This restaurant serves some of the very best and freshest fish from the lake (specialising in filets de perches) and offers extraordinary views on the lake and the Swiss and French Alps. Perfect for a dinner with friends or family. Fine food and perfect service.

We always go there for their Filets de Perche - they have 3 different préparations - and all of them are very good. Also, their salad dressing is unique and is worth a try. In Summer it is a pleasure to eat on their small terrasse overlooking the beaufiful Lake Leman.

Our daughter lives in Morges and her Swiss friends recommended Au Vieux Navire for our 50th wedding anniversary lunch. Simply outstanding. We had a nice round table and the staff were very welcoming and attentive. The adults had the house specialty: perch filets that were excellent; our granddaughters devoured huge chunks of tender beef filets with endless platters of crisp... More

One of this amazing places where the tradition meets excellence. The restaurant is known for its filet de perch and secret salad sauce (indeed worth a try). But there is many more there, for example amazing hommard, if you have a special event. In general, the fish is the specialty, but meat lovers will always find something there too. The... More

We had a dinner among colleagues. The restaurant itself is nice with a sophisticated menu. The prices of the starters were very expansive. For main course the majority ordered ‘fillet de perch’. The portion was ok but certainly did not justify its price. Desserts were nice, but again the prices were exaggerated.

Hi Shirk77, Thank you for commenting on our page. According to your profile on TripAdvisor, it seems that you travelled a lot around the world and as you may know, prices in Switzerland are actually higher in comparison to other countries. We offer at “Vieux Navire” for 39 Fr. a plate of perch fillets with homemade tartare sauce and French... More

I love the Vieux Navire. The location, the staff, the atmosphere. I used to love the food, unfortunaely, this time was not convincing. Fries where not even average, the fish good but not great. hope this will improve again otherwise my next visit might be the last

We dine frequently at Au Vieux Navire. The restaurant is charming in decor and atmosphere (and the summer terrace is a slice of heaven with a view on the lake that is unrivaled). The service is friendly, warm, and efficient. The menu is terrific, especially if you like fish. Don't miss the incredible homemade secret recipe salad dressing, which, BTW,... More

What a relief to enter this welcoming little restaurant whose warmth surprises you once you have driven through the rather austerely budding modern village. The tolerably buzzing atmosphere of a fully booked Sunday restaurant was further enhanced by professional & courteous attention in serving a very acceptable & well prepared meal. Excellent Crepes Suzettes are prepared at the table with... More
