Very good meal

On our first night in Zermatt this was the first place we tried. We had a main course and desert and the food was excellent.

Definitely make your reservations beforehand. Popular place. Very nice staff and excellent high quality beef fondue - unlike anything we've had anywhere else. We'll be back.

Voted our favorite dining spot by our 10 adults and 8 kids. Across the street from the church, we came right in after Saturday mass. We enjoyed traditional Valais cuisine and loved everything. They made an alcohol-free fondue for the kids and some adults which was a smash hit. Food was wonderful and we'd love not to be 4,000 away.... More

This authentic restaurant offers a great variety of food and wine. We spent a few hours there savoring Fondue Bourgignonne in a very pleasant atmosphere. Great place to go with friends.

This was our first time visiting since the change of management. We usually found ourseleves here out of habit, but the last few visits really left us wondering if we should bother coming back. Unfortunately, this visit confirmed that we should look to go elsewhere when we next feel like a decent Fondue. Firstly, nothing much has changed in the... More

We went here for New Year's and it was nice not to have a fixed menu, but they also had that option. The place was filled with Swiss German speakers, so you know it's legit. We had delicious meat-best beef in Zermatt. The wait staff was even very specific w my order. A great night right by the church square.

Thank you for your feedback and review on Tripadvisor. We regret very much that you had a bad experience in our Restaurant.... that you had to wait to order, to get your drinks and, finally, that you did not get what you ordered! Concerning the wine at your neighbors table: we refilled the bottle with the wine in the glasses... More

Was recommended to the restaurant by our hotel and we couldn't have been happier with the choice! The service was outstanding and it was such a cozy and quaint little restaurant with a wonderful historic value. Eat the fondue!!! Its what the restaurant is known for and it's all for the right reasons.
