Bären’s cuisine

In Bären restaurant, the kitchen is a vestige of Swiss tradition, much like the atmosphere in our parlors. While it still has finesse and creativity, the dishes are also very simple, natural, and original.  In addition to the excellent quality, the market-fresh and exquisite products are processed with high-grade standards. This way, the chefs at Bären help preserve cooking and dining as a culture, a passion, and a source of lifelong enjoyment.
