Great ski down for lunch under the shadow of the Matterhorn. Quiet on a Monday but we made sure of a table by booking. Too cold to sit out on terrace but excellent views. Comfortable dining rooms with friendly but slightly formal service. A couple at the next table were well not their main course which made it easy for... More

Restaurant Stafelalp is not on the normal route back to The Village. The detour to it is definitely worth it. From both the restaurant and the road to it you see just how impressive the Matterhorn is. The food is exquisite. We had a meat dish which is highly recommended. The served meat comes from there own herd. You can... More

Despite of the lovely ambiente and the great staff, restaurant Stafelalp definitely has one of the best desert in all of Zermatt! We stayed at Stafelalp numerous times before (and Daniela, the chief of Stafelalp, always welcomed us personally). This time, we tried the "tarte tatin" for the first time. It is one of the "house made" desert of restaurant... More

I think this restaurant has one of the best innovative menus on the mountain in Zermatt. The run down to the restaurant is really beautiful and when you get to the restaurant you have some of the best views of the Matterhorn. The food and service were both excellent and I would go back in a heartbeat. The only negative... More

Friendly staff but the food was pretentious and very expensive, even for Zermatt. It seems to have changed hands since last year... shame. We had consomme which was served in kilner jars with wisps of hay on the plate. Strange. It was accompanied with some excellent Walliserbrot, made unusally with figs, almonds and raisins.

We have been here twice in three days of skiing in Zermatt. It is a lovely place to have lunch or just a drink. Brilliant cosy dining room with a very high class yet very relaxed feel about it. Food is great and the hot wine amazing Please do try this out if you have any chance! When you are... More

While on a mountain biking trip to Zermatt, we stopped at this restaurant every morning for coffee while riding in the Schwarzsee area. Coffee was excellent and the service was perfect. Incredible view of the Matterhorn.

On the way from Schwarzsee to Zermatt, we found this restaurant. The interior was very beautiful. From the window, we enjoyed landscape. We just took a short break and ordered coffee. Though it is the mountain restaurant, the price of coffee was the same with Zermatt, not so expensive.

The food is probably the best I had in Zermatt..... I think I would have ate here everyday if I had the chance. It was recommended by the owners of Christoph Taxi and wow was she right. The views, food, service and staff were top notch. Thanks so much for making such a memorable impression....
