“Nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

Spontaniously we decided to go there. The food was very good although you are not able to choose from a menu. But you can say if you do not like something. Service wasnt the best but ok. It s quite expensive for the value.

“friendly staff, delicious food, warm deco”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

The snowboat is well known for its Apres Ski with good cocktails and a nice/rather sophisticated crowd. Many people do not know what gem is hidden hull of the boat. The restaurant serves a delicious and weekly changing menu, has a good wine list and attentive, friendly and well trained waiters. Changing in the menu are done and replaced by other fine dishes!

“Superb experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

Being a little bit late with the booking, we didn't expect to get a spot. But the person at the phone was very friendly and arranged a table for us. And we were delighted, from start to finish the whole visit was a superb experience. The food was great (fix menu, no à-la-carte), the staff was very friendly and the atmosphere with the live background Jazz music gave it a cosy touch. We can recommend this restaurant without any doubt. Thank you very much for the nice evening!

“Put a little spice in your ski trip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

The snowboat is well known for it's apres ski and as a place to meet everyone who is anyone! but the fine dining downstairs is less well known in fact it's a well kept secret amongst those who are in the know. They serve one set menu similar to a menu 'surprise' but are flexible for those with likes and dislikes.The chef is not afraid to mix his herbs and spices and without a doubt you will experience a refined style of cooking that you won't find elswhere in Zermatt. We enjoyed every course and although this was not our first visit to the Snowboat every menu has been different and varied. This place is well worth a visit, warm cosy surroundings with friendly service and sensible prices.
