This was the 1st time for us in a traditional Swiss restaurant and so we left ourselves to the advice of the service staff, Lisa in particular. And that was the best decision!
The lamb was the best ever! And the Swiss style of serving it in 2 courses was great!!
A rally pleasing and satisfying experience...

The best lamb rack ever. Cooked perfect, great sauce to enhance the dish on to a whole new level.
Service is good, nice beer.

A must go place in Zermatt.

Simply the best lamb chops ever!!!
A must visit in Zermatt!
We had a lamb chops that recommended by the staff and another braised lamb. Both amazingly tender and tasty without the lamb kind of smell at all!!!!
Located in a hotel's LG floor.
Cosy little restaurant with excellent lamb dishes!!! Grilled lamb dishes are all highly recommended!

Our hotel had made reservations for us at this cosy restaurant. We were seated next to the counter and close to the BBQ kitchen.

The restaurant were quite busy, but service was quick. We had raclette as a starter nothing to special with the raclette. my husband had a leg of lamb for main and I went for a cheese fondue. The leg of lamb were perfectly cooked, very tasty. Cheese fondue nothing to special - average. (Best cheese fondue in town at whimper stube)

make sure to get a table far away from the BBQ - it got very uncomfortable warm in the room during our stay.

Reservations is a plus!

This is the second time in 3 years my wife and I are visiting this restaurant in Zermatt. Their lamb dishes are just outstanding. We heard about the restaurant when we visited Zermatt back in 2011.
At that time, we went there and had a fantastic culinary experience eating their lamb dishes. So when we went back to Zermatt now in August of 2014, we had to go back. The lamb dishes were just as delicious as we remembered. The owner of this restaurant has his own lamb farm up in the mountains. Just a great restaurant if you are looking for a culinary experience.
