For the price, food was okay, good portion size but too much dressing, although what I got into my plate was not exactly what I ordered (by magic, my avocado turned into a cheap and fat guacamole ...). The bad experience of our dinner is essentially due to the service. The waitress hosted and treated us for the whole diner... More

The restaurant is simple (basic food + fries for a lot of menu), the prices are really fair. The burgers are good. In Neuchatel it seems to be the best quality/price ratio for simple food. The staff is nice but not professional. It's somehow part of the atmosphere of the restaurant !

The Bleu café is a small snack in Neuchâtel, Switzerland. While the service might not always be the fastest, rest assured that this venue is worth it, especially if you're on a budget since this is, to my honest opinion, the best value restaurant in town. Cheaper than Mc'Donalds, and of way better quality, I like to go there almost... More

if you are out in the city and want to watch a movie there is a cool "movie+dinner* combo where you get the movie entry ticket. you eat a variety of sandwiches ( not bread but the type of fajita bread) which are warm, they come served with fries or salad depending on the menue. quite good in general

Have only been here a couple of times but each time it was a great meal. Often crowded but a great atmosphere and good place to stop before or after a film.

I've been there many times and the service is usually bad, but the last time I went it was even more terrible, the waiter was rude and showed lack of respect to one of my friends, the owner did not care at all, what a terrible attitude in a place where you're supposed to chill out, but instead of it,...

I've been in this place three times. The first time was in the evening, and I was lucky that they still had some sandwiches for me. The service was friendly that day, and the food tasty. The two next time I went there was during lunch time. I think I was really patient the second time. Indeed, I waited for... More

I really liked the food, and the service was good. The waitresses were very nice. However, they do not take credit cards. When I thought I did not have eough money, it was very embarrassing. I ultimately did but mon dieu, crazy.

Trying to find affordable and good food were about to stress us out. Blue Cafe is a gem!! Great food, exceptional pricing (especially for the area) and cozy atmosphere. The language barrier was also not an issue, we were able to work it out, our little knowledge of French and their little knowledge of English worked out just fine. If... More
