Delicious middle eastern food

The restaurant is on the small side, but when the weather is nice the terrace outside is lovely. The food is delicious and they also do catering.

Neuchatel was a bit challenging food wise. In contrast to almost everything else we tried during a conference visit there, Ami had a friendly atmosphere, good Mediterranean food, and very good value. Dinner was fun and tasty. Don't spend time running around the town - just try Ami first.

Visited this restaurant in early August based on Trip Advisor's recommendations. It is basic with white plastic tables/chairs outside and an inside area for the colder summer evenings. We had a mixed platter to share between 2 which we discussed with our very friendly waitress before ordering. She was extremely helpful explaining the dishes and her personal preferences. We were...

The ingredients are very fresh. They have one of the best falafel and baba ganouj I've ever eaten. Also a great Israeli red wine.

This is a very tiny restuarant serving Moroccan food along the walking street. In summer it is nice to sit outside on the street as this makes for good people watching. The menu contains a wide variety of kebabs, falafel and salads at a reasonable price. It is also possible to order as take-away. The owners are friendly.

Nothing to write home about. I had the salad oriental. The smoked aubergine puree was particularly good. The hummus wasn't great. The salad had no flavor. Maybe I choose poorly and some of the other dishes are better. I'd certainly go back and try again. But I can't give it more than an average score. I will say though that... More
