzerland but still nice) we had quite a negative experience....and were certainly not the only ones....

Had a great dinner in the off season. Very little was open but after seeing all the adorable lambs grazing on the hillsides I was temped for lamb chops. We shared cops and a lamb burger which were both perfect and a crisp wine. Service was relaxed and we enjoyed our evening. Would highly recommend in any season

If you are anything but a quiet couple, this not the restaurant that emits the wonderful attributes of Zermatt. After arriving 7 minutes late for our reservation, we were greeted with a quite rude "Oh.... you are here". We were a group ladies, and yes we can be a little talkative, but the multiple requests by the staff for us... More

We were recommended by our hotel and from the glowing reviews, decided to check this place out. Food was pretty nice. Lamb steaks were very nice, done very well & tender. The lamb stew was passable only, not as tender as I thought it should be. The raclette was nice and as all raclettes should taste. We were there for... More

Dear Jolene We are terribly sorry to hear that you have felt unwelcome in our restaurant. You are absolutely right, that also in a busy night, we should provide the same standard of service as usually and there is no excuse for the circumstances that you experienced in our restaurant. We do notice that you were happy with the food... More

The restaurant is located at the basement of Romantik Hotel Julien which is located on the other side of the river. It is about 15 minute walk from the train station. The restaurant is famous for its lamb dishes, however, there are also other choices if you are not a lamb lover. We started with the racelette which is a... More

My wife and I went for dinner and shared a rack of lamb dish (the waiter told us that it would be enough) and he was right, but be warned, if you are hungry this is a very tasty dish and can be finished by a hungry person The hotel is under the Julien hotel in a cellar, and the... More

This beautifully lit and furnished cellar of the Hotel Julen has become one of the most fancied restaurants in Zermatt, and deservedly so. The owner is always on hand to welcome guests before and during the meal, service is prompt and friendly, and each dish is prepared with imagination and visual verve.
