I had an unbelievable time in Brown Cow. Only spending a few nights in Zermatt, I wanted to make sure to get the right spot and Brown Cow was definitely that. A nice burger, great fries and a nice pint. A special shout-out to Elena...who was so friendly and welcoming and really made me feel at home. I loved chatting her and even came back the next day because of the experience I received!More

Six of us went for lunch after reading the reviews on here and I’m so glad we did. Most of us had burgers, I had the Stinky which was epic and we all agreed the fries were the best. Our waiter was super friendly, he...deserves a big shout out. Highly recommended.More

Meh. We were seeking a quiet and cozy lunch. While the service and food was good, our dining experience was overshadowed by a group of 3 young male customers who were loud, disrespectful and rude. They thought it was okay to fart, burp and play...on their phones with no regard for others. When we asked them to quiet down, they used our comments as an opportunity to escalate their obnoxious behavior. We noticed a couple left the restaurant because of them. We requested to move to another part of the restaurant and told the server why we were moving. Her comment? “They’re kids.” Wow. If our food wasn’t ordered, we would have walked away.More

The food and atmosphere is excellent! Everything is reasonably priced alongside the cosiness of the bar, is a good option. Will definitely recommend!

Excellent service, Larissa really went above and beyond with us and especially with our 3 year old daughter. Delicious burgers and fries. Didn't try their drinks but everyone around seemed very pleased with their drafts. Nice ambiance and free wifi also.

The service, food and beer here were all great. 5 stars. They had a great selection of local Zermatt and Swiss Beer. The food was perfect - we are vegetarian and were able to come here twice for lunch. We ordered the creamy tomato soup,...the golden, crispy french fries, the veggie burger, and the salad (warning - the salad is covered in slices of cheese and creamy dressing, in case you are looking for a true green "salad."). Love this spot!More

We visited twice, once for a glass of wine and then again for a quick dinner. Really lovely bar, very Alpine looking but contemporary. Nice atmosphere. The burger was soooooo good - not something I’d normally order but it was recommended by the lady behind...the bar (who incidentally was not rude as some others have said but very efficient with a dry wit!) We overheard an American saying it was the best burger he’d ever had which is praise indeed! Reasonable prices for Zermatt!More

It was the worst 10 minutes experience I ever had.I had just arrived to Zermatt in the middle of the night and wanted to go for a beer with 4 other friends. Once we seated and the waitress approached to us I asked her for...a menu, she refused to give me one. Because of this I told her I wanted the cheapest 0.5 L beer they had, she laughed in my face. Then two of my friends didn’t want to order anything but she told us we had to in order to stay. The bar was practically empty, there were only two more tables occupied. My friends were willing to spend, had she told us nicely, but that was not the case. She didn’t even let us tell her. She told us we should go downstairs to the club but they were probably weren’t going to let us in anyways. The attitude of the waitress since the beginning intended to make me and friends uncomfortable. So much so, it was enough for us to want to leave. We left and didn’t order anything. Terrible customer service.More

We walked by another night during happy hour time and it was too crowded and we had our kids with us so we didn't go in. If you mean happy hour specials like reduced prices during a set couple of hours I'm not sure.

You should call them. You are able to find details in the web. Try Brown Cow Pub Zermatt.

I don't think there would be room in there to even slide that many tables together.
