Location and food amazing. Service surprisingly slow on our last visit (and it was not even busy!). But this being Findlerhof, we still left happy. You cannot go wrong here. In winter, make sure to book a table beforehand! To get there, you have several options. You can walk from Zermatt (uphill!) or you can take the Sunegga funicular and... More

Findlerhof has the greatest views I have ever experienced at an eatery! The men in my group hiked almost an hour to enjoy the restaurant, while the ladies took the tram to the top of the mountain and hiked down to Findlerhof. The hike was worth it. The view of the Matterhorn could not have been more clear! The food... More

Charming mountain restaurant in a prime location in Findeln above Zermatt. Friendly staff, extensive list of perfectly prepared food. Reservation is recommended and please be advised that other people can be put at the table, but that's on the mountain never boring! One of the recommended restaurants in Zermatt. Not cheap, but that Word well once ...

Dined here on a lovely clear day and absolutely appreciated the view. Hosts Franz and Heidi were nice, and the food / wine were good. Findlerhof fills up on a sunny day, so good to make reservations in advance. My only critique would be the food took a very long time prior to arrival. Overall, another lovely place and choice...

About 35mins walk from Sunnegga Station and you will see Findlerhof. There are signages from the station so no issue in finding this place. We had rosti and steak; both were delicious. Rosti was a little on the salty side though. Be prepared to work your legs after your meal (the walk back is a little steep). Do note the... More

We chose this restaurant to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary. We had walked quite a way and were delighted with our meal. We both chose the Lamb and it was fabulous. I particular enjoyed the salad that accompanied it. We both had a dessert and they were stunning. The service was relaxed while attentive and the setting on the terrace was... More

Don't make the mistake the people at the next table did, and show up with only a few francs in your pocket. Franz and Heidi's Findlerhof is the ideal place to spend a lazy afternoon, the wine list calling you back to sample more bits, which always seem to taste better and go down easier in this idyllic spot. Not... More

The restaurant was recommended to us by friends and we were not disappointed. We sat outside on the terrace with great view to the Matterhorn and surrounding mountains. This setting was was matched by the exceptionally great food and vine and we all loved it. We tried some local dishes and were impressed by the variety and the quality of... More
