Great location and service, better food nearby

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.

If you think Chez Vrony's is good, this is even better. My all time favourite mountain restaurant. The tuna carpaccio is exceptional and if you are really lucky Franz has made his wild mountain goat stew. Nothing disappoints!

This place is truly stunning, the service was very good, she spoke perfect English and German was attentive and friendly, the food was amazing. The best steak I ever had. The Perfect place to stop on an easy hike down from the Sunnegga to 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!
