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.

Our waiter was the only waiter for at least 7 tables and with her best efforts was simply too busy to have time for quality service. Asking for recommendations seemed to be a troublesome burden and we were inclined to ask for a few more minutes to decide on our own. She didn't come back, instead we had to get... More

We had our first raclette here, and really enjoyed it. And then the lamb ragout - comforting, flavorful, tender, I'm running out of adjectives for how good it was! Service was friendly and professional. The owner came around to every table to make sure all was well. Some of the menu items at this restaurant were also on the menu... More

It's not our first visit to this restaurant we have been going there for many years, over all this time we have never been disappointed, the service is friendly and efficient, the meat comes from local suppliers and is always cooked perfectly, nothing is too much trouble here just ask and they do their best to make it happen.

Service was very good and the lamb was good, but I wouldn't classify it as great. Portions were sizable.
