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...

Very good Italian restaurant located in the old town of Neuchâtel. The choice on the menu is not wide however the food is delicious, especially the carpaccio and the pasta. The atmosphere is nice and the service very professional.

The food and the service was great. They were very accommodating to my gluten-free diet. I look forward to going back in the near future!

Located in a 17th century town house on a small picturesque square in the old town of Neuchâtel beside La Fontaine du Banneret. Nice outdoor terrace to enjoy a drink or a meal. Italian and Mediterranean cuisine with an emphasis on fresh seasonal produce. Pasta and fish are absolute delights, and delicious sorbets are not to be missed.
