Stood outside waiting for a table and the waiter said he would be with us soon. Waited for 10 minutes and then left. Went to the next Italian restuarant further up the road, great service, pizza and salad.

Had dinner here and both the food and service was great!! I had the barley soup & raclette and my husband had the lamb loin special. The special was a big meal so great value and the lamb was cooked perfectly.

We were craving for pizza and a little poor from Swiss crazily-expensive food on Day 3. The restaurants serves a really big thin-crusted pizza good enough to share among two small eaters. I would recommend here for the pizzas! We visited the restaurant around 1pm and the restaurant was slightly occupied.

Came in on the New Years Eve and get a table without booking. Service was quick and meal very tasty. Returned day after on the New Year and get the same experience. Very happy. On my list for next Zermatt visit.

Been twice to eat there, lunch and dinner. Both times were really nice. The food served is really good, soups, main dishes, pizzas. A lot of waiters so pretty fast lead times. Prices are decent, especially for Zermatt. And they also have a special daily menu, one for lunch one for dinner. Again, would definetely recommend.

We stopped in mid-afternoon, after walking around the village and doing some shopping, to order some drinks and people watch from the outdoor patio. The server (from Spain) was very friendly and attentive and let us know immediately that the kitchen was closed until dinner. We had some wine and beer based on his recommendations, both of which were exactly... More

We sat on the patio & didn't actually ever go inside but were seated right away, the poor server was running around like crazy, sweating even (and it was cool... More

Good location in the centre of Zermatt. We ate on the balcony and the waiter put on the heater which was nice. It was very quiet and, although only 8.30pm, we felt a bit forgotten about so the service was not very attentive. The food (pizza and spaghetti) were OK and, although pricey, is what you would expect to pay... More

We liked the outdoor seating and the varied menu items. They offered 2 preset lunch meals on their menu, which two of us ordered. The food was tasty and the setting very nice.
