The restaurant is a little hard to find, it's hidden away in a little,, square? The restaurant was not serving food until 6pm but you can sit and have drinks while you wait. The food came out almost immediately after we ordered which was great as we have a 14 month old baby who was getting impatient! The sushi was... More

Thanks to the reviews from other visitors, I did not have any problems in finding the restaurant. The restaurant is quite big, with a smoking area in patio, which is rare to find in Europe, especially during the cold season. The menu is extensive, from simple sushi to hot dishes. I ordered a lunch menu and extra portion of eel... More

I have eaten there 3 times, i liked the food each time, i am noticing though that the service is deteriorating with each time: speed of taking the orders, time to engage in a conversation and explain, friendliness of staff...there is room for improvement. The inside is much cosier than the outside.

If you are looking for theatrical sushi with delightful presentation and variety, this is probably not the place. But, if you are looking for high quality, Japanese food (sashimi, sushi, teriyaki) then this is the place. Consistently high quality seafood in a land-locked country.

The location is a bit tricky to find without internet leading you. But once you've found it, its cool. Outdoor seating area (smoking) and large indoor area (sushi bar and tables). Menu is great in variety. Good price for freshness. Waitress are very friendly! Speak english, german, japanese and thai! Get crowded during lunch hours. Can pick up a box... More

I discovered this Japanese restaurant today. I like the way the interior terrasse is organised. The sushi was very good. The staff is very friendly.

Nice place if you want to eat good sushi and escape from the street crowd. Restaurant is hidden within elegant shopping center, but easy accessible. We enjoyed our meal and ambiance of the place!

Very busy place over lunchtime. Got a seat at the bar observing the chefs. Well - not quite an art how they produced their dishes. I have seen many japanese chefs that take their job much more serious and you see and taste that. The set meal A was ok. Miso very tasty, salad standard and the sushi/nigiri quickly preped... More

Japigo has been one of my favorite restaurants in Berne over the years. The food is always good and although I don't eat fish my husband does and he's always happy with his meals, reason why we always go back. Try the Teriyaki chicken or the beef (can't remember their japanese names), my favorites! We've always been correctly treated and... More
