Decent choice of food - expensive - at the top of the world what would you expect. Pay for bathroom unless you buy food.

We went to the restaurant and had hot chocolate and cute sheep cookies after seeing the rest of the Glacier Paradise...it was the perfect place to warm up before taking the cable cars down the mountain. Yum!

We had a delicious prawn pasta and bratwurst with rosti and both were delicious. Yes it's expensive but I'm used to coughing up an arm and a leg to eat on the piste.. part of skiing Zermatt unfortunately!

We dined here for lunch and it was very good, we had steak and chips with vegetables. The meat was very soft and tender and everything tasted very good. The view was out of this world and the price was a little steep, but it is a tourist spot and I guess thats the price you pay for it. It... More

Food prices are extortionate but what else would you expect at the top of a mountain. CHF12.50 for a bowl of soup. Food quality was really good. It is very warm compared to the outside glacier paradise and tunnels. Fine for the warmth but not great for a full meal or lunch. Amazing views.

Dear AngusAsh, I would like to thank you for your review. It is true, it is really warm in the restaurant compared to the tunnel. The restaurant generates enough energy from the photovoltaic system integrated in the building’s façade to cover all its heating, ventilation and lighting requirements for the entire year. This energy-saving design for Zermatt Bergbahnen AG serves... More

To be fair, the costs of getting stuff to/from here must be elevated...but they also have a captive audience...just chose with care. We stopped for a rest and a bite to eat...would I stop by again...yes...

After taking the cable cars to the summit of the Klein Matterhorn, we were starting to feel the effects of the altitude so decided to get a bit of food. Located at 3883m there can't be many restaurants higher. The food was reasonably priced considering the location and the prices elsewhere around Switzerland and what we got was better than... More

This place is an absolute joke. They recently renovated it and along with the renovation (which was a huge step down in my opinion) they have also decided to charge 2 Swiss francs to use the bathroom! Their food is really awful and insultingly high-priced. To top it off they have perhaps the rudest staff I have ever encountered in... More

Description
Good for body and soul – and for the environment: The renovated restaurant and Peak Shop at Europe’s highest cable car station are always worth a visit. Large panoramic windows offer a magnificent high-alpine vista, while the open show kitchen invites guests to see their meals being prepared.

The Matterhorn glacier paradise restaurant is modern and eco-friendly. In 2010, the zero-energy building with Minergie-P certification was awarded both the Swiss and the European Solar Prizes.

The restaurant offers a very varied menu, from home-made soups via Valais specialities and Alpine classics to Indian dishes, which are served during the summer months. A constantly changing menu of the day rounds off the offering.
