We will go again for sure, but this time for a dinner to check more dishes.

We went there on Valentine's Day and opted for the 3-course meal. Each dish was a treat for the taste buds and beautifully presented. The surprises between the expected dishes were also lovely, especially the sorbet and cardamon pumpkin soup. We have been there several times now and have never been disappointed. It is one of our favorite restaurants in... More

Great location in the former US-consulate in Bern. Nice decoration, old furnitures, a fireplace etc, but the place can be noisy if it's full. The service is nice, the staff very friendly and caring. The food was in general nice but the cold first course was very weird, indian vegetables that didn't taste indian at all. There were too many... More

We went there for dinner to celebrate our wedding anniversary and what a disappointment it was! The food was average all around. The vegetables were uncooked and tasteless (not crunchy and yummy as you would expect at that price range), even the lamb chops, though fresh and of good quality, lacked the main ingredient: love and talent. It seems that... More

Decoration of the food was great and also wein, I could enjoy. However, the main dish(something vegi pancake with risotto and vegetable) was too salty for me. I couldn't it without water. Even though everything was nice, main dish wasn't appetizing due to too much salt. What a pity ! I was just a bit disappointed.

We visited Restaurant Essort with friends for lunch on a beautiful sunny day and enjoyed a fantastic lunch in the courtyard. From the friendly welcome and wonderful service to the excellent food there is nothing to fault in this establishment. We chose the business lunch menu and enjoyed a finely prepared dish of yellow fin tuna with a small salad... More

Friends were kind enough to take us to Essort earlier this week during a business trip to Bern. A most pleasant location and room that work very well. The food really is very good but not “conventional” Swiss (not sure how I would categorize it). The kitchen has a number of daring combinations that are simply superb. We particularly enjoyed...

The restaurant Essort - or "Eating Place" in English - is a very nice restaurant located not far from the Dalhözli zoo and park and the River Aare. The interior is quite modern with nice furniture and paintings. During the summer months, guests sit outside in the nice and shadowy garden. As a starter we had wild Scottisch gravad lachs... More
