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.

We stumbled onto this gem on the way down to the village on the last run. Intending only some hot beverages, we stayed 3 hours and skied out in the dark, warmed to the bone with tasty food. As an Alaskan, I can't recommend too highly a place where the owners have a remote Alaskan fishing lodge in summer and... More

On 19th August we had an great Barbecue at "Othmar's Hütte". On the amazing sun terrace we enjoyed a very tasty salmon toast to start. After we had a very impressive choice of different meats which was made on the grill in the middle of the terrace. We could eat as much as we can to a really very good... More

Tuesday night. Book your table. Rent your toboggan. Get the last Sunegga lift up at 5 - don't be late. Then toboggan down to Othmar's. Go for the fondue. It's a great evening. After dinner the toboggan back to town in the dark is magical. Great evening and well worth doing if you go to Zermatt in the winter.
