Offers a range of bistro-type food, slighly overpriced but well-prepared. The restaurant also has some quite good wines from the Neuchatel area. Service is a little too intense, which is common in Switzerland.

We had a fabulous dinner. The service was outstanding so was the food. This place is clearly underrated. The atmosphere, the food the ambience... and I would give at least 17 Gault Millau points!

Excellent Service and good food. The proposed risotto was a little bit too much of a mix of flavours (lemon, tomato, ......). The simpler the better.
