This cosy restaurant on Sunegga skislope is great for finishing a good day of skiing. Excellent service. Fine menu ( all kinds of salmon) and good wine! The terrace with windscreens is well placed. Inside a cosy atmosphere. The owners stop at the end of this season, so be sure to make a reservation soon!

After 10 years we gave the restaurant a new chance. It was a disaster. Food bad, service unfriendly and incompetent. Friends from London and the first time in Zermatt had been shocked about the relation price versus quality and service. The lodge is again for the next 10 years of the list. And there a much better lodges in Zermatt... More

Lovely mountain restaurant that you can reach in 30 minutes by foot from Westi area of Zermatt with fantastic views along the path. The owners fish in Alaska all summer to bring a variety of salmon to Zermatt in the winter. My friend got the smoked salmon on toast and I got the salmon steaks with veggies and mashed potatoes....

When hiking between Sunnegga and Zermatt, right in the middle there's a perfect spot to relax, eat, and watch the Matterhorn in all its glory. I ordered a cappuccino just to have an excuse to be there. For my surprise, the food that came after was delicious. Just imaging, after hiking for almost an hour, to find that peace, quiet... More

The definite Swiss experience of a hut in the mountains. Homey vibes, tasty food and stunning views. Suggest trying their hot chocolate and chocolate cake.

We stopped off for some mulled wine and snacks on the way down the mountain. Everything was so good we stayed until after dark and had to ski the rest of the way down after the snow cats had already groomed the slopes! The owners run a salmon fishing outfit in Alaska during the summer and this place during the... More

Cozy atmosphere, excellent food espesially lachs and fish soup, Matterhorn view and roe deers walking around. It was very delicious and relaxing lunch at the slope #2 from Sunnega to Zermatt!

Othmar's is super neat. We stopped here for coffee on our way down for last day of skiing, should I find my way back to Zermatt I will definitely make sure to come back for a meal. The restaurant itself is a work of great care - the owners clearly take great pride in their establishment. Its just a fun... More

We go to this place several times a year and we always come to the same conclusion: it is great and different! As the owners spend their summers in Alaska the menu offers many different combinations of dishes (pasta, röstis, etc) with salmon. The salmon is outstanding and the cook does a great job in combining everything with this fish.... More

Excellent salmon tartar or king crabs from Alaska. The owner lives there during the summer and in winter, you can enjoy these specialities in Zermatt.
