Pinte de Pierre-à-Bot

Restaurant Pinte de Pierre-à-Bot is a small restaurant set on the quiet rolling grasslands and trees of a park. This is one of the most peaceful, calm Restaurants and natural surroundings you can enjoy in or near Neuchâtel, and is excellent for kids. The outdoor seating is a favorite of people who want to sit in the sun, sip a drink or order a meal from the menu, and talk with friends.

A small playground just a few steps down the hill helps keep young children from being bored. Chess and checker boards are available for older kids and adults. Just behind the restaurant is a basketball 'court' though the court itself is grassy and has a few lumps. Ping pong tables are adjacent to the basketball court.

The menu includes meat dishes with choice of sauces and fries. The fondue is good, and is especially a favorite of locals on cold winter nights when the restaurant's natural wood interior offers a cozy place to eat and visit with friends for a few hours.

Dress is casual throughout the day, and casual to nice-casual for dinner. The number of tables is very limited, which adds to its sense of intimacy, but means you might not find a table for dinner. Call ahead for dinner reservations.
