I came here with my family from Puerto Rico. The service was friendly and quick, everything we order delighted us and as Spanish speakers was great to find a place to order in Spanish.

The restaurant might look pokey from the outside, but once inside it has a very cosy. The ables are laid simply, the staff was very attentive an knew what they were doing. The menu is short with no elaborate dishes but what they do, they do very well. The Portuguese white was very moreish. We haven't been there for ages,... More

We felt like fish. Something Mediterranean and fresh. So we headed for Commerce , about 300 meters away from the Bear Park. Ordering was easy, they accommodate tourists and thier fumbling Swiss talk. We arrived promptly at 6 pm and found it empty, don't let that fool you, a few minutes later families and regulars will take thier places, so... More

It is difficult to know whether the owner wants to make a statement or, is just not prepared to modernise. It has the feel of ancient starch and simple foods served by people who are stuck between two different Centuries. It is clean, food is clinically good and exactly the same as my mother-in-law ate 30 years ago. God bless... More

This unassuming restaurant serves, without a doubt, the best Spanish and Portuguese food in Bern, and probably the region. The restaurant is steeped in history as it can trace its roots back to the 15th century when the premises were used to bake bread. It became a Spanish restaurant in 1947 and added Portuguese dishes after a change in proprietors... More

My prawns were grilled to perfection and some of the best I have ever eaten.My partners chicken was juicy and succulent and the waiter said he would bring the other half later. We thought he was joking as... More

We had dinner at the Restaurant Commerce in downtown Bern. For many years, this restaurant is an institution in Bern with a long tradition. The atmosphere is very special, informal, not complicated, café like. The menu list presents a nice selection of spanish and portuguese dishes. We had squid as first course and the Marinera (Paella with seafood) as main... More
