“Great atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013

I was in the Kornhauskeller Lounge and Bar for drinks with a group of 15 friends. The ancient building Kornhaus was used to dry grains on the first 3 floors. The old wine cellar now holds a nice restaurant with bar and lounge.

The location is absolutely spectacular and the atmosphere is fantastic. The beverage list is impressive, the appetisers were great. Only the service could be better and more attentive.

“Nice lunch, great ambiance...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

Kornhauskeller is a huge grand old restaurant right in the centre of Bern, very close to the Clock Tower.
I had the set lunch which comes with salad, main course of steak and dessert at a pretty good value at CHF32. From the ala carte menu, we also ordered the Grilled Cockerel with bacon, and this is very good too.
We enjoyed the food very much and the ambiance of the place is very nice and the staff service even though is abit slow due to large tour group eating here at the same time, was efficient and polite.
Overall we had a good and leisure lunch here.

“ALWAYS WORTH A VISIT IN THIS TYPICAL RESTAURANT”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

When in Bern you normally visit the Clock tower, the bear pit and the many attractions the old and beautiful city offers. When it comes to put the leg under a table, remember the Kornhauskeller just near the clock tower and go downstair restaurant to feel tha atmosphere of a typical old swiss classic restaurant. We had, like always, the famous swiss dish zürich veal with roesti (wonderful !!!) but many other dishes are ready to taste. Try it ! Is not cheap but worthwile.
Bon appetit !
