“Good burgers, generous sides”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2014

We happened upon this pub when we needed to eat early, and most restaurants weren't open yet. We thought 16 CHF was a lot to pay for a burger, but not by Swiss standards. My husband ordered a cheeseburger, and I a chicken burger, which was actually a grilled chicken breast. We were asked if we wanted fries, salad, or cole slaw, and I guess we could have asked for any or all, as my husband got salad with some fries thrown in, too, and when I asked for just cole slaw, I got about a quart, and we took some home. Very generous. Good place to sit and watch sports if you are so inclined.

“Good value for Zermatt”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2014

We ate here on our first night in Zermatt and had great meals. The menu suited our two boys aged 10 & 12 and was good casual venue for families. It reminded us of an Australian pub. The service was excellent.

“Chili Dog in Zermatt”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2014

My husband order a chili dog, which was really sausage, and fries. I had a melted ham and cheese sandwich with fries. We ate here for lunch on a Sunday spent wandering around Zermatt. Since most Swiss food is terribly expensive, this small cafe was a welcome relief. Other tourists, including families with children, singles, and locals were also eating there. Our waitress spoke enough English to understand what we were ordering. Pleasant experience for a delightful day in Zermatt!

Our group got various types of hamburgers and enjoyed them immensely. The service was very friendly and prompt, and the prices reasonable. I highly recommend this establishment - good food for a good price.

“Great atmosphere!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014

We've been at the World cup, and 2 matches of Holland and Swiss team.
The atmosphere was great!!
It is a bit expensive (as all Zermatt), thats why I gave 4 stars.
