So this review is for the Bellevue Palace Hotel's Vue Restaurant - and what an elegant spot for a refined luncheon or dinner! Of course, there's the great view of the Bern River valley coursing its leisurely way through the city, but it's also a classy dining area with crisp white tablecloths, sparkling tableware, and top-notch attentive Swiss service. (And Swiss tidiness - they collect your overcoats and such for the coat-check so as not to disturb the dining room's appearance with unruly jackets draped all over the chairbacks!) They had a "businessman's" lunch menu that looked good, so I chose that and selected a salmon tartare for an appetizer (fatty and unctuous, deliciously seasoned and garnished); the roasted cod for main entree (excellent); and a refreshing limoncello ice with a fruit coulis comprised of blueberries, ligonberries, and raspberries. A nice strong coffee rounded out the meal. Wait service was great - made you feel like royalty!
