“Pleasant lake-side setting, friendly and efficient service”
Reviewed 15 September 2013

We were lucky with the weather and were able to dine on the terrace and make the most of the sunset. Very friendly personnel and efficient service - the food was not fantatastic but up to expectations for this type of restaurant

“Excellent location”
Reviewed 14 June 2013

Recently had lunch at le Silex, siting in the sun, just looking out at the lake. It is a wonderful spot. The food is also very nice. Ate some lovely scallops which were beautifully prepared. Not a cheap lunch but a very enjoyable one

“Exquisite! a little difficult to find but worth looking for it”
Reviewed 3 June 2013

This place is on the lake in a port called Port d'Hauterive. There are no signs, just look up this port and keep driving til you find it. go towards the water down a small alley like road. Park and look for a building with windows on the water and a seating area...again, no signs. You will need to make reservations as it is quite popular but well worth finding. I had the Lamb wrapped in a filo dough (my take on it) with vegetables and mashed potatoes and mashed sweet potatoes. Virgini was our server and she speaks english. This was the best tasting lamb I have ever had. My partner had the scallops which were also as equally delicious. +41 32 725 03 25 for reservations. Also, they have a main formal dining room, a brasserie and if weather permits, outdoor seating.

“Nothing exceptional”
Reviewed 25 July 2012

Sadly, Neuchatel has quite a few restaurants all offering the same else where and because they are well placed they know they get the customers so service is not good. This is certainly not the worst place to eat but you can find better.
