The bar area is fun and lively, the cocktails are well made and it's a fun place to hang out for a few. The restaurant downstairs is small but has a great menu and the food is delicious. Great place. We really enjoyed our dinner

This restaurant needs a prior reservation if you want to have dinner here. It has lots of seafood dishes and among the best you'll find the clamps which are very well cooked. Cheesy polenta is good also but the crab burger is better to avoid. Very salty and didn't have a great taste. Better not to try it. And if... More

Although we love the genuine Swiss cuisine, it is really nice too to find something different here in Zermatt. We enjoyed the 'marine' atmosphere at the Snowboat as well as the delicious meal! Great service. Beautiful fireplace. Great evening!

Cosy restaurant with knowledgeable staff. We had to come back on our second day here as couldn't get a table the first night! Obviously very popular and not surprising as the food was lovely.
