I visited this restaraunt (if you can call it that) on a recent trip to Zermatt for a caffine fix and left wishing I had never stepped into the place. The waitress that served me obviously was having a bad day, I asked for a cafe creme with and extra shot of espresso, she brought me a half cup of... More

We had two hot chocolate's here, nothing to eat. The hot chocolate was as good as one can expect in Switzerland and considering the location the price was very reasonable. There seemed to be only one server working in the restaurant however and we, amongst other diners had to actually get up and go to the kitchen in order to... More

Arrived v hungry with kids. Waitress v dismissive. Large party arrived after us and she brought them all place settings and bread first while we sat there with starving kids. She didn't care when it was pointed out. Tired interior. We left without ordering as had waited long enough. Went down to sunnegga it was much better

This restaurant is located at the upper station of the Gondola Blauherd-Rothorn. It enjoys a spectacular view on several 4000 meter peaks, including the Monte-Rosa and the Matterhorn. Unfortunately, the staff does not enjoy working and provides the "minimum service". It is not rare to have to insist just to place your order. As to the food, it is more... More

Great views on a sunny day and really good food. The menu is a bit limited, as iwth many of the mountain places. But what they had they did well. Some nice pasta dishes, great Rosti, etc. Also decent service.

Feels like sitting on the top of the world. An ordinary alp-restaurant with swiss prices. Me and my wife shared the Rösti of the house in the sun. Could not ask for more!

Outstanding view, but difficult to find a table and quite expensive for potatoes and an egg.

The restaurant is at the top of the Rothorn Paradise lift system, and definitely has great views (when the weather is clear). The food is decent, but way overpriced for the quality - you get the double whammy of ski-lodge food typically being expensive and Switzerland being expensive. An average entree was 18-26 Swiss francs, which I think was about... More
