I went on a day trip out to Murten to enjoy the fine fall weather and have some Egli (lake perch). We decided on the restaurant at the Schiff am Rhein, as the menu was more reasonably priced than that at the nearby Vieux-Manoir, and the dishes we wanted were available at Schiff am See, as well. We would regret that decision by the end of the meal, and my father noted wistfully that you always do "get what you pay for" - even though Schiff am See was not exactly cheap.
We ordered the Egli (perch) two different ways. The fish itself, while fresh, was unremarkably prepared and bland. Unforgivably, the accompanying small boiled potatoes (Salzkartoffeln) were criminally undercooked and the whole mess was served by disinterested and borderline rude staff. The tip reflected the fact that the check, when presented, was more or less flung at the table by a put-out looking waiter.
Upside: we subsequently proceeded to Vieux-Manoir for coffee and dessert. Anybody reading this review would be well served to enjoy their entire meal in this wonderful hotel.
