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

We had been talking about trying out the Matterhorn and finally got there while passing through. They have quite a variety on the menu including different schnitzels. There is a good selection of sides to choose from including my favourite, spaetzle. The service was very good and the servers jovial. We will be back.

Not terribly impressed. Food below par... We went at lunchtime and were the only people in the place. Service was still very slow.

Having lived so many years in Switzerland, I am well-placed to attest to the authenticity of the food in the Matterhorn. The owners are Swiss and really know how to fire up local dishes such as veal in cream sauce (geschnetzlets) together with Swiss fried potatoes (roesti) or spaetzli (gnocchi like fried mini dumplings). Can't go wrong plus the service... More

A must go. A family run restaurant on the Main Street of this scenic town one hr. East of Toronto on Lake Ontario. A culinary delight. Melt in your mouth Schnitzels of all varieties. Fresh salads, homemade soup,and many house specials. Affordable dining in a relaxed atmosphere.

The food was great, although a little pricey. There is a lot on the menu to choose from. The service was great. I would go back there again.

There was only one waitress working the night we went to this lovely place but she was so fast and so friendly we loved her and the service she provided. The specialty of the house is schnitzel but we went for the spaetzle. We were not disappointed. With a main course of your choice, you can ask for two sides.... More

We all had different schnitzel. The food and service were excellent. I thought it was slightly over priced but not too bad. I recommend reservations as it got pretty busy. The waitress went above and beyond for us. I love places that are locally owned.

We have walked by The Matterhorn for years when visiting Cobourg and finally ventured in during a recent trip. Atmosphere was very nice, service was excellent and food excellent.
