The building and dining area are nice. Outdoors would be great -not occupied due to rain today. We sought out a restaurant with good food but off the tourist map. This was it for sure. Love being in a restaurant with only local people. But the food was very basic - we've had the same in a cheap German restaurant... More

I was happily surprised. The service is extremely polite and efficient. We felt really comfortable. We orders 4 dishes and all of them were excellent. The gazpacho, a simple soup some might say, was the best I ever had. The salmon ceviche was not traditional peruvian (It was more like a tirado) but refreshing and really well presented. The mains...

Just outside the bustling tourist areas of Bern, under the shady trees of this quiet neighborhood, nestled into a comfortable well preserved house, lies BUNER Restaurant. Charming and quaint, it welcomes you into its relaxed atmosphere by tantalizing your nose with scents that flow upon the gentle breezes. We were greeted promptly and warmly by Julio Da Silva (Proprietor) and... More

Büner is definitely one of my best discoveries in Berne! Not exactly cheap, but well worth the money. We had a wonderful fish on a sauce that wasn't just yellow but actually contained saffron, and the Wienerschnitzel was excellent (and ginormous), both beautifully presented. The Pouilly Fumé one of the best I've had, and the service was very friendly and... More

You will break the bank if you eat here often, but for a special occasion, Büner is excellent. Whomever you bring here will be impressed. Creative menu. Perfect service. Great wine list. They had Bison and Water Buffalo on the menu this time. I did not quite understand how this is possible, but they said these animals are raised in... More

My husband had been here before with his colleagues for lunch but it was my first time. I was pleasantly surprised! I loved the bistro atmosphere and we were seated at the back room with the jade green wall with the black and white picture frames and the throwpillows on the seats. The opaque windows had wine bottles for decor... More

I have been at the Buener two times and the food is superb. They have a good selection and saisonal specials. It is quite pricey though and the service doesn't pay the needed attention. For every dish something was forgotten. The drinks didn't come and water wasn't filled up. The nice room, food and time made up for it.

I think this place is actually called Buner. It was good but not as good as I was expecting. We stayed next door at the Alpenblick and were intrigued by this restaurant. It has a very nice outside patio area and a smooth and cool interior. The staff were very friendly and we got a late table on a Friday... More

I had not eaten there In a while, and my wife never had, so we were not sure exactly what to expect. What we found was a warm welcome, genuinely friendly, attentive service, a nice if not extensive menu, good wine choices (even by the glass), imaginative pairings of ingredients and presentation, and very well prepared food. My wife's lobster... More
