    El Toro Negro in Verbier: American BBQ in Switzerland?!?!

    by orangeracerx Updated Feb 28, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The restaurant was hoot! It was definitely a dining experience I will never ever forget in my life time. The food was a great take on American BBQ and the desserts were very tasty. But I have to say that the entertainment had to have been the best thing about the experience. An American BBQ restaurant in the middle of the Alps where they tried their best to sing American country songs. Imagine someone who can hardly speak English trying to sing in English especially a country song, it was great! Anyone who is in that area YOU HAVE TO GO and eat at El Toro Negro!

    Favorite Dish: The huge baked potatoes were delicious! Besides being some of the largest poataoes ever they had everything you could ever want on one and it definatly filled me up.

    Restaurant Rothorn: Beer and Rösti at 10,000 Feet

    by travelfrosch Updated Aug 5, 2012

    Looks good...

    A great way to end a long hike. Whether you hiked all the way to the top, or hiked to an intermediate station and took the gondola the rest of the way, you'll feel you've earned the reward. Sit on the terrace and admire the Matterhorn while enjoying beer, wine, soft drinks, and/or food. If you have the money (as you can imagine, the food ain't cheap!), it's worth every rappe just to linger at the top of the mountain.

    Favorite Dish: I'm partial to the Rösti, especially after a long hike. It has about a gazillion calories, but that's probably about how many you burned to get here.

    Rifugio Guide del Cervino: Lunch at over 3,480M

    by Roadquill Written Dec 28, 2011
    1 more image

    Located near the top of the summit where the mountain splits off between Switzerland and Italy, the Rifugio Guide del Cervino is a classic high, mountain bar and restaurant where skiers and hikers can warm up, grab a beer or glass of wine and a hearty meal. I was told that this place and places like it on the mountain were old herder and mountaineer shacks.

    3100 Kulmhotel Gornergrat: 3100 Kulmhotel Gornergrat Restaurant

    Morning tea

    Located 3100 metres above sea level at Gornergrat is the highest hotel in the Swiss Alps. The Kulmhotel Gornergrat has been around for over 100 years. The hotel is home to a couple of restaurants, both which have large sun terraces ensuring stunning views for you as you slurp your soup.

    We visited the modern "Panorama self-service restaurant", which sold a good range of hot and cold meals, sandwiches and cakes. There was a large seating area inside, but we just had to sit on the sun terrace - we did have to hover for 10 minutes to bag a table, but it was well worth the wait.

    Favorite Dish: Once our seat was sorted, we popped inside and got some coffee, tea and cakes. I had a slice of carrot cake, identifiable by the cute marzipan carrot on top. We sat in the sun and soaked it, and the views, in.

    High altitude restaurant
    1 more image

    This high altitude restaurant is located on the Plateau Rosa close to the Theodul pass and Testa Grigia at 3'480m just at the Italian and Swiss border.

    At the first floor you will find a self service bar, you must order first to the cashier and pay your meal before to get served. Price is proportionnal to the altitude I mean high... Do not pay in CHF or you will have the bad surprise to have a quite unfavorable exchange rate. I would advise only to have a quick snack over there to enjoy the viewThe view from the terrace. An ground floor you will find a restaurant for more consitent meal on a panoramic terrace well protected from wind by a window fence.

    Hotel Restaurant Kulm Gornergrat: Welcome to the highest hotel in the Alps...

    by Tripack Updated Apr 4, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Great observatory

    The terrace, situated at 3'000m/10'000 feet above sea level, offers a unique view of the Monte Rosa, Liskamm, Castor&Pllux, Breithorn and of course Matterhorn. The self-service restaurant offers good, reasonably-priced meals.

    On the photo you could see two domes. They provided a vantage point from which scientists could look out into space using infrared and radio telescopes. The clean air and optimum light conditions at this location allow an exceptional view of the galaxies.

    The hotel is open all year round except November; the restaurant is open all year round.

    In a cosy athmosphere you could delight your eyes within this rustic setting and your palate with the tasteful meal and wine.
    You can "supervise" the meticulious preparation of you meat and watch the flambée show before enjoying your meal.

