Decent curries and beer. I had a chicken madras that was tasty. It is good value for Zermatt and very friendly owner. Worth a visit.

I have been to Zermatt several times, and have visited many many restaurants there. I have gone to several fine dining areas that given, were good, but all expensive and all raclette and other swiss foods. After a long day on the slopes, me, my brother, and parents were starving but didn't want to spend 300 CHF on a meal... More

A black lab named Charlie sniffed us upon arrival, decided we were ok, and followed Sparky while he showed us our seat. A truly unique and homey place, filled with lots of laughter, good cheer, and absolutely delicious food, reasonably priced. We had the vegetable samosas, crisp, flavourful and well-stuffed, followed by a delectable chicken rogan josh. Not usually ones... More

Nice play to enjoy a pint and some basic, cheap food. It sits on top of a hostel so hopefully you do not need to use the shared bathroom but the fun atmosphere makes it all worthwhile.

Sparky is one of the friendliest guys I've ever met. The food is delicious and reasonably priced. And Charlie the house dog is a treat too. Must visit!

The steak and ale pie was exceptional. Very hardy and filling. Perfect for after the slopes. It came with mashed potatoes and a small salad. The mashed potatoes were not what I was used to. I am used to a more buttery, heavily whipped potato. These were more of just mashed. The price was 32

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!
