Best Burger... "The Aztec"

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... read more

This bar offers a very nice atmosphere, a fireplace and huge windows. Staff is friendly and quick. I would get diner in the bar rather than in the Restaurant in the Basement. We go again as many locals do too.

we were a group of 9 and had to wait almost 45 minutes for our food, which didn't really make sense. When the hamburgers did arrive, they were excellent. Our best hamburger experience in Zermatt.

We just wanted an early meal not too far from our hotel. From the outside you would hardly know it was there but entered through the bar where a nice young man showed us to the restaurant downstairs. The decor and atmosphere was beautiful. We were greeted by a delightful yoing lady who looked after us for the evening. Our... More

Having read many glowing reviews this was hugely disappointing. Perched on bar stools we waited over an hour for main courses including a small chicken salad (supposedly main course size) with hardly any chicken and just lettuce. The cocktails are more expensive than in most of the resort's hotels. Above all there was one waitress/manager for the whole restaurant who... More

Dear Shauna, the Argentina fajitas are my favorite too! The burgers are almost famous.. Perhaps try the grilled fish or lamb next time you visit. Looking forward to seeing you. More

My hisband and I both had the whole grilled fish which had delicous vegetable accompliments and salad with an excellent dressing.Which seems unusual for most medium priced restaurants in Zermatt.There were salsa, pesto and a paprika mayonaise to accompany the fish.

From the outside, it looks more like a bar, but when you go downstairs, it's a lovely surprise, with a small intimate restaurant, that offers good quality food at reasonable prices. The staff were attentive and friendly, and the ambience is truly lovely. We enjoyed it so much, that we went back twice.

Dear Sue, thanks for taking the time to post this review. The Snowboat has the best for both worlds. A small lively bar upstairs and an intimate restaurant with a lovely ambience downstairs. Thanks for revisiting during your stay and I'm so happy that you enjoyed it so much. Hope to be able to welcome you again soon. More
