I ate here with a group of 24 organized by Odysseys Unlimited. We all started with a very nice salad and then shared fondue. The fondue was very good and came with lots of bread. The service was very attentive and everyone enjoyed the restaurant.

My wife and I have been to Zermatt twice now and both times have eaten at least one meal here. Staff is friendly and the food is great. Authentic Swiss fondue is wonderful. We highly recommend.

Yes, it is open for lunch and they do have raclette as well. You can walk anywhere in Zermatt as it is a small town and your hotel will be able to advise directions once you are there
