About
Raclette, fondue and BBQ are the specialities that await you at Ferdinand. That's right. The menu is traditional. However, if you're thinking of a stuffy old fondue restaurant, you're way off. Ferdinand offers a taste of the cosmopolitan life in Zermatt. The atmosphere is hip. The meals are made with delicious, top-quality products. Alpine casual dining at Ferdinand means that all of our products come from either the Valais region or elsewhere in Switzerland.Last but not least: Ferdinand is also one of the architectural highlights in the CERVO Mountain Boutique Resort. The restaurant, which is located in its own chalet, has space for 80 guests and balances alpine tradition and modern style with

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A fun and unique place to enjoy great drinks, delicious food, and fantastic ambiance. The staff are very attentive to your needs and are very helpful if you have questions or want suggestions. It gets a bit warm due to the grills at the table,...so plan your outfit with that in mind.More

Nice ambiente, friendly and helpful staff. We had raclette, and advertised speciality. Rather than original raclette we were given slices of cheese to be put in a small table oven to melt/boil. These ovens were so hot we also almost melted. The white wine in...the glasses quickly became very hot as well. Not what we expected.More
