My husband and I first dined at the Whymper-Stube thirteen years ago during our first visit to the Matterhorn. We went back this weekend for sentimental reasons but we enjoyed it so much we are there twice over the weekend. The setting is cozy and typical Swiss. The staff are excellent and friendly. The food is wonderful. We had some... More

The place was packed with other tourists doing exactly the same as us so it was a little snug seating wise. The cheese fondue for 3 of us was delicious with all the usual accompaniments.

I do love the fondues at this restaurant, we mostly had the cheese fondue but also tried the chinoise once and were really pleased. Luckily the place didn't close as announced a while ago ( I think the previous owners retired ), and it's still as good as it was before.

Nice central location, but there are better raclettes and cozier atmospheres to be found in other Zermatt establishments.

The best meal we had in Zermatt. This is first time I've ever ordered a burger outside the US, but did so on a recommendation. Top 5 best burgers I've ever had. My wife had the farm house salad which was also extremely good.

We enjoyed everything the 4 of us ate. I had 1/2 an escargot and bratwurst and my wife had the other half of the escargot and ham and melon. The other couple had the lamb and a dinner salad.

It s not easy to find A place where to eat in Zermatt as there is a lot of offer so I looked on google where to eat the fondue in Zermatt. Sorry trip advisor but the search was not accurate enough to focus on the fondue ! We have been very well received even if it was 5:00 pm... More

Dining at this restaurant is a "must" when visiting Zermatt. It is a family-owned authentic Swiss cuisine restaurant offering excellent fondue and raclette in a wonderful cozy old world charm atmosphere. Reservations are essential unless you are interested in dining late.
