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
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.
