Restaurant
“A basement restaurant in the Hotel Alex on Bodmenstrasse. The garish stained glass mountain scenes on the walls and paisley upholstered chairs with gold frames may not be to everyone's taste, but you can't argue with the quality of the food at Hotel Alex Grill. It's rich, delicious and occasionally eccentric – there's white wine soup with dried meat; duck breast with pumpkin-mango chutney and sweet potatoes; icy Läckerli mousse, coffee ice cream and sauce of vanilla from Tahiti; plus a great range of Swiss steaks. Bodmenstrasse 12, 3920 Zermatt, +4127 966 70 70, www.hotelalexzermatt.com/catering-en/bodega-bacchus-en/bodega-bacchus/, $$”

Swiss Restaurant
“On the main street, in the Schweizerhof Hotel. At the end of April 2018 the hotel closed for renovation and will re-open on December 21 2018, but if Schwyzer Stübli remains unaltered, its excellent set menu, which changes daily, is a steal. There's also a good à la carte menu (mid-range prices) of Swiss specialities, and the service, by cheerful, dirndl-clad waitresses, is great. But the real bonus is live Swiss music – folk music groups perform every day from 5pm in winter. It's a brilliant place to take children for an early family supper, or to have a waltz between courses. Bahnhofstrasse 5, 3920 Zermatt, +41 27 966 00 00, www.schweizerhofzermatt.ch/, $”
