Great music, ambiance and burgers! I had the Greek burger which had a huge lamb patty, salad and best of all lots of goats cheese and beetroot. I had potatoes as a side and they were cooked to perfection, golden brown and flavoured with rosemary.

The food was really nice. We started off with vegetables with a humous dip, chicken satay and edamame beans. Then two of us had halibut for main which was a special and very good.

Delicious meal!!!! My husband and I hiked many hours on the Zermatt trails and were in need of food. We walked into Snowboat with lower expectations because it didn't look like much from the outside. Wow were we wrong. My husband got the "Spicy Burger" and I got the "Boat Salad." We were both blown away by the different flavors... More

The bar is lively and friendly at the Visp river at after ski hours, but the restaurant downstairs lack ambiance, the menu is lacklustre and the kitchen runs a routine show put on auto repeat.

Unusual venue with lovely sun loungers, seats on the roof, perfect for après ski drink. Bar is small but busy and the restaurant downstairs is friendly with an aquarium to view. The food is very tasty and service was good. Worth booking as can get very busy.

Nice place with idea and fine atmosphere. You will wait for food longer, but it worth it. They have great coctails and during summer, you can sit outside and relax... Just sit and chill out :)
