‘Potato’ is a new restaurant in Zermatt that offers a lot more than its simple name.
The humble potato is the inspiration behind this new venue, and is used in the majority of the dishes, but ‘Restaurant Potato’ has a great choice of fine dining options beyond the eponymous starch-based vegetable.
In a prime location on Bahnhofstrasse in Zermatt, ‘Restaurant Potato’ has an emphasis on sustainability and locally sourced products. Most ingredients come from within a maximum 50km radius around Zermatt.
Eagle-eyed visitors may even see the team foraging for plants and herbs in the local meadows or woods.
Choice of menus
At lunchtime, guests can choose from dishes on the à la carte menu while in the evening, diners have the option of three, five or seven courses as part of a surprise menu, which is changed twice a week.
The restaurant also has an impressive wine list, which you can view here.
Also open for delivery
Currently [see the latest situation in Zermatt] restaurants are only open for outside dining, but you can try out the new restaurant’s creations, thanks to online ordering and their home delivery service.
You can try their service by ordering via the Yordi app
