Just about as close to heaven as you could get if you love a good view, great food, Great service, and mountain air and breezes. Everything is well thought out here. The furniture even welcomes you. There are wooden lounge chairs with throws and pillows pointed toward the Matterhorn. After a large meal, we napped for about an hour in... More

Visited Chez Vrony for lunch with some friends when we were hiking. We had made a reservation, which might be needed. We had a nice hamburger lunch. Very tasty! And an excellent view. Good service! Somewhat pricy.

This was my first time in Zermatt and I've heard from several people that I should go to Chez Vrony for lunch. And they were right! It was beautiful. It's about 20 minutes to hike down from Sunnegga station, an easy walk in my opinion (but that obviously depends on your shape also) and very scenic. I got seated immediately... More

We stopped at Chez Vrony to refuel during a mountain bike downhill from Gornergrat down to Zermatt. This is the place to stop: perfect view of the Matterhorn on a sunny clear day, comfortable seating, great service by the staff and excellent food. We were greeted into the restaurant as if we were old friends coming back and the service... More

The place is absolutely incredible. You would think the place is number 1 because of the amazing view...and it's more than just the amazing view. You're on one of the most incredible hikes of your life...and you stop and this place...and have this amazing meal. We were just speechless. The staff were great...what a memory. Find a blue sky day... More

Staggeringly beautiful views. Friendly and laid back, yet professional and efficient service. And high quality cooking to back it all up. (The pork chop with potato salad was fabulous - i didn't think it was possible to make something so simple so good). This is a great place that deserves all its accolades.

We first went up to Chez Vroney when the children were 7 months and 3 years 7 months old on backpacks in 1990 and we visit each time we come to Zermatt. This year the whole family returns. The hike starts in Winklematten about 15 minutes above the main village and while the trail is fairly steep all of the... More

We were lucky enough to have great weather the day we went up the Gornergrat and then walked to Chez Vrony. Arrived at the restaurant at 1.00 on a hot day and after walking from Rifflelap through the forest. Waitresses were very friendly and service was very prompt. Had a glass of bubbles and a beer on the terrace before... More

This is a special place. I admit, we're from the plains of Nebraska in the U.S., so beef steak and potatoes, and for the most part, uninspiring views, are standard fare, (we have other inspiring qualities here, for sure), but this place is worth trying no matter where you come from, because the menu is creative and inspiring, and the...
