The building is quite entertaining as it's made to look like an actual boat. Inside it is like a ski lodge meets fine dining atmosphere. I liked it but I only had drinks there so I don't know about the food first-hand. However, the plates I've seen looked delicious.

We had some burgers and drinks in the Snowboat and had a great experience. The burgers were cooked on a barbeque in their outdoor space and freshly made from quality meat. We also tried the crab burger that was well received. We were happy, but if you like your burgers English style (over-done) then ask, meat in Switzerland is usually... More

We chose this place because of the ratings on Trip Advisor, and after looking at the menu. We'd had a more traditional meal the night before in Restaurant Swiss Chalet, on the other side of the village--and wanted something a bit more intercontinental. This worked. I ordered the Chicken Teriyaki Wrap, my wife the Walliser Burger. In the meantime we... More

Definitely the oldest in the restaurant we were still made to feel welcome and we enjoyed not only the food we ate but the service and overall atmosphere and vibe of this venue. Definitely... More

Great food, great service by Kat. Started with guacamole and hummus. Had a very nice Rioja and local Swiss pinot noir. The spring lamb was delicious wonderfully prepared. Very friendly and casual.

We went to Snowboat with friends and were impressed with the quality of the food. The fish and the meat dishes were excellent. The desserts were yummy. Kat was our waitress and we had such fun with her. She was attentive and showed a wicked sense of humour. We thouroughly enjoyed our dinner. A must in Zermatt.
