Good tasty food

Really enjoyed the food which is a bit different for a ski resort. Plenty of it too! The idea of a boat in the middle of Zermatt is a bit random however.

We were staying nearby & didn't want another Swiss formal meal - snowboat hit the mark - lovely salads & entree choices & good wine list (why is wine so expensive all over Swise when you make so much of your own wine?). Very friendly service in an absolutely stunning village. The only suggestion I would have is the outside... More

When in Zermatt I always head straight to the Snowboat. It is a fantastic place with brilliant cocktails, excellent service and great food! The staff are really friendly and helpful. The roof bar is fantastic for a spot of sunbathing and watching the world go by. Definitely worth visiting!!!

My short answer is yes, but I suppose I would have to visit every restaurant in Switzerland to confirm this. And as the Swiss Franc is pretty strong, I'm not sure I could afford to do this! I will say this. I came during the summer months as a solo traveler and found all the servers, bartenders, and cooks to... More

I have been here twice: one in the restaurant downstairs, to have one of their hamburger ( very good !!!) & the second time in the bar upstairs. Definitely, the atmosphere in the bar is far better, relaxed and fun, probably because of the great cocktails and the friendly barman… However, I loved it and will definitely be back there... More

Located along a main street this restaurant has a great, cosy interior. We had a couple Apps and some beers, the wings and bitterballen, both were good as well as the service on a slow day at the end of ski season. I would most definitely come back here for food drinks and good times.

Enjoyed the fajitas here, great recommendation. The chicken satay skewers were also a nice starter. Service is good, only little disappointment was that it doesn't look that they clean the place very well (bit dusty)

Lively apres ski bar with a patio. The restaurant is a lovely room with booths, tables and a bar downstairs. Very nice environment with a large fish tank and a roaring fireplace as well. The service was friendly and good. The meal was amazing. The best burger that I have had in a long time. Highly recommend the “Aztec” Burger…... More

Trying to be trendy and differnet from traditional but the food is not that well executed and takes far too long to arrive.
