We really loved the restaurant, the staff (and owner) were both very friendly...and the food was truly great. I started with the Escargots and they were "Amazing"...our main courses were both great, and we did this "flaming" dessert that was truly special.

My husband and I were staying in the hotel attached to this restaurant (Aristella) and tried Spycher on our first night in Zermatt. Dinner starts at 6 and we were advised to make a reservation. We were fortunate to get a last minute table thanks to our hotel staff. The atmosphere is very typical of Zermatt with a deal wooden... More

We are regularly in Zermatt and it was the first experience for us in this restaurant. A real good surprise with excellent meat and wines. The staff is very friendly and you can also easily bring your kids with you. I would just improve the air flow to avoid the grill smell but still a very good adress in Zermatt.

Dear Epicurean F, thank you very much for your appreciated feedback. We are happy that you finally found us with your family. As we perform the flambée show directly at the table unfortunately we cannot avoid the smell of food in the air on a busy night. We look forward to your next visit. More

We had a very good meal and the half bottle of Amarone 2010 with it was excellent. The daily soup was a delicious bouillon with lamb pieces also very good. The snails were taken out of their shells and cooked in a very tasty sauce. The venison with red cabbage and chestnuts was well presented. Some might find the sauce... More

The hearty welcome by the host Mr. Peren and his team made us feel instantly welcome in their cosy alpine restaurant, which was also beautifully decorated. Then arrived the most fantastic chateaubriand we ever had, followed by a sparkling surprise birthday cake. Also our daughter enjoyed her crispy Wienerschnitzel. If we have to complain: what a shame it is not... More

My party was in search of chocolate fondue before leaving Zermatt. We googled Spycher and popped in with no reservation, ski gear and all! We welcomed despite being very underdressed. The servers were incredibly kind and helpful. We had a wonderful last stop on our trip. The fondue was great!
