Very nice

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.

Ordered the "Tapas para Dos" and we got octopus salad, serrano ham, patatas bravos, beet and goat cheese salad and a chocolate beet cake. Everything was tasty and nicely presented. The staff was really friendly and helpful. The restaurant is facing Bern beautiful Townhall and not too far away from the beautiful cathedral.

I usually love this place. The coffee is generally good, although there's not much in the way of breakfast fare on a weekend morning. It's usually a good local spot where you can settle in with the newspaper and enjoy a quiet moment in a cosy space. Sadly, the last time we visited, we were really disappointed. It's hard to...

This is a great Place in Berne . The Staff is very friendly and open. Unusual for Berne you get in contact with people straight away and can have very interesting conversations. Often a short visite ends in a much longer stay!

One of the rare lucky picks in Switzerland: Friendly, interesting mix of guests (municipal politicians to young mom's to freelancers. Excellent Spanish tapas, friendly serviced and at a fair price. Location in old town, one parallel road from main road, which is good. Away enough to avoid the tourist crowd. And that spanish ham - must try.

We just walked in and decided to eat something - thank goodness we did. Delicious homemade pasta as excellent octopus tapas, and brilliant coffee. We really enjoyed our experience.
