This is a cozy restaurant with Spanish cuisine, the staff is friendly and helpful. I recommend tapas for two because it includes almost the entire meny, and the food is nicely decorated and tasty. Great place to chill out in Bern.

A cool and cozy place with good quality food and a decent wine selection. Not exactly cheap, but still reasonable for the quality you get. The bar staff keeps a good balance between cool and friendly. :) Unfortunately they do not accept reservation and on most evenings the place is quite full by 8pm.

Great atmosphere. Service is friendly but if you're in a hurry go directly to the bar to order. Sometimes they do not accept card so be prepared to have cash. There is an atm just around the corner. A place where the cool people hang, or so it seems. Delicious tapas but some dishes are a bit over priced. Cozy.

First we sat outside, no one was coming.. So we figured to go inside and ask. The girl said they don't serve outside. Okay, so we went inside. Inside we were the only couple. We waited for a few minutes, but the only girl serving didnt ask us anything. So we asked her, and she replied they don't serve tapas... More

I didn't stop here for tapas but just for a break in the afternoon. The service was really poor - no welcome, no offer to help - we were completely ignored even though we clearly weren't sure if we were meant to order at the bar (given their disinterest) or sit down to be served. The tea wasn't good -... More

It's a nice small place in the old town of Bern where I sometimes go to have a drink before or after dinner. Sometimes I actually had even dinner there, they serve a nice range of tapas, if you're not too hungry it's enough for a light one with a couple of drinks. I like the ambience, drinks are good...

Expensive, very small, and the ladies at the bar seem to be not very happy to do their job. The tapas? They don't know what tapas are! Nothing special...

Cosy place next to the city centre, with tasty Spanish inspired dishes and great beer. It is mostly frequented by locals for dinner, therefore it's a wonderful way to go away from the traditional touristic environment.

After eating at the restaurant on the other side of the street (average cheese fondue) we looked at the menu and decided to come and eat at Volver the day after. We were not disappointed. It was a cold evening, the terrace was not inviting, but the inside was cozy with many regulars. We had croquetas, the ham, empanadas with... More
