Classic Zermatt restaurant worth the time it takes to walk there. Great food, service and overall experience; I'd go back.

Zum See has it all. Stunning views, good food, friendly service and easily accessible for skiers and walkers alike. A great venue for meeting up for lunch before either walking back to town or hitting the slopes.

We hadn't booked a table at Zum See but decided to chance it. And luckily we did! A delightful Norwegian couple offered us 2 spare seats at their table and we enjoyed a delicious lunch with fabulous company! Zum See is a must visit restaurant for lunch in Zermatt. Very good wine list to suit all tastes and budgets.

Zum See is nicely located at the end of the slopes so it is easily accessible both for skiers and for walkers. The walk from town is fairly easy, under one hour and is doable ever with a baby on your back! The food was very high quality but quite expensive, same rate as some of the other finer slope... More

A fabulous setting and really lovely staff make you feel extremely welcome her. The food is very good without being anything exceptional, but a lovely experience.

I have been to the Zum See several times over the years. It is a lovely little traditional log cabin restaurant on the run down from the Klien Matterhorn into Zermatt. You can either sit inside or outside and the food is sensational and varied and the wine list is exceptional (although can be a little eye watering). The food... More

We loved this restaurant. Next to the lower slopes below Furi we enjoyed wonderful calves liver and Rosti basking in the sunshine looked after by charming staff. Highly recommend.

I was advised to book Zum See at least a couple of weeks prior to my ski trip which turned out to be excellent advice as it gets very booked up. Fourteen of us had a variety of two and three course lunches with wine all of which was served with charming efficiency. I always like to test a new... More

We had lunch at Restaurant Zum See recently. We were a large group but were very well accommodated (we did book). The service was adequate (they were very busy) and the food was lovely. It has a warm atmosphere and staff are very friendly. If I happened to ski past there again, I will definitely stop for a bite!

This took a little bit of getting too but the huge asparagus, goulash, swiss style rostis and seafood were great as was the wine that washed it all down. And when your all done its a short run down back to the taxis waiting to run you back into Zermatt. Well worth a visit
