Located within the Hotel Les Armures in the city’s historic Old Town, this restaurant serves traditional Swiss fare in a two-story space that dates from the 17th century. A full suit of armor marks the entrance to the tavern-like dining room, which also contains wooden ceiling beams, white tablecloths, and stone walls hung with real muskets. Outside, additional seating is available on a cobblestoned terrace, sandwiched between the Old Arsenal and the Maison Tavel. Complemented by Swiss and French wines, the menu includes dishes like air-dried meats, cheese fondue, and chopped veal with cream sauce and rösti (fried grated potatoes).
Before dinner, explore the adjacent Musée d'Art et d'Histoire (Museum of Art and History), home to archaeology exhibits, medieval weapons, and paintings by the likes of Rodin and van Gogh.
