Why wife and I stopped here for lunch on a rainy afternoon, having recalled the advice of a fellow traveler we met on the train from Andermatt to Visp. They are known for their lamb, but we wanted cheese fondue and couldn't decide, so we...More

This is a cosy place serving traditional local dishes. I think the evening could have been very pleasant, had it not been for the waiter serving me. He was arrogant and not welcoming. I didn't like either how he talked with a younger waitress who...More

This restaurant is very nicely designed with a great Swiss chalet feeling. The menu is wide and the food of very good quality. The staff was also very professional and kind. Definitely a place to recommend!

The reception desk assured the food was made in the same kitchen. The service was average. Our waiter seemed tired and rushed. He was very curt and uninterested in really helping us. Definitely not warm and friendly. The first sign was the soup was literally...More

I had to drag my sister-in-law away from Julen: she'd fallen in love with the place! Mind you the fit out is very comfortable and plush. Julen has the best salad bar we found anywhere in Zermatt - and we really did look as we...More

Worthy of it's TripAdvisor rating. Very friendly staff with a feeling of family and delicious food (at a fair price in Switzerland) with the ability to order half portions for those who don't eat as much or want to try multiple items. The Lamb Rack...More

My wife and I ate here, drawn in by pictures of delicious lamb. Without a doubt, absolutely fantastic. And all of the amazing food is brought out by an amazing and friendly staff. Top notch, we recommend you finish with the apricot schnapps!

Superb meat. Best in a while - so soft and delicious. Could have done with more veg garnishes and a less sweat sauce but that is a small detraction from this great filet. Wine and service excellent too. We had to their 'house' assemblage...

This excellent restaurant specializes (like many in Zermatt) in lamb dishes. We had entrecote d' agneau (perfectly cooked, rare of course) with a nice red wine and (for me) the salad bar, which had a fine selection of local lettuce types and all the trimmings....More

We had a wonderful dinner at Julen, with each dish perfectly prepared and absolutely delicious. However, it was Bruno that made our evening so special...he took great care of us, helping us navigate the menu and pairing each course with a local wine. Highly recommend...More

Time for specialeaties. Time for Tradition Julen. "Everyone is welcome in Restaurant Julen." That was as important for Meinrad Julen as it is today for the third generation of the family business. In the morning local workers stop by for their coffee break, at noon the traditional cuisine attracts businessmen, families and passers-by, and in the evening the cozy restaurant serves gourmet food based in traditional cuisine. New menus are created daily with love and passion. From the salad bar to beef tenderloin and lamb specialties to the hearty cheese fondue and dessert buffet on Thursdays, the a la carte menu has something for all tastes. Enjoy our carefully selected assortment of international wines. Make sure to reserve a table early!
