“Food & Atmosphere is very good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

We had recently a great evening in the Restaurant with some friends. We choose the 4 course Menue and enjoyed different sort of food from the card. We'd love to have a diversity of wine with the food and not only one bottle for everything. They offered us serving a different wine to each course, which was lovely.
If you like good food in a lovely atmosphere, here you go.

“Terrible service, ok food although over priced, oh and you get to eat with dogs.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

We had heard ok reviews of this restaurant and indeed advanced along the pretty walk to the establishment with quiet confidence. The restaurant on entry has a modern feel and looks well thought through architecturally. On being placed as a couple in a pretty area under a window (which was so drafty we resorted to putting scarfs on) we placed our order with upbeat stoicism and were then forgotten about ...... Bar one apology (as we were about to leave) it's coming (that is the starter) for one whole hour. The food on arrival from a super unhelpful waiter was ok and credit is due here. At this point a couple with a very large Dog complete with drooling mouth, baying eyes and longing looks for food all over the restaurant (including directly at us a mere 1 meter away) were placed in what could be termed the best seated area of the restaurant. They proceeded to serve the dog water, faster than serve the customers and some time later we ate our main meal happy that, said dog watched every mouthful we took while being mopped at the mouth by its owners. There was no customer thought by way of recompense at all from the staff. Main course was ok in terms of food quality and that must be noted. Unfortunately, in conclusion very poor service, poor ambience, very costly (more so than food deserved) and we are v aware of Swiss prices, and dreadful that you have to eat your food slower than the dogs who watch you. All in all woof , not to be visited steer well clear.

“Absolutely Perfect!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

We ate here on our first night in Zermatt and had an excellent gourmet meal!! In addition to the delicious cuisine, the meal had a perfect pace and the staff - including the very present chef/owner - were attentive and friendly. In fact, it was so perfect, we ate at Sonnenmatten again on New Years Eve, when we enjoyed an even more exquisite meal. This is, by far, the best restaurant in Zermatt?

“Good food, good service, close to our hotel (Matthiol)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

From the outside it looks unlikely; lots of remodelling (in September 2012), but the owner and waitress were super helpful and the food was excellent.

“Good food cold ambiance”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

I ate here twice in the last week. The food was excellent and the service was for the most part good. However the atmosphere was always edgy as though the waiter was doing us a favour by serving us. Not the most friendly environment!
