We visited a place while on the skiing trip to Zermatt and we found it warm and cozy with the very attentive service. Like in most of the places in Zermatt lamb dishes are the most attractive ones and that was our choices too. We didn't miss it. I would strongly recommend this place for either romantic dinner or a... More

This intimate restaurant held the promise of a great meal. However, the slow service and average meal disappointed. The osso bucco was good but nothing special. We had to keep calling our waiter back for service. It was next door to our hotel which was about a 10 minute walk from the train station. The atmosphere was cozy and warm.

We were told that this is a restaurant that should not be missed if you visit Zermatt. We concur. After a week of hiking we were ravished and always looked forward to dinner. We ordered plenty of everything and were not disappointed. The lamb was superb. The servings were generous and the service to our large group of boisterous Yankees... More

I had a wonderful meal here. Plenty of choice on the menu, prompt service, and an Alpenhorn recital from the owner as well. What a treat!

We came here on a Thursday night after getting back to Zermatt from a 5 hour hike and a late start to dinner considerations. We didn't arrive at Restaurant Spycher until about 940PM and weren't optimistic about our chances of getting a table. But the server who greeted us was friendly and seated us at the bar while specially preparing... More

I had an aweful ride from Zürich to Zermatt with the Glasier Express- I dont recommend to waist time or money on it. After a 6 hour ride and poor service (in first class!!!)

We enjoyed the atmosphere at the Spycher in Zermatt. The room is cozy and filled with the smells of table side flambee'd meat and brandy. Our mixed salad was ordinary compared to the highly recommended coconut soup. For a main course, I had entrecôte which was a thin, uninspired offering but easily drowned in the nice Bernaise sauce. The chocolate... More

Dear Trepidation1 Thank you for your time to let us know your impressions. We are happy that you liked the ambiance of our restaurant. Unfortunately, we did not meet your expectations, but as you said, we are an "old world restaurant", which means for us traditional kitchen with some international influences. More

The duck with honey sauce was delicious and highly recommended. I thought it may have been too sweet, however the flavour was balanced well. The restaurant has a cosy feel to it, and the staff were professional and friendly. The only downside was that my partner noted that there was some debris floating in his wine. However, this did not... More
