“Charming, different”
Reviewed 1 June 2013

We knew this place before it changed hands, and the refurbishing is a great success - lovely, airy room (and the terrace would have been perfect if it wasn't raining).

The menu is interesting and varied, and included fresh lake fish, fish carpaccio, but also roast beef and fries, steaks, and a daily special (looked excellent also - it was lamb shank when we were there).

Our grilled fish was superb, with a good selection of vegetables (which were, however, rather bland and could have used even a shake of herbs or a drizzle of oil). The fries (men, eh?) were superb (because I had to steal a few).

Good choice of wines by the glass, by the carafe or in bottles at fair prices for Switzerland.

All in all a pleasant experience, with helpful staff. A place to go back to, most definitely.

“Superb evening!”
Reviewed 30 March 2013

Used trip advisor to select this restaurant as their partner restaurant is rated number 2 in the complete list of restaurants in Neuchatel. Quite a small restaurant and menu but the food was superb and the waitress could not have been more helpful or friendly. As the restaurant filled up so the atmosphere became livelier but remained charming. We shared 2 starters and then had the moules , entrecôte and duck special. The local wines were a great accompaniment and the whole meal was very good value for money. Try the chocolate and caramel crumble it is not large but very rich! We will definitely be back in the summer to enjoy again. What a superb evening.

“Lovely setting, easy casual relaxed eating”
Reviewed 10 September 2012

Came across this restaurant on our walk around the lake/marina area. It is a lovely relaxed setting, right on the harbour, Food is basic, moules et frites, Roast beef and frites, Prawns, salads etc... all simple but great. We had Moules et Frites, which were lovely - there was a selection of styles I had Mariniere - traditional, and could be said I have had better... but my partner had catalan . and this was very tasty. Friendly servcie and easy time. A lot of people were eating here and Moules seemed to be the favoured dish at the time - Some were stopping off just for icecreams and just generally passing the time of day. If you want an easy stop off in a lovely setting, then this is recommended!
