Hid from the rain for some fondue and wine. Lovely food, great recommendation from the waitress, nice and cosy atmosphere. Would recommend. One of the best meals we had in Zermatt

We were looking for good Swiss food and were not disappointed, definitely a meal to remember. We had the beef fondue for two people, plus the obligatory raclette...YUM. This was our first beef fondue experience and (along with other tourists doing the same thing) the staff were very kind and helpful through our ignorance of what to do. Even though... More

We visited this cosy little restaurant for one of their advertised specialities, name the cheese fondue. Thankfully we walked in when we did as we did not have a reservation, and aft being allocated the last available table at this wildly popular eatery we witnessed the staff having to turn people away as they were simply 100% full. The staff... More

We visited this restaurant several times during a recent holiday stay, and found it a great choice. Although the menu is not huge, the food was always prepared to a high standard using fresh local ingredients, the service was consistently friendly and helpful, and the atmosphere was pleasant. It was also reasonably priced, and in our opinion one of the... More

Best to make reservation because it's quite a popular restaurant! We just popped our head in an hour before dinner and made the reservation. We had cheese fondue which was great, but the best of the night was their Raclette!! Yum! Staffs are friendly and speak English.

We were looking for something different to eat while in Zermatt and Whymper-Stube fit the bill. The atmosphere is casual with excellent service but the food the beat our expectations. I ordered grilled boar which was delicious and served with an excellent sauce.

My family had the pleasure of eating here June 19, 2014 after a trip up the mountain to see the Matterhorn. You have to look for this restaurant as it is down some stairs outside and through a curtain. We were there early afternoon and didn't have to wait at all. We absolutely loved it! The food was great...and we... More

Friends recommended this as one of the best restaurant in Zermatt. This is on the opposite end of the Main Street from the train station that one would typically arrive in or leave Zermatt by train. The entrance, rather unassuming, is on the side of the building. We went there about 7PM when it was peak dinner time. The restaurant... More

It was recommended that we try the cheese fondue at Whymper-Stube and we are so glad we did. It was wonderful; hot and bubbly with Swiss cheeses, fingerling potatoes and bread cubes. My grand daughter and I ordered the Fondue for two and there was more than we could finish. Many locals eat here and that in itself is a... More
