The best lamb rack ever. Cooked perfect, great sauce to enhance the dish on to a whole new level. Service is good, nice beer. A must go place in Zermatt. 체르마트 식당 중에서 꼭 가봐야하는 곳!

Simply the best lamb chops ever!!! A must visit in Zermatt! We had a lamb chops that recommended by the staff and another braised lamb. Both amazingly tender and tasty without the lamb kind of smell at all!!!! Located in a hotel's LG floor. Cosy little restaurant with excellent lamb dishes!!! Grilled lamb dishes are all highly recommended!

This is the second time in 3 years my wife and I are visiting this restaurant in Zermatt. Their lamb dishes are just outstanding. We heard about the restaurant when we visited Zermatt back in 2011. At that time, we went there and had a fantastic culinary experience eating their lamb dishes. So when we went back to Zermatt now... More

Food and atmosphere was amazing. We ordered the cream soup, which I liked but my spouse didn't care for. But then.. Our main course came, I had lamb chops in wine reduction; my partner had lamb stew with tomato Spätzle. OMG. We live in Zürich and by far this was best Swiss food we've had. Important note: we booked and... More

First tip: make a reservation, or you will be disappointed. This typical Swiss style restaurant is decorated as a sheep stable. The main food accent is, not surprisingly, lamb. We had a fantastic lamb carpaccio, and then a very good lamb burger. Food is grilled by a cook in an open kitchen. Dessert choices are more traditional: excellent crème brulé... More

My wife and me enjoyed a great dinner in this cosy restaurant. Service was friendly and efficient. The lamb specialities we really delicious. It was the first time in my life that I tried lamb legs.

Have been coming to the Schäferstube once a year for the past 5 years ... and it just never gets old. The best food and atmosphere, tucked away nicely off the beaten track. Unpretentious and awesome food. I'll be back next year.

We visited this restaurant even though we hadn't made a reservation. The hostess managed to squeeze us in. The food was delicious, a lot of lamb on the menu, and judging by the number of guests, very popular. I think it was the owner who came round and personally greeted all guests - a nice touch. Menu very reasonable, much... More

We arrived with a reservation but a mistake had been made and our rep hadn't changed the date. The efficient hostess sorted us out with the last available table. 3 adults and 2 kids. Kids had lovely schnitzel and all the adults have varieties of the speciality - chargrilled lamb. It is delicious. Very efficient good service and faultless food.... More
