Very nice Israeli restaurant in city center

In this restaurant you can taste a bit of Israeli kitchen, something not too common in West Switzerland. The food there is kosher, and I really love their melawouah (I hope you write it like this). If you go there for a pita sandwich, remember that everything is cooked on order and a wait of... read more

This restaurant is my go to place, when I'm craving oriental food in Neuchâtel. The place is pretty small, but their menu isn't & has a handful of vegetarian dishes. I usually choose their very tasteful Pita Mix.

Arrived here by chance - fantastic food, reasonably priced (by Swiss standards) with great, friendly service and amazing home-made baklava!

We were looking for somewhere to eat and came across this lovely little cafe by chance. We enquired if we could eat as so many restaurants are closed by 2pm and it was 3pm. We were welcomed in, seated and given a menu. The owner ran through the menu with us and we chose and waited for the food to... More

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.
