One of my top 3 in Zermatt.

My first visit for quite some time. Our ski instructor lives in this little hamlet so is well known. Food is top rate. Service very good. Views literally breathtaking. The path to get down to the restaurant is a little tricky if you don't have sound feet. Well worth the trip.

We had a perfect meal at Finderhof on our first day of skiing in Zermatt. We sat outside and while it was a bit chilly, the restaurant had blankets ready for us and they invited us several times to sit inside. We ordered a sashimi platter, sampling of pastas, the amazing quiche and a delicious bottle of wine recommended by... More

Great food, reasonably priced, friendly staff. Cramped inside but that just lends to the authentic feel!

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.
