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... More

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.

Great Place.I love everything about it from the Interio to the Atmosphere to the Staff,their Drinks and Tapas. Everything is done with Passion and Happiness. The Crowed is mixed,from fine dressed Men&Women to Students and the daily Worker that meets his Mates for a after work drink. Professional,comfortable,stylish and clean. Hasta Pronto Volver!

An array of delicious tapas, a cold beer, kind service and outdoor seating with a scenic view -- what more can you ask for?

If your are looking for a relaxed cafe with light snacks ... here you get it. Out of the main tourism stream of Bern but anyway on a historical place. Seats in- and outside available. To recommend are the self made cakes for a afternoon tea or cafe.

So this bar serves good but pricey tapas. The location is good and during summer nights it is really nice to sit outside on the old school garden furniture. The bar is good and serves well composed drinks. Service leaves nothing to complain about except that it can be crowded on certain evenings. But after you have a glass of... More

We've been strolling around to find a nice place to have brunch on a Sunday - this was the perfect place! Nice atmosphere, lovely staff, good, fresh food and very satisfactory choice for the brunch (not the usual sausage-eggs-... but rather different varieties of bread, Spanish hams, Swiss Cheese) etc... Would have loved to have some more fruit selection, but... More
