Authentic Swiss food in a lovely atmosphere. Excellent service. Pricey, but worth it! Don't forget to try the fondue. The chocolate fondue for dessert is a must!

We had a great evening, with wonderful service and a very tasty fondue meal. The place is very cozy and the perfect atmosphere after a good day skiing in Zermatt.

We came here with our two young kids and it was a great experience. They had colored pencils, coloring sheet and a kids menu to entertain/feed the kids. We had the cheese fondue and the venison saddle for 2 and it was all absolutely delicious. I am not even a fan of venison and actually really liked it. The service... More

We wanted to have a good time in a sort of traditional place and end up in this restaurant. The fondue was good, salad excellent. A really nice service in a small place that has the same ambiance as an old chalet. A bit pricy for what you have but a good spirit.

We went there for a dinner with friends during our ski trip. The lamb was terrific and melted in my mouth and the desert was excellent as well. The service was a bit slow, but that's expected since they had a full house. All over all I strongly recommend the place.

Great restaurant in the basement of the Hotel Julen. Great to see them cooking the meat and melting the cheese right in front of you. Would go back.

Ordered portion raclette and a grilled lamb loin. Raclette is a must try, especially for cheese lovers! We requested for the lamb loin to be shared and they lovingly portioned for us into 2 servings, so we can enjoy the food with no hassle. The lamb was succulent and the potato gratin side was amazing! Had the warm chocolate cake... More

We were sent here by the front desk clerk at Firefly when we said we wanted to make sure we tried Raclette in Valais and where would be the best in town, he set the res. for us. When we arrived we were hit with the spicy aroma of their pine wood for roasting and the scent of good food.... More
