Delicious lamb chop from black face sheep

The owner owns few hundred of black face sheep and the lamb chop comes from his own sheep. The sheep live and sleep in the mountain. The lamb chop is very tasty.

Stopped here twice while walking around the Matterhorn area. the first time was just for drinks. Good beers and coffee and made to feel very welcome. The second time we decided to try the food which had looked really good as it went by the first time. I had the Matterhorn burger which was topped with goats cheese and my... More

Obviously set up for the ski trade, this is a super spot in summer too. You need to walk or bike in (do the Matterhorn Paradise Trail - easy 2-3 hour walk through great scenery). You then come across this restaurant with great outside dining area with to-die-for views of the Matterhorn. Only had desert but is was scrumptious. Antipasta... More

The restaurant is owned by Julen Family and Daniela and Paul, her son, did a great job to turn it into a must visit place. Located on piste 52 you the restaraunt is easily accessible. You get absolutely smashing view of Matterhorn. All meats offered at Stafelalp are homegrown. Fondue with local herbs is simply divine. In my opinion, this... More

I have known this mountain top restaurant for many years. Always good. This year I was literally blown away because they were serving moreton bay bugs with tagliatelle. I have spent a lot on time in Oz recently so could believe my good fortune to find them some 10,000 miles away. My party all saw how excited I was so... More

I have had lunch at StafelAlp, off and on, for over 10 years and have never been disappointed with the food and service. Today was no exception. Booking is recommended. Next year a new chair lift is planned, in place of the Horli lift, which will make it more accessible.

Location under the Matterhorn seems to justify the highest priced burgers I have come across. Unfortunately the quality lacks behind. Drinks way overpriced - even by Swiss standards. Service good.

When planning to eat here we always arrive by 12 noon to make sure we get a good table. Then we can vacate the table for those who have booked for 1.30 or 2.00. The Lady in charge is always accommodating and finds us a good table. Really interesting food and the addition of some fruit in the salads is... More

The pasta with lobster was very tasting and the service extremely attentive and friendly. Sitting outside in the sun at the foot of the Matterhorn is something you must have done when skiing in Zermatt.
