“Great food and very friendly staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

I just got back from eating and having a couple of brews at Sparkys. I had the sausage in a red whine mushroom sauce and it was outstanding! The service was also very good. We had some great conversations with Sparky and joked with him that he should start serving a chocolate fondue because nobody in Zermatt has it. I highly recommend Sparky's if you are looking for a great meal at a great price in a kick back atmosphere. Keep up the great work!

“Delicious food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

Great place to please everyone. You can pick a salad, an indian dish (I had this and found it wonderful), a thai dish, an American one, etc.. Everyone can find happiness there. On top of this, the owner was very friendly.

“delicious food with welcoming host”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

Sparky's ranked the first at Zermatt ,therefore we went and had a try!
first of all, the restaurant itself didnt look that fancy, so we doubt about it.
However, the host was very welcoming and friendly. the nachos and wings were really good! it was cheaper than the other restaurants that we have eaten in.
would recommend to everyone going to Zermatt!

“Informal atmosphere - tasty food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

The Sparky's has a very informal atmosphere, and it's a great place either for a drink or for a meal. It has space for 20-30 people and it was almost full when I visited the place. The English owner is very welcoming and is both serving the tables and by the bar. The menu is not that big, but the homemade soup was really delicious, as was the grilled peppers. There is free wifi there and the food was served without quickly and hot, just as it should be. I would certainly come back another time.
