We found this amazing gem by accident... but we were sure to repeat our "accident" each remaining day of our trip! Nothing beats a light snowfall while sipping a glass of red wine paired with ZumSee's Mille Feuille before skiing back down into town at the end of the day!

We were skiing in Italy and skied over to meet up with some friends here. The food was off the charts, the wine was too. There were 9 of us and we had originally only planned on their being 6 but they were very gracious about making it work. I will warn you that lunch here can get pretty pricey.... More

We had such excellent experiences in the past in Zum See and we definitely wanted to go there this year, especially since last year we didn't make it... We were a bit shocked though by the annex that was built, we think it doesn't match the cosy, intimate atmosphere it used to have. We liked the terrace though, in between... More

We met our friends at Zum See for lunch during the skiing day. It was a wonderful experience. We were lucky to have a clear view, the food was delicious with a true Swiss experience - great food, great venue loaded with fun. Will definitely book again

Delicious lunch with a view of the Matterhorn. We were lucky to have a clear sunny day. Everyone in our group loved their food. Easy walk from Furi gondola.

We hiked up the mountain towards the Matterhorn, and stopped for lunch at Zum See. We had no idea how good the food would be. I had the venison with mushrooms over salad. Tender and delicious! My wife was eating light, and simply had Rosti with vegetables. The chef was very accommodating to her gluten free wishes. We plan to... More

We have been to this amazing mountain restaurant both in the ski season and also during the summer months - it never fails to please. Delicious food and one of the specials of the house is the millefeuille which is always scrumptious. Friendly owners and staff, if you are visiting Zermatt give it a try. 30/40 minutes easy walk up... More

I have been for lunch with my wife. We have loved the place and the service. Food was made with very good quality ingredients but as it was not a sophisticated cuisine which did not require too much preparation we found the final price a bit high.

Beautiful scenery and hidden in old Swiss wooden alpine stable setting a hidden gem, So romantic and cosy, not overdone, but very charming. Excellent service and even better food. I chose for the vegetarian dish and it was heavenly, not a vegatarian myself, however am now tempted! finished with a yummy desert and beautiful wine, done and dusted!

SItting outside on a gorgeous day surrounded by diners from many countries and especially by ice cream eating children would be enough to make this memorable. But there is more: the food is consistently excellent. Try the lamb and rosti, along with a salad from their own garden - you are not going to eat better in Zermatt.
