Findlerhof was recommended to us twice so for that reason, we gave it the highly prized allocation of "Last Lunch In Zermatt", and it did not disappoint. We arrived late and without a booking (sacrilege...) but luckily found a little corner in the sunshine with blankets (apparently it was one of the coldest Marches ever, that day topped -25 C). The service was a little slow but we almost expected that considering the insane popularity of this mountain hideout.
The rosti was delicious, as was the wine. If only we'd arrived earlier so we could be as merry as the rest of the diners!
Findlerhof, it seems, is an institution and one not to be missed. Make sure you hold on to the rope - on the way down you'll probably fall on your behind and on the way up you might just face plant...!
