Not the sort of place I would regularly visit due to the price and lack of elbow rom. However, the service and food was excellent but needs to be because it is not cheap. overall I would recommend it to people who enjoy good food and wine and are willing to pay for it.

What a delightful evening. Spectacular food and service. The staff were very attentive but without being a shed of bother. Me and my daughter had a grand time. Superb...

+Friendly dinner in a nice location, inside/outside ambiance comfortable, dedicated space for smokers, food was great - main dish fantastic quality and taste. Staff/service was friendly & good - no english/french menu, staff can speak little french - for high end restaurant in a capital, it could be improved. Desert was proposing too many tastes - all good but certain... More

The menu is limited but give enough choice to please everyone. Service takes well care of all guests. Vegetarian offering is good. Much space between the table which allows privacy. Many parkplaces available.

Great experience, every small detail of dish was perfectly organized. Great combination of different tastes. We were there just for a lunch (I recommend to check daily menu first before coming) but pleasantly surprised. Stuff is friendly and polite. We will go again for sure, but this time for a dinner to check more dishes.

We went there on Valentine's Day and opted for the 3-course meal. Each dish was a treat for the taste buds and beautifully presented. The surprises between the expected dishes were also lovely, especially the sorbet and cardamon pumpkin soup. We have been there several times now and have never been disappointed. It is one of our favorite restaurants in... More

Great location in the former US-consulate in Bern. Nice decoration, old furnitures, a fireplace etc, but the place can be noisy if it's full. The service is nice, the staff very friendly and caring. The food was in general nice but the cold first course was very weird, indian vegetables that didn't taste indian at all. There were too many... More

We went there for dinner to celebrate our wedding anniversary and what a disappointment it was! The food was average all around. The vegetables were uncooked and tasteless (not crunchy and yummy as you would expect at that price range), even the lamb chops, though fresh and of good quality, lacked the main ingredient: love and talent. It seems that... More

Decoration of the food was great and also wein, I could enjoy. However, the main dish(something vegi pancake with risotto and vegetable) was too salty for me. I couldn't it without water. Even though everything was nice, main dish wasn't appetizing due to too much salt. What a pity ! I was just a bit disappointed.

Thank xxxiyuni
