Low Quality, High Price, Overwritten Menu Aug 07, 2008
I was taught that if you can't say something nice don't say anything. In this case, I have to make an exception.

My family has stayed in the Beaulac for years. Nice hotel, good people. The new restaurant is, I am sorry to say, an expensive, bad joke.

The menu reads like a Dr. Seuss book, entrees titled with words like amazing and enticing, etc. But this would be okay if the food delivered the imagination and flavor you expect at these prices.

Unfortunately, the food falls short--way short. The chefs try to be imaginative and fine presentations. But they forgot texture and flavor.

I had the potato and cheese gnocchi. Gummy and tasteless. And for the record, it is not "gnocchi," which is plural, but rather a single solitary "gnocco." One undercooked dollop of mashed potato for SFr 15, about $14. It had the consistency of uncooked dumpling dough.

Followed by the SFr 23 Thai linguini. Dry, pasty, tasteless. You would get better at any mall food court.

Neuchatel has many fine restaurants. This is not one of them. I love the hotel, but the attached restaurant should be avoided like the plague.
