Friendly and efficient service in a bar that gets pretty crowded as ski lifts close. Finger food available in bar and burgers are popular.

Well this is not your traditional Swiss restaurant - when you've had your fill of schnitzel and Fondue head to the SnowBoat for great design and a change up in menu. Seafood, endamane, creative tuna and salmon dishes. Good gluten free selection too. Kids menu available. According to our resident expert - the best espresso martini in town! Cheers to... More

My fiancée and I spent a week in Zermatt over Christmas which was amazing. We checked out trip advisor before our visit to obtain reviews on the best restaurants. We came across the Snow Boat and the reviews were very impressive. There were also a lot of comments referencing a specific young lady called Kat, which intrigued us! I have... More

We find this restaurant to be always evolving year after year in a great direction. Every year the menu is new and full of surprises. Frankly I only enjoy this and one other restaurant in all of Zermatt. Love that they added a kids menu. This year must try is the calamari appetizer very refreshing. Only negative and request to...

Zermatt is getting somewhat weird with regard to gastronomy. If one does not reserve tables 3 months in advance, there is a chance to end in the Mc Donald. Well, we were lucky enough to be able to book a table the same day we arrived at the Snowboat. We really appreciated the cosy atmosphere, the very friendly welcome (thanks... More
