Meridiano is placed at the top of the Kursaal - casino. There is beautiful view of Bern from the terrace. The restaurant is of haut cuisine and expensive like everything else in Switzerland. But if you wish to try apecific and tasty art of food you have to visit this place

The food was very good including the venison and the salmon. Portions were slightly on the small side but at the end we were just right with a dessert or two.... More

My wife and I visited this restaurant on our wedding anniversary. The décor was pleasant and the staff polite. We chose the Tasting Menus, which offered a large variety of dishes to try.

From the restaurant you have a amazing view of the mountains. In summer there's also a beautiful terrace where you can sit outside and enjoy the sun. The restaurant is expensive but also really good!
