Paradies’ cuisine

Chef Gaston has built a regular customer base in Paradies restaurant through his persistent, careful, and passionate cuisine. In addition to the Wiener Schnitzel and fine fish dishes, visitors are drawn to the restaurant mainly due to the homemade ravioli. In the evening, when Gaston Zeiter's team goes home, the chef uses the empty kitchen to create his signature homemade ravioli. In one evening, up to 600 pieces of ravioli are created. And within the next two days, they are all gone. 

Snowy mountaintops of Zermatt

Restaurant Paradies is located 2090 meters above sea level, surrounded by the snowy mountaintops of the Swiss Alps. This gives the restaurant breathtaking views of the Matterhorn. You can even enjoy your dinner on the outdoor terrace, in the middle of a stunning winter wonderland. The Paradies restaurant can be found after a 50-minute hike via the Winkelmatten from Zermatt. Skiers can reach the restaurant directly via the slope from Sunnegga to Findeln. During winter, the hiking trails to Findeln are also accessible for pedestrians.
