Description: Berns French dining hall opened up in 1944 under a blue-white-red striped marquee in Berns's concert hall. Fernand Gitton, aided by his eight chefs, provided the high quality cuisine. Gitton was known from distinguished restaurants such as Hôtel George V in Paris and Hermitage in La Baule, Bretagne. Bistro Berns opened up autumn 2006, in line with the French tradition. The highly acclaimed bistro delivers high quality food, beverages and service. The pavillion is a natural meeting place throughout the day characterised by its uncomplicated atmosphere and situated in central Stockholm's Berzelii Park. Here they serve French homely cooking with inspiration from all of France. Their succinct wine list represents all of France's classical regions. Bienvenue!

“nice decor shame about the food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

I was disappointed in the time it took to be served and the food - duck breast with sauerkraut -was far too salty and cabbage had the consistency of blanched greens covered in vinegar , the atmosphere was pleasant enough and the decor still charming

“Disappointing.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

Poor service and only average food.

After several requests of the server about what side dishes came with a particular entree. The server did not know the menu and had to check-two separate times because he did not answer the question the first time. (His first response, after checking, was "vegetables") Finally, when we four diners were served the entrees, only three entrees were brought to the table! The server forgot to order the one entree he had answered the questions about. That was his response. He forgot!

The restaurant lost the value of one entree and the server lost a generous tip.

Certainly, not a place deserving of a return visit.

“Popular elegant Bistro”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013 via mobile

Excellent Bistro. Get there early for lunch and an outside table as Swedes tend to eat early. Excellent menu. Friendly staff. Would return and recommend. Make sure you go to the Bistro and not the hotel, easy to confuse as one is in front of the other. The bistro is by the garden.

“A little bit breath of Paris in Stockholm”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

Parisian bistro, but with 'local' flavors.... The salmon salad was absolutely exceptional! Nice café area to enjoy a flute of Deutz Champagne while waiting for a table.
