I was there with some friends for lunch. The weather was excellent and we could sit outside. This was very nice. The food was ok and on a fair price.

Small and intimate restaurant meets you at the door with a heavy cheese smell. I tried the fondue, with was good but of course very heavy. It was too much to eat (and I usually eat a lot). We struggled a little with the menus which were only partly translated. The service was friendly and efficient.

I've had fondue in a few restaurants around Bern, and honestly, it's usually not very good. Even the non-touristy places don't seem to get it right. And don't even bother trying it at someplace like a ski resort -- it's almost guaranteed to be terrible. I'm happy to say this place is different. My local friends tell me they have... More

We were walking around Bern one evening and decided to try this restaurant. I ordered the goat's cheese salad which was presented unlike any other salad before, with this lettuce on the side and goat cheese off to the other side and sweet potatoes mixed in between. I I washed the salad down with beer. The prize was 33 Euro.

Loved this place, gives a sense of time travelling into a classy time period. The mood of the restaurant is just right.

... this is Moleson's credo. I am from Bern myself and this is one of my favorite restaurants in town - be it for a date with my husband, dinner with my family or catching up with my girls over dinner. Their dishes are inventive, some of them are even vegan! The atmosphere is nice and the service is good.

Description
In Berne's traffic free Aarbergergasse quarter, just five minutes from the parlament house and main station, lies the Gourmanderie Moléson. The gourmet menu entices you with real culinary pleasures. Grandma's market fresh meals with Swiss veal Cordon Bleu, Emmentaler rack of lamb, French free range chicken, AOC certified Charolais beef and SwissPrimBeef, fresh seasonal fish, Scottish Salmon (certifed Red Label), certified AOC swiss cheese fondue AOP from Gruyère and crispy Alsatian pies. All our meat comes from animals that were raised in their correct natural environment. All dishes are prepared from start to finish in our kitchen including our desserts. We are proud that all of our meals are prepared without any factory products. The restaurant is devided into three separate dining spaces where all meals are served. Experience the ambiance of a classic Brasserie in the Gourmanderie. The Petit Moléson swings with the rhythm of a Parisien Bistro. The Greyerzerstube with its original old wooden finish is perfect for bankets with twenty to thirty guests. In the summer time, enjoy your meal under large umbrellas on grand oldstyle furniture and feel the atmosphere of a Bernese old town street. Our place is the meeting point for local politicians, artists, business people and romantic connaiseurs. In Moléson you don't eat, you feast! Bernie & Sue Hüsser, Denis Vrankulj Assistent Manager, Sarah Ascone Assistent Manager, Conrad Wipf, Executive Chef and the Moléson Team
