My wife and I were in Zermatt in July 2014 and we had lunch in this truly amazing little place called Restaurant Ried. Firstly, the location is in a quiet, and open space by itself, with a great view on the Matterhorn. The restaurant has a very nice terrace, with big wooden, rustic table and benches where you are sitting... More

This restaurant is located approximately 30 min away from the Sunegga Station. If you are skiing you will not be inclined to visit it as you will have to go back down to Zermatt after your lunch and will have to take the train again if you want to continue skiing. This beeing said, it has a great terrace facing... More

My daughter and I walked to this lovely restaurant on a sunny April day. A local friend had recommended it. We spent two very pleasant hours. The owners are welcoming, helpful and the food delicious and unpretentious. Very good quality. The views are fabulous and we have relaxed without being time costraint as it often happens in other restaurants. I... More

Patrick and Bea are the most wonderful hosts so welcoming, have been going since they opened.. The food is always 'Tip Top', I absolutely love to be there, cosy in the winter, with a fantastic terrace should the weather permit, and again in the summer when the barbeque is up and running with delicious smells enticing in and a view...

As with Vis-a-Vis, we booked ahead but unlike there, the welcome was personal and attentive, a lovely table outside in the sun ready for us and one inside if the weather faltered! The service was calm, friendly and prompt. And the Wiener Schnitzel large and hearty. Fabulous wines with gemütlichkeit to boot. A wee treasure.

Love this place. Been a lot in the winter and now for the first time have been in the summer. It's got everything: a fantastic view, really friendly staff and great great food (including some "secrets" which aren't on the menu). Highly recommended.

We've been going to Ried now for years and only now getting around to writing a review. This place is an absolute gem. As with most restaurants in Zermatt, it has the advantage of an amazing view, and a great culinary tradition. Ried has the unique advantage of being relatively close to town. The 15 min walk up the hill... More

Food they serve is always with worm and kind hospitalities, Service is so friendly. I see some people visit this restaurant had bad experiences tho I totally doubt that. I... More

The weather in Zermatt was windy today so we stopped here for a drink on the way down the mountain. We sat in the red and white cabin on the terrace and enjoyed our drink. The waitress appeared very grumpy and accused me of using the toilet without buying any food or drink. Her attitude spoilt our otherwise pleasant visit.
