Stopped here for lunch and along with the gorgeous view of the Matterhorn we got the tastiest cheese fondue with bacon, highly recommend! Waiters super friendly!

This restaurant has the best view of matterhorn peak in Zermatt, located on the iconic bridge that has a landmark view of Matterhorn. Its fondue is quite good and price is reasonable.
