Went to La Caleche twice for dinner first with friends and last during an extended board meeting which we located to Zermatt. Very pleasant, easy ambiance, good food, decent wine at a competitive price.

“Pure Delight”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 March 2014

We were looking to have a nice dinner in Zermatt as we were about to celebrate our 25 th Weddinganniversary.
I did some research on the internet and found " Le Caleche " .
One of my best ever foodexperiences. !
The staff including the wife of the chef are all extremely friendly and professional. The interior is what I would call modern Alpine classic.
The food was simply superb.
This is Michelin star stuff. The fact that this restaurant does not yet have a Michelin star baffles me.
When you' re in Zermatt please do visit this restaurant.

“Delicious!”

We had a lovely pre-valentines dinner at La Caleche. The service was excellent and the food was spectacular. I can't recommend the grilled beef in red wine enough, absolutely fantastic.

“Chef with a passion - simply excellent food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 January 2014

Chef Denis Matray and his wife Laurance are the perfect hosts in this excellent Restaurant in fancy Zermatt. The cuisine is exquisit and from high quality. We have chosen a four course menu for less than CHF 80.- and it was extraordinary from the starter to the brilliant dessert. The meat was cooked exactly as ordered and the wine recommendation matched the delicious meal perfectly. In addition to the delicious food, service was very friendly and attentive. We will certainly come back to this wonderful restaurant!
