A great welcome, convivial atmosphere, pleasant service. The service was timely, the menu, carte was well detailed and the same for the wine.. An English menu was available for those who did not read German. Many serving spoke English as well. A most pleasant atmosphere in a charming location. Would be great outdoors in the summer.

The food is excellent in this restaurant. I recommend spaghetti with prawns and octopus (spaghetti gamberoni et sepia) - my favourite meal! The staff is very friendly - the waitors very funny and professional. It's quite expensive, but really worth it!

Don't miss to visit this great and cozy restaurant when you look for excellent food and a warm atmosphere. Very friendly staff. It's worth to take the walk there. It is located in a quite corner in Bern old Town called Matte. You can take place on the terrace and watch the river. I wouldn't say it is expensive but... More

Went here multiple times for lunch or dinner. Great location, lovely garden and terrace. Food is great especially their seafood and fish. Very fresh and well prepared. Highly recommend the gamba's as a starter and the sole as a main. Enjoy!

This is a delightful Italian restaurant close to the river in Bern. The menu was limited but that was actually preferable as every course was delicious and it took the pressure off ordering from hundreds of choices. We were particularly impressed by the outstanding service. The staff were friendly and the courses just kept on coming. Depending on your fitness... More

It's set right beside the Aare river and the owners have beautiful flowers throughout the restaurant area and on the tables. We were very warmly welcomed .

Nice location right on the riverside, with a terrace facing the river. Friendly multilingual staff, pets are welcome. We had seafood both as starters and as main course - wonderful! Real Italian tiramisu to complete the dinner, and we were most happy to have chosen this restaurant.

As allways the Zähringer in berne did not disappoint us. It's a great restaurant with delicious food. In summertime you can sit outside right beside the river aare. But even if it's to cold to sit outside, inside is cozy and very nice too. Try it it's worth it!!
