This restaurant was recommended to me by my B & B host for having "the best perch filets of Vevey". She phoned for me and made a reservation.

After a long walk this morning and workout at the fitness center LaTour, we stopped on our way home for what we hopped was a quick lunch....fish was quite good, French fries, and rose' too. But service was very very slow! We had to ask for ice three times, and waited to be served and order taken way too long...

The restaurant prepares perfect lake fish dishes. Amazing taste ! Highly recommended. Located in the heart of this small town on the lake, can be a nice ending for a day trip around the lake.

Nice outdoor area and busy during lunch time. Seems to be a local gem, as we did not encounter too many tourists but locals having lunch. Service, quality and quantity of food were fantastic.

This restaurant has two entrances, one from the lakeside where I recall the sign said Bistrot du Port and the other from the rue d'Italie where it is the Café du Port. There are three sections, outdoor seating on the lakeside for those who want fresh air, lake views etc., the main inside seating and a 'pinte', a snug which... More

Lovely location under vine covered terrace close to the Vevey lake front, despite cheap tables and chairs. Limited menu but good quality and local wine selection. We both had filets de perches which were excellent and local Goron wine was lovely. Not cheap but worth it for the location and ambiance.

We were introduced to this restaurant by a friend who lived locally about 10 years ago and have been regular visitors ever since. The surroundings look quite basic but you can guarantee the freshest of Perche Filets from Lake Leman cooked to perfection. A simple meal of a mixed salad to start, Perche Filets and French Fries and dessert will... More

The very best steak de cheval and filet de boeuf in Vevey or even on the Riviera. I especially recommend the pepper sauce with the horse, a must... I live in Vevey and Le Port is the restaurant where I eat most frequently with family or friends.
