If you like cheese then you will love this place. We came here as a couple and had a very nice seat. The fondue was exceptional and I would say I have not tasted a better one. The owner is a lovely lady and very friendly. She recommended a bottle of wine for us which went very well with the... More

My friend and I stumbled upon this place while we were wandering around town looking for a place to eat a cheese fondue. We were warmly greeted by the server and given a table immediately. The server guided us through the menu and we decided to go with the Käsefondue mit frischen Champignons. It was delicious, definitely the highlight of... More

Fantastic fondue in a traditional wood panelled cozy restaurant. The restaurant is conveniently located just off the main street and is easy to find. We had a reservation and the restaurant was completely full despite it being the very start of the season. We opted for the cheese fondue with chilli which was fantastic - one of the best I've...

People might be worried that a unique place or one with character might be a tourist trap. Every visit to Zermatt I wll go there and enjoy either one of the "Schnitzels", meat fondues, raclettes or cherries in Schnaps deserts. The restaurant is small and extremely busy during the seasons but I like the nice staff and good food. Be... More

I was the first person in the door for lunch when it opened at 2 pm as I had heard this restaurant gets very busy at night. I was the only diner inside for the entire hour. I ordered the cheese fondue with a glass of white wine. Both were tasty and I thought reasonably priced. I ended the meal... More

I learned about this restaurant here on TripAdvisor, and we're very glad we went! We stopped in one afternoon for a late lunch, and we were the only people there at the time. At that hour, there was a limited menu, but this was fine for us as we were on a quest for fondue. The restaurant has a very... More

We walked past this several times as it is below street level, but found it after receiving a recommendation from our hotel owner. So pleased we ate here before leaving! Friendly service, nice and casual, with amazing fondue! We had cheese fondue with Gorgonzola, which was delicious. For dessert we had the giant meringue, and an apricot sorbet with prosecco....

If you are looking for fondue in Zermatt, this is the place. It has cozy little rooms with a wonderful selection of cheese and meat fondues (we got the the 3 cheese special that was lovely and we loved all the sides they provided - not just bread and potatoes but also a selection of fruit and vegetables).
