We didn't have lunch here but we tried the apple pie with vanilla sauce and it was really mouth watering! Even if you come for lunch or just for a coffee the apple pie is really delicious, not very sweet and perfectly cooked. The views during a sunny day are awe-inspiring so it really worths the effort to get here.

The gods were smiling the day we visited Gornergrat the views were breathtaking the sun warm and skies clear.My husband and I dined on the terrace and we just sat there for ages not saying anything and simply being overawed by the 12 mountains surrounding us and the majestic Matterhorn beaming just for us.:) We shared fondue because what else...

Sunny, clear day so visiting Gornegrat was quite popular that day. Still only had to wait couple of minutes and they found us a nice table indoors. Pretty good meal and great service.

It was a sunny, clear day in Gornergrat so the entire place was very crowded. We wanted to sit outside but found that there were no more available tables, so we sat inside next to the window. From here, there were magnificent views of the area. The restaurant was a little understaffed but they tried their very best. Food was... More

we had Rossi with bratwurst and the Rosti was a bit dry. When the lovely waitress brought the bill,she asks if everything was ok and I mentioned the Rosti. She quickly took the bill back, came back with one meal credited. Wow wow wow, very impressive. Thank you for the great service

We love the food and the service at this restaurant at Kulmhotel Gornergrat. The presto pasta was beautiful done, salad and mushroom pie were delicious! It has an awesome view of the Alps and Matterhorn and very popular. Reservation is recommended to secure good seats. Memorable outing for us - view and dinning experience!

We took the train up to Gornergrat and after we spend time enjoying the incredible views, we decided to sit on the terrace to have lunch and soak in the incredible scenery. It was a warm and clear day. We enjoyed fondue and a platter of local preserved meats and cheeses. The food was good but recommend more for the... More

I stayed at the Kulmhotel overnight on Gornergrat so my stay included dinner and breakfast. Dinner included a wonderful salad buffet, soup, main course, and a dessert. There are two options to choose from for the main course as well. All of the dishes were excellent and timed beautifully to enjoy your meal as the sun sets and the stars... More

The views from the Gornergrat are legendary and we decided to go up there to have lunch and enjoy the views and take some photos. We found a table on the terrace of the Vis à Vis restaurant and were delighted with the service AND the food. Our waitress, a charming blonde woman with a delightful smile, was attentive even...

We went up to Gornergrat for a day trip to see the Matterhorn. As it was already late, we decided to stay for lunch at vis-a-vis. We waited for 5 minutes at the entrance and all the waiters/waitresses ignored us. Finally we decided to head up to the 2nd level as we noticed everyone else doing the same. We sat... More
