Best drink before dinner and apres dinner and apres skiing. Philippe the owner is a great chap who can stir any cocktail you fancy. Nice range of whiskey, champagne, best gin&tonic in Zermatt. And also great music they play here.

Discrete and stylish little place just off the church square. Welcoming and friendly atmosphere. Fine dining with good wines in an old world setting. Probably one of the few places in Zermatt that serve fresh oysters daily.

A small but cozy bar to meet up in to share stories of the day. Dinner also available. It has been around since the 1950's which gives it a feel of soul.

A great bar where you would go for a quieter drink rather than a raucous apres ski moment. The staff were charming. The Swiss wines we had on both visits were a revelation.
