Old favourite still great, under new management

We visited our old favourite with some trepidation this time - it's under new management. We needn't have worried, it is pretty much unchanged. Some tweaks to the menu and the deco, but they still do gorgonzola fondue with pears :-) And our favourite waitress was still there, and says the new... read more

Thank you very much for the positive review! Hope to see you again soon :-). PS: it's not the Gorgonzola Fondue we serve with pears, it's our Fondue "House speciality". More

Have heard about this place for a good number of years and finally got the chance to try what area Swiss say is the ultimate fondue. Quaint setting resembling a mountain chalet with cozy nooks. Wine selection was good as we settled in on a perfect Sauvignon Blanc. One in the group had his own beer fondue in which he... More

Luckily I stopped in and reserved a table in the afternoon because I got the last table. They have 2 sittings at approx 7 and 8-30pm. The cheese fondue with bread and potatoes is really tasty, especially accompanied by a veal sausage if you're feeling hungry. Our waitress was very kind and gave us a sofa seat for our daughter...

When we were in Zermatt, we visited this restaurant. The food was delicious. The staff was welcoming and attentive. It's a great restaurant to enjoy Swiss food. We enjoyed. Highly recommend.

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
