Went last Friday with friends living in Pontarlier to this small place next to the bridge on the Doubs. Must be very nice in the summer with the terrace on the river. Very warm welcome by the owner. Menu is based on seasonal products and changes daily. The chicken stew that evening was perfumed with citrus fruits. Original and very... More

One of the easy adventures of travel is finding unique places that significantly differ from home. After touring one of the local absinthe distilleries, we visited Cote Pont for lunch. Small riverside restaurant with a fire on the hearth. Set menu: soup, entree with side, desert. Wine, aperitifs and coffee available. Well-made and served by the typical sole waiter. The... More

We dined at Restaurant Côte Pont on a cool and rainy evening and could not have been more pleased. The menu of the day (there is no à la carte) is posted outside the entrance so should you not eat something you do have the option of skipping that course (the three items...appetizer, main and dessert are priced separately as...

We had driven into Pontarlier and chosen the restaurant by chance. Restaurant was nicely located by the river. Beautiful little house restaurant run by a middle age couple. The food choices were on the blackboard outside the restaurant (we didn't know that). Food was great. The appetizers were delicious and remarkably made and very presentable. Our main course was a...

Wonderful little restaurant right by the Doubs river. Very good service and the meals are always wonderful. Equally ideal for a quiet and calm dinner as for a larger company. Be sure to book in advance though, they are popular. The one thing that could be improved is the wine selection. If half points could be awarded, it would get... More
