“Don't judge a book by its cover!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

We spent our last evening of three in Zematt and it was unexpectedly the best !!
Having walked passed the boat shaped restaurant earlier in the day, i had dismissed it as place to eat. But was very surprised to hear from my friend it had been rated 4th best restaurant in town on trip advisor so we decided to give it a try !! It turned out to be a great evening. Fantastic service, Food amazing and for Zemoney price's great value. Great music ! Loved it and its a hidden treasure.

“Absolutely tasty food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

From the outside, this place just looks like a bar to hang out. However we decided to have dinner and boy, were we amazed. One of us had the spicy burger and the other the spare ribs and omega 3 salad. The salad dressing and the shrimps in the salad were awesome, the spare ribs sauce tasted like it just came out of the smoker and the meat was so soft and juicy. The spicy burger was scrumptous! Staff is very friendly and the atmosphere is laid back and comfortable. We couldn't believe such good food came from such a small kitchen, but still telling our friends about it. If you are in Zermatt, you have to eat here!

“Good food & friendly staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

I've always known the Snowboat as a lively après ski bar but this summer I dined here a couple of times during our 5 night stay. Limited menu but everything we tried was of the highest quality and a little different to the norm. All the staff here are really friendly.
