We absolutely loved the restaurant Spycher. They offer high quality, hearty food with generous portions in a warm, cosy atmosphere which is exactly what I want after a long day on skis in the mountains! In fact, we liked it so much that we returned for another dinner two days later. The food was delicious. We particularly liked the beef... More

My fiance and I had a delicious dinner at Spycher a few days ago. We had the chateaubriand flambe and crepes suzette, both of which exceeded expectations and were 'flambeed' right in front of us! We were made to feel very welcome by the chef/owner whose family has lived in Zermatt for many generations. We felt like we had gone... More

They had a special New Years dinner we enjoyed. Quite a variety of different tastes (not all things we would have ordered,) and all prepared and presented with care.

We were met by our gracious host and served by two lovely staff throughout the meal. It is a very traditional family run restaurant with a host well versed on the goings on of Zermatt. The food was good quality traditional fare - meats, flambé etc. I think the flambé is a bit of theatre so we enjoyed ordering our... More

Service was good despite the restaurant being very busy. Food was tasty and price was fairly comparable with other similar establishments in Zermatt.

Visited for Christmas day dinner and were not disappointed. The staff welcomed us with grace and charm, very professional. The food was absolutely delicious, despite the fact the restaurant was full and the kitchen no doubt extremely busy. The wine list was extensive and listed something for all tastes - fairly unusual for Zermatt it's possible to have a robust,... More

A sure bet for great meats, especially their flambé items. We can recommend the venison (Rehrücken) along with a good bottle of Valais wine from their extensive wine list.

Dined at this restaurant in February 2016 so a bit of a late review, but nevertheless. The table setting was crammed and the atmosphere was uncomfortable – designed for quantity rather than quality. The surly waiters who stared from the kitchen did not help the overall disappointing experience. No table water provided. Claims there is a bar but could not... More

Dear hely51, thank you for your feedback. In fact we are a restaurant with a selected wine list. The meal size from our first plate of the Flambe show is not that big, because we serve two times. We serve table water with wine or other drinks for free but not only table water. We regret, that you didn't like... More
