After a walk in the city, admiring the breathtaking view we had lunch here. We order just the cheese fondue and it was totally worth it.

The 500ml bottles of wine are a... More

After waiting for a while, we were seated. The space is quite tight but we can feel the cozy style. Everyone are having cheese foundant we definately ordered... More

Went here for a casual dinner and were pleasantly surprised by the service, the menu and - why not - also the place. Promoting itself as a bistro bar this establishment provides its customers with a very cosy atmosphere and great smiley and fast service. The food is in line with the tradition but not deprived from a certain ability... More

Visited on a Monday evening (no reservations accepted - we were told there was a 30 minute wait at the bar for a table to become available, but it was only 10 before we were seated). Great beer selection and wide variety of choice on the menu! Our attentive and friendly waitress, Giulia, recommended a great wine to go with... More

After the grand success of Barry's we decided to spend our last night in the Eiger hotel and try another restaurant. Bistro Memory is on the ground floor and is rustic in decor.
