We strolled past this packed terrace restaurant on a sunny Saturday evening with the hope of finding 2 places free. A waitress was clearing a table and she asked us politely to wait a couple of minutes to finish and she set the places for us. In spite of the terrace being packed, she coped very well and we were pleasantly surprised by the relatively quick service. The food itself was not top notch but quite acceptable and the setting, on edge of the port, well-protected from the sun with parasols, was perfect. Definitely a place to recommend but probably best to book if the weather's good.

We knew this place before it changed hands, and the refurbishing is a great success - lovely, airy room (and the terrace would have been perfect if it wasn't raining).

The menu is interesting and varied, and included fresh lake fish, fish carpaccio, but also roast beef and fries, steaks, and a daily special (looked excellent also - it was lamb shank when we were there).

Our grilled fish was superb, with a good selection of vegetables (which were, however, rather bland and could have used even a shake of herbs or a drizzle of oil). The fries (men, eh?) were superb (because I had to steal a few).

Good choice of wines by the glass, by the carafe or in bottles at fair prices for Switzerland.

All in all a pleasant experience, with helpful staff. A place to go back to, most definitely.

Used trip advisor to select this restaurant as their partner restaurant is rated number 2 in the complete list of restaurants in Neuchatel. Quite a small restaurant and menu but the food was superb and the waitress could not have been more helpful or friendly. As the restaurant filled up so the atmosphere became livelier but remained charming. We shared 2 starters and then had the moules , entrecôte and duck special. The local wines were a great accompaniment and the whole meal was very good value for money. Try the chocolate and caramel crumble it is not large but very rich! We will definitely be back in the summer to enjoy again. What a superb evening.

Came across this restaurant on our walk around the lake/marina area. It is a lovely relaxed setting, right on the harbour, Food is basic, moules et frites, Roast beef and frites, Prawns, salads etc... all simple but great. We had Moules et Frites, which were lovely - there was a selection of styles I had Mariniere - traditional, and could be said I have had better... but my partner had catalan . and this was very tasty. Friendly servcie and easy time. A lot of people were eating here and Moules seemed to be the favoured dish at the time - Some were stopping off just for icecreams and just generally passing the time of day. If you want an easy stop off in a lovely setting, then this is recommended!
