    Mountain restaurant Blatten: Escape the winter blues in this mountain restauran

    by bianchis Written Jan 13, 2009

    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

    Trockener Steg Restaurant: Trockener Steg Self-Service Restaurant

    by sue_stone Written Aug 16, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    After an amazing visit to the Matterhorn Glacier Paradise we needed a nice cup of tea to defrost (as it was -5 celsius up there), so we headed down one cable car stop to Trockener Steg where we had spotted a restaurant on the way up.

    Favorite Dish: We just went to the 'self-service' part and helped ourselves to hot drinks and some tasty cake. We then found a sunny table on the terrace, put our feet up and drank in the views of the Matterhorn.

    We could have sat there for hours, looking at the surrounding peaks and glaciers. One of the most scenic places I've ever had a cuppa!

    Bergrestaurant Alphitta: Bergrestaurant Alphitta - in Riffelalp

    by sue_stone Written Aug 16, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    After a visit to scenic Gornergrat, we stopped off in Riffelalp for a wander and some lunch. When we happened across Bergrestaurant Alphitta, with its large, shady balcony we were smitten. The restaurant is perched on the side of a hill and there are lovely alpine views from here across the valley.

    Favorite Dish: Grabbing a great table on the balcony, we lapped up the views whilst waiting to order….things move slower in the mountains. We all opted for a Rosti - either topped with ham, cheese and egg, or with bacon and egg. They were really delicious and very filling.

    If the sun is shining I can really recommend Alphitta as a good place for a drink or meal.

    The Pipe: The Pipe - African, Indian, Asian

    by sue_stone Written Aug 16, 2008

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Pipe is a 'fusion' restaurant serving up dishes with African, Indian and Asian flavours. I was dubious at first, but the enthusiasm of the owner, coupled with the hope of never eating another rosti again (joking, I love them!), found us sitting down for dinner one evening. That and the fact the restaurant was about two steps from our hotel.

    The Pipe Restaurant and Bar is a "Surfers Cantina", with quirky décor and cheerful staff. Prices were a little higher than the other places we ate in Zermatt, though atmosphere and service was certainly better.

    Favorite Dish: We started with an unusual Lamb Salad to share, which had strips of tasty lamb, salad and banana. For main course we had the Karroo Lamb, which was marinated in African spices; the Tamarind Chicken Tikka; and the Springbok Biriyani.

    All of the dishes were nicely presented and filled with great flavours. I had the Tamarind Tikka and it was really nice and moist. Serving sizes were large though and unfortunately we had no room for dessert.

    Burgener Hotel Restaurant: Burgener Hotel Restaurant - Swiss Cuisine

    by sue_stone Written Aug 16, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    One night in Zermatt the first four places we tried to go to for dinner were fully booked - who knew you had to book ahead for a Tue night in summer - so we were getting hungry and irritable and agreed to eat in the next place that had a free table and wasn't budget-busting. So that is how we ended up at the Burgener Hotel Restaurant.

    As the name suggests, the old-fashioned looking restaurant was attached to a hotel, and I would guess that the other diners that night were staying there. I wasn't feeling confident about the food, especially as the service was a bit slap-dash.

    Favorite Dish: Happily the food was actually ok. We had the Rump Steak; the Filet of Rabbit; and the Rosti with ham and egg. The rabbit was one of the house specialities and was served with mounds of polenta.

    Prices were reasonable, though I doubt I would eat here again due to the lack of atmosphere - though it is probably more lively in winter.

    Café Fuchs: Café Fuchs - cafe, restaurant and cake shop

    by sue_stone Written Aug 16, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Café Fuchs describes itself as a restaurant, tea room, and bistro. It seemed more like a café when we had lunch there before catching the funicular up to Sunnegga.

    It was a gorgeous day and we found a nice table out on the terrace. Before we sat we had a look inside and decided on some ready made quichy-type things in the display cabinet, which we ordered from the counter staff. Once outside, a harassed looking waitress dashed past, taking our drink order on the way.

    Favorite Dish: It didn't take too long for our food to arrive, though I wasn't too excited by it. But then I rarely get excited about quiche.

    We waited for an eternity to try get our bill and in the end went inside and joined a long queue to pay. Finally at the front of the queue, they had no record of our order, and we had to repeat what we had eaten/drunk, three times. Boring.

    Pizza Roma: Pizza Roma - cosy Italian

    by sue_stone Written Aug 16, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Pizza Roma is a cosy pizzeria which was located close to our hotel in Zermatt. We wandered past it one evening when looking for somewhere for a relaxed meal, and were initially attracted by the prices, which weren't as exorbitant as neighbouring dining options.

