We had typical food from the area and it was all excellent. The venue is stunning inside and outside. The service was really friendly and efficient too.

Stayed on the top floor of the building. Beautiful suites. Memories that will last a lifetime waking up to the famous Swiss mountains & snow capped roofs. To top it off, they have a fantastic restaurant for if you arrive at night. Perfect. The suites include a good bottle of white wine & fresh croissants served delivered to your door... More

Excellent! Came upon this place during an afternoon of enjoying Zermatt. Visited with the owners while enjoying an afternoon white wine. Had such a pleasant visit we decided to return for dinner. Perfect decision.

We have been there several times recently and the food is always very good with a very friendly staff. In the evening the menu is very limited in the choice and we would wish to have more choice. Always happy to go there, in summer time a real classic with the best outside barbecue in Zermatt.

Hot chocolate (Schoggi) was served in a novel way for us. The milk was boiled and then brought to our table with a jar full of very good quality chocolate powder. We were then free to add however many teaspoons of the powder that was to our taste. We had a rhubarb pie and an apricot pie to go with... More

Our hotel recommended this restaurant, which was nearby and an easy walk. We were made very welcome in the cosy dining room, and the set menu was suggested by the waitress. We decided not to have the pasta course, and would have struggled to manage everything else if we had had it. The soup and salad we shared for starters... More

My wife and I stumbled upon this gem walking through the upper part of town and gave it a whirl. The set menu was fantastic- not having to choose your dishes can be a relief. The first night was a Tuesday and we were able to get a table without a reservation. They told us for weekends a reservation was... More

Me and my family found this restaurant three years ago, since than every year our first and last evening in Zermatt was spent in Sonnnatten Restaurant! In the evening they have dinner package (this year for 59 Swiss francs) usually soup or salads, pasta, main dish and, if you still have place, some desert. If you want you can take... More

The restaurant is lovely, the food superb - the four course set menu for 59 swiss francs is extremely good value for money. Delicious salad, followed by pasta, beef and then pudding. All prepared/cooked extremely well and the atmosphere is really nice. Our wine was a little cold and we asked for a second bottle to be brought up......our waitress... More

We had dinner at Sonnmatten with our family and we were impressed with this restaurant. Martin our waiter was one of the best we have had the pleasure to be served by. He suggested some great wines and kept us entertained all night. The food was fresh prepared very well. On a whole a very enjoyable evening and would recommend... More