    Restaurant Spycher is member of the Chaîne des Rôtisseurs : so no surprise permitted about the excellent quality of service and meal.

    The owner is also an excellent alpenhorn player .

    Favorite Dish: Choose your favourite meat with an exceptionnal local wine (as usual ;-).

    ICE: Self service buffet or Pizzeria in altitude...

    by Tripack Updated Apr 13, 2010

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Restaurant Trockener Steg, reconstructed at a cost of CHF 12 million, reopened on for winter 2009/10 under the new name of Ice – Buffet/Bar/Pizzeria.

    This restaurant is situated at an altitude of 2'939m /9'640 feet close to the Matterhorn. The building stands at the foot of the Theodul Glacier, which lies between the Matterhorn and the Klein Matterhorn.

    The self-service ICE BUffet restaurant has seating for 400 guests inside and a further 400 on the sun-terrace.

    My favorite experience is on 2nd floor where you could find the pizzeria ICE. Head to the terrace to enjoy delicious pizza made thanks a wood fire oven. By the my fav. piz' is the Biagio with Tomato sauce, mozzarella, oregano, fresh tomatos, rocket, parmesan, parma ham or try a copious pasta meal... Enjoy your meal and the view!

    Chez Gaby.....: Different way of doing things.....

    by Maryimelda Written Oct 24, 2009

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Chez Gaby.....

    This seems to be a typical Swiss Restaurant until you get inside and find that there is no kitchen as such. the meals are all cooked in a tiny corner of the main restaurant. Likewise, the dishes are washed in another corner which also serves as the bar and cash desk.
    The restaurant seats about 100 people inside and out and by the time I left it was packed to the rafters. There were 3 chefs and 4 waitresses on duty and they carried it off with a minimum of fuss. It was really quite amazing.

    Favorite Dish: I lashed out on a Sirloin Steak with creamy mustard sauce, wilted spinach french fries and salad for 32CHF. this was definitely my best dining experience in Zermatt. I highly recommend it.

    Dariolis Tea Room.....

    This is just a lovely little cafe where you can get a light lunch at a good price and then get back to the serious business of seeing the sights. The service is friendly, efficient and no nonsense. Added bonus of a lovely clean toilet.

    Favorite Dish: There seemed to be a lovely menu of sandwiches, salads, cakes and pastries and every sort of coffee. I had Quiche and salad and a Cappuccino for 12CHF. Bottom line....excellent for the money.

    Restaurant Weisshorn.: Not many tourists here...

    by Maryimelda Updated Oct 24, 2009

    Restaurant Weisshorn.....

    This is definitely a locals hangout as you have to climb over the "beer after work" crowd who sit right in front of the entrance. The restaurant itself is quite lovely. Friendly staff, good service.

    Favorite Dish: I chose the Veal with Creamy Mushroom sauce and I was served a very hearty and tasty meal which came accompanied by loads of beautifully steamed vegetables. With my standard glass of red, the bill was 24 CHF.

    Papperla Pub: Apres ski set.....

    by Maryimelda Written Oct 24, 2009

    Papperla Pub.....

    I have nothing against the apres ski set, believe me. It did feel a tad strange however, walking into a restaurant, at age 60 and alone, that was packed with very trendy young people really enjoying life and living. So why did I go in? Because the menu appealed to me at that particular point in time. The fare is mainly, burgers, salads, flammekeuchen, nachos, sandwiches etc. just what I was looking for.

    Favorite Dish: I don't know why but I chose to have flammekeuchen. I think it was because I thought that it might be one of the last opportunities I would get to have this, as I was soon to be moving away from "flammekeuchen territory". In any event it was very good as was the glass of red I washed it down with.

    Half an hour walk direction Matterhorn to Blatten and you come across this lovely restaurant where you can sit outside and enjoy the sunshine. We just had coffee because we were not hungry but the other guests had rösti and cheese fondue. There are blankets to wrap up in to keep the cold out
