We were in the restaurant twice. First time the burgers were awesome!
Wine was also very good, and we really admired nice waitress who was helpful, friendly and cheerful.
2 days later we orders spare ribs and tartar beef. It was fine but no comparison to burgers.
Fortunately the same joyful waitress and same good wine "primitivo" made our evening.
Prices are "Zermatt level", similar to other restaurants we checked.
Recommended for burgers.

Thank Lena W

From the minute we stepped into this restaurant we should have guessed how bad it would be. Instead of welcoming us, we were asked if we wanted "a real breakfast or just coffee". Should have stepped out straight away. We said we were really hungry so we asked for the menu. They brought us a list which only included omelette and scrambled eggs. They were particularly unwilling to prepare anything else for us and they suggested we use the buffet breakfast instead. In the end we were offered an "imaginary" breakfast instead of a real one. The portions were so tiny we thought they were pulling a joke on us. The omelette and scrambled eggs could easily fit in an espresso plate. The hot chocolate was in fact cold. We talked to a lady that seemed to be the owner of the place and she treated us with a fair bit of arrogance. She was both disrespectful and patronizing. The only good thing about this restaurant was the waiter who was very apologetic and very helpful. He felt so embarrassed that he even offered to buy us breakfast. I ended up paying 18 CHF for a cup of tea and a half scrambled egg. Don't know what their lunch or dinner looks like but I would certainly not walk in that place ever again. There are hundreds of better places in Zermatt!

Really hit the spot after a morning of awesome skiing.
considering we spent £30 each on a burger, chips and beer, it shouldn't have been too much to fill our water bottles with tap water. Instead they told us we had to fill our bottles in the toilet!

First experience having reindeer meat and it is delicious. The meat prepared by the chef was just right and it is tender and the fish I had was delicious. You can also order side dishes and we got ourselves Alaska potatoes, noodles, french dressing salad and mixed vegetables.

A wonderful dinner on our first night in Zermatt.

This is a lovely, cosy, warm restaurant, where the service is second to none, and the food is very, very good. There is a good selection of meals, and the prices are very competitive. It is situated opposite the entrance to the Sunnegga railcar, and is on level ground. The seating is very comfortable, and the waitress is always there, to help in any way she can. I am already looking forward to my next visit.
