Ordered plain Roesti with vegetables; got an oily caked and burnt board of potatoes with dead-cooked ratatouille. Alternative option such as salad buffet was highly overpriced due to animal meats. Simply couldn't find any filling other meal. It is a self-service facility, spacious with nice design.

Went here for afternoon drinks and desserts which we had on the balcony with great views. We were really pleased by the quality of the food. Unfortunately, the cleanliness of the balcony eating area was terrible. Although we were there for two hours, not once did we see tables being cleaned, etc. This restaurant which is self-service is not to... More

The Rösti tasted like a premade one you buy from Coop or Migros. It's super greasy and absolutely disgusting if you know what a 'real' Rösti tastes like. People with no taste (about 70% of the population) will love it, though.

The restaurant is nicely located at the top of a hill. The view from the restaurant is beautiful. One can see Bern from top. The surroundings of the place are nice for a walk. The food is good too. Overall, it's a must visit place when in Bern.

"What's in a name?" said Shakespeare...or something like that...on the top of the very attractive Mt Gurten, a little outside Bern, is what one imagines once was a marvellous old 'chalet' --now you will find masquerading in part under the grandiose title Tapis Rouge--which it aint! In truth its an F&B operation run by the ubiquitous Migros supermarket chain! What... More

As befits a Migros "leisure park" restaurant, the self-service Tapis Rouge offers a markedly up-market take on the standard supermarket cafeteria. There is a wider selection (monster bowls of coffee, a range of wines and beers, a grill (if you are there at the right time and it is not too crowded), all offering the Migros hallmark of serviceable quality...

The restaurant is very well located, on the top of Gurten. The food is well cooked, but not a lot of dishes. They have cakes and drinks. The prices are not so high, affordable.

This is a perfect lunch place. Cafeteria style offers the easy selection of lunch items: we picked the salad bar, pay by the weigt. Also got a quiche, it was very good. And a chocolate cake with raspberry, also delicious. We originally wanted a hot dish from the grill, but the line was so long we opted for the hot... More
