Make sure you make reservations early. This is a historical building and they have excellent food. I love their 'anti pasti' open buffet. What is a great deal is also their "business lunch" during the week. Most price below CHF 30 which is an amazing deal! In the evening, if you can, first ask for a table at the bar... More

If you are travelling to Bern, Kornhauskeller is a the "must see". Constructed in Baroque style, the location is beautiful. However, if the quality of food is very good the quantity/price ratio can be improved. For example, the prices are higher my son had "Quadrolini mit Spinat-Ricotta-Füllung" that contained 6-7 pieces of ravioli and cost 26 CHF. It is too... More

The concierge at our hotel recommend this restaurant. What a pleasant surprise to eat in a cellar that is split on two level at decorated with scenes from another era. The tables are well spaced to provide privacy but at the same time a sense on community. I had a beautiful piece of sea bass that was wonderfully prepared. Service... More

In the Old Town area of Bern there are plenty of easy to find, clearly popular dining options. Many of them spill into the street in warm weather and it's obvious the diners are enjoying themselves. Kornhauskeller would not fall in that category. You would have to have read about it, been told about it, etc., as it is two... More

The place doesn't show it from the main entrance! Just a plain see through box with a stair case leading downstairs, but once you go down it is a different world! The place if just wonderful. Amazing decor, great food and the service is one of the best I've had.

We stopped into the Kornhauskeller for a lunch, a little later than "Swiss" time. Despite no reservation, we were seated immediately. As in most of our travels, we tend to order the "menu of the day", which was a fixed price of 28 francs (if we had wanted dessert, it would have been an additional 10 francs). The "kalbsschnitzel "Walliser... More
