Perfectly Executed Private Event

This review is for a private dinner buyout of Zum See in March 2015. Overall, the food, service and ambiance made this evening the most memorable part of our three-day summit in Zermatt.

Stopped here for lunch after our plan to ski in Cervinia was foiled by high winds. We skied down from Furi from where the restaurant is signposted. We had not booked and so we're lucky to get a table. Despite it being very cold it was a lovely experience - the sun and blue skies and blankets certainly helped. A... More

There are many restaurants in Zermatt that are excellent. Zum See is one of the truly outstanding one - excellent food, good wine list, and a very nice and charming place overall. Been there 2 times in a week!

My husband and boys skied down from the Gonergrat to meet me for lunch. I hiked up the trail from Zermatt - about 30 minute uphill hike to reach Zum See. The food was very good for a mountain restaurant. We had the sole meunière and homemade pastas for lunch. The dessert of choice is their cream filled Mille fueille... More

We had a very nice lunch, it is a charming location, just off the slope. A good wine list and simple well prepared food.

Can not describe the experience. Definitely one of the best places I've been to in the world. Took the lift to Furi and walked down. Totally worth it.

This is probably one of the best mountain restaurants in the world. Nothing fancy, just genuine great craftmanship in a fantastic, authentic alpine setting. Great view of the Matterhorn and personal and friendly service.

A brilliant lunch opportunity , hidden on the way to from Furi to Matterhorn station. Difficult to find despite some strong signboards but certainly worth the trip. All meals were great - within the 60 CHF pp price range which is standard in Zermatt whether or not you like it.

A dining experience at the Zum See never disappoints. We never go to Zermatt without stopping by for lunch, but you need to book to be sure of a table. A warm welcome, excellent service and delicious food are guaranteed.
