Central restaurant in the old town. Very charming and funny staff. Food was delicious but very expensive and vegetarian choice is very limited. Good ambiance, but you will smell of food after the visit.

We have stayed on Neuchatel for 2 days, during those 2 days we have tried to eat at this restaurant several times. However each time we tried they refused to attend us saying that the kitchen was going yo close within 15 minutes, though there...were several tables which have not ordered yet and were waiting to order. Really dissatisfied and disappointed. The lunch and dinner schedules on tripadvisor and google were completely wrong and they did not careMore

Me and my partner visited recently - she had the beef and I had the elephant xxl or whatever it was called. Both were really bad - the beef was just overpriced slices of thin beef and the elephant thing was just a a bit...of thin breaded pork. Very very overpriced for what it was. Service was also bad throughout, including having to ask for the bill several times 2/5 is generous.More

Very nice food, very nice old-fashioned restaurant with a "à la française" style! Only negative point could be that we would love to have more friendly waiters.

This was such a lucky find for us as we were looking for a quality lunch as we were passing through town with our family. Beautiful food and perfect service. Thank you for adding a memorable lunch to our holiday

A nice bistro in the middle of the town offering classic Suisse and bistro dishes. We had the plate of the day, which was “filets de perche”, a classical lake dish for this part of Switzerland. The filets were tasty, the atmosphere as in a...bistro (quite noisy) and the service lower than expected having in mind the Suisse standards.More

There is only reason I would go back to this restaurant - the food and mainly for the pig trotters and mussels.Unfortunately, the poor service and air ventilation are my biggest reservations. The waiters are very cold and look unhappy. With my friend, we wanted...to share one serving of the pig trotters (we did order 2 starters) and was very much frown upon by the waiters who wanted to charge us CHF 20 more. After some persuasion, they understood that there was no expectation to separate the one serving into 2 portions for us, they still charged us CHF5 for bringing us an extra plate. I don't really care about the cost but it just shows their inflexibility to adapt to customers' needs and satisfaction.More

This is a fantastic little restaurant decorated like an old French eatery from the 50s (the chef is French). Although the menu is a bit limited the food is excellent, especially the steaks). Best onion soup in Neuchatel and a reaonable selection of desserts. Good...wine list but some a bit pricey.More
