Our favourite place in Zermat!

Excellent food, coffee (REALLY good coffee) and service in this charming little family run cafe. We were so delighted by it all that we went back everyday! (Highly recommend the carpaccio)

We had a romantic stop here on our way down from the slopes. A cute wind shielded table for two at the end of the sun deck, hanging over the Valley side overlooking Zermatt and the Mountains.

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.
