“Best meal this year”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

Stumbled on this restaurant in Bern, it was away from the main Tourist strip and full of locals (a good sign). They easily accommodated our poor German and provided a menu in English; the waitress was also excellent and coped well. Overall, the staff were all very good and polished; service was excellent and included an ability to cope with food intoleranceswithout effort. The food was modern interpration of classic dishes: veal escallopes, glorious rabbit, melt in the mouth scallops. Presentation was superb and intricate, the detail in each dish being obvious; this did leadto a wait between courses. A good wine list and a recommendation matched the main dishes perferctly.

“A very nice place”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

We went in a group of five. The table was ready on the terrace under the tree. A properly set table with white wine, red wine and water glasses. The bread and the olive oil for dipping it in were delicious. The staff were excellent without overdoing it. The owner could be observed helping to set the tables and throughout the evening was always around. Everybody was happy with the food and the wine, 3 courses with pork belly, calf's ribeye and dessert, one party had the guinea fowl. An overall very successful evening with one slight drawback: the calf was prepared with the slowcook method and could have done with a little bit more time, alternatively better cutting knives would have done the trick too. The bill for 5 came to CHF 750.00 (5 aperitif, 5 three course dinners, mineral water, 2 bottles of wine, coffees, brandy etc.), . It might sound a lot for some but was well worth it and shoudn't make one shy away from it.

“Excellent Food and a Relaxed Location”
Reviewed 31 May 2014

Casa Novo offers excellent food in a relaxed location of Old Town Bern. Although the menu is limited, the food is expertly prepared and delicious. Likewise, it is somewhat unique with items like Oliven Risotto and Bärlauch-Kartoffelstrudel. The service was superb and if you like a digestif after dinner, the selection cart will be mesmerizing.

In spite of all the positive comments above, it felt as though something was missing. Perhaps it was the blank walls that created a rather clinical and sterile atmosphere as opposed to something warm and inviting. In sum, the food and service was exquisite, but the ambiance a bit cold.
