We were recommended by a friend to visit the restaurant, and booked a table for lunch at 14:00h. When we arrived the restaurant was full both inside and out, a good sign. The staff were busy but very professional and quickly found our booking and table, one of the outside tables under the canapy. Very bustling filled with skiers taking... More

This is our favourite restaurant on the slopes in Zermatt. Beautiful quaint location in the valley up to Furi, with the lovely old restaurant building set amongst small old wooden cow sheds and studios. Highly recommended for Rosti, calves liver, fish soup and the Napoleon dessert.

If you are seeking out that special mountain lunch in classic atmosphere with great wine Zum Zee must tick all the boxes. Marcus and the staff are first class, the food amazing accompanied by authentic Swiss chalet setting around a beautiful courtyard. Totally recommend the fish soup with saffron and anything from the extensive wine list. ⛷😎🍾🍷🥂 One of our... More

The food was very good, without forgetting the Mille feuille which is a specialty. However, it is overrated and pricey compared to what you can get elsewhere in Zermatt. I always enjoy the skiing down to town from the restaurant

We have been coming to this restaurant for 20+ years & the food, service & cosistency remains the same as ever. From the smallest of kitchens come culinary masterpieces. Particularly recommend sweetbreads, liver, lamb & prawns, but simple rosti & omelette is equally well received. The famous creme schnitte has to be the best pudding in the Alps - go.........!!

For many years our favourite lunch spot on the mountain. Food never disappoints and this visit was no exception. High quality salads and fantastic home made pasta. It's getting busier and I am not a fan of the extension, but I guess it would be more difficult to get a table without this. It's also getting pricier every year. I... More

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
