Very friendly and more casual than the fine dining in the hotel

This is a fun restaurant across the street from the hotel. Wonderful weiner snitzel and lots of menu choices.

Service was warm. The server really seemed to care whether we were enjoying our meal. Everything came to our table promptly and hot. Great experience.

This place runs their own farm and the selection of grills and lamb dishes is the best I've come across in Europe . Been to this place a couple of times. Nice cosy ambience down in the basement , outstanding food.... The lamb-cheese sausage, Indian style lamb rice, shrimps were all very good. In desserts, the white chocolate parfait !... More

Service is prompt, atmosphere is " Alpine", fondue is served with bread and potato. Deserts - chocolate mousse and toblerone parfee are outstanding The only negative point - we sit at basement floor and there is an open fireplace. That is why there was extremely hot and stuffily.

This restaurant is obviously in high demand as we had reservations for 7PM, and the place was already full but they had our table set aside and we were seated immediately. Server was excellent---fast, friendly and highly efficient. Wine list was extensive with something to fit everyone's taste. Wine is expensive in SW but a must when dining in the... More

The place was packed and you have to make reservation to be able to dine there. We had typical Swiss like Cheese Fondue and Lamb and they were all very good and tasteful.

All four of us very much enjoyed our meals - we focussed on the lamb although one diner did have a small tough piece of meat. The decor is interesting and the wine reasonably priced (for Switzerland). We found the service friendly and professional.

We came here after reading all the positive reviews on Tripadvisor. As the other reviewers have mentioned, recommendations are highly recommended, especially for weekends. We are very lucky to have made a reservation for this place. I ordered the grilled loin of lamb with potato gratin and vegetable variation. It comes in 2 servings - which means it may be... More

For foodies who are visiting Switzerland and want to experience real, traditional, upscale Swiss cuisine, this is the place to visit. From the unique atmosphere of miniature sheep figurines and vintage farming photos, you feel as though you have been transported to an old Swiss town. We had searched all of Switzerland for the best place to get fondue and... More

We enjoyed this place so much that we went back for a second night. The cheese fondue was to die for as was the chateau-briand, and the lamb. Excellent service, food and authentic Swiss atmosphere. We will go back for sure the next time we are in Zermatt..reservations highly recommended.
