Zermatt restaurants

Thanks - heard all of those were great. Question is how easily can you get in for lunch when you are skiing? Can you just show up like you do at American ski resorts and expect to get a slopeside lunch? Or do you need to make reservations for lunch as well as for dinner. I made reservations for almost every night so far from Dec 21-29th Chez Heini, GramPis, Whymper-Stube, Capri, The Pipe, and Le Grille Cervin.

Zermatt restaurants

Thanks so much for the suggestions. Others have mentioned Chez Heini as well. Any recommendations or info about what is open on the 24th and 25th? Also interested in recommendations for restaurants on the ski mountain for lunch.

Can anyone suggest not to miss restaurants in Zermatt? Traveling there over the Christmas week 2012.

Pre-theatre dinner and other great London restaurants

Thanks for the great pub suggestions. I tried Launceston Place but couldn't get in. Friday 12/30 seems to be a tough booking.

Pre-theatre dinner and other great London restaurants

We are traveling to London next week with our kids and already have a few restaurants booked but I would love suggestions for the following:

1. We have tickets to see Billy Elliot on Thursday 12/29 at the Victoria St theatre and we're looking for a great place to have pre-theatre dinner. We have a 14 and 12 year old but they will eat pretty much anything and we're looking for something that's upscale, trendy and fun.

2. We have a tour planned outside of London and we're looking for a great pub for dinner on the way back from Oxford. Will have a private car and can stop anywhere along the way or as we get back into town.

3. We want a memorable dinner for our last night - staying right near Gloucester Road tube stop but can take the tube anywhere that's not a major trek.

Thanks in advance for your suggestions.
