“Great atmosphere”
Reviewed January 24, 2012

My husband and I love going here. The atmosphere and service are very charming. I also enjoy that the menu is short, yet I could order almost everything on it. We enjoyed the tagetalli with shellfish as an appitizer. The pasta tasted homemade. For a main course we had a whole mackeral with mango salsa and lamb with lentals and veggies. They could have skipped the lentals. The wine menu was also very good. They have a delicious dessert wine! And the coffee was delicious as well. We will return.

“Best cuisine in all of Bern, maybe in all of Switzerland”
Reviewed November 4, 2010

Tried this restaurant on our first trip to Bern, and despite the language barrier (menu only in German and waitstaff had limited English), we had a wonderful experience. The decor is interesting -- sort of shabby chic with animal heads -- nice low lighting. The food was really something, even though the choices for me as a pesca-vegetarian were a little limited. I had an amazing pumpkin souffle, and my chocolate dessert was both artful and incredibly tasty. My husband blindly picked items off the menu, and was also very happy with his meal. The only negatives were that it was a Friday night so they were packed which made the temperature a little high, and slowed the pace of the meal somewhat. Still, I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who likes quality food with a local feel.

“Charming restaurant in quiet part of the town”
Reviewed September 18, 2010

Very charming restaurant in the nice "Laenggasse" quarter of Bern. Very good food and a very warm interior design. The menues are seasonal and the wines are als very good. One of the best restaurants in the city of Bern.
