We hadn't been presented with a menu so that we could see the prices and ordered their only available food: fish and chips. We were stunned when we saw the bill: 4 portions of fish and chips + 4 small salads + one bottle of water - 140.9 CHF. We spent 9 days in Switzerland and ate in 20 other... More

At Cafe du Port, food is always fresh and tasty, and the fish is the very best, served in simple yet delicate manner. The cafe is cozy in the Winter or during rainy days, while the large terrace is perfect for a warm day or cool night (open or closed roof according to the weather). Have a try at the... More

This really is the best perch on the lake. They get fresh fish almost daily, beautiful. The service is very friendly, welcoming and prompt. The atmosphere is relaxing, casual and quirky (in a good sense). If it is crowded and in summer, yes, service will be slower but just like everywhere else. So have a carafe of wine and enjoy...

This restaurant was recommended to me by my B & B host for having "the best perch filets of Vevey". She phoned for me and made a reservation. First it was difficult to access the proximity of the restaurant by car from the direction where I came from. GPS always wanted to guide me through the old town which was,... More

After a long walk this morning and workout at the fitness center LaTour, we stopped on our way home for what we hopped was a quick lunch....fish was quite good, French fries, and rose' too. But service was very very slow! We had to ask for ice three times, and waited to be served and order taken way too long...

The restaurant prepares perfect lake fish dishes. Amazing taste ! Highly recommended. Located in the heart of this small town on the lake, can be a nice ending for a day trip around the lake.

Nice outdoor area and busy during lunch time. Seems to be a local gem, as we did not encounter too many tourists but locals having lunch. Service, quality and quantity of food were fantastic.

This restaurant has two entrances, one from the lakeside where I recall the sign said Bistrot du Port and the other from the rue d'Italie where it is the Café du Port. There are three sections, outdoor seating on the lakeside for those who want fresh air, lake views etc., the main inside seating and a 'pinte', a snug which... More

Lovely location under vine covered terrace close to the Vevey lake front, despite cheap tables and chairs. Limited menu but good quality and local wine selection. We both had filets de perches which were excellent and local Goron wine was lovely. Not cheap but worth it for the location and ambiance.
