The restaurant is downstairs in the basement level of a small, boutique hotel and had been highly recommended. On arrival we were offered our choice of tables so we picked a cozy one in the corner of this already cozy restaurant. Our waitress, Tanya, was very pleasant and helpful and recommended a Swiss Syrah that was terrific. I had a... More

Zermatt is all round expensive, this restaurant is no exception, however if you're going to spend the money on a fondue try this place. Very respectable fondue and a great selection of local wines.

We spent 4 nights in Zermatt and after having dinner at Restaurant Schaeferstube, we knew we needed to go back for another dinner...which we did! All the reviews rave about the lamb and it is amazing - probably the most tender and flavorful pieces of meat we have ever eaten. But the menu has many options - my son loved... More

This was the 1st time for us in a traditional Swiss restaurant and so we left ourselves to the advice of the service staff, Lisa in particular. And that was the best decision! The lamb was the best ever! And the Swiss style of serving it in 2 courses was great!! A rally pleasing and satisfying experience...

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

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
