“Say cheeeese, and you will not want”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

Heavy on dairy products, fat carries flavour - yes, those mountain cows are working for a good cause. Rösti and Käsespätzle, lots of cream, full-flavoured to say the least. The waiter recommended red wine from Valais, the Swiss wine region with the most autochtonous grape varietals (e.g., Humagne Rouge), and that went down very well. We had a nice table outside - inside was very noisy and you would surely smell of cheese for days to come.
Service was average, and it was pricey, about normal for Berne I dare say. Maybe a good place to go with friends from abroad who need a quick overdose of cheese.

“Worst Service Ever”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

The Lötschberg is a noisy yet ambient restaurant with good quality Swiss food in the centre of Bern. What lets this restaurant down is that the service is terrible. Last night our group ordered Raclette à discretion and single servings of Raclette. The orders were either forgotten or so slow that the all you could eat orders only got one or two servings in an hour. I asked to see the manager and I was told that there wasn't a manger working. So I complained to the waiter who argued aggressively that there's nothing wrong with the service. I don't understand why you should pay CHF35 for one plate of cheese in an hour and then get insulted by a waiter. Either this restaurant has poor wait staff or not enough wait staff. Whatever the reason the service at the Lötschberg is terrible.

“Taste of Switzerland”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012

Was there already a couple of times, and I was never disappointed by the quality of the food (slightly overpriced though...). They got all kind of Swiss food classics (don't go for the Cordon Bleu if you don't like cheese !) and the service is friendly and efficient. I love their salads ! It might get crowded (and loud) on the weekends as it's very popular among young people.

“All Things Swiss”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012

Restaurant Loetschberg is a breath of fresh air in Bern. Sepcializing in Swiss cuisine, they do it in a modern and upscale motif that is a breath of fresh air after all the "traditional" interiors throughout the city. The food is as fresh and delightful as the ambiance. The portions are large and the selection is wide. While the staples of raclette and fondue are present, the menu also includes several othe meat dishes and an enticing array of salad choices. Promoting all things Swiss, Loetschberg has an impressive local wine list, and even offers a Swiss grappa. A great place for some fresh food and ambiance!

“Cheese fondue was the best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

My friend & I went to this place by our Hotel recommendation. And we much appreciated for this advice, as all: food & service & interior - we liked a lot. FYI: better to book in advance.
