Description: Time for specialeaties. Time for Tradition Julen. "Everyone is welcome in Restaurant Julen." That was as important for Meinrad Julen as it is today for the third generation of the family business. In the morning local workers stop by for their coffee break, at noon the traditional cuisine attracts businessmen, families and passers-by, and in the evening the cozy restaurant serves gourmet food based in traditional cuisine. New menus are created daily with love and passion. From the salad bar to beef tenderloin and lamb specialties to the hearty cheese fondue and dessert buffet on Thursdays, the a la carte menu has something for all tastes. Enjoy our carefully selected assortment of international wines. Make sure to reserve a table early!

During our trip to Zermatt, we randomly chose this restaurant while walking in the village. We were really lucky, since restaurant Julen was wonderful! From the time we entered the restaurant, we noticed that every little detail has been thought of and organised by the owner/staff. The food and the service were excellent. It was a bit expensive but well... More

We loved both the food and the service! Kids menu was good and the staff was so friendly and helpful. Food was well prepared and good value for money (not more pricy than other restaurants in Zermatt).

Went there twice for dinner during our stay at the hotel Julen. Nice atmosphere and great service. The food was excellent - they serve great grilled meats, and also have a generous salad bar.

Very tasty, especialy the filet is very tender.. Also a plus for all the ladies: some of the main dishes can be orderd as halfportions, which is a big portion too, so you can also get a starter..They have tasty wine from the region.. The staff is very kind, fast and professional...The price is midhigh, but worth it!

This is best ever: Schwarznasen Schaf, grilled. A Must and definitly not to compare with ordinary Lamb. Mr. Julen even offered a Table although the Restaurant was fully booked. Tks again.

Just back from a weekend break at Zermatt during Easter. The restaurant was one of the best ones I have been to so far in Switzerland in the last two years, given the quality, service and the price. We were staying at Hotel Daniela, a sister hotel. For a half-board package, the dinner was served in this restaurant. The menu... More
