Had a great meal of tasty fish. Try to get there early in the evening, as you can't reserve garden tables.

Lovely restaurant with nice decoration, beautiful setting and great lake view. The menu is typical for switzerland, nothing spectacular, but good quality food. Steak tartare and filet de perche were very nice. Excellent wine list from the region. We had a delicious pinot noir.

You enjoy "filets de perches" then do not hesitate but better book it as it's well known and more or less 300 seats are available between the terrace, the cafe place and the various dining rooms. For this, 36 persons work together (kitchen and service) which is a huge number for a restaurant. The service is quick and very well... More

My wife and I have ate at the Restaurant Bel-Air early on in a month long holiday in Switzerland from the UK. We liked it so much we went there five times in all. This restaurant deserves special mention, in our opinion, for the consistency of its service and quality of food. One of the best meals I've eaten anywhere... More

We disembarked from the steamboat at this much acclaimed fish restaurant. Every chair, every table was occupied and good thing (maybe not so good ?) We had reserved at this Bel Air in Praz. The terrace is paradisiac with the lake, the vineyards and the hills sprawling in front of the eyes. The service harassed and infinitely less than gracious... More

We'd been recommended this place but unfortunately when we arrived on a Thursday late it was closed! But, luckily, the self-service café in front of the hotel was open and with tables right on the lake front we sat and watched the paddle steamer come and go and had a delightful coffee. We'll try to go back!

We had a family lunch at the Restaurant Bel-Air in Praz on the Murten Lake. The setting is very nice since this restaurant is on the shore of the Murten Lake in the midst of a charming village surrounded by vineyards. We sat on the terrace which is always very busy and unfortunately very loud too. Reservations are thus highly... More

We have been to Bel-Air several times now and every time we have walked away happy and very full. The filet de perche are a must have... but there is also a vegetarian platter, which is exquisite. Everything has been cooked to perfection, but beware, if you select the so called larger serving of fish, you will recieve two helpings,... More
