For the past 4 years, we have visited Snowboat during our annual August visit to Zermatt. It's always been a treat as the salads were both artistically inspiring and fantastic tasting. As such, we have recommended Snowboat. Upon returning to Snowboat last week...we need to reconsider our level of enthusiasm. The menu has become bloated along with the food. Prior... More

I come to Zermatt frequently and usually focus on the food on the mountain instead of the village as I think it is better. I had not been to Snowboat before but it was highly recommended. It was an easy to order from menu and the food as tasty. I would definitely go back.

Seven of us had dinner here July 2016. Service and food were both wonderful! All seven of us enjoyed a delicious meal. Had no trouble with a walk-in sit down for dinner, but we were early (around 5pm). Would definitely eat here again.

Friendly service, really good food with quality ingredients; salads are well prepared and fresh and the meats are top notch. Quality background music and some hauntingly good cocktails. Recommend for just cocktails, meal, nightcap or a whole evening.

Visited with husband and teenagers. Waitress (Kat?) was lovely, really helpful with the menu and nice with the kids. Food was freshly cooked and tasty.

In the centre of Zermatt this restaurant true its name reminds of a boat incl an upper deck. Lovely English girl Cat is serving nice Dutch beer, excellent quessadilas, steak and kez lime cake. Funk music in background makes this place special.

We spent a couple of evenings here and very much enjoyed the Veuve Clicquot champagne - my favourite!! Staff were chatty and friendly and the atmosphere was great for a chilled out evening after a hard days walking.

We ate two lunches in a row at Snowboat. Their salads were fresh, unique and completely delicious. We completely enjoyed everything we ate there. They have very fun cocktails. The location is nice to sit inside/outside and watch the Zermatt people walk and bike by. Would definitely love to go back.

It was not always easy to find good, healthy food in Switzerland, especially if you were looking for something vegetarian (or even more difficult, vegan). The food at Snowboat was therefore a treat -- fresh, well-prepared salads and plenty more. The price was steep, even by Zermatt standards, but we were grateful for the fresh ingredients and creative recipes.
