The bar is hot and cramped - so not really sure what the appeal is, but this place is usually always busy for après ski drinks and has a good dj on most evenings. Great meeting point.

Having walked past the Yacht Club restaurant every day on our walk from hotel to ski hire shop we thought we would give it a try. We were not disappointed! A very interesting menu with a particularly varied burger selection (we had the Chinese Peking Duck burger and the Indonesian Chicken satay burger). On talking to our waitress we found... More

Good place to drop by and have a few beers or cocktails but reasonable bar food available in friendly atmosphere. Good service. Suspect that this is a place that many in this part of Zermatt would frequent - certainly popular with local set

We had pre dinner drinks in the upstairs bar which were promptly delivered. Downstairs the restaurant is done up in a nautical theme and looked very nice. The menu is different with specialty burgers and fajitas amongst the fare. I had the Argentina fajita which was delicious. The prices were ok by Zermatt standards.

We popped in by chance and were very pleasantly surprised. Really friendly and professional staff. Great Bellini 's and cocktails! My husband had the Fajita and I had the Jumbo Prawns, both full of flavour and cooked to perfection. Great value for money in Zermatt!

A nice restaurant but rather expensive. Food portions small, ordered the hamburger, was nice but anything extra with it soon bumped up the price to regular Zermatt prices

Dear Lisa, Thanks for taking the time to review the Snowboat. We understand that Switzerland is expensive and Zermatt is no different. This is due to many factors but at the Snowboat we aim to give value for your money. Our beef is of top quality and there is 200grams in each burger. We hope that next time you come... More

I returned to Snowboat again following my visit last year. The service and food was outstanding as it was when we visited before. Though it was "low season" the bar was busy with locals who were clearly regulars. The staff were wonderful and the atmosphere friendly. We had bar food as the main restaurant downstairs is only open in the... More

We visited the Snowboat during our one-day stay in Zermatt in mid-August. We were tired from our day of traveling, we weren't in the mood for a big dinner, and we basically stumbled on the Snowboat. A quick check of online reviews indicated it had good food, so we stopped. The host and chef were both very friendly, and gave... More

This place just gets better, friendly staff who know everything you need to know about Zermatt. We had the chicken wings with roast potatoes, delicious. Lots of value for money desserts and quick snacks. The fine dining restaurant isn't open in the summer but the chefs menu in the winter season is a real winner, lots of variety even though... More
