Nice place for cheese fondue and dried meat, but other dishes are very "simple". Good atmosphere and service, although food could be better.

Good food. Good service. We liked our waitress who claims to be able to serve customers in 6 languages. We made a mistake of ordering a beer fondue. Not restaurant's fault. Just forgot where we were (not in the US anymore). The beer fondue taste more like beer with a cheese flavor instead of cheese with beer flavor. So yeah....... More

We visit this nice place every year at the final evening of our ski holiday. There is a new management, however some personnel stayed. The menu has been updated, e.g. Cheese fondue with chili, great, or prepared with beer, also good. We Will visit Whymperstube again next time at the end of our holiday in Zermatt!

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
