took the awesome gondola ride here and that alone was so much fun. But to find the best apple strudel we had during our two weeks of traveling in Switzerland was the best surprise. I'd go back there just for the strudel and ice cream and delicious Minestrone soup. The service was laid back and friendly. Highly recommend when in...

A real mixed bag review. Service for us was excellent, we also managed to snag a great table in the sunshine. Very busy but timings still worked. Food was delicious to eat. A signature salad and rosti, but the potato was barely cooked causing real tummy ache afterwards. Should have known better! Both the chef and me. Very expensive if...

Visited for lunch in Feb, no waiter approached so had to get our own menus, asked to order 3 times waiters said "will be with you in a minute", never came. View is great but that is only thing that is going for this place. Highly highly advised to go elsewhere, Cervinia side is cheaper with fantastic food. Avoid at...

Was a disppointing day as we could not see much of Matterhorn. Really misty. We went into the restaurant to had lunch. The macaroni with minced beef was gorgeous. Many skiers were having snacks and hot drinks inside. Was cosy and warm inside, great view of the outside - snow , mountains, the sky, gondolas passing by.

I booked this hotel because everything in Zermatt itself was booked out. I was a little scared of the outcome as you need to take the cablecar and then you are in the middle of NOWHERE in the mountains. The last cablecar from Zermatt was at 4pm already, means you will be stuck in the mountains from 5pm until 8:40am...

Cannot describe how terrible the service was at this mountain restaurant. we waited 30 mins before a waitress gave us any attention, we were so fed up, we got our own menus, our bread and even our water from the kitchen. No one stopped us, infact the staff asked to help ourselves. Did I mention we called out to the...

Just off the top of the Matterhorn Express II lift is the Schwarzee Hotel/Restaurant. We stopped stopped here for lunch on the way from Schonbielhutte to Hornli Hutte. Nice out side patio with international clientele. Had Rosti Schwarzsee (cheese, ham, egg) & Harry's Salad (figs, prosciutto, Buffalo mozzarella, fresh greens) plus one wine, 2 mineral waters--total bill CHF 64.50; good...

Stayed at this hotel as the departure and arrival point for a climb of the Matterhorn. The rooms were modern and newly renovated, which was unexpected and welcome. The reason I'm writing this review though is to congratulate and thank the staff - Simon and Xavier in particular - for their exceptional service. Our team left the hotel at 3:30am...

After a long walk, the restaurant is a welcome breath of fresh air. View is incredible - unfettered lookout onto Matterhorn. The entrees are very nice. The desserts though were not much to speak of with limited choice (disappointing since swiss confections are fairly good). But the main course was quite good, and again, the view justified the price.
