We discovered this restaurant in the backstreets of Zermatt, went downstairs and found a cosy very comfortable restaurant away from the cool night air that is typical of The town even in summer. The menu was varied, I had the venison and my wife the pork fillet, and it was perfectly cooked. This is particularly important for my wife who... More

Sure, it was a busy weekend in Zermatt, but the reception we received as we walked down the stairs into the restaurant was distinctly frosty. The waitress turned us away but then let us eat at the bar. While we were there, the waitress turned down other hungry customers, even as room became available in the restaurant. The steak was...

No good. The place is in the cellar. Food is only above bad. It is kind of when you say, I ate and it is good that I did not get poisoned. :) would not recomend going there. The place is small and lacking atmosphere.

Those who are familiar with real steakhouses will arrive at any restaurant with calls itself a steakhouse and will expect a menu with at least 5 different cuts of beef. That is not the case here and thus the true steak lover will be disappointed here. It is actually misleading to use the term "steakhouse" in the name of this... More

We were craving a good simple meal - good quality tender, tasty steak and or salmon with veg or salad, and were not disappointed at this very understated restaurant. Service was efficient & friendly.

We liked the food we got and the friendly service. Both, meat and accompanying side dishes were of good quality and the kitchen crew was very flexible with respect to changes we requested to the dish.

We had a nice time in the "zur alten Muhle" when we visited last Friday. As already written the place is quite small and as such we were happy to see that the restaurant was not overcrowded as we did want to have a nice and quiet time and we definitaly had it. The menu is quite limited but nevertheless... More
