This is a really touristy place and they will charge you loads of money for a very bad service and not particularly good food.
Go somewhere else if you want to enjoy your time. The waiters are very rude. If you want to be yelled at by a little italian man then go there. There are so many good restaurants in Zermatt with friendly service and authentic food. Do not waste your time and money there.

The place is nice and in an excellent location. The prices are reasonable. The servings got smaller in recent years, such as the Minestrone, the meats are of mediocre quality and the servings are small. It is not worth to eat meat in Swiss reastaurants, small servings, very expensive or poor quality such as the pork steak that we had here 350g, 30% bone, 40% fat, 30 percent decent meat.
The Minesrone, although very small serving, the salad (a little too much corn), the Pizza and the desert were great, also the beer on tap! We were here three times, once for a snack and twice for dinner.

We visited Zermatt last week and on our last morning, wanted a simple lunch in the town before our train left. We went into Walliserkanne where the restaurant manager very grudgingly allowed us in ( the restaurant was far from full) and was then most put out that we politely asked to sit at a vacant table by the window rather than deep in the ( rather dark) restaurant. I tried to attract a waiter to obtain menus- we'd been sitting at the table for over 5 minutes by this time, being ignored. He replied with a very sarcastic " good morning madam" and then walked off again. A further 5 minutes elapsed with no menus so I got up and took some myself- still no reaction. By this time, 2 further families had come in and all been welcomed and served. At this point we walked out.

I have no idea what their problem was but I have never experienced such blatant rudeness. Their restaurant is dark and unwelcoming and their staff rude and ungracious. Don't touch it with a bargepole.

We had a delightful meal in this beautiful restaurant. Make sure to look at all the ceilings. We were in the back room with a gorgeous fresco on the ceiling where we ate.

Fish served uncooked twice
Refused to acknowledge and the arrogance was unbelievable
Go to the Molino Sielerhaus further along the Main Street as it's much better
