The best cordon bleu in the city. Prices are reasonable. Good draft beer. Working in Sunday evening!

Feeling hungry? Don't have too much monney? You're at the right spot! What about a big, really BIG cordon bleu, freshly made for 25.- ! Melted cheese, nice ham, and served pretty fast! Maybe not the every-week restaurant, but from time to time it's awesome!

Delicious and giant cordon bleus, Wiener Schnitzel etc. at an excellent price. Not a fancy place, but traditional restaurant in the neighborhood. Best value long drinks in town.

Enough food for three on every plate!! If you're looking for good value for money this is the place. It's not going to be a romantic candle lit dinner but the beer is at a price you can afford. The portion size is massive. One night we had burgers. Another we have the cordon bleu - a massive massive meal!... More

The service at this place was dreadful and the food wasn't that good when it eventually arrived. Half an hour for a burger and a schnitzel is bad enough but when the food isn't that hot it's terrible. I wouldn't go back.

The cordon bleu at Tramway is somewhat of a Bern legend, impossible to eat in a single sitting and all 4 of us asked for a 'doggy bag' The service and value are both excellent, the decor is a little outdated but that does not reflect on the quality of the food.

In the 13 years, I've been coming to this restaurant, I never experienced a raise in prices. In here, the time stood still: A very old, dusty pub... a bit shabby and cheap... but still great! If you're looking for a nice ambience and stylish decor, don't bother coming here. You visit Tramway because of the food and the food... More

Three of us went for dinner and were treated well. Excellent Wienerschnitzel and Rosti dishes with huge, gargantuan portions at a reasonable price. Salads were ok. Full bar also well priced for Bern. Service was friendly and adequate. Not at all fancy but would return when in the neighborhood.

We regret eating here. The decor is old and it smells a bit like your uncles sock drawer. The food was just average.
