super nice

It's a nice small place in the old town of Bern where I sometimes go to have a drink before or after dinner. Sometimes I actually had even dinner there, they serve a nice range of tapas, if you're not too hungry it's enough for a light one with a couple of drinks. I like the ambience, drinks are... read more

Expensive, very small, and the ladies at the bar seem to be not very happy to do their job. The tapas? They don't know what tapas are! Nothing special...

Cosy place next to the city centre, with tasty Spanish inspired dishes and great beer. It is mostly frequented by locals for dinner, therefore it's a wonderful way to go away from the traditional touristic environment.

After eating at the restaurant on the other side of the street (average cheese fondue) we looked at the menu and decided to come and eat at Volver the day after. We were not disappointed. It was a cold evening, the terrace was not inviting, but the inside was cozy with many regulars. We had croquetas, the ham, empanadas with... More

we had a fast lunch here. the location is nice because it's in the city center but not on the main street - not crazy crowded and not too many cars around. service is very fast and staff is nice. food is basic but pretty good, and not too expensive.

The beer is always great, as is the wonderful selection of tapas and finally some good sherry makes it to Bern! Often busy (of course)

Popular with the locals, (who seem to be always out) we tried this place based on tripadvisor reviews. Nice tapas, and nice sparkling wine.

Quite crowded always, very popular. Nice atmosphere, good and friendly service. Went there for drinks and light snacks. I think they don't take reservations, which is a pity.
