Snow good!

After hiking from Sunnega, we really needed a break. Our legs where aching our stomachs where rumbling. Then all of a sudden this quaint Swiss style structure loomed in front of us. Before you could say schnapps, we where seated ready to be wined and dined. This lovely young girl made us feel right... read more

This cosy mountain hut is operated by a couple who spend winters in Zermatt, and summers in Alaska. This translates into the cuisine, with the specialty being Wild Alaska Salmon based dishes. Food is very good, and contrary to some reviews below we found the service to be both friendly and attentive.

In addition to running a truly unique and wonderful restaurant in the Alps the owners also run a fishing camp in Alaska. The mix of the two makes for a unique menu and dining experience. Food, service and setting combine to make this a very special place. Don't miss it!!

Othmar's is located on the red piste (#2, Ried) down from Rothorn. Seafood is fantastic, I strongly recommend Crab Pot: Alaskan crab, prawns, langoustines, scallops, clams. Alaskan salmon is also very tasty but this Crab Pot - unbelievable!!!! Have been there 3 times, will come back when I come to Zermatt next year. The waiters are very friendly and helpful... More

This cool Swiss ski hut serves delicious gourmet mostly Swiss cuisine with a twist. They feature Alaskan salmon. Since its quite common in the states we opted for the reindeer special which was fantastic. I'm really happy that we stumbled across the quaint restaurant. The service was very friendly and fast especially considering that it was quite busy.

On a snowy day decided to ski back to Zermatt - being hungry following sign for Restaurant - not easy to ski in out for beginner when we visited. On a snowy day luckily a table was found inside . Traditional dishes like Rosti & soup - then seemed to have excellent selection of everything else.

We loved the place. Everything we ate was wonderful. The staff was so friendly. The only thing is the service was a bit slow.

Stopped for a meal several times. Very good food, though not cheap, like everything in Zermatt :) Better to book a table in the morning for a fix time for a relaxing lunch, with Matterhorn view. Owners are friendly.

Great place on you way back to Zermatt on skis. Fish is the speciality, but everything is just perfect at Othmars.

Be very careful when you are going down the slope, you might miss the place if you go too fast! Look at your left. Great place to have a relaxing lunch after a hard day of skiing.
