“Good food, Swiss prices”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2011

The restaurant is housed in a 16th century building in the heart of the city of Neuchâtel, right off the Place des Halles, between the castle and the lake. The restaurant is composed of units, the cafe, the bar, the restaurant, and the banquet room. I have eaten at the cafe a couple of times.

The food is quite good. Those from outside Switzerland may balk at the prices, but I find that they are pretty much in line with everywhere else in the country for a decent meal. (Being from outside the country, I find the prices for pretty much any Swiss meal to be exorbitant.) The menu includes meat and fish (local and imported), as well as vegetarian dishes. Each dish is well plated, and the food is quite good. I suggest that you try to save room for dessert. The dessert menu includes a variety of delicious sweets, some well-pulled off combinations of tradition and creativity.

Once a fantastic place to eat (their steaks and filets de perche were mouthwatering) has now turned into a mass tourist type restaurant and forgotten is attention to the quality of food. The last 3 times we've eaten here have been a huge disappointment.
