sipping a glass of wine, or having snacks or meals, looking at the snow clad mountains around you - it makes you forget that there is a humdrum world out there that you have left behind and have to go back to

Excellent food, although not cheap. After a long strenuous climb, I highly recommend their soups and hot chocolate. On a another note...Be ready to pay to use their washroom ;)

Decent choice of food - expensive - at the top of the world what would you expect. Pay for bathroom unless you buy food.

We went to the restaurant and had hot chocolate and cute sheep cookies after seeing the rest of the Glacier Paradise...it was the perfect place to warm up before taking the cable cars down the mountain. Yum!

I actually never had an issue with the food here, there seem to be, avrage-to-high standards in the kitchen and wider than avrage selection on display.

We had a delicious prawn pasta and bratwurst with rosti and both were delicious. Yes it's expensive but I'm used to coughing up an arm and a leg to eat on the piste.. part of skiing Zermatt unfortunately!

Food prices are extortionate but what else would you expect at the top of a mountain. CHF12.50 for a bowl of soup. Food quality was really good. It is very warm compared to the outside glacier paradise and tunnels. Fine for the warmth but not...More

Dear AngusAsh, I would like to thank you for your review. It is true, it is really warm in the restaurant compared to the tunnel. The restaurant generates enough energy from the photovoltaic system integrated in the building’s façade to cover all its heating, ventilation...More

Description
Good for body and soul – and for the environment: The renovated restaurant and Peak Shop at Europe’s highest cable car station are always worth a visit. Large panoramic windows offer a magnificent high-alpine vista, while the open show kitchen invites guests to see their meals being prepared.

The Matterhorn glacier paradise restaurant is modern and eco-friendly. In 2010, the zero-energy building with Minergie-P certification was awarded both the Swiss and the European Solar Prizes.

The restaurant offers a very varied menu, from home-made soups via Valais specialities and Alpine classics to Indian dishes, which are served during the summer months. A constantly changing menu of the day rounds off the offering.
