Excellent, creative, well cooked food served with style in a nice old room. We had the hunters menu (le menu chasseur), a 5 course meal, which was excellent, tasty and well balanced. The staff was friendly, efficient and helpful. The restaurant is located in a nice old hotel near the center of Neuchatel. The lake is near by and invites... More

Beautiful old palace in pretty good shape, high ceiling dining rooms, excellent service. We had a menu degustation which was overall (very) good, with a very nice surprise dessert. Surely not for a frequent visit, but should you have a special occasion to cellebrate when in the Neuchâtel area, restaurant du Peyrou is surely a very good choice

Fantastic restaurant for a special occasion. Each dish more beautiful - real work of art! The decor is beautiful and service impeccable. Pricey, but worth it!

The setting of this restaurant in probably the most beautiful building of the Louis XVI period in Switzerland is stunning. So are the products from the kitchen: Beautifully presented and perfectly executed, with some sublte undertones of "molecular". Add a competent sommelière and waitress - and you had the perfect evening out!

Located in a most beautiful historic mansion, the restaurant occupies two levels of the house. Manicured gardens.The ground floor has a very good looking modern decor and the first floor consists of several richly decorated classical rooms. Excellent cuisine by the Australian chef. Very effective and friendly service.

Excellent restaurant in a historical palace with different rooms and also à la carte and set menu. Dishes are very well presented and the cuisine is absolutely marvellous with French style preparation. Expensive, but you can visit it for a lunch

Du Peyrou was immensely rich and a close friend of Jean-Jacques Rousseau. In 1858 the city of Neuchâtel bought the mansion and restored it to its former glory. Today Le Palais du Peyrou... More

We went there during the Australian week. The restaurant is good but it fits its range of price (considering the fact that it is in Switzerland of course!). The food was good and well prepared, the menu was original. The staff is careful and nice but there is a little something missing to feel the same atmosphere as in 1... More

Great setting notably in the summer with a beautiful outside dining area. Original menus with different fusions..... the best assortment of cheeses and some award winning wine definitely an option to be considered for a formal night out....

We sat outside on a very warm night. The service was excellent and judging by the way they dealt with young children at the table next to us this is a great place for families too. The food was exceptional and Craig, the chef, came out to speak to all the customers after service. This was a lovely and little... More
