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

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
