“Good for business”
Reviewed April 3, 2013

Kornhauskeller is very suitable for a business dinner in the winter months

There is enough space between tables and most of them are round which is goood for businnes but can feel a littel impersonal.
The wine list as well as the menu changes often has a few seasonal dishes. The antipasti bar is great you can make your own place with as much or as little as you want.
The price is quite high however the quality is up to par.

“Underwhelming food and service”
Reviewed March 24, 2013 via mobile

We were looking forward to a nice leisurely weekend lunch. The venue is nice (in winter - would not go there on a sunny spring or summer day) and in the center of Berne.

We have been to a number of Bindella restaurants, and this one is by far the worst in terms of quality of food and service. Starters were not very inspiring, and both main courses were over-cooked (how difficult is it to do cook seafood-pasta?) and did not taste good at all. I suspect that they were sitting under the salamander for a long time. Which brings me to the service, which was dreadfully slow and unattentive.

I do not recommend this place, and I will go by TA again next time as versus a personal recommendation.

“Great place!”
Reviewed March 23, 2013 via mobile

Must be seen in bern! The entrance is modern, but once you ve go down few stairs, what a surprise! Looks like you re out of the 21st century! I recommend you to have a first drink at the bar upstairs, before going down for a nice dinner. Staff is professional and friendly!

“Beautiful restaurant with slow service”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

Kornhauskeller is a beautiful restaurant with a nice bar. The food is fine. We ordered pastas and they tasted good. The service is awful. The waiters are very slow. We ordered water and they never brought it.

“Royal atmosphere for democratic Switzerland”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

The Kornauskeller consists of a huge bar with a tremendous choice of drinks in the fist underground level where one can pamper in comfy lounges or at the bar and have a view down to the main restaurant which gives the impresion of a kind of late medieval church plenty of old, well preserved paintings. The menu features a great variety of dishes, including fresh seafood! Try the Seafood-Fishmenu served for 2 for 90 CHF, which is truly worth the price once you see how rich the menu is! You won't need any starter or dessert with ist.
