Relaxing after ski and live music

This restaurant has a nice terrace for after ski. We went there at least three times and enjoyed it very much. There was an excellent troubadour entertaining and the atmosphere was good. This after ski place is more for relaxing after ski rather than going crazy partying. It has a very good... read more

We dropped in for dinner at Cervo with no idea what to expect. Things got off to a slow start as the menu is unusual and a little long. However once the food arrived, we were absolutely bowled over. Dishes such as caramelised cheese on beetroot, Osso Bucco and White wine risotto were simply delicious. Service was exemplary - some... More

I was there with some colleagues and we had tried different dishes. Very good the salad with eggs and balsamic vinagrette with Truflles and the Lamb. The restaurant has also a very nice view on the mountains around

We spent 500 chf on the poorest meal in Zermatt. The staff was not gracious and not well trained. The receptionist at the door seemed bothered that we were there and the waitress was so aloof that we wanted to apologize for coming. The osso buco was just a stew where a bowl of goulash suppe for 15 chf anywhere... More

At the end of the slope this is a great place to have a wine or beer on the terrace in the sun. Life music and nice view over Zermatt. Swiss prices but its worth to have a stop here. Good service and with the lifts opposite the terrace you are quickly back into Zermatt.

Cervo is a lovely hotel by the slopes of the Zermatt Valley. It is accessible by taking the left by the Sunnegga funicular. You have to walk through the tunnel and turn left just before the funicular gate. Walk past where the people come out from the funicular and the elevator is there. Once you go up, it is actually...

After having skied a few times past this hotel-restaurant, we decided to try it out. I suggest you book a table because it is often fully-booked due to its trendy and beautiful decoration. The restaurant is located on the first floor of the boutique hotel of the same name. Wooden walls, chandeliers and skulls give a modern twist to the... More

We had several meals before and it was always excellent. This time we had to take our teenager twice in a row so they were able to get at least some of the things they wanted to eat. The friendliness of the staff is the best we have experienced so far. Waste no time and make a reservation!

We dined here after skiing every afternoon, the food was lovely, not too much, just enough....warm, cosy and the staff were very friendly. The outside bar was very full, people enjoying the sun. If you sit outside up stairs nice sheepskin seats and blankets to keep you warm in the winter sunshine.
