It has often been my experience in Bern, when walking into a Restaurant, to be greeted by an unfriendly grunt from a bored and tired waiter.

My wife and I lunched at this restaurant just before New Year, so it was very busy. Whilst we enjoyed the food and wine, we were disappointed by the slow service. In fact, we decided not to order dessert for this reason. It is unfortunate that the slow service spoiled what might otherwise have a pleasant experience. Management, please take... More

Went in to dine on a Sunday, when most places around were closed. Nice atmosphere, polite and attentive staff. Food well above average (but not impressively outstanding if that's what you are looking for).

We had a very enjoyable dinner here. The venison pate was particularly good as were the Swiss wines on the wine list. Service was great too.
