Beautiful location and exquisite service: Restaurant Schwellenmätteli (24. August 2022)

Since I had to be in Berne anyway, it was time to have a nice lunch. I went for the “beef tatar (spicy, roasted toast, butter)” (CHF 21.50) as a starter, which was quite lovely, but the size of the starter was a bit disappointing. What was great though was the speed and the friendliness […]

A great find but in a suboptimal location: Restaurant Lele (23. August 2022)

A great find but in a suboptimal location: Restaurant Lele (23. August 2022)

I am not sure how to rate the Lele all in all. On the one hand side, the dishes they offer are actually amazingly delicious and super enjoyable, like the “calamari fritti (fried calamari, aioli)” (CHF 17.00) which were much better than I had expected – and they served plenty of aioli, which was quite […]

Quite disappointing compared to the amazing ‘Metzgete’ experiences: Restaurant Falken Wiedikon (22. August 2022)

I have been to the Falken Wiedikon twice before, but both times in the context of the annual ‘Metzgete’. Today was the first time I was visiting the Falken Wiedikon in the context of a ‘regular’ visit. Given I was not that starving, I decided to only go for a main and went for the […]

A relatively unique kosher experience: Restaurant Florentin (22. August 2022)

A relatively unique kosher experience: Restaurant Florentin (22. August 2022)

If you’re interested in a bit of a special lunch experience, you should book a table at the Florentin. What I was not entirely aware of was the fact that the Florentin is a Jewish restaurant, so, imagine my surprise that I was questioned by a security guy when trying to enter the restaurant about […]

An interesting, vegetarian 2 Michelin Star experience: Restaurant Magdalena (20. August 2022)

An interesting, vegetarian 2 Michelin Star experience: Restaurant Magdalena (20. August 2022)

On my Swiss journey to discover Michelin starred restaurants, it was time to visit the 2-Michelin-star restaurant Magdalena, which serves only vegetarian dishes. I went for the “7-course menu” (CHF 185.00) and “half the wine pairing” (CHF 70.00) which seemed like an okay deal overall. Honestly, though, the price is a bit steep for the […]

Perfect for a traditional, down-to-earth lunch in a nice little patio: Restaurant Riithalle (18. August 2022)

Perfect for a traditional, down-to-earth lunch in a nice little patio: Restaurant Riithalle (18. August 2022)

If you are looking for simple Swiss dishes in a simple but appealing atmosphere, then I can definitely recommend you to try the Riithalle. I went for the “simple sausage-cheese-salad (sausage, cheese, salad with cervelat from Zurich and Gruyère cheese)” (CHF 16.00) which turned out to be quite a portion, especially for a starter. I […]

Outstanding Italian cuisine with great service – but also not really a rooftop: Restaurant LEO (16. August 2022)

Outstanding Italian cuisine with great service – but also not really a rooftop: Restaurant LEO (16. August 2022)

Given I was not really blown away by the other restaurant on the rooftop of Globus, I decided to give the other one a try too, and booked a table at LEO. LEO is basically an Italian restaurant which has about the same kind of rooftop experience as the restaurant next door. So, not necessarily […]

Better than expected with attentive service: Restaurant Bank (15. August 2022)

Although I had passed by the Restaurant Bank a variety of times, I somehow never was compelled to enter. It turns out, I should have done so earlier. The Restaurant Bank is actually rated quite well, and is overall a nice location with decent dishes. We went to share a few together, and started with […]
