This place is beautiful and must be seen in Bern. Just try to avoid a busy day with tourist groups because as you'll wait almost one hour to get your food. The food was excellent and we get free coffee because of the waiting.

Reservation is definitely recommended esp if you are going on a Sunday. I emailed them. They only replied 1 week before the reservation date, so I think they only allow you to reserve 1 week before.
