So we came across this place walking around after dinner Christmas eve. We had just spent $340 on dinner at another location that really did not do it for me. We noticed they were serving a traditional turkey dinner here so we decided to go in the next night. It was a pretty good dinner and Sparky was a awesome... More

A hidden gem in Zermatt! Sparky, the owner, greeted us and served our table throughout the meal. Food was fantastic and service was great. Highly recommend! The restaurant is very small so I suggest a reservation. I emailed Sparky before our trip and he responded very quickly confining the reservation. Will return on next visit to Zermatt!

Though it is not a big restaurant but the kind of food and service they are rendering there is simply marvelous. The flavor of the food is still fresh in my mind.

My wife and I gave Sparky's a try on our last night in Zermatt. We were surprised and very pleased at the quality of food and the friendliness of the owner! We arrived fairly early for dinner and there was only one other group in the restaurant. It got busier as the evening went on. We both ordered curry spiced... More

We had a great experience at Sparkys. We were looking for a change of pace from the traditional Swiss restaurants of Zermatt (i.e. Raclette) and found Sparkys. We sat at the bar and enjoyed chatting with sparky and getting an insiders view of the town. We had the Thai curry chicken which was excellent- especially for a small Swiss mountain... More

Cozy atmosphere excellent food. My daughter had the nachos which may seem like an odd item to order in Switzerland but they were amazing and generous. I had the thai curry chicken which was seriously the best curry I've ever had and I am from a foodie town in Portland OR USA. Warm friendly service, fun to chat with locals... More

Wonderful food and service with very warm staff. They managed to serve us some very nice Indian dishes as well. Shall surely visit again when next in Zermatt.

Husband loved the pork ribs and I enjoyed a vegetarian curry. Lovely staff and a nice relaxed atmosphere. Chocolate brownie for dessert was definitely my highlight.
