We had been up viewing the Matterhorn all morning when a friend recommended we stop for lunch at this lovely little restaurant on our way down the mountain. When you get off the train, there is a short walk along a nice trail to get to the terrace of Alphitta. Dave greeted us the moment we stepped onto the terrace and sat us at a table where we were taken in by the spectacular view of the Matterhorn. This location could not be more beautiful. The restaurant sits at the base of the Matterhorn in the middle of a meadow - simply breathtaking! After taking in the view and ordering drinks, we ordered a shredded beef burger with some salad and potatoes. It was all excellent and fit the bill for hungry tourists.
The food and wine were all excellent but what makes this place so special are the owners - Dave and Tanya. They welcomed us with easy warm smiles that made us feel right at home. They also never rushed us - a few of us really had a hard time leaving this beautiful place and we ended up staying till almost 4 PM! Dave and Tanya assured us we could stay as long as we like and we did! I am convinced there is no more beautiful place in the world. Many thanks to Dave and Tanya for allowing us to share the beauty you surround yourself with every day. If we ever find ourselves back in Switzerland, this will be the first place we visit!
