“Nice restaurant with a wonderful view over the lake”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2010

The restaurant is very elegant and provides a breathtaking view over the lake of Murten. Unforunately the service is below average for such a restaurant. The staff was not so attentive, so we waited more than 20 minutes to get the bill and again quite some time until we could pay.

We recommend to book your table close to the windows.

“First of all the setting...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2008

First of all the setting - in the old town of Murten with a view on the lake and the Mont Vully; that alone is worth a visit, especially in time for the spectacular sunset...
There's a lot of local fish on the menu, which I haven't yet tried myself but which is supposed to be fresh and tender. The vegetable "terrine" is excellent, and the food is served with a lot of attention to detail. Wine - local and suprisingly good. Staff friendly and efficient, and of course bilingual - we're in Murten, after all...

“Excellent dinner with a great view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2008

We had a great dinner on fresh lake perch at the Hotel Murtenhof and Krone dining room. The restaurant is on a terrace above the lake and provides a fabulous view to go with the dinner. We ate outdoors on a warm evening. If you want an indoor table, you need to make a reservation. We also had a very helpful and pleasant server who spoke excellent English. Overall it was one of the best dinners we had on our trip, and Murten is definitely an interesting medieval town well worth seeing. It makes a great day trip by train from Bern.
