“Great lunch!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2012

Plat du jour here is always a good lunch alternative at CHF18. Belgian and seasonal beers on draught are always welcome in the land of feldshlössen.

“Not a beer hall”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2012

We thought Le Cardinal was a beer hall, given it is named the same as the local swiss beer, but its toally different, and a classic Brasserie. Great service and good food... the decor is EXACTLY what you'd expect... perfect for the environment

“I'd Give It a "B"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2012

First things first, I ordered a steak. I got a quality hunk of meat that was cooked correctly. I thoroughly enjoyed it. The painted tiles that surround you while you eat are unique. That should be enough to fall in love with the place, but I'm not terribly excited about returning. I believe it was a 'stuffy' place, meaning the prices were high for what you got and it seemed overhyped. My wife ordered a forgetful beef tartare and might have ordered a forgetful dessert. This is it. This place is good, but lacks soul in my mind. Try a few other places first in Neuchatel.

“Excellent”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2012

Very delicious quality food. They had exactly what we were looking for. Service was great as they spoke a variety of languages. Including one waitress who helped out alot with explaining the menu. Only down side I could say is it is a little pricey when we convert it into NZD. BUt other than that it really has no oher let downs.
