Great service and great food. Wine list was good too. We all enjoyed our meal of choice. We were seated downstairs. Worthwhile and good value.

We visited this restaurant last year. Last year our experience was very disappointing poor food slow service and very un children friendly. This year I am happy to see they completely rethought the restaurant. The menu and staff have changed. Now the menu is modern Americana. Yummy and visually exciting. They added a children menu. Service is quick and friendly.... More

This restaurant seems to get high ratings on trip advisor so we were looking forward to our meal last night. We had a table booked for 7.30 and arrived 5-10 mins early and were shown to our table. The restaurant was quiet with only a couple of tables occupied although the bar upstairs was pretty full. We ordered the hummus... More

Great place to visit, and food did not dissapoint. The atmosphere is very relaxed, yet still felt like a real treat. You could go for romantic meal yet would be as good with a group of friends. You just got to visit the place to appreciate it. The food was excellent

An amazing place for those who are tired of fancy gourmet restaurant atmosphere, but still want to eat a fine dining quality food. We went there 2 times and were never disappointed. Not only their burgers are good, but also they offer a tender meat (lamb and beef steaks), fish and duck. And also soup, it's great! Service was perfect,... More

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.
