Whoops, this is the restaurant beginning with B I meant to review previously! First day on the hill and stopped here. Not very busy. We sat outside. We werent expecting much, however, the food was a very pleasant surprise. I have been around a bit, but i think this is top 10 hill restaurant in the alps. Maybe is was... More

We came here for lunch on a day's skiing over the mountain from Zermatt. We ate in the restaurant downstairs and could not have been more happy. The service was excellent and all of the food was delicious. We ate inside and there views were fantastic out of the huge picture window. Very easy to get back to Zermatt as... More

Basics Zermatt is known for its gourmet mountain restaurants, so when people described the Bontadini Restaurant as “fast food” and a “buffet,” we didn’t know what to expect. But after our lunch there, it was one of the highlights of our trip. What was memorable? Bontadini is, in fact, a self-serve cafeteria, but they have huge portions, homemade egg noodles,... More

People wait here in line until the self service counter opens. That must mean something. We have lunched here twice and both times we have taken the osso bucco with polenta which was delicious. This is not the normal standard self service restaurant. The food is fresh and delicious, highly recommended.

Bontadini's restaurant by the Bontadini lift is a gem! Professional service, a good menu, and changing recommendations from the chef Marco. My favourite was the risotto, and also the osso bucco. The half bottles of wine is also half price of a full bottle. But with the ambience of the restaurant It is easy to skip skiing, and go for... More

The restaurant was busy so we went self-service which was also busy. We enjoyed our food and had great views over the piste from relatively high up. Seems popular with people skiing over from Zermatt so it does get very busy.

Well located between the top two of the run of three chairs to the Swiss border. Lovely large sun terrace, excellent coffee and croissants after the first 2 hours of skiing on wonderful reds before "going over the top" to Zermatt. We only had lunch on one occasion and this was a good filling pasta and 1/4 carafe of red... More

When you're skiing in Zermatt you have to ski over into Italy for lunch and eat here. Nestled into the side on a run and easy to miss but don't. The pasta, at least 4 special options each day, melt in your mouth. No better Italian in all of Zermatt and it only takes a few red runs to get... More

Choose the restaurant side of the food court and do not forget to make the advance reservation. Good choice of meals for all tastes, chef's daily suggestion is worth trying.
