Very impressive interior, like a gothic church set in a basement. We were part of a works group on a set 3 course menu so didn't get a chance to explore wider menu. Food we had was well cooked if basic. Service was quite slow and they struggled to cope with larger group, waiting 30 min for order and first... More

Made a special re-reoute to revisit this wonderful location after their renovation. Had wonderful memories of traditional, classic swiss cuisine, every course had a wow factor in 1989. Sadly, we were very disappointed. Times have changed for the worse. We never even got salt and pepper, or a bread basket or quick attentive service when the restaurant was empty. Our... More

Worth visiting during winter ,decoration is very nice! Once you arrive from the cold streets in a typical day in Bern ,you'll be happy to have a warm dish in a confortable place once used as a "keller"! Guess what it is!

I take all my guests here.... it is a stunningly beautiful, historic and unique location for a special lunch or dinner. The ambience is magical! The Kornhaus (granary) was initially built, between 1711-1718, to store grain and wine. It fell into disuse as a storage facility at the beginning of the 19th century. After operating as a tavern, it was... More

Very authentic atmosphere, tasty food and good service. It is probably a little expensive compared to other restaurants in town, but you should try it...

Everything was perfect! We really appreciated the atmosphere! The food was very good and the service excellent. My little niece was charmed by the young waiter who gave her the possibility to draw while waiting for her plate

We went for a business dinner with a large group. The atmosphere of the restaurant is excellent, with great setting of a high celling. Inside of the cellar is actually far better than the entrance hall. It is slightly pricy but worth for money.

We came here for lunch, and ordered the medium sized antipasti dish and the pepper steak. All of the food was very good, albeit a bit expensive. Place was packed on a Sunday afternoon at 12:15.
