Restaurant Seidenhof, Seidenweg, Bern
The Restaurant Seidenhof is located in the Laenggass area in Bern. Looking for a bite to eat, it has a lovely garden located under some big chestnut trees giving it plenty of shade. For lunch the place offers six menus all accompanied with your choice of one from four different salads. The waitress seemed a bit overwhelmed by waiting on four good looking men. That’s the only explanation as to why it took thirty minutes to deliver a cucumber salad with yoghurt sauce. It wasn’t worth the wait simply because someone forgot to add salt and pepper to the salad. After asking the waitress to check up on our food since now we were sitting down for 45 minutes finally our main courses arrived. The pork filet was dead on arrival, cooked to an arid texture. Again the vegetables were lacking salt and pepper. The place is probably good to drink beer in the shade but waiting 45 minutes for your main course when ordering from the lunch menu is a joke, especially if the quality of the food is abysmal. The dry pork filet cost a whopping 34 CHF.
