After spending half a day up at the Klein Matterhorn, we were all quite chilled (it was – 12 degrees there) to the bones and also felt the after effects of low air at that height. Hence we decided to finally move downwards and have some hot lunch. Tanya had already made reservations for all of us at Restaurant Furri in Furri; so we first took a ski lift and then a gondola and got off at the Furri station. From the station it was a quick walk to the Restaurant Furri.
This again was a family run restaurant and built-in a traditional chalet style with wood. The views around the restaurant were beautiful with snow-covered hills, small villages and autumn colors all around.
The interiors were of wood and wrought iron and gave a very quaint and homely feel to the whole place. We however were too cold to notice anything else at that time and were just thankful to be indoors. And then the awesome hot vegetable soup arrived and one spoon of it spread an instant warmth through us; and we were all convinced that it was the best soup that we had ever eaten. We then tried a cannelloni pasta that was really delicious and the portions were huge. Though we didn’t try the desert, they had quite a variety and I am sure they must have been great too.
In terms of food options, Restaurant Furri has quite a few options for everyone even for the vegetarians and I am told they are famous for their local dishes.
Based on my own experiences, my verdict on the restaurant is as follows –
- The food (both the looks and taste) was very good and the portions were sizeable.
- The service was quick and efficient and they accommodated us on all our requests.
- I loved the fact that they had numerous options for vegetarians, especially for the likes of me, who don’t eat egg and fish either.
- After our meal, they even let us linger for a while without ordering anything.
Overall a good restaurant and definitely recommended to everyone to plans to travel to Klein Matterhorn.
