“consistently excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 January 2012

great location and impressive architecture. The service highly professional yet extremely friendly.
The food is very good and the wine superb, with the very best of Italian wines from i.a. Tuscany, Pidmont and Trentino, kept in a cellar anyone can and should visit. The experience is definitely worth a trip to Bern.

“Nice interior otherwise not worth the high price”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 October 2011

This restaurant is very nice located in the center of the old town of Berne. It is situated inside a big old vine celler. On the balcony surroundigt the big room you can have a drink from the bar and lay arround inthe cozy lounges. Here you'll forget time. A very warm, dark atmosphere almost only light by candles is surrounding you. The walls are very nice painted with old time hunt sceneries. old stone bows are gibing the place an majestetic feeling. the restaurant on the base floor has a good joice also of touristyfood but is overpriced. the service is not worth the rather high price either. beter go for a drink only to see the biggest vin barrel in town. huge golden circle at the end of the room!:)

“Nice restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 September 2011

We enjoyed our dinner at the Kornhauskeller. It was really hot in Bern when we were there, so it was nice to be in the beautifully painted cool cellar. The food was very good and the service efficient and helpful.

“incredible historic old wine cellar and granary”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2011

Old Town Bern, UNESCO site, huge vaulted area in "basement" with old paintings on walls. Great atmosphere, you feel like you're going back in time. I had lovely red wine, good company and can't even remember the rest of lunch!

“Great Ambience - not so good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 June 2011

A great place to eat, such a terrific ambience. The tables are not too close together and the service is really pleasant and helpful. However, the food is not so good - overcooked steak, cold plates etc. If you can overlook this and you are not as much of a foodie as me, you'll probably have a great time here.
