I was happily surprised.
The service is extremely polite and efficient. We felt really comfortable. We orders 4 dishes and all of them were excellent.
The gazpacho, a simple soup some might say, was the best I ever had. The salmon ceviche was not traditional peruvian (It was more like a tirado) but refreshing and really well presented.
The mains were just awesome. We ordered lamb (Lammnierstück) extremely well cooked and the portion size was easily 400g. The Vitello Tonnato was the best I ever had, I would just go back to have this dish.
The wine list is well balanced, we orders a Matias Riccitelli Malbec (Argentina), which is difficult to find in many restaurants even in argentina. There was a big variety of Italian, French and Swiss wines.
It is not a cheap place but the quality justify the prices.

Just outside the bustling tourist areas of Bern, under the shady trees of this quiet neighborhood, nestled into a comfortable well preserved house, lies BUNER Restaurant. Charming and quaint, it welcomes you into its relaxed atmosphere by tantalizing your nose with scents that flow upon the gentle breezes. We were greeted promptly and warmly by Julio Da Silva (Proprietor) and showed to our table that lied within the confines of the courtyard / patio area. Under shady trees and wrapped by green hedges - BUNER serves up some tasteful, hearty dishes which are sure to surprise and please. Basking in the relaxing and charming atmosphere, we imbibed in some wonderful wine offerings BURNER has to offer – very good selection! Then I started with the gazpacho which was packed with zest and prepared perfectly. Then welcomed the stroganoff, which turned peoples head and lured their noses as it brought to our table. A wonderful dish which was served gracefully by a friendly and accommodating staff. The dish did not disappoint, it offered up a satisfying taste and portion. I soon noticed that all dishes and entrees that were being served, turned everyone’s eye and caught everyone’s nose. Along with an impressive food offering, this relaxed restaurant offers spacious outdoor seating in a pleasant atmosphere. Inside, you will find a warm and wonderful interior with spacious tables and windows that which allow you to take in the quite neighborhood scenes. A sprawling bar within BURNER offers up tasteful libations and a generous offering of wines. A total experience between the sprawling outdoor seating which is wonderful under the trees and evening breezes – dishes that bring awe and leave you full and reminiscing of the tastes. Desserts which are sweet and compliment the dining experience. Take the time to come here - relax, indulge and enjoy. BURNER is a wonderful dining experience.
Hints: Make reservations for outdoor seating. But take the time in wonder inside and appreciate the tastefully done interior. Come hungry as the portions are of good size. Come early and enjoy some wine and or drink under the trees and or at the warm sprawling bar. Street parking is plentiful. Good for couples, friends, business and solo.
Enjoy & Bon Appetit – CHEERS!

Büner is definitely one of my best discoveries in Berne! Not exactly cheap, but well worth the money. We had a wonderful fish on a sauce that wasn't just yellow but actually contained saffron, and the Wienerschnitzel was excellent (and ginormous), both beautifully presented. The Pouilly Fumé one of the best I've had, and the service was very friendly and competent - we'll certainly be back, hopefully next time when the weather is better and we can sit in that beautiful garden.

You will break the bank if you eat here often, but for a special occasion, Büner is excellent. Whomever you bring here will be impressed.

Creative menu. Perfect service. Great wine list.

They had Bison and Water Buffalo on the menu this time. I did not quite understand how this is possible, but they said these animals are raised in Switzerland. We not only had a great meal, we learned something new.

Enjoy the beginnig of spring and see you soon! With our best regards.
