Very nice for a quick lunch when out hiking. We got pasta and it was good. We enjoyed the fantastic views.

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.

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

We visited Findlerhof in September of 2015, so my review is tardy. However, I'd rather be late than never put in a good word for a mountain restaurant that was a delight! It was on my list of "must do's" because of all the rave reviews on Tripadvisor. The funny thing was that I pride myself on my well-planned itinerary... More

This is our favorite on-Mountain restaurant in the world. We have skied out west, Aspen, Vail, Park City, Jackson Hole, etc... and most of Europe. We have been to Michelin rated restaurants and still this is our favorite. We are addicted to the Spaghetti Antonio. Its hard to force yourself to order something else.....we only did once...lol... The only drawback... More

Absolutely stunning view, great atmosphere and delicious food. my recommendations: tartare, Rossini steak, and foie gras with apples as a starter. Have been visiting this restaurant for over 5 years and the quality of the dishes is perfect. Must visit in Zermatt!

OK - so I was given a choice - Chez Vrony or Findlerhof....the upside is that half the ski resort was not accessible due to high winds so I managed to go to both! Lucky me! If I could only go to one of these again, which would I choose. It's a hard choice as they are both different. But... More

Really lovely traditional restaurant for lunch - fantastic views over the mountains and great food - I had one of their specialities which was a local quiche. The service was very slow - we were a party of 8 and our food came out at different times which was a bit of a pain. One thing to note - the... More

This is the best restaurant on the hill. There is a solid consensus that of the 50 restaurants on the hill only one other has comparable food. If you want the best unobstructed view of the Matterhorn and what really is a hidden spot away from a typical tourist volume, this is it. You must not miss a stop here... More
