The restaurant is elegantly furnished with chalet style wooden beams and open wood fire grill. The seating was spacious and very comfortable. For entré we´ve had the Shrimp Salad and Sauted Scallops Garnished With Rocket Salad. For fish lovers we would definitely recommend the Fried Sea Bass Filet which was very succulent. For meat lovers the Beef Sirloin Steak with... More

We asked the hotel to make reservations at Chez Max Julen for six of us. We walked in and the restaurant was fairly bright unlike others in Zermatt and a little noisy. But that was because everybody was having a great time. We sat at our table and it took the waitress a while to come over to our table,... More

If I could give more than 5 stars I would. During our stay in Zermatt, we dined at the Chez Max Julen several times and each time the dining experience was flawless. We kept coming back because of the delicious food, the friendly and attentive staff and the wonderful atmosphere. The food, in particular the steak dishes, were delicious and... More

Had soup as starter, Chateaubriand as entrée and cinnamon ice cream with stewed plums for dessert. Food was damn good. Service is super friendly. But I can't give five stars because of the wine card. I'm a red wine enthusiast and I need to say, that the wine card is outdated. And I'm kind of upset to see Bordeaux vintages... More

This was our first night in Zermatt for the week so we were looking for something with a local feel - Chez Max Julen did not disappoint! Since it's off season and a Monday night we did not need a reservation. My husband got the rib-eye which was grilled in the open fire in the middle of the restaurant which... More

We went to Chez Max-Julen about a week ago on the recommendation of the concierge at a different hotel . We were a family group of 8 adults. Not only were the food and ambience outstanding, but the chef could not have been more pleasant and willing to please. He cooks all the meat on a small wood fire grill... More

A little slow (customer-wise) in the dining room at lunch time - end of season and all. But still greet meat. Lamb, veal. Always perfectly seasoned and perfectly cooked...

We asked one of the local people in Zermatt where to go for wienerschnitzel and they said you MUSt go to Chez Max Julen. We did and what a treat. You must have good directions as it is on the lower level next to the river. Wonderful and friendly staff. could not have been more pleased. They had endless supply... More