    Favorite Dish: We were given a friendly welcome and shown to a snug table in a corner, close to the pizza oven. We decided not to have pizza that night, and all ordered a pasta option - the lasagne; the Spaghetti Carbonara; and the Spaghetti Bolognese. I

    t certainly wasn't haute cuisine, but was entirely edible, and we happily washed it down with a carafe of house wine.

    Restaurant Z'Mutt

    by HORSCHECK Updated Dec 20, 2007

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Our first little hike led us via the Matterhorn Panorama trail to Z'Mutt at 1936 m. Z'Mutt is a small hamlet of Zermatt and has at least two small restaurants for the thirsty hikers.

    We chose "Restaurant Z'Mutt" which offers various possibilities for outdoor seating. The Restaurant itself is located in a lovely old wooden building. It is only open from May until October from 9:30 until 17:00 h.

    They offer warm snacks and several homemade cakes, depending on availability. I had a shandy to drink and shared an apple strudel with my friend. The big piece of apple strudel was really delicious. Prices were reasonable.

    Bergrestaurant Fluhalp: Lunch Overlooking the Stellisee

    by travelfrosch Written Dec 16, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    One of my favorite things about hiking in the Swiss Alps is there's almost always a restaurant waiting at the top. Here's another nice example: Bergrestaurant Fluhalp. Open from December to April and late June to early October, the outpost offers hearty meals with magnificent views. There's also a stand called "Murphy's Pub" that appears to offer Guinness on tap, though I didn't try it.

    The restaurant also doubles as a hotel in the summer. You can stay in a double room for CHF 86 per night, while a dorm bed costs CHF 29 for the night. Breakfast is CHF 10. 3-course dinner for guests is CHF 30 per person.

    Favorite Dish: We sat on the patio and ordered Rösti. Mine was quite large with bits of bacon and two fried eggs on top. Sara tried a Rösti with tomatoes and cheese. They were both quite tasty. Beer was on tap, but we had more hiking to do, so I stuck with the Swiss soft drink Rivella. Salad bar is included in the price of the meal. Expect to pay about CHF 40 per person for lunch and a drink.

    Bergrestaurant Alphitta

    by HORSCHECK Written Sep 1, 2007

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    After a 3 hours hike from Sunegga Paradise we arrived at the Riffelalp (2200 m). It is home to the Bergrestaurant Alphitta which is a sort of mountain inn. Opening times are from 09:00 until 17:00 h.

    The restaurant has a large outdoor terrace for more than 70 people. On sunny days it is well frequented by hikers and locals. The toilets are accessible from the inside and outside.

    They offer genuine local cuisine and a wide range of pasta dishes. A cake buffet is available as well.

    I opted for a small mixed salad and an apple spritzer, which was tasty and reasonably priced. The bill was 16 CHF (about 10 Euro, 2007).

    Creperie-Cafe Serac

    by HORSCHECK Written Sep 1, 2007

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    After our arrival in Zermatt just after midday and checking in at the hotel we were a bit hungry.

    By chance we found the Creperie-Cafe Serac in the vicinity of our hotel. We found it a good option to have a quick snack before heading off for a hike.

    They have an outdoor seating area and a few small tables inside. The interior is pretty basic.

    The menu offers all sorts of Crepes from sweet to hearty. I chose the Crepe with apple and cinnamon which was yummy and was only 6,90 CHF (about 4,40 Euro, 2007).

    The down side: The music was a bit too loud; the cook seemed to be a big Rolling Stones fan as a live CD was playing and he also joined in the singing. It took quite a while until we finally got our Crepes. Service was friendly though.

  • Heimberg: Bring your patience...

    by Joo1st Updated Apr 9, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Restaurant Heimberg is beautifully designed by Zermatter artist Heinz Julen, which makes it to a very promising spot for a culinary experience. And although the food and wine - Heimberg is also a 'Vinothek' - really lived up to this promise, unfortunately the service ruined our evening.

    Although it started off quite ok at reception, our waiter (pictured) permitted himself way too many degrees of freedom compared to the lack of professionalism he displayed during the rest of the evening. Up to ignoring us up to 3/4 of an hour while our plates and glasses were empty, keeping himself busy with a dozen less important things. None of which he ever really finished and meanwhile quarreling with his colleauges. And a coffee in the bar below didn't make up for it because of the downright arrogant barman there.

    So if you decide to go there to enjoy the food, wine and the entourage be sure to bring a lot of patience.

    Supermarket: A sandwich perhaps

    by bianchis Written Jan 22, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Sometimes your budget might be tight and eating out in Switzerland on the whole can be quite expensive try the local supermarkets like Migros or Coop where you can buy sandwiches, drinks and fruit at a reasonable price. Even on Sundays they open in the morning and afternoon for a few hours.

    Chez Vrony with its huge outdoor terrace offers some of the best views of the Matterhorn as well as some excellent local food like Raclette.

    The chilled outdoor terrace is of the best in any ski town I have been to.
