There's nothing like an unbelievable dinner with an unbelievable view. These dinner spots in Bern will take your breath away for more than one reason.
This is a restaurant that has everything you could possibly wish for: outstanding food, elegant surroundings, attentive service and, of course, picture-perfect views (best enjoyed from the terrace in summer). You would expect nothing less from being in Bern’s premier hotel, where monarchs and presidents come to stay and dine. Chances are there will be Swiss government ministers eating here as well, though you probably won’t recognise them. Most Swiss people wouldn’t either! www.bellevue-palace.ch
A 360° view across the rooftops of Bern, with the steeples and domes punctuating the skyline, and the added bonus of the majestic Alps as a background. The elegant Sky Terrace has an ideal position for enjoying that view, especially on a summer evening. Indulge in a cocktail and mezze-style appetizers while watching the snowy mountains turn pink in the sunset. www.schweizerhof-bern.ch
If you can bear to tear your eyes away from the creations on your plate, then you’ll be rewarded with possibly the best view in Bern: the medieval old town in the foreground with snow-clad mountains behind. Back to the food. Michelin-star chef Jan Leimbach manages to outdo the views with his modern dishes combining Mediterranean flavours with local flair. Every dish is a work of art. www.kursaal-bern.ch
