A pleasant surprise, I just stumbled upon this on my way back from the Maison de l’Absinthe. The roasted bone marrow with tartare appetizer was very good and the highlight of the meal. The pork belly that followed was also quite good. It’s a microbrew...but I didn’t have the beer as I was driving so can’t speak to it. Great find nonetheless.More

Staying at the historical hotel de L'Aigle in Couvet with a good restaurant I still felt like a change one evening and thus went to the neighboring village of Môtiers to have dinner at the old market hall with arcades, now the restaurant 'Six Communes'....Sitting outdoors I ordered from a friendly waitress one of their summer dishes (suggestions de l'été), namely 'Ris de Veau (sweetbread) et Chanterelles (mushrooms) fraiches à l'huile de Pépins de Courges'. I didn't see or taste any black pumpkin seed oil though, but plenty of pumpkin seeds. The portion was surprisingly big and good. After that I ordered an 'assiette de fromage' (cheese), served with a figue-pinenuts marmelade on top of an 'ardoise' (slate). Good as well, especially with the 'Tête de Moine', cut in a special way. All this I had accompanied by a small bottle of local white Chasselas wine. During dinner a middle-aged woman in small shorts passed in front of me to sit at the next table, where she started drinking and chatting with friends. No way was I to suspect that she was going to ruin my evening a bit later. Since the place was quite busy, it was not always easy to get hold of the waitress, but finally I managed to ask for an espresso and the bill to be paid by credit card. After filling out a special covid-19 form and getting a happy smile from the waitress for the tip, I left taking a last picture of the buildings exterior, before continuing to walk into the village. Suddenly the woman in shorts came up to me in full speed, screaming like a fury that I had taken a photo of her and of the restaurant, of which she were the owner, and that I should go with her to the police station. I felt as in a wrong movie. First the woman didn't look to me like a 'patronne', since she just had been sitting at a table like a customer, in no way involved with the management of the understaffed restaurant. I also didn't like being treated like a criminal and thus just kept walking further into the village, always with her in tow, pushing, pulling at my backpack, insulting me. For me the behaviour didn't seem very sober and definitely not lady-like. To keep her quiet, I offered her several times to have a look at my photos and that I were only interested in food and architecture. She refused, insisiting on the police station. By the time I had approached the railway station she had managed to gather a bunch of people around her, who all kept walking towards me as in a western. I went up to the man, who seemed like the most responsible, telling him to have a look at the few photos I had taken at the restaurant. He found them all okay, no customers or people to be seen. 'Bonsoir', and they left. Taking the train to the neighboring village of Couvet, I thought that never anything closely similar had happened to me in a lifetime of travelling and in recent years writing over 1800 Tripadvidsor reviews (always with photos). For such a treatment of their customers I will give 1 point.More

We visited Motier, because of the „ Maison du Absinthe“ and after the tour we got hungry. The place is right in the centre of the village and you cannot miss it. The lady, who served us was very sympathetic, the food- colorful und tasty....Not many options for vegetarians, but in this area you kind of get used to it :)More

After tasing the wine next door, we went to dinner. The food is typical, local and fresh. A nice three course meal, followed by a cup of coffee ... with chocolates. A nice time.

Very friendly welcome by the patron. Beautiful old building with a large dining area with plenty of space between the tables and "olde worlde" atmosphere amplified by the wooden beams across the ceiling. We (5 of us) all chose different dishes for starters and the...main course and everyone was very satisfied with the food. I chose a local pinot noir on the wine list and the patron offered me an older vintage for the same price! At the end of the meal, the cook (a lady) came round to shake hands and to ensure that we were happy with the food. We will definitely return.More

Another great visit to that wonderful restaurant yesterday. In the old medieval town hall of the lovely village of Mòtiers, with its great Maison de l'Absinthe Museum and Mauler Champagne - it has a lovely atmosphere, with a choice of the sunny terrasse, with an...absinthe bar made out of an old farm cart, bistrot table or the classy restaurant- a great mixture of old and new. Local absinthe is used in several dishes, in starters, main meal and desserts, for those who enjoy it. The Carte changes with the seasons- and the other day asparagus and Wild garlic featured in several options, as well as rhubarb and strawberries. We had asparagus for a starter with a lovely sauce. OH then had fish with wild garlic sauce and Mauler risotto and vegetables, which was superb. And I had a wonderful lamb kebabs with new potatoe crisps, spinach and other vegetables- with a different wild garlic dip. Delicious. We shared a platter of desserts, a small crème brûlée, fresh strawberry mousse, home-made dark chocolate ice-cream and a small madeleine, followed by excellent coffee. OH decided he fancied a beer, so I had a good glass of local Oeil de Perdrix wine, which again was excellent. Great service- although the staff do not speak much English. Highly recommended. A visit to Mauler 'champagne' in the old Clunisian Abbey, followed by a meal at the Six Communes and an afternoon visit of the fabulous Maison de l'Absinthe makes a fabulous day for a group of friends- and the railway station (a good idea in view of the above) is just 1 minute away- Perfect!More

I had dinner there after visiting the picturesque Val de Travers near Neuchâtel. It is wise to book a table in advance as the restaurant was full (Saturday evening). The restaurant is located right in the middle of the tiny village and a 3-minute walk...from Môtiers railway station. The dining room is nicely decorated and quite cozy. Service was smiling and attentive throughout the entire dinner. However it was slow at the beginning - nearly 45 minutes between my arrival and the starter course! Fortunately service was much quicker afterwards. Food is delicious and the menu leaves much room to Val de Travers and Neuchâtel local products. As starter I opted for the "Terrine de foie gras à l'hydromel" (i.e. flavoured with mead) - unusual and with a delicate taste. As main course I chose the hearty "Grenadin de veau aux chanterelles" - the veal medaillons were perfectly cooked and served with delicious chanterelle mushrooms and homemade tagliatelles. The dessert was a tribute to Val de Travers: a tasty soufflé glacé topped with absinth. Prices are at Swiss standards. I will definitely come back to this restaurant. Toilets spotlessly clean.More

I was there with a friend and I have found it was just a perfect restaurant to have a dinner in the val de Travers, above Neuchâtel. There is the restaurant and the brasserie. At the brasserie, you can get the menu of the restaurant....Service is very friendly and food very tasty. A glass of white wine for chf 4.40, it's rare... The building is also nice and there is plenty of parking.More

That was the cherry on the cake after a day biking in the Valde travers. Actually staying in Fleurier and after Restaurant S was booked out in Fleurier, we opted for the next "good" restaurant in the next village. The place is very warm and...service very friendly. Foodis good and tasty ans wines a perfect match. The place was also full and the atmosphere very warm and nice. We spent such a great evening. Cheers to Jura!More
