Excellent food and service. The atmosphere is really familiar. Very enjoyable evening. Very good menu with swiss and german dishes. They also brew their own beer here which is magic.

Cosy place nicely situated close to the "Bärengraben" and Nydegg bridge with a superb view overlooking Bern (if you sit on the terrace). Food is well cooked and plenty with fast and attentive service. Especially interesting for beer-lovers, since they brew their own beer.

Super nice place inside, with a great terrace and views (that unfortunately we couldn't enjoy because of the weather). It is a bit touristic but ok

I have been here many times and I think Altes Tramdepot is a must visit for any tourist, both for food, for beautiful interiors and for the spectacular views of Bern from the outside deck. The Restaurant offers good food and an excellent selection of their own beers. Without any doubt, this is one of the place in Bern to... More

As the name suggests, this restaurant is in a converted tram depot which gives the place a lot of character. There is a small bar area and then a large restaurant area. We were there for a midweek lunch. It is a lively place with tables set out in long lines, so it has a very lively and sociable feel.... More

Even though the restaurant is a tourist attraction, locals and tourists sit together at the same table. No dissapointments, but also not a highlight. Worth a visit for the beer and view.

We had sausages, schnitzel with mushroom sauce, and roschti. Everything was wonderful. Lots of big communal tables. Great view of old town Bern from the window or porch. Best of all though, was the beer. The regular taps are great. And the special beers were superb (we had the white widow and were very impressed).

Altes proposal is a wide menu with local dishes and some proposals that mixed international food. Good quality and reasonable prices. Local beers and a fast and kind service complete the proposition.

Came here for dinner on a Sunday after swimming in the Aare all afternoon during the summer. We had no reservations, and the restaurant was all booked up, but got a table under the condition that we finish in time for a later reservation to have the table. The service was prompt, and there was more than enough time for... More

Nice location and ambiance. Good beers. But any person who actually lives in Berne knows not to eat in there, because the waiters are rude and the food is terrible. I get the impression they don't care what the guests think...as most of them are bus loads of tourists who're just in there coz they were dropped off by the... More
