Your Entrecôte Fédéral Team


You will find the Entrecôte Fédérale at the place where the ultimate homage is paid to its name: facing the Federal Parliament Building and right in front of the magical water feature on the Bundesplatz square.


In our traditional Bern bistro, we extend a warm welcome in an atmosphere devoted completely to hospitality. This is the place for those who appreciate true values while enjoying a certain je ne sais quoi.


On the ground floor of the Entrecôte Fédérale, you will experience sophisticated Bernese simplicity, while the 1st floor stands for the somewhat quieter, more intimate Bern. And in our terrace area you will find covered and open spaces that present the spirited and lively Bern in Mediterranean flair. On the subject of liveliness: the Entrecôte Fédérale has long been a meeting place for all true connoisseurs from Federal Councillors to bankers to workers.


The Entrecôte Fédérale’s culinary philosophy is based on our firm conviction that perfect preparation of the essentials satisfies everyone’s taste. Quality is the experience – and quality is always in vogue.


With this in mind, we focus on a fine selection of delicacies ranging from meat to fish. The house speciality «Entrecôte Café de Paris» is renowned far beyond the boundaries of Bern. The dishes include home-made «pommes allumettes» and crisp vegetables and salads that we select ourselves or that are freshly delivered from the markets. The meat comes exclusively from a certified Swiss Natura label that has earned our trust: «Suter Natura».

The philosophy of deliberately restricting the range extends to our wine list as well. What counts at the Entrecôte Fédérale is not the wealth of choice but the richness of each wine. Perfectly complementing our menu, of course – and sure to match your personal preferences.


There is nothing like hospitality, authenticity and attention to detail. Together they make up the essence of our passionate endeavours at the Entrecôte Fédérale. Day in, day out. It begins with the enthusiasm of our entire team, continues with the careful selection of ingredients and nurturing the long-standing partnerships with our suppliers – and reaches its culmination when we are able to welcome you here and spoil you. To round off the picture, the Entrecôte Fédérale obtains its electricity from renewable sources.

Entre nous:

Taste is a matter of debate.

Good taste rather

less so.



Thanks to our hospitality, our flexibility and not least our outstanding location, the Entrecôte Fédérale is an ideal venue for events of any kind. Whether wedding receptions or birthday celebrations, confirmations, association meetings or discreet business get-togethers: we offer the setting and culinary programme to perfectly fit your requirements.


The Entrecôte Fédérale has space for around 100 persons (ground and 1st floors), plus around 50 persons in the terrace area. We can serve up to 24 persons separately in the «Bundesratsstübli» (Federal Council Room). We would be delighted to offer you, without obligation, a proposal for turning your gathering at the Entrecôte Fédérale into a wonderfully harmonious event.
