“Charming Mountain Restaurant, so worth the effort!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013

Zermatt is the Premier League of Mountain Lunches, and Findlerhof got the Gold Medal from the Mrs. Note: while Mr. gives the prize to Fluhalp by a nose for dramatic setting, Mrs. gives it to Findlerhof for charm. The passage through the village of Findeln is adorable, but definitely grab that rope during some of the treacherous parts of the path. Food is stunning, exquisite view of The Mountain, and great sense of accomplishment getting there, and staff absolutely charming.

Reservations a must.

“Wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

I don't usually follow the advice of travel / food articles, because I often think that my high expectations won't be met. Can't say enough about the Findlerhof. The view and location are amazing, the food is outstanding and the service was excellent. We stopped in while skiing and they were willing to squeeze us in for lunch. The lunch was really great and I never cared about how much we paid.

“Best lunch/view/terrace in Zermatt”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013 via mobile

We loved Findlerhof! We had lunch twice on the terrace and the food was as spectacular as the view. Pasta du patron, lamb, steak tartare, sashimi, everything was delicious and just right. Also the way the terraces were on different levels, the place disn't feel crowded at all. It is a bit of a challenge to climb down but definitely worth it. Also the prices of drinks were very reasonable compaired to other much less classy places in Zermatt.

“The best skilunch you can ever have”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013 via mobile

Fidlerhof is definately worth a visit if you are in Zermatt area - remember to book in advance. Located in a picturestic "mountain village" with Matterhorn in background, your expectations are high for the food and it does not disappoint you. Friendly service, great and plentifull portions are excellent and the deserts delightfull (try the suprise desert, definately worthwile).
