“Wonderful option for local fish”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

I'm biased because the specialty at this restaurant is one of my favorite dishes anywhere: local-caught perch fillets. They do two versions: fried, or sauteed in butter. Both are delicious and definitely worth trying if you're in the area. They have several other options on the menu, including local pike fillets and a very good veal dish.

I went as part of a larger party (7) and the service was attentive and professional throughout. The menu is expensive by the standards of most other countries, but not bad by Swiss standards, particularly given the lakeside location.

A 20-min walk from the main train station, or a short cab ride. Seek it out if you're in the area.

“Our favorite egli (perch) restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

Egli or perchs grow in the Bieler See in Switserland. We visit Biel since many, many years and learned how to enjoy this tasteful, tiny fish. One of the best places for egli is restaurant Du Lac, just outside Biel in Vingelz. Swiss service, Swiss quality and Swiss prices. But delicious. Order a local wine to accompany your egli meunières, like Chasselas. Great experiance!

“Nice fish restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

Nice little fish restaurant at Lake Bienne in canton of Berne. Small but fine menu card with partly local fish and there is also a nice choice of local wine. Very reasonable prices. We highlight the excellent sea view and the friendly local staff.
