This restaurant is located in a charming part of the city. The restaurant was not busy, so we received fast service. The food was good, fresh pasta and delicious salad.

One of the very best steaks I've ever had and most definitely the best I've tasted in Neuchatel, by a long way. Lovely setting, nice variety of menu, excellent staff. Prices are commensurable with the quality. Only drawback is that you need to climb some very steep stairs to get there, so definitely NOT accessible unless you are fully mobile.

The main course consisted of a beef entrecôte with potatoes and vegetables. The entrecôte came wirh a green pepper sauce and was cooked to perfection. As desert we... More

We had a beautiful meal here in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the old town below the clock tower. The lamb was excellent and the service was very good.

This was a great recommendation from our hotel. It's a lovely restaurant right in the heart of old town with tables outside next to a beautiful fountain and beneath the old clock tower. The food was excellent and the service was friendly and attentive. Our waitress took the time to translate the entire menu for us non French speaking folks.... More

Excellent carpaccio of red tuna to start, followed by a good quality fillet steak. My wife had the lamb with a thyme and honey jus, which she found delicious.

Small place to have dinner. Food is ok, but not great. Meat was rather soft but not juicy enough. Personnel is very pleasant.

The only house with a facade in the "Empire" style in Neuchatel is this gem of a restaurant. Expect attentive service and a small, select menu. I had the "plat du jour", which was a perfectly cooked steak with crisp vegetables and roesti-style potatoes. The tables outside are next to the fountain that give the restaurant the name, in a...
