“fantastic seafood at the heart of the Alps”
Reviewed 14 March 2014

Othmar's is located on the red piste (#2, Ried) down from Rothorn. Seafood is fantastic, I strongly recommend Crab Pot: Alaskan crab, prawns, langoustines, scallops, clams. Alaskan salmon is also very tasty but this Crab Pot - unbelievable!!!! Have been there 3 times, will come back when I come to Zermatt next year. The waiters are very friendly and helpful too. Thank you, Othmar's, for this perfect culinary experience!

“Fantastic quaint Swiss mountain restaurant”
Reviewed 19 February 2014 via mobile

This cool Swiss ski hut serves delicious gourmet mostly Swiss cuisine with a twist. They feature Alaskan salmon. Since its quite common in the states we opted for the reindeer special which was fantastic. I'm really happy that we stumbled across the quaint restaurant. The service was very friendly and fast especially considering that it was quite busy.

“Good surprise - friendly staff”
Reviewed 31 January 2014

On a snowy day decided to ski back to Zermatt - being hungry following sign for Restaurant - not easy to ski in out for beginner when we visited. On a snowy day luckily a table was found inside .
Traditional dishes like Rosti & soup - then seemed to have excellent selection of everything else.

Reviewed 7 August 2013

We loved the place. Everything we ate was wonderful. The staff was so friendly. The only thing is the service was a bit slow.

“God food, not easy to get a seat lunch time.”
Reviewed 18 July 2013

Stopped for a meal several times. Very good food, though not cheap, like everything in Zermatt :)

Better to book a table in the morning for a fix time for a relaxing lunch, with Matterhorn view.
Owners are friendly.
