Great atmosphere

My husband and I love going here. The atmosphere and service are very charming. I also enjoy that the menu is short, yet I could order almost everything on it. We enjoyed the tagetalli with shellfish as an appitizer. The pasta tasted homemade. For a main course we had a whole mackeral with mango... read more

The ambiance in the restaurant is very nice a mix of shabby sheek and classic. The amuse bouche was survived after the entre which I found a bit strange. I was expecting much more then what was offer. The food was not bad but the price douse not relate to what was served.

Nice original ambiance but too expensive (even for bern) for what they offer. I live nearby and went there several times. You go there for the place not the food.

I ordered grilled veggies and tofu with cuscus and my expectations were not very high. But the quality and flavors of this rather simple meal really surprised me. Everything was perfect: the veggies were still a bit crisp and the cuscus was incredibly flavorful. Bravo.

Tried this restaurant on our first trip to Bern, and despite the language barrier (menu only in German and waitstaff had limited English), we had a wonderful experience. The decor is interesting -- sort of shabby chic with animal heads -- nice low lighting. The food was really something, even though the choices for me as a pesca-vegetarian were a... More

Very charming restaurant in the nice "Laenggasse" quarter of Bern. Very good food and a very warm interior design. The menues are seasonal and the wines are als very good. One of the best restaurants in the city of Bern.

The most charming & welcoming restaurant I've been to in a long time. We can only afford to go for the food at lunchtime, when you just can't beat their price for the quality. At night it's the perfect place for drinks, especially in the summer when you can sit in their romantic, candle-lit garden. We love it & take... More
