Traditional Swiss food with very high quality. Very polite and friendly staff who gave me useful recommendations. The price is definitely fair too. I will go there again for sure.

A great place to meet and enjoy the last rays of evening sun outside on the terrace. Meals are good but overpriced: The service by student waiters is friendly and the atmosphere uncomplicated. It can be a bit hectic at times, so book in advance as it can be very difficult to get a table.

We just stopped for a coffee and then we realized we were in a brewery, so we've changed our mind. It's a historic building, a big place and I would say a touristic spot (because it's very close to one of the city's attraction). We've chosen the small "Sampler", with 3 kinds of beer: Helles, Märzen and Weizen, it was... More

Situated at the bear pit end of Bern, along with a tourist office and souvenir shop, the bar area inside was far too noisy for a pleasant sit, so took to the tables outside above the park, river and bear pit for a drink ...since this was a Saturday it was popular with late lunchers, but I needed only a...

We booked this place in advance as it is clearly very popular. The food had some variety to accompany the obvious highlight- the beer! The food was basic fayre but the 3 litre beer tower washed it down nicely.

I love the Altes Tramdepot. For me it has such a great atmosphere, just a buzz where it seems everyone is relaxing and enjoying themselves. It is also helped along by the excellent selection in-house brewed beers and real ales which I personally think are very reasonably priced for a hand crafted product. Whenever I have been there it has... More

I was there for dinner with a group. We were served excellent, tasty, fresh beers. And a nice dinner, which was actually pretty heavy. When we arrived at 8pm, the place was full on a Thursday night.

So much fun on a sunny day! We relaxed at the beginning of a 2 week vacation enjoying local beer, local pretzel sandwiches, and overlooked the river with the famous bear pits. Our waiter was terrific and the food and atmosphere exactly right for a lunchtime respite. The crowd was fun and everyone enjoyed the presentation to our table of... More
