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

Good food and good service however a bit overpriced. The appetizer was very good main courses Osso boco were a bit too heavy French fries with garlic and Parmesan poor quality. We had Home made Ice-cream for desert which was of poor quality . The remark of the owner was " ice-cream is an Ice cream " .

Dear Zvi66 Thank you very much for your visit and feedback on TripAdvisor. We had a nice chat that evening and I remember the issue with the ice cram :-) Unfortunately you did not accept my offer to try one of the other lovely desserts as a compensation. Hope you will next time! Regarding the CERVO Fries: they are home... More

I had chosen this restaurant as our goodbye dinner in Zermatt; as it had great reviews. However, I think the food overall was mediocre. The service was great, so only good things to say to them. We had the misfortune of going there on a Friday night and witnessed the loud and snuffy attitude of many clients who had come... More

I had dinner at this restaurant by recommendation of a swiss friend who likes the restaurant very much. Since all the restaurants at the day of our visit were pretty full we could only have a reservation for 9:30 PM which ruined a bit the glamour of the restaurant since the attendants were somewhat tired already. The food choice is... More

Super location! Excellent food, unusual dishes. Good service! Not to miss! I like it for lunch or dinner and the view is spectacular. Also reachable by ski or hike. Open summer and winter! Nice for a dinner with good friends!

Thank you very much for the taking the time to review us on TA. Although the CERVO Fries are a classic and people love them, of course you can order them without truffle and parmesan! Hope to see you soon and best regards to Mac ;-) Daniel More
