Right next to that mountain

Welcome to Stafelalp. We’re a quite legendary mountain restaurant located 2.200 metres under the north face of the Matterhorn. We’re serving classic swiss mountain food with a fusion twist, aiming to make the traditional ways of cooking exciting again. Come for the view. Stay for the food and the drinks. We’re looking forward to meet you.

Mountain food with a fusion twist

At Stafelalp, we’re in love with traditional mountain food… so much that we’re combining old and new to come up with new classics. That’s probably why our menu (and the hot chocolate) is pretty famous among skiers, snowboarders and hikers. How does a Rösti Stafelalp made with caramelised onion and apple, topped with barbecue pulled pork and sour cream sound?

Magic mountain moments

Having that first cold, crisp beer at the end of the Haute Route or coming from climbing the Matterhorn? We’re here to provide the refreshments you need.

The legend of

Originally built as an exclusive mountain hut (imagine having that view), Stafelalp changed into a mountain restaurant as the skiing industry boomed in Zermatt. Since then, hundreds of historical events has taken place here – from epic parties to a dramatic fire in 2018. Now, we’re reopening ready to make more history. Come by and feel the legend.

Exciting times ahead

We’re currently rebuilding and relaunching Stafelalp. For the last three years, following the fire, it has been a provisorium. Now, a new alpine icon will be built along with a brand new menu — containing all your favourites and some new ones of our own. Stay tuned.
