Amazing service, and very welcoming atmosphere. Like coming home. The food was good but not great. Could ask for a little more love on the kids menus - like adding something green... The risotto w lobster and scallops was very rich, but a little to salty and "wet". The burger was good, and the fries tasty. Overall good, but not... More

Magical location, beautiful setting, excellent food with great staff. I can't say enough good things about this restaurant. Enjoyed late Friday afternoon lunch on the deck - best burger and fries ever. Really. Tried to make reservations for dinner the following night, but restaurant was fully committed. Note that the property is undergoing some construction that looked to be nearing... More

The terrasse is a good spot for late afternoon sun. The place was nearly empty when we arrived, not well kept and soulless. We had a late lunch and while the food was good (but not special), the portions were very small but with a hefty price tag. The place tries to be cool und upmarket, but is not cozy... More

Dear luxuryvoyage I read it once, twice and a third time… No doubt - it must have been a terrible experience and I am deeply shocked. Bad day, Murphy's law, end of season? Well, it is too late for now but we will closely review what happened that day on that terrace! Pleas accept my apologize. I would be grateful... More

My son (15 year old) made our reservation because he heard the food was good. We were not disappointed. My husbands said his ravioli with truffle oil (just one) was the most delicious he had every had. I had the sea bass with spinach that was also delicious. Our son ordered a hamburger that was extremely expensive for a burger...and... More

The best dinner we had in Zermatt and probably best dinner ever! A very cosy place with an outside bar in case you feel for having a drink before dinner. Professional and friendly staff.

Wonderful intimate cabin atmosphere which made you feel like you were in somebody's home. Food was top notch - not molecular gastronomy or 3 michelin stars but very nice entree and mains (more hearty, traditional with a slight flair). Wine / Cocktails were also very good. The accomodating staff just make it worth the effort to write this review! Highly... More

It is a fine restaurant ranked #1. BUT When you pay +50% than any other comparable restaurant in Zermatt (and making efforts to keep it at reasonable cost), you should expect: - That they give you one os the tables facing Matterhorn (free all the time during our service) but we were sited at the end of the room facing...

Dear GonsoSpain Expectation is the mother of all frustration. We regret that we were not able to reach your expectation and that your visit was frustrating. Well, may be we can do it one day? Using the best quality of ingredients (e.g. organic beef etc.) has its price. However I would love to have your recommendations for a restaurant that... More

Once you found the location, Cervo offers a phantastic view over Zermatt and - of course - of the Matterhorn. The stylish but cosy place is managed by young owners Daniel and Seraina Lauber who have done a great job in creating an athmosphere of new defined luxury without the "dusty old fashioned way". Come as you are and enjoy... More
