Consistently good

Japigo has been one of my favorite restaurants in Berne over the years. The food is always good and although I don't eat fish my husband does and he's always happy with his meals, reason why we always go back. Try the Teriyaki chicken or the beef (can't remember their japanese names), my favorites... read more

Very busy place over lunchtime. Got a seat at the bar observing the chefs. Well - not quite an art how they produced their dishes. I have seen many japanese chefs that take their job much more serious and you see and taste that. The set meal A was ok. Miso very tasty, salad standard and the sushi/nigiri quickly preped... More

The place is a bit hidden at the end of one of the numerous passages of Bern's arcades (though during the summer, a take-away sushi cart in front gives an additional hint). Modern and efficient setup, but expect no oriental charm. The menu is quite efficient, concentrating on essential basics. The 23 CHF lunch menu is relatively good value (for... More

Japigo is a popular and excellent sushi restaurant located just off the Marktgasse in Bern (middle of the shopping district), which offers a very wide selection of sushi, sashimi, and some Korean and Japanese specialties. Although the location isn't by any means charming (although the inside seating is somewhat more upscale), there is no doubt that since the unfortunate and... More

we went there on a Saturday. The place was quiet and the staff not busy. The waitress we got was really not friendly, quiet cold like she was didn't really want to do her job. At the end, we got one waiter who was more friendly but we had to wait a while before getting the bill, like we were... More

From an amazing starter of tuna carpaccio with chilli sauce to the rude waitress mentioned below (almost worth the trip to witness her snarling) to some fairly tired and heavy vegetarian sushi to some good spring rolls to an eye-wateringly expensive bill......don't quite know how to rate it. For a country so far from the sea, not bad i guess

For those who like Sushi: try this one! I went there twice and I was always highly satisfied. The place is clean, the fish is fresh. Definitely to recommend.

Plain tasting sushi. Atmosphere of a train station waiting room. Prices of a classy restaurant.

Food and service are average but not outstanding, prices are quite high for such a simple setting. Conveniently located in the city center.

We had a very nice meal here. The food itself is quite expensive, but was very tasty and service was great. Will definitely go back again for sushi. (We had only sushi, it was represented very nicely on the plate as well as being carefully made) It is nice to see the people making your sushi, like in a typical... More
