From the few photos and the few reviews, it might be hard to tell but this is right on the mountain. Just after you get off the funicular to go skiing. It has a view of the ski runs and the Matterhorn. My husband and I met our kids back at this restaurant after their ski lessons. One of the... More

Have tried all the other canteen style restos & this one at Sunegga is definitely the best for food. Tasty pasta dishes, good-sized portions & great selection of fresh self-serve salads. It's basic canteen style & can get really busy, so don't expect 5 star but you shouldn't be disappointed after a stop-off here. Recommended.

Sunnegga's restaurants are at the top of the underground railway in an area of challenging and not so challenging ski runs. There is a self service restaurant, which we used, or you can have waiter service. We went on a miserable day and the large restaurant was a great relief. There was a glarge choice of mountain food (bratwurst, rosti,... More

We'd been looking for a restaurant more similar to what you'd find on the slopes in the US - and this was it! I got a brat and fries, and my husband had a brat and this Swiss potato cake thing with onion gravy over it. We loved what we got! It was about 50CHF for the two meals and... More

After having beenspit out by the Sunegga underground, this is the first opportunity to start charging caffeine. A nice open space restaurant without real ambiance. Functional.

The food here is good quality, from salads to pasta, soups and rosti. It is all very tasty. My family have spent our last 20 years on ski trips to Zermatt and we have been through the whole menu! The views outside on a fine day are breathtaking. A great place to eat and meet.

For the past 10 years, we spend about 4 weeks yearly in this superb resort. Time to give some feedback to the overall high quality restaurants in the area. Good for a quick coke or ice tea. Food is way below par and even the coffee is bad. There is much better out there for a good lunch on the... More

Description
In the Buffet Bar Sunnegga - as those conversant with the Valais dialect will already have guessed - guests are spoilt with sunshine from morning until sunset. It's the perfect spot to enjoy local specialities and a glass of fine wine. Our large sun terrace also offers up impressive views of the Matterhorn. Thanks to the close proximity of the "Standseilbahn Sunnegga" station, the restaurant is also an ideal meeting point for non-skiers.
