Found the last table on the terrace with a view of Bern. It’s self service so you have to get your own food. Rösti in different combinations are served, you also have other choices but they are famous for the rösti. We all had different...More

The view is terrific, the prices the same as downtown Bern at Migros - and the food quality, too. We didn't have problem finding seats (on a late sunny March afternoon) in a simple but warm and friendly setting. Kids seem to enjoy it, too.

This is a buffet style restaurant. We came here around 930am for breakfast, make sure to get a table right away as 80% of the indoor tables were already reserved, which to me, seems rather silly as we were there for about an hour and...More

Ordered plain Roesti with vegetables; got an oily caked and burnt board of potatoes with dead-cooked ratatouille. Alternative option such as salad buffet was highly overpriced due to animal meats. Simply couldn't find any filling other meal. It is a self-service facility, spacious with nice...More

The Rösti tasted like a premade one you buy from Coop or Migros. It's super greasy and absolutely disgusting if you know what a 'real' Rösti tastes like. People with no taste (about 70% of the population) will love it, though.More
