Touring Au Lac

I can't say that the Restaurant-Pizzeria Touring Au Lac is the coziest, most intimate place to have breakfast, lunch or dinner. It is not. The restaurant's main advantage is its location beside Neuchâtel's port, and minutes away from many of the town's museums, shopping, and historic town center. And, it is open earlier and longer than most the Restaurants in town, and on most holidays. Half the walls of the restaurant are large glass sliding doors giving you a good view off the little harbor, the lake and the alps on the horizon. The outdoor seating is a pleasant place to sit with family and friends and sip a drink on a warm summer's day.

As the name implies the menu includes pizza. You can also order for dinner a number of Italian dishes including spaghetti, tagliatelle, penne, tortellini, gnocchi, cannelloni, lasagne, risotti, rognoni, meat dishes, and fish dishes. Wines are from Italy, Switzerland, and France. The prices are moderate by Swiss standards. The restaurant is at Place Numa-Droz 1, kiddy corner to Neuchâtel's main post office, overlooking the harbor, and is open seven days a week from 6:30 am to 12:00 pm.

Seating is ample so you probably don't need a reservation. But, if you want be sure about that you can call 032 724 33 45 if dialing locally; otherwise dial 41 32 724 33 45.
