Reopening of the Fondation Beyeler restaurant with a new design, new cuisine and under a new name
The Fondation Beyeler restaurant "Beyeler Restaurant im Park" opens under a new name. The Spanish design studio Casa Muñoz has designed the guest rooms of the Berower Villa including the restaurant and fireplace room in such a way that a stimulating dialogue develops between the historical character of the house and the contemporary interior design. Under the new management of Helen Dienel, the culinary concept has also been revamped.
The menu allows guests to choose between an a la carte menu and an constantly-changing lunch menu. A large selection of cakes is available to accompany coffee, which, in future, will be prepared in barista quality. The kitchen serves hot delicacies until 5 pm. The wine list is based on the surrounding area, but also offers a good selection of wines from the regions from the rest of Europe.
Open every day, 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.

Overlooking the sculptures
The villa in Berower Park, overlooking the sculptures of Ellsworth Kelly and Alexander Calder, was the starting point for the design concept.
The dining room
The jute-covered walls, a tribute to the original use of the villa as a summer house, are painted in the dining room with lime white paint and in the fireplace room in light lime green, which ensures a homely atmosphere and good acoustics.
The fireplace room
In addition to the design, the design concept also focused on the usage possibilities. In the fireplace room, through which guests will enter the restaurant in the future, a flexibly positioned bar designed by Casa Muñoz, acts as a central visual element. It is clad in copper pipes and covered with a black and white grained marble. In summer, the garden continues to provide an inviting atmosphere for eating and lingering.
Wall of books and editions
The central element is a variable wall of books and editions, which serves as a showcase for Fondation Beyeler’s exhibition catalogues, literature and artist editions, accompanying the museum's exhibition programme.
