Fab food, SUPER friendly service, great location!

We have been coming to Franz & Heidi's for a long time and simply LOVE it! There is certainly no better location! Granted, many places in the mountains around Zermatt have super views of the Matterhorn, but none are better than this! It's the very last restaurant before the hike down to the village... read more

Very nice food and most friendly service. Always pleasant to stop there after a walk, in fact it is a good excuse for walking!

We hiked up and ate there. The food is very good, and the service is very good as well. I had the pasta with mushrooms, and my wife had soup, salad.

As a regular Zermatt guest a visit to Franz & Heidi is always on the list. Must say, the quality which comes out of the kitchen is extremly good. It has been like this for so many years and it is amazing how well they manage things at the Findlerhof. The price and quality ratio is perfect. Many other Restaurants... More

Really enjoyed our visit but the competition is tough and there are better options nearby like Zum See- my favourite in the world.

Views are amazing. Food was very good to good depending on dish. Service was awful. British waitress seemed completely uninterested in explaining dishes or making suggestions. Restaurant was not busy so it was not lack of time. The female owner was also short- annoyed my husband wanted another glass of wine(his second?) The male owner was better as my steak... More

We were at Findlerhof in the 4th week of June. The restaurant had just opened the day before for the summer, so it was quite empty. Franz and Heidi were very gracious. The weather that day was beautiful and the views from the terrace tables was excellent. One of us had the beef with rosti and the others had the... More

I loved this gorgeous little place, up on the hills outside of Zermatt. Takes about 1.5 hrs to walk up to it (can get there lots of different ways). It's owned by a lovely couple who seem to take great pleasure in serving you their gorgeous tasty food in a fabulous location with views from the little decking out over... More

Absolutely worth the hike up. Probably the best meal we had in our 10 day vacation, which included many 1 and 2 Michelin star restaurants. Incredible view and the hike up is fun and not too tough. Very happy that we didn't miss this during our stay.
