Fabulous Apres Ski Scene

This is the last bar on a ski-out trail, just before you get to the elevator to go down to the main road. It has a casual and contemporary deck, perfectly situated to the setting sun and had a good singer/guitarist entertaining the crowd. The backdrop behind the stage is a beautiful mountain... read more

its an awesome looking hotel and restaurant, but the food really was not all that exciting and the truffle fries everyone raves about it I only ended up eating half of them. After our meal went over to the cigar lounge for an after mail stogie but that was even more disappointing as the cigar started to peel. Looking in... More

I accidentally made reservations at CERVO (it's a long story but yes, this all happened by accident!); therefore, our group wasn't exactly sure what to expect. It was our last night in Zermatt, and we were hoping for traditional Swiss dishes at their other new restaurant Ferdinand. Instead, we had a menu of fine dinning options. While our meal was... More

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 location - it is at the bottom when... 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...
