House speciality + sallad dressing

Please try the "filets the perche" house special fish from Lac Lemand. Looks like a simple dish but its very good. The sallad you get as an entry also has the house dressing. Extremely good. Its actyally sold by the bottle. Take one home!

This laid-back "bistro-style" restaurant is well known in the area for its fine food and professional service... and the steep prices. Mind you, everything I tried on the menu is of the highest quality; perfectly prepared, nicely presented and served in style. The filets de perche are excellent; among the very best in all the restaurants I've been too –... More

One of the best places to eat filets de perches, but the rest of the menu is excellent as well. Very good service, lovely atmosphere, good selection of the best local wines.

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).
