I had a wonderful meal here. Plenty of choice on the menu, prompt service, and an Alpenhorn recital from the owner as well. What a treat!

We came here on a Thursday night after getting back to Zermatt from a 5 hour hike and a late start to dinner considerations. We didn't arrive at Restaurant Spycher until about 940PM and weren't optimistic about our chances of getting a table. But the server who greeted us was friendly and seated us at the bar while specially preparing... More

I had an aweful ride from Zürich to Zermatt with the Glasier Express- I dont recommend to waist time or money on it. After a 6 hour ride and poor service (in first class!!!) I quickly looked up the recommended restaurants in Zermatt. The moment I read - U must try the duck! I was bought. The moment I took... More

We enjoyed the atmosphere at the Spycher in Zermatt. The room is cozy and filled with the smells of table side flambee'd meat and brandy. Our mixed salad was ordinary compared to the highly recommended coconut soup. For a main course, I had entrecôte which was a thin, uninspired offering but easily drowned in the nice Bernaise sauce. The chocolate... More

Dear Trepidation1 Thank you for your time to let us know your impressions. We are happy that you liked the ambiance of our restaurant. Unfortunately, we did not meet your expectations, but as you said, we are an "old world restaurant", which means for us traditional kitchen with some international influences. More

The duck with honey sauce was delicious and highly recommended. I thought it may have been too sweet, however the flavour was balanced well. The restaurant has a cosy feel to it, and the staff were professional and friendly. The only downside was that my partner noted that there was some debris floating in his wine. However, this did not... More

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.
