Had the most amazing spearibs in a while! Nice atmosphere, pleasant service. The dishes, however, took ages to arrive. We counted 40 long minutes from ordering to serving. And this was at a time the place was only half full.

We were in the restaurant twice. First time the burgers were awesome! Wine was also very good, and we really admired nice waitress who was helpful, friendly and cheerful. 2 days later we orders spare ribs and tartar beef. It was fine but no comparison to burgers. Fortunately the same joyful waitress and same good wine "primitivo" made our evening.... More

From the minute we stepped into this restaurant we should have guessed how bad it would be. Instead of welcoming us, we were asked if we wanted "a real breakfast or just coffee". Should have stepped out straight away. We said we were really hungry so we asked for the menu. They brought us a list which only included omelette... More

Really hit the spot after a morning of awesome skiing. considering we spent £30 each on a burger, chips and beer, it shouldn't have been too much to fill our water bottles with tap water. Instead they told us we had to fill our bottles in the toilet!

First experience having reindeer meat and it is delicious. The meat prepared by the chef was just right and it is tender and the fish I had was delicious. You can also order side dishes and we got ourselves Alaska potatoes, noodles, french dressing salad and mixed vegetables. A wonderful dinner on our first night in Zermatt.

This is a lovely, cosy, warm restaurant, where the service is second to none, and the food is very, very good. There is a good selection of meals, and the prices are very competitive. It is situated opposite the entrance to the Sunnegga railcar, and is on level ground. The seating is very comfortable, and the waitress is always there,... More

This restaurant had a warm welcoming atmosphere, there was an unexpected 'mise bouche' with a good range of choice on the main menu. The food was served hot after only a short wait, although there was no sense of feeling rushed. I enjoyed my pork escalope with an excellent glass of Swiss red wine. We would definitely eat here again... More

Good place to try the famous rosti, the other good point is that this place remains a "budget" place with specialities from the region

This very nice restaurant at the bottom station of the Sunegga Lift offers some traditional Swiss Rösti Dishes for very reasonable prices at high quality. The service was friendly and the atmosphere nice with a lot of wood and a fireplace for wood fire steak. A good place to stop for a meal whilst in Zermatt.

At the bottom of the Sunnega lift. Great goulash soup, tasty veal in mushrooms. Quite pricey, but then most restaurants in Zermatt are. Service was average, atmosphere quite bland but then it's probably not somewhere skiers frequent.
