First week of February 2016. Spending an awesome week with American friends skiing in Zermatt and of course every lunch had to be scheduled and properly reserved in one of the many good restaurants on the slopes of Zermatt. The skiing conditions might lag behing Colorado's or Utah's, but the food... read more

Excellent food on the slopes. We had to sit inside because of the cold weather outside, it was cozy. But if weather permits do book ahead a table outside. Service was very friendly and prompt. They offer different types of fondue.

Amazing little place, a perfect spot to ski down to on a good day or hike up to on the snowy day. It is a good 40 minute walk up from the city and a nice way to wake up your appetite, featuring some amazing Swiss specialties. All is good, but do try the kidney or sweetbreads, nobody can make...

Food was absolutely fantastic and the service was great! There were no tables left outside when we arrived, but they did everything they could to accommodate us and actually physically got us a table! Will definitely be going back! Thanks for a lovely lunch!

The food and wine selection are second to non on the piste in Zermatt. The inside part of the restaurant is beautifully decorated and the service and attention to detail amazing. Marcus and his team can't do enough. It makes a perfect last stop before skiing home at the end of a long day or sit out in the courtyard... More

Would definitely recommend having a booking for this restaurant. Food was excellent but service was chaotic. Avoid later in the week and weekend if you can.

A very small, traditional mountain restaurant on the final run back to the Klein Matterhorn Lift station (which can be crowded and icy at the end of the day. The restaurant can be reached on foot from the village. Allow 30 minutes at least in winter. Three chefs produce an excellent array of dishes from a kitchen about the size... More

The food was ok but not terribly exciting, but the service was the worst in Zermatt. You might want to know that this place has the gull to charge for TAP WATER, outrageous!!!
