Amazing location

Favorite place in Zermatt! Hike down mountain to it or up from town of Zermatt. Setting is from another time. Outside on a sunny day with a view of Matterhorn.😃 Food & staff excellent. Specialist in desserts!

We have eaten here in the past and were looking forward to a nice meal after a long walk. People serving ignored us for 10 minutes as they were very busy but just to acknowledge our presence would have been nice. then the owner came and was extremely rude, so we got up and went. I am afraid when you... More

We hiked up to Zum See on a beautiful day in mid-June. They had just re-opened, so the menu was still a bit limited, but very good. I had soup and wine and my husband had an omelette and a Swiss beer. We finished with some of that excellent coffee we had all over Switzerland (boy, do I wish I... More

We included the Zum See restaurant in two of our day walks from Zermatt just so we could sample their excellent food again and of course enjoy the embience of a 500 year old Hamlet in the beautiful Swiss alps.

I visited Zum See several years ago and was immensely disappointed. I am now correcting that impression. It has changed in all the ways it needed to to make it an excellent summer and winter lunch destination. Not probably, but definitely the best in Zermatt. Where there was a three-sitting lunch approach, that has been done away with and only... More

I am serious, this is my favourite restaurant in either summer or winter. The food, ambiance, views, service and drinks are all fantastic, more so on a sunny day outside on the patio. Go now!... Even if you have been before- always gets better with each visit.

We had main on the special menu and they were perfect. The vegetables was super fresh and tasty as they said they are... More

We arrived without a reservation and they found an outside table for us. Most tables are for 4 or 6 so if you have a smaller group expect to share a table - perhaps even with a smoker. Expect attitude from the servers if you take a table at lunch time and do not order food. We ordered salad, Rosti,... More
