Nice central location, but there are better raclettes and cozier atmospheres to be found in other Zermatt establishments.

The best meal we had in Zermatt. This is first time I've ever ordered a burger outside the US, but did so on a recommendation. Top 5 best burgers I've ever had. My wife had the farm house salad which was also extremely good.

We enjoyed everything the 4 of us ate. I had 1/2 an escargot and bratwurst and my wife had the other half of the escargot and ham and melon. The other couple had the lamb and a dinner salad.

It s not easy to find A place where to eat in Zermatt as there is a lot of offer so I looked on google where to eat the fondue in Zermatt. Sorry trip advisor but the search was not accurate enough to focus on the fondue ! We have been very well received even if it was 5:00 pm... More

Dining at this restaurant is a "must" when visiting Zermatt. It is a family-owned authentic Swiss cuisine restaurant offering excellent fondue and raclette in a wonderful cozy old world charm atmosphere. Reservations are essential unless you are interested in dining late.

This place looks so cosy and traditional that you might think it is touristic. Well, Zermatt is a touristic destination but this restaurant is not a "trap" at all! If you like meat fondue, go for the "Whymperstube" special one: the meat is fillet beaf and you feel the difference! As for all the other meat fondues, it is served... More

We first came here in 1966 and were delighted to see on our 50th. anniversary that the atmosphere had not changed . Still a buzz in the old style room and the traditional dishes like fondue are good and served by cheerfull staff. it can be a good idea to book

Our first experience eating Raclette. After sharing 3 servings we were hooked! The Apfelstrudel was also very good. The service was good even though it was very busy.
