We went there with a group of international colleagues for an informal dinner. Everybody left satisfied and entertained by the owner’s charismatic antics. He even returned a lost scarf to the owner the next day, offering a free cup of tea! Highly recommended.

If the place looks a bit shabby from the outside (Probably I would have not entered if friends have not recommended it), the food is excellent!! I especially recommend the falafels, oriental salad and melouah. Prices are reasonable for Switzerland. A must in Neuchâtel!
