Food, wine, service at it's best

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.

We have had lunch before at the Cervo Restaurant, the Burger were always quiet good and even tho the menu was not that big there was something for everyone. This year we made a reservation at the restaurant and as we stopped by they told us that they were fully booked in the upper floor and that our table was... More

Perfect spot for Apres Ski. The music is always good and staff are friendly. The new restaurant inside - Ferdinands - is also good but watch how much you order - you cook your own meat and cheese on hot plates and it can be a lot of food!

The food is great - Cervo fries have to be chosen - particularly the meat ! Great wine list ! Indeed a great place to be in Zermatt, one of favorite... More

We stayed several days over the New Year 2015 week and enjoyed the beautiful weather. Ending a ski day (just close to the Sunnegga or Gornergrat station) in Cervo is just a must. Unfortunately in January the sun is not catching the terrace too long, which means outside is rather too cold during this months but due to the fact... More

We enjoyed a very nice dinner with our friends at the Cervo. The black cod was delicious and the starters very good as well. Very nice wine list. The only small downside: the menu list is not very big and still exactly the same as in July.
