“Whether tourist or local, the Rosengarten does not disappoint”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

There are many ways to enjoy this spot: From its high perch across the Aare river from Bern's old city, perhaps the best view of this medieval hamlet [particularly at sunset] is from the Rosengarten. In the summer, you can stroll among the roses and statuary or enjoy a drink on the terrasse, while children scramble across the adjacent playground. Although we often take out of town guests here to ooh and ahh at the city and river below, don't mistake this place for some well-sited tourist trap: The service is quite good and the food is reliably delicious. If you're just visiting Bern, the Rosengarten is a must-see and if you live here, you'll return many times.

“don't forget the food beacause of the view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

of course this place is always crowded - with such a view over the city and the river. the food is good and the service ok. and if you are lucky to sit inside by the window or outside next to the wall - then the view will make you forget about the food and drinks...

“Nice view and beautiful roses”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

You'll have a lovely view from the rosegarden and can enjoy beautiful flowers. It's especially nice in the spring and summer when the flowers are at full bloom. Walk around and enjoy the peace and quiet atmosphere.

“Excellent location with good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2012

First off the location. The location of the restaurant is just awesome. Sitting outside facing the city you can have the full view of the city from top. It is after a 10 minute walk on the hill, however once you reach there, its worth the labor.
The restaurant is kinda pricey, but again its at par with restaurant at similar locations and view.
The food is good and the service is swiss quality.
Overall a nice and enjoyable place.

“Stunning view, good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2012

This restaurant is worth a visit at any time of the year. The view is stunning, the atmosphere is wonderful, and the food is good. Make sure you are seated outside in the summer, and by the window when it is colder.
