What a great spot for lunch and an even better location for people watching. Located on the main street of Zermatt, grab a high-top table in the front of the restaurant and enjoy watching the parade of people go by while you wait for your meal to be delivered. We ordered the two of the daily specials - club sandwich... More

We had 2 full days in Zermatt and for both lunches, we settled at Brown Cow. First day, we shared a Chicken Burger & Minestrone soup - the side fries which came with the burger was good but wouldn't recommend the Minestrone soup. Second day, we had the Cordon Bleu Chicken & Toast Matterhorn - great combi for sharing. The... More

Good value and good food. We got the zermatter burger and the chicken cordon bleu with fries and salad. Both were delicious. Got a cider and a beer and total price came to 50 francs. You'll be hard pushed to find other places in Zermatt this reasonably priced for food. We plan to return before the end of our trip... More

Everyone always has a favourite burger place that sticks in their mind. This is mine! Great taste. served with perfect fries crispy outside and soft middle and an interesting side salad. I recommend the stinky burger and the swiss burger. Mmmmmm

Variety of menu , reasonable price for Zermatt, quick service and food are tasty too. It seems this place is busy all the time so make sure you go there early for dinner.

The food was good pub food. Prices were OK. The location is right on the main street, so lots of traffic, and the pub tends to be very busy. Good for a quick, casual meal.

The high prices of food in Switzerland can be shocking, so it was fantastic to find a place that served food at reasonable prices that was also yummy! We got the nachos (actually Doritos covered with cheese) and a cheeseburger. Overall, a great meal and I really appreciated the prices!!

Tasty and great value! Good range of burgers and other pub type food. Busy place and I can see why. Not only was the food great but it was the cheapest place I've seen in Switzerland on my whole trip from zurich to grindewald and zermatt. Cant go wrong. Pub type atmosphere so not the place for a fancy restaurant... More

Good simple pub fare and beers. Nothing fancy and very affordable by Zermatt standards. Friendly service too.
