Lovely .... And closing April 30, 2015

We had a great cheese fondue and salads with a nice dry Swiss Fendant wine. The old stone cellar space had couples, families and groups all enjoying themselves with a very unhurried but professional service.

We just spent a week in Zermatt and twice visited Whymper Stube. Super meals with excellent service. Would fully recommend the cheese fondu with pears.

There are 2 places I can recommend in Zermat for traditional cheese food, this is one of them, always full, but excellent food! Given the high turnover don't expect the best service in the world, but the staff is friendly and does its best to manage the mass of people.

We were highly recommended the Fondue Chinoise (meat fondue) by the dry-humoured waitress who also helped us paired our wine. The cut of meat was of top quality and came with a vast selection of condiments and vegetables. The flavours and textures were definitely of fine-dining grade in a unassuming, humble, and cozy Swiss chalet. We had to stop ourselves... More

Keep in mind, if your idea of Fondue is The Melting Pot, check your experience at the door. The first thing you will notice when you walk in is the strong, strong aroma of rich cheese. You may not be used to it and it may set you back a step. Give it a few minutes and you will get... More

This place is smack in the middle of the main street in Zermatt. It is just across from the Museum. It has a great traditional setting and fully booked during the night we went there. I booked ahead so it was fine. Everyone (here in TripAdvisor) said the Fondue is great here so I am excited to try it. No,... More
