Zimmermania is an archetype-ish bernese neighbourhood restaurant with good traditional food with some tasty surprises, nice staff and returning talkative guests, which is a good sign. The tarte au citron is not only creatively designed but also delicious!

The restaurant is in the old city but away from the main restaurant area down a small side street. It serves Swiss food. They do not have a menu in English but our server spoke English well enough. I ordered the onion soup which was very good! It was not heavy even though it had a bread and cheese crust... More

Cosy enviroment, friendly staff, good food (I had the entrecote and the wienerschinitzel). For dessert I had a panna cota wich was delicious. Only downside of the place was a lack of an English menu (French and German only). Prices were on the same range as all the other restaurants I've visited in Switzerland (a little more expensive than other... More

Nice table setting with linens, a place for quick business lunches or for maximum 4-6 people. Varied menu at above average prices. Food was good, service not so pleasant. Hidden location in the old town, not so easy to find.

The strangest thing was the weird atmosphere in the 2 rooms. We couldn't quite decide whether it was like a canteen or just some carelessly furnished place. The food was ok but certainly nothing to write home about, the meat could have been anything, the Swiss wine rather bland and non-descript. It is not that this place is outright bad... More

I have eaten a lot here in the past, it WAS good, but slowly things began to change as the old man was no longer able to run the place. He served food that was worth dying for, now, I prefer to reminisce on the memory of the old man`s efforts.

This is one of the best restaurants I have experienced in Bern. I'm surprised not to see it more highly rated . This is fine dining of a standard that would be appreciated in any leading city of the world . I recommend it

Apart from its location in the old part of Bern there is nothing that stands out and makes me want to strongly recommend this restaurant. One disappointment was that my clothes smelled of cooking oil after the visit, not something one would expect after eating in a fairly expensive restaurant. The portions were generous.

Nice location , good service. But a very average quality of food. The price is about 30% to expensive for what they served. I won't Recommended this restaurant to anyone of my friends or clients.
