If you have enough of rösti and wienerschnitzle and similar you should try this place. Sits are limited, and you wouldn't expect to taste quite good Asian food interpreted in an alpine way. Not on a budget.

This place definitely has a bit of a younger vibe... Good Indian food as we were looking for something other than Swiss food. Prices were average for Zermatt which are still pretty high. I had soup, two beers, and we had an entree each for 81 CHF. Was full when we left. Overall would recommend as it is cozy and... More

After arriving in Zermatt mid afternoon following a big lunch, my wife, son and I later discovered Sparky's. We had a round of drinks and some excellent small plates - hummus, spring rolls, nachos and a salad - in the friendliest of atmospheres. The owner and waitress were great, suggesting things to do and places to eat during our stay.... More

We were staying close to Sparky's and decided to pop in one night for a look at the desserts. We split a warm apple pie with ice cream and it was sooooo yummy...but better than that was the people in general at Sparky's. So nice and friendly. We wish we would have found you sooner!!!

Stopped over at sparky's for a quick bite early evening/ late afternoon, a week back. The Indian dishes on the menu caught my attention! But we ordered for a platter of finger food (cheese jalapeno poppers, samosa with tamarind chutney, spring rolls and chicken wings). We absolutely loved the platter. Sparky is a cute little place. Very friendly staff and... More

We were the first patrons of the season tonight where the chef and host were very hospitable and the dishes were outstanding. You will not leave here hungry. Great service.

After a hard day in the mountains there is no where better to head for a hearty plateful of home made curry or Thai than Sparky's. We visit Zermatt several times a year and always head there at least once on a weeks visit. Food is tasty and very good value and its a great antidote if you have overdone... More

Sparky's has great food. Bottom line. If you're looking for great tasting food, in an easy environment, at good prices, book a reservation at Sparky's, pull off your down jacket, sit back, watch a ski or mtn bike video on the big screen, chat w friends & family, with a beer and have great tasting meal. We recommend starting w... More

Here is another great place to try. Nothing fancy, Swiss chalet style building on the river bank, slightly outside of the busy resort center. Sparky (or Markus, as his real name once was) runs the joint. He welcomes you as if he had personally invited to you to join his party. You immediately feel like you've known him for ever.... More
