“Tastefully decorated with very good cuisine”
Reviewed January 25, 2014

The waitress who served us was very attentive and friendly. The cuisine was up to the standard we expected but there were a couple of negative points - the a "amuse-bouche" - a small soup was lukewarm and one of our starters, sliced scallops rolled in smoked salmon, the slices were so thin that they were almost transparent! Otherwise everything else was perfect.

“Great food in a beautiful setting”
Reviewed January 17, 2014

It was a great surprise to find such a beautiful restaurant in this tiny picturesque village in the swiss country very close to Neuchatel.The building outside is very well maintained and inside is a nice surprise to find unusual chandeliers and old wooden beams on the ceiling.The cold duck liver tart tatin was a wonderful surprise with its warm brioche and pear slices.Very tasty the curry prawns served with perfectly roasted fresh pineapple and rice.Original the orange cake served with fresh passion fruit. Wines also by the glass and very kind service.For lunch there are always some special for a cheap price and the dinner menu is very intriguing .....stuffed guinea fowl leg with fois gras as an example or oysters or escargots.

“Great place to eat”
Reviewed July 28, 2011

As a local, I would strongly recommend l'Escarbot. Nested in the beautiful Old Town of Le Landeron, it offers great cuisine for an affordable price. Service used to be dissapointing a few years ago, but nowadays I never have someone tell be he had been dissapointed.
