Good for a quick pizza

Nice place near Berntor, the entrance to Murten. In summer there is an awesome little fountain running near the terrase. Food is basic but pizzas are quite tasty.

Great place for dinner -- menu is HUGE! (5 pages of pizzas!). Offers pasta, fish, meat, pizzas. One pizza is enough to share for 2 people, or get 1 if you're really hungry. Fast service, great location (just inside gate) nice views of the main street (giant glass windows).

We ate dinner here with another couple. My wife and I shared a salad and split a pizza. I was still hungry and we ordered a second pizza. We had a nice table out doors on a beautiful summer evening. The prices were what we expected. Everything is expensive in Switzerland.

Very good pizzas with a wide selection of toppings. This is an extremely popular restaurant and often very crowded. In warm weather the terrace is often full and in winter the dining room is frequently packed. Service is efficient. It's not necessarily a place you'd like to loiter in, though.

Nice location, pleasant service, reasonable value. Nice crispy pizza base, but virtually no cheese on it. Chicken breast with rice and lemon sauce...as advertised, but nothing special.

Not sure what else to say, but our salad and pizza were not great and the service was also spotty. Wish we had gone somewhere else.

I had lunch special with a salad and a mushroom pizza for a lunch. It was a decent one although I thought the cheese was a bit rubbery and the bread was a bit though. They only have German or French on their menu. The service was good.

I've been there twice, once in 2012 and once this April. Both times I was very satisfied. Staff is very friendly and the dishes delicious. Pizzas are great and the Safran Risotto tasted fantastic. I'd definitely go again.

We had lunch here, enjoying meal of the day which was excellent value for two courses. Service was excellent. The calzone and pizza were excellent. Great corner of Murten to see the goings on, very relaxing.

We enjoyed the diner and the service was so good too. 30€ per person eating a pizza and drinking a beer.
