Next to the north of the Metalli center you will find this small restaurant serving classical Swiss food. Best for dinners because it is dark at lunchtime.

Excellent food, emphasis on wholesome tasty Swiss dishes. BIG portions as well. Fair price. Traditional decor which I personally like. Not the happiest staff I've ever met, but quick service.

We enjoyed a great evening on the 1st floor of the Baeren restaurant with around 40 people. Mrs Widmer and her team went literally the extra mile to make us feel at home.
