“Great food and good service”
Reviewed 22 February 2012

Had a hamburger and it was excellent! The atmosphere was nice (maybe just a little to lound music - but it didn't really matter). Service was good and the bartenders were very friendly.

“Don't miss a chance to eat at the Snowboat”
Reviewed 17 February 2012

The chef at the Snowboat is doing some really special things. My husband got "Das Boat", a salad w/ chicken and what they advertise as a "vanilla chili" dressing. Sounds weird, but what a pleasant meal! The vanilla isn't overpowering, but lends a subtle sweetness to the subtle heat of the chili.

I had the "Walliser Burger", which was one of the best burgers I've ever had. It was perfectly cooked and the pickles on the side made it extra special.

The Snowboat is small, but very cozy and hip. I can't wait to eat there again!

“Ambience supreme!”
Reviewed 10 February 2012

In a town whose overall hospitality is reserved, it was a pleasure to find a restaurant as bold and cosmopolitan as the Zermatt Yacht Club. They've imported all-star talent into their kitchen and onto their musical stage, and it shows in spades. The multi-course meal was expertly prepared and beautifully presented, and perfectly supplemented by a Vancouver, Canada based musical duo performing jazz and blues. Everything added up to a superb evening in the shadow of the Matterhorn. Bravo!

“Stunning food, excellent value, especially for Zermatt”
Reviewed 30 January 2012

We ate there on a Sunday evening. The set menu was incredible, every course perfect. It's unusual to find modern, exciting food in CH, but Snowboat has done it. Then there's the price - CHF65 per person for 4 courses. That would have been good for average food, but when the food is truly stunning then CHF65 is frankly, a bargain. In addition there was live music, a chilled out duo doing jazz and easy listening stuff. Very cool. We loved Snowboat and will definitely return on our next visit to Zermatt
