The only thing positive about Ice Buffet is it's location at the top of the hill. If you can take your own eats/ picnic/ sandwiches if you head up the hill. The food quality is disgusting and close to inedible. The coffee was dreadful but...More

Great pizza and pasta and reasonably priced for Zermatt and a Mt. Bar/Restaurant. We had lasagna, a huge pizza margerhita, a glass of red wine, a large soda and both had coffee drinks - 70CHF. Nice service and food was really good.

After sipping your aperitif by the crackling fire in the open fireplace, you can savour your favourite pasta or choose your preferred pizza from a wide selection in a welcoming and refined ambience. And all accompanied by a nice glass of chianti from the Tuscany region or a fiery grappa to finish off your meal. Or do you prefer a comfortable and modern ambience, of which you can choose from a wide selection of dishes that range from traditional Swiss roesti, through to Alpine herdsman's macaroni prepared in a huge frying pan and Asian delicacies? In that case we recommend our Restaurant Ice Buffet&Bar.
