Very good Traditional Swiss restaurant

There were four of us for a dinner in August 2015. This is a real authentic Swiss restaurant and my Swiss family has a tradition to go there each time they are in ZERMAT. Do not expect elaborated variety of dishes on the menu, but it will be a very good quality of food and service

We ate here on our first night in Zermatt on the recommendation of the hotel concierge when we said we wanted a restaurant that did a good Fondue Chinoise. Well we ordered not just a Chinoise but also a cheese fondue with beer .... we were gluttons. and it was all AMAZING. The restaurant is very comfortable, traditional and has... More

The restaurant has the very best fondues I have ever tried, matched with local red wine from the area. I would recommend to share a cheese fondue for a starter and continue with meat - but make sure to be hungry.. The interior is very local and nice looking, authentic Zermatt (we belive).

Small menu but the food is great and quality wine by the glass. Can hear the live music from the pop-up bar across the road in a classier surrounding and more comfortable, as the temperature drops quickly when the sunsets.

Stopped here just for a quick drink and appetizer. Had the raclette. Good food, enjoyed sitting outside for a quick bite. A little pricey, but again, we didn't stay for a full meal. The food others were eating did look delicious though!

We were very happy to be able to eat at the well known whymper-stube restaurant on the main street leading to the station in Zermatt. Its popularity such that we had to persuade the manager to allow us to come with a large group. We ate there thanks to two of our group who influenced the manager to readjust the... More

I learned about this restaurant here on Trip Advisor, and we're very glad we went! So we went for dinner as we were on a quest for fondue. The restaurant has a very cozy atmosphere and was exactly what we were envisioning in an Alpine resort town. The waitress was very polite and professional! The fondue itself was absolutely delightful,... More

Our family of four decided we wanted fondue one night when we were visiting Zermatt. We chose the Restaurant Whymper and we're graciously seated by the host. That was the best part of the meal. We waited for our food for an hour after it was ordered. We requested water and were given a small pitcher that wouldn't fill two... More

Thank you for your review. We really regret your bad experience in our Restaurant. The price is appropriate and not higher than what you have to pay elsewhere in Switzerland for a good quality fondue. Your criticism in terms of our service quality we take seriously and we are working on it! So that at least other guests do not... More

Restaurant staffs are all very nice. We had beer cheese fondue, very tasty. It's able to order from 2, but too much for 2 person. It might a little bit salty for asian people.

Thank you for your review. The salt in the fondue comes from the cheese. For all our fondues we use a mix of three different high quality original swiss cheese. We would be glad to welcome you again in our cosy place. More

While in Zermatt our mission was authentic fondue and this is exactly what they served us! A quaint little restaurant on Bahnhofstrasse in the center of Zermatt is a perfect setting with atmosphere to fit the setting. Greeted by Daniella's warm and friendly smile, we let her suggest everything from the apps, wine and the main course, Rachlette, Traditional Cheese... More
