Well the coffee was so lovely... More

Located in an old grain storage house on the pier of the river Aare in the old town of Büren a Aare (not Biel, as listed, but near Biel!!). Beautifully renovated modern restaurant in the old walls. Great food, great wines and great service. Expensive, as all good stuff in Switzerland, but the multi-course Italian style meal is worth it.... More
