La Trinquette is a modest looking lakeside restaurant, located at the Bevaix Harbour. The service and the food however, have nothing modest about them. We were welcomed in a professional and friendly manner. The service was perfect and the food outstanding. Everything, from starters to desserts was excellent. There were four of us and we all tried different things, from... More

Wonderful food, great device & lovely setting. Definitively a favourite! Foie Gras was delightful & Tartare de boeuf superb. Worth booking, and weather permitting get on the terrace. Enjoy.

If the weather is nice ,sitting on the terrace is a must, on a rainy day you have to make sure you reserve a table as the restaurant is small, service excellent, food presentation superb, taste delicate from the starter to the desert.

This was the third or fourth time which we ate at la Trinquette and it was the best! Although we have always enjoyed the meals, this one was a "magret de canard" (duck's breast) grilled perfectly medium rare and served with a marvelous sauce and accompanied by carrots and very light mashed potatoes. W eat so had a basket of... More

This is a great place, close to the lake in a quiet area. Easy parking and perfect for kids to run around. Food is well presented and colorful, however taste is good but not the best, won't get the "filets de perches" again.

The food here is very well presented but, if you take all the trimmings away, it is not better culinary-wise than a lot of other restaurants on Neuchâtel lake-side and is generally more expensive. However, the staff are very friendly and efficient and the location is nice.

Small but well decorated buvette at the port of Bevaix. The carte is limited but has some interesting dishes. Portions are generous and prices are very reasonable. One problem is lack of ventilation inside so if the weather is cold all the odours are trapped (fondues, fries, grilled fish, steaks on hot stone) which is great when you are hungry... More
