Lamb was great and the end of meal song and show are worth the money! Eclectic decor - fun "record" menus. Definitely a must see if visiting Zermatt!

Chez Heini is an institution in Zermatt and that for good reason. The service is super straight forward, responsive and funny. The food is creatively arranged and very tasty. Lamb lovers will not find a better place in Switzerland. Enjoy, its great!

Even if you don't stay for the polarizing show, this place will still make it in the "excentric" category for most of us. From starters served in a shoe (a new one, I am told) to layers of layers of beautiful lamb, food is great, decor is outrageous and staff friendly. Do try it but be prepared

It stared really wierd and I was worried if this evening wouldn't be a disaster, but it turned out to be a fantastic, funny and yummy place. First thing, you eat lamp! If you don't like it, don't go there or give it a chance. It's so delicious! Second, you like live local music! If not..... I will definitely go... More

What a great experience! You will find a super stylish place AND: the food is as great as the place! Try the lamb mix, and just rely on recommendations and enjoy this fantastic place. By the way, the waitresses are super cute... Highly recommended.

We were recommended to eat at Chez Heini during our recent few days' break in Zermatt, and how glad we were, as otherwise we may have missed a wonderful evening. From the moment we entered and were greeted by Matthias, we knew it was a "one off" experience and one we were glad we had saved for our last night.... More

Interesting place Chez Heini is. First of all, DON'T BE LATE. This was beaten into us by our hotel concierge when he made the reservations for us. And proof, while we were there, a party (who seemed familiar to the establishment) came in and without any welcoming pleasantries, was greeted with a "you're 4 minutes late!" I looked at the...
