Nice bar with restaurant and good food

We eat downstairs the the restaurant I think the food may be the same as upstairs. Although the tuna was a little pink for my preference, they was more than happy to cook a little more and was perfect not cremated when brought back and although my dad was keen on the dressing on the salad, my mum... read more

I've passed this place a number of times but thought it was only a bar. Come to find out that there is a restaurant in the bottom of the building. It accommodated our large group of 12 people flawlessly! We had a mixture of starters and mains ranging from fish to steak. Everyone agreed that the food was delish and... More

Had a great meal and overall experience was excellent. We were lucky to have Kat as our server. The wine soup is worth the trip. Fresh fish flown in daily to Geneva, and brought to Zermatt. Great comfortable atmosphere.

Nice bar close to the bottom of the runs so handy for a drink before heading home (both green and red buses stop nearby). Good selection of cocktails, beers and more plus very tasty chicken satay if you fancy a nibble....there is a restaurant downstairs (The Yacht Club).

The ambiance, the beef starter and Cat's wonderful style and service caused us to come back for a second evening in a week. Look forward to returning again.

My husband and I ate here last week and we are so happy that we did. To start I had the Beef Medalion, which was divine, my husband had the Scallops, also amazing. Then the lamb shank with pumpkin risotto and the Salmon Teryaki, both dishes cooked to perfection, superb. Then we went upstairs and had a few after dinner... More

Anywhere that sets up a Yacht Club themed bar and restaurant at 1600m altitude needs to have some style/attitude to pull it off. Snowboat is a great Bar experience after you come off the slopes and before you head out for dinner. Always seems to be buzzing and with a great soundtrack (either background or live DJ) . Time flies... More

The ground floor is a bar and the restaurant was underground. It was decorated like inside of a boat. The seafood was very fresh and reasonably priced. Service was excellent. The drinks served in the bar is also available in the restaurant.

We went here our first night in Zermatt. Wasn't sure what to think as we entered a bar.. but the restaurant was downstairs. It was so quaint. The staff was great - they have fabulous recommendations on the food and wine. The pasta with clams was off the charts delicious!!!

This place has great atmosphere and is great place to go after a hectic day on the slopes to relax and enjoy a beer or two or even a cocktail. Great too when the weather is sunny where you can sit on the top and take in a few rays
