“An amazing place like no other.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

This is the place to enjoy my stay in Zermatt. I've been skiing in Zermatt for 5 years but I bet I will never find any better place in Zermatt.
Food they serve is always with worm and kind hospitalities, Service is so friendly. I see some people visit this restaurant had bad experiences tho I totally doubt that.
I highly recommend this place. You would miss the best food and hospitality in Zermatt if you didn't visit this place.

“Jägertee stop”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013 via mobile

The weather in Zermatt was windy today so we stopped here for a drink on the way down the mountain. We sat in the red and white cabin on the terrace and enjoyed our drink. The waitress appeared very grumpy and accused me of using the toilet without buying any food or drink. Her attitude spoilt our otherwise pleasant visit.

Sehr geehrter Gast, es tut uns leid wenn Sie sich falsch verstanden fühlten, aber wir dürfen nach fragen ob die Toilette einfach nur so benutzt wird, wenn Sie versteckt im Strandkorb sassen und es sehr voll war und Sie in diesem Moment leider übersehen wurden , entschuldigen wir uns dafür, wir bedanken uns nachträglich vielmals für zwei Getränke die sie bestellt hatten , merci , weiterhin viel Spass beim bewerten ,Bea Nayer

“Bad attitude”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

Following the good reviews I had read, my wife and I stopped at Rieds on our final run of the day. To say the waitress had a bad attitude would be an understatement, we had intended to have a late lunch and I ordered a beer and tried to order a jug of water, to be told they only did bottled water. Whilst waiting for a menu we noticed the couple next to us had a jug of water, which we had been told was not available!!! We had to ask to see a menu, to which the waitress moved a board to the end of our table without any explanation, we obviously were not suitable for a proper typed menu like the other customers. We decided at that point to give up on the surly unwelcoming restaurant and find somewhere more welcoming. One star for the view.

“Lovely Zermatt gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013 via mobile

Just returned from Zermatt,had two excellent meals in Ried, the first was with a group of 20 people on a snowy day, everyone thought it was fantastic and the service and food was very good. Returned two days later and tried the chocolate pudding, to die for. Great service and excellent food, and lovely views of the Matterhorn at the end of the day. Try the meatloaf. Yum.

“Great Pitstop!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

Restaurant Reid is right on the blue run down from Sunnegga and its a gem of a place, the sun terrace has a great position and view and the Stubli inside is olde worldy quaint and cosy. The food quality is excellent I would especially recommend the Pumpkin Curry Soup and the spare ribs. When in Zermatt we often eat a late lunch here on the way back down and have always been welcomed. The house pinot noir (a Vetroz from memory) is also good quality at a sensible price.
