“Delicious food with views to die for!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

We hiked up from Zermatt (85mins) to make sure we were hungry hoping that the experience matched the reviews. The restaurant was a delight, staff were very friendly, Max welcomed us and the food was fantastic with spectacular views. We shared a Vrony burger and one of the specials - beef stroganoff. Both were fabulous, but the stroganoff was the winner. Strong intense flavors, melt in the mouth beef and served with delicious polenta and summer vegetables. We finished off with the toberlerone mousse and fruit tart along with a double espresso -the espresso the only slight letdown, though it is unusual to get a typically rich Italian espresso in Switzerland. The bill was Chf119 which is expensive by normal standards, but this is Zermatt and so was actually good value.

“Great experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

We booked a large table for lunch and were not disappointed. You can walk down to the restaurant for non skiers, as some of our party did but I would recommend taking ski poles as the walk is quite steep. The food and atmosphere is fantastic with prices to match, which is what you would expect in such a well known alpine restaurant. The platter of charcuterie was fabulous, J's Truffle risotto delicious and fragrant. Look forward to returning next year.

“A wonderful place to lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013

My family have been to Zermatt for the last 20 plus years and we always stop here for lunch or a quick drink. The food is wonderful and the staff are always pleasant and very efficient. It is such a charming place, with a fantastic view of the Matterhorn. On a sunny afternoon you can just let life pass you by on the terrace with a long cool drink. Heaven on earth!

“Best view and best food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

I just spend all the winter season working in Zermatt. I love going skiing every days off, I went few time during the season and every time I loved more and more this restaurant! It has a wonderful inside but in the sunny day the terrasse is the best you can get! Absolutely the best view! Regarding the food I can say just nice things! My favorite dish was the Vrony Burger, the best I ever had, the bread is so crunchy and fresh, the meat just melt in your mounth and the cabbage and carrots salad inside the burger is the best! I had also the Rösti (average) and the tartare ( really good). Dessert don't miss the Toblerone mousse with passionfruit. I can't wait to go back to Vrony! Always book a table the day before!
