I love Findlerhof. Great food, and the staff were the best out of all the mountain restaurants in Zermatt. Great Quiche and Lamb Shank!

We always try to visit Findlerhof when in Zermatt. For some it's the best in Findeln with unobstructed views of the Matterhorn. I would say it's in the top 3 on mountain restaurants. My husband and I came for lunch earlier this week. We each had salads (others were splitting them) and shared an apple strudel for dessert. The kitchen... More

OK. Off the bat, the title is really not how it sounds. There are many reasons why you wanted to visit Zermatt and this is certainly one of them. It is a bit difficult to find. Ski down from Sunnegga to Findeln, and you will first past Chez Vrony (see my review) which is right by the ski piste, and... More

My personal favourite at Zermatt! Has a great terrace, ask for the upper deck terrace when booking to get the best seats outside. Lovely staff and owners came by to ask how everything went! Menu had a good selection of salads, meats, and fish dishes compared to other restaurants in Findeln. Enjoy!

On a recent week long trip to Zermatt we were advised to book lunch at a couple of the mountain restaurants to avoid disappointment when just turning up un-announced. We did our research as we always do and with this being Trip Advisors #5 (at the time) we thought it well worth a visit! Our booking was made for the... More

Unbelievable setting and wonderful food. A little tricky to get to, but worth every step you take. Reservations are a must. If you are skiing or hiking Zermatt, do not miss this gem.

It is really a toss up between here and Chez Vrony. In our opinion they are both the best restaurants in Zermatt, sadly you can only eat here until 5pm. The service here was by far the best! Everyone was so nice and welcoming. The views are fabulous and all the food was delicious. Save room for the dessert surprise... More

Findlerhof is by far the best restaurant in the area (we have done Chez Roni, Etoike etc). Every food is to perfection and the views on Matterhorn are perfect. Few notes - you need to reserve table well in advance. Either do it at 11:30 or after 14. Findlerhof is weather dependant, so get there on nice day.

Found this restaurant by "mistake" and they were able to accommodate us. Very welcoming and superb food. Had to return a few days later when my wife had joined us. There are many great mountain restaurants here, but this is one of the best.
