This restaurant is in the charming village of Buchillon. The food is delicious and the service is excellent. The local wine they serve is great. Yes, it is expensive but there are set menus from 64 to 84 CHF. It is sophisticated and romantic but also family friendly with a children's menu, crayons etc,. I can't wait to go back!

Great value for money: The filets de perche were delicious, the staff highly professional and affable. I would love to go back on a sunny evening and eat out on the terrace overlooking the lake

Really really good food (the homemade fries are amazing!) and the service is incredible! Everyone speaks English too if that's important... Highly recommended! Will definitely be back again soon!

The Vieux Navire will go down as the best service i have ever had in a swiss restaurant. The staff is very kind and professional. They're not just waiters, they are professionals that take their jobs seriously. You would never in a million years expect such a nice restaurant in this area (literally behind Ikea :D ). I was on...

Situated in a tiny village in the vineyards, the place is an unpretentious gem. The interior makes you think of a French Brasserie. The food is simply divine and refined. The staff is very friendly and motivated. You immediately feel at home. The director has a mouthwatering way to present the menu. You simply cannot resist. The top-quality comes with... More

We love to eat in this restaurant, mainly the "Filets de perches", they are really good and the salad that goes with it has a delicious and unique dressing. The team has always been very welcoming. In the Summer, it is possible to eat on a terrace with a beautiful view on the Lake Leman (also called Lake of Geneva).

And salad dressing one of the best. I must say that it is not cheap, but the final satisfaction will shadow this. :0) I recommend it if you have a special ocassion or... More

Wonderful atmosphere, great service, fine fish and excellent crèpes! Took the place of the Lausanne Palace Brasserie as our favorite restaurant in the Lausanne area after a disastrous dinner on December 16.

Very good restaurant overall, we were brought here by friends who could only recommend the perche filets as apparently this is the place to eat them, very good indeed! We were also told that the terrace in summer is amazing.
