Great food, not so great desserts.

The starters and main courses are really good, but the desserts are very disappointing: cold apple strudel with warm vanilla sauce, milk chocolate mousse that doesn't taste of chocolate and the tiramisu is quite bleh.

This is certainly not a cheap eat but boy this place is just absolutely divine. Must have: tris di primi, veal cutlet, beef tartare, foie gras. But if you are on a budget, please make yourself a huge gastronomic favour and take the veal cutlet, it is one of the best dishes I ever I had.

Ski down past the famous Chez Vrony, unclip your skis and walk down a narrow path to reach this fantastic authentic mountain restaurant. Our party of 8 all had delicious main courses from the famous Veal chop to the perfectly looked lamb to the simple rosti nothing disappointed. All washed down with a bottle of Dole Blanche...doesn't get much better.

amazing food- had lamb with pasta which was to die for. A large portion even for the hungriest of skiers. The hosts and their team are welcoming and very friendly. The service is perfect- the waitress is there just when you need her, which is not luck but excellent training and experience. A world apart from the debacle at yesterday's... More

Back again this year with same group. Wonderful alpine location I traditional surroundings with wonderful views over the Matterhorn. A little bit of an awkward walk from ski slopes but there is a warm welcome and the focus is on the quality food. The fish soup is a specialty but I went for the beef carpaccio - finely sliced, served... More

After living in Zermatt for years and experiencing every restaurant the mountain has to offer, I can assure you that Findlerhof is by far the best dining experience you will find. The food is consistently amazing- always have the specials (I've never been disappointed), or the quiche..everything is always fresh and presented beautifully. The service is as you would expect...

We went for lunch with my wife during Christmas period. After an 1 hour walk from Zermatt we found this place. Service was very good and waiters very kind. We didn't book however the manager found a table for an hour which was enough for us. We took some local plate Rosti with bacon and eggs and a Valaisanne meat... More

This place is a short walk from the trail, but it's worth the 100M walk. The restaurant is awesome, outside dining, and dining in a glass patio. The staff was very friendly and the food was awesome.
