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

Yes, you'll find here bar food but it is very well done. I had an excellent burger with perfect cooked meat and fresh ingredients that was presented very nicely. Service is attentive and friendly. And for those who complain about prices: you're in Switzerland and prices are here very decent for the country.

We ordered 3 entrees, chicken wings, pulled pork tacos and nachos with beers and wine. Everything was really good food wise, service was off a bit, they weren't exactly busy but we waited for an empty beer and wine glass for about 30 mins before giving up and going elsewhere. Good food though!

We had burgers which was the most expensive burger I have ever had. Even a bit of salad is extra 6Fr. The burgers are quite small and inspite ordering medium rare they were over done. The salad was very sour. The service was poor. When asked for a bill we were just ignored.

Ok, it's a burger. And it costs almost 20 CHF. But probably it's the best burger you will ate ever. Fresh ingredients, perfect meat, great rosti. Plus, great music and really nice people that take care of you from when you get in to when you leave. Great place troughout

We had enough of raclette and cheese fondue, so just wanted something very simple. We had walked pass the snowboat earlier during our stay and been through the menu. It was perfect for our purpose, we had chicken wings and chicken satay wings-it was an average normal pub meal, perfect for our purpose. If you are looking for fine dining... More

Veggie friendly, decent price for a good last day lunch. Substantial snacks and full drink menu. Love the idea it's a yacht club, on land!
