The best of gastronomy made with passion

Who says Bern is a boring city full of government employees? It's anything but that. Bern is a city of culture, sport and enjoyment. The Meridiano is the culinary pièce de résistance of the capital. The Guide Michelin acknowledges that.

We provide a full experience: culinary delights, individual service, first-class wine list, breathtaking view.

Lunch in the Meridiano

Smaller, leaner and usually faster, but still worthy of its Michelin star and points: lunch in the Meridiano. You are welcome to join us whether for a private or business lunch. You can choose between two or three courses. A midday gourmet experience. 

Dinner in the Meridiano

Bigger, more generous and usually longer: dinner in the Meridiano. From four to eight courses, the rest is up to you. We also have the right wines to accompany your meal. Give your senses the Michelin star experience of an evening.

At home anywhere in the world, but with Swiss roots

Chef Fabian Raffeiner thinks globally and produces locally. That's because sustainability and the finest gastronomy go together at the Meridiano: handpicked garlic, freshly plucked spruce shoots. Hence the label "Ächt Schwiz" meaning ingredients from selected Swiss producers. 

We are passionate about our product - we look forward to welcoming you!
