“Crème de la crème”
Reviewed February 13, 2013

One of the best mountain restaurants of zermatt which offers a panaromic view of the matterhorn due to its perfect location. To top it up It has great terraces, very well prepared choice of dishes and great desserts. The service is great. A truly swiss made.

PS: don't forget to réserve in advance and have lots of money in your Wallet Coz quality comes with a price :)

“The best food on any ski mountain”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

When an American comes to ski in Europe the biggest difference is not only the many lifts on the mountain but the restaurants. While skiing in Zermatt we had the opportunity to experience lunch that will be remembered always.
We had the pleasure of dining at Findlerhof sharing great wine and a multi course lunch that takes at least 1 1/2 hours. We started with the best mussels I have ever tasted. Simple white wine and thin sliced chilies, coat the small sweet mussels. You could also have them with thin pasta as a main course. Then came a veal chop covered with pink peppercorns and fresh herbs.
I shared a quiche like no other, light, with just the right mix of onions and bacon and a small fresh side salad.
The two owners kept all of the guests happy rushing around serving bottles of wine and beer making sure that each plate was served hot and presented to those waiting like you were the only person in the room.
When you think you can't hold another bite the dessert arrives surrounded with beautiful fresh berries. Remember you are at 8000+ feet and have to ski down to the village.
Don't miss this wonderful experience.
Love Franz, the owners, deer skin pants and vest.

“My fave for lunch”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

Findlerhof is a great restaurant tucked away in the small hamlet of Findlen. Not the easiest place to find but well worth the search.

“Quaint and great service/Food”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

In a quaint little area. The restaurant was warm, cosy and rustic. Wonderful food, drinks and impeccable service. Make a reservation to get a good table. We went twice in 4 days.

“Simply the best in Findeln!”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

Georgeous view of the Matterhorn, nice Terrace, great atmosphere, but most importantly: Fantastic food (must have is the veal cutlet) and excellent wine-list. Extremely busy place and despite the crowd and the sometimes a bit chaotic scenery, the service staff seems to be always in a good mood and makes your stay a memorable experience.
