This is an authentic Swiss restaurant that has been serving for years. The atmosphere is charming & vibrant, although a little bit noisy at busy times. The staff is very friendly & welcoming. It's obviously a place where the locals go. The meat fondue was excellent as were all the accompaniments. Wish we had eaten there more than once...

This is a cozy spot with many options for fondue and raclette. We had the house special fondue and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was reasonably priced and a nice experience in the middle of town. I would definitely recommend the Whymper-Stube for anyone looking to for delicious fondue and great service.

This place has a very warm and nice atmosphere. It's a comfy and cosy little establishment (I think there are more tables on other side of building); a well managed family business it seems. Service is great. The food is wonderful too. My medium rare steak was cooked just the way I wanted it and it came with a nice... More

Lovely service in a traditional setting right in the middle of the Main Street. The restaurant is warm and inviting with a good menu of meats, fondue and raclette. We also enjoyed schnitzels which were well received. Lovely salad vegetables with the main courses and the entree soups (beef) were full of flavour. Enjoyed it.

We had a very enjoyable dinner here during their first seating. We had the "Small Matterhorn" set menu, which was a salad and three servings of Raclette per person, plus a small dessert. It was perfect for us, as we wanted a Swiss meal, but didn't want to go too heavy. The raclette is served with potatoes, cornichons, and pickled... More

Great food , but asked to leave after an hour and a half for a second sitting having spent 85 Swiss francs ahead for our family of five and we were only half way through dessert! Won't go back!

This very old restaurant in the middle of Zermatt is charming and the service is very good. The food is Swiss oriented and the prices are mid-range. Overall, its a great place to eat if you visit Zermatt.

The restaurant is very cozy in a sweet mountain atmosphere and the food is very typical from the region with a lot of cheese or fondue specialities. The food quality is excellent and the wine list is great :-)

For a traditional cheese fondue dinner, this is the place to visit. The restaurant is below ground level beneath the Hotel Monte Rosa. The entrance is easy to access right off of the main street in Zermatt. You enter the restaurant into a large dining room and there is a smaller room through a doorway. We came for dinner on...
