We were returning to our home from the Toronto airport when we decided to take a break and visit downtown Cobourg. We cruised down the picturesque main street when we saw the Matterhorn Restaurant and decided to try it out. After a friendly greeting, we enjoyed a coffee while checking out the menu. I had Jager schnitzel with apple bacon... More

They have a very European menu. Wiener schnitzel especially good with sauce and pasta. Also good wine list.

I've had dinner here a few times now, and each time it was consistently good. I mean REALLY good. I'll take consistently good over many visits, than one excellent visit, and 5 misses. That's why the Matterhorn scores big. The schnitzels, pork,chicken or veal, fresh everyday. With names like Farmer's - a schnitzel with diced bacon, fried sauerkraut,carmelized onion and... More

This was my second time dining at the Matterhorn--the first after the ownership change. The food was just as good as I remembered and the service was even better. I ordered schnitzel with spaetzle and our waitress recommended I try the red cabbage as the second side. It was delicious! The steak was also amazing and buttery tasting. After our... More

I have heard good things about this restaurant and we were enroute from Trenton to Oshawa yesterday and rather than grabbing something bland tasting at a fast food chain close to the highway we decided to give the Matterhorn a try and we were happy we did. The service was great, the menu had a good selection of entrees and... More

I don't want to be picky, but it is rare that everything is perfect. The service was top notch, the schnitzel was very good, and the company was great. I thought that I was ordering schnitzel on a bun, but the bun was sort of there and sort of wasn't -- certainly not large enough, and it was sort of... More

At the end of a very cold, windy and RAINY, sixty kilometre bike ride in October, my husband and I were looking for a place to warm up. We're from Toronto, we don't know Cobourg at all, and we had no idea where to go for a pint or two of beer, a little red wine (for me - it's... More
