We visited this restaurant with some friends. The waitress was extremely rude and barely spoke English or French. She refused to let us split the check despite the fact that you can input a custom amount into the card reader. Disappointing.

We stopped here for a beer after a lovely day in Bern. The waitress was rude and unwelcoming. We were hurried out when we didn't order a second drink. Not the nicest experience which is such a shame a Swiss hospitality is usually so warm.

We had lunch with my parents on the terrasse and it was nice. It though it would be more touristic because it's in the city center. We had a reasonable good quality for a good price. It's basic but very acceptable.

We are use to fondue restaurants that have a variety of meat, cheese and chocolate options. We were somewhat surprised when we sat down and discovered their only option was cheese. That being said, we had two different kinds and they were both fantastic. Service...More
