Restaurant details
Good for: Romantic
Description: Marta offers you a place in the historic center of Bern to escape the here and now and embark on a journey of nostalgia. With a touch of a baroque tavern combined with a snug English pub, it provides you with a setting that evokes the cosy feeling of home, yet is full of new and interesting faces. Marta offers simple, regional products with a touch of British charm. She serves first-class coffee, selected beers and delicious wine as well as classic single malts and bourbons. You can even treat yourself to afternoon tea beneath the arcades, indulging in shortbreads, homemade cakes and freshly baked scones. Every now and then Marta will invite you to explore the musical spheres of more or less known singers and songwriters or challenges you with a tricky pub quiz.

Marta is a great place to get a coffee and work during the day, catch up with friends over a week-night beer, or even for a weekend dance party! The style of Marta is cozy and warm with perfect low lit hanging lights, nice tables and chairs to sit at (even a booth at the back end!), and brick walls and arches which really make you feel the underground atmosphere. There are also plenty of tables and chairs outside, and even a smoking lounge in the upper-level of the bar!

Besides the place itself, the staff are super friendly, and multilingual! The coffee is top-notch and the Aare beer on tap is great. They also have a great selection of experimental British beers from BrewDog, all of which are amazing!

I will definitely go back to Marta every time that I visit Bern :-)

At Marta you can get really good coffee and everyday homemade cakes and scones. Also at night its worth a visit. I went there on a Friday night and it was crowded and i liked the ambiance. They also have good beer.

A great place in a nice historical cellar in the old town. We had a nice coffee with a delicious home made tart. Great!
