Classic dishes like Perches and Crepe Suzette meet beautiful seasonal specials. Great food, great ambience and service. This is one of our favorites in the area. Love it!

Really, really good service. We had the foie gras for starter, amazing, we tried to buy some but they were not selling it. We also tried the Noix de Saint Jacques, perfectly cooked! Then as it was our first visit we had to go for the specialty : Les filets de perches. And it wasn't disappointing. 2 services and really... More

I have been a few times in the Vieux Navire and the quality of their most famous dish (filet de perche) is variable. It is a pity that they do no serve (at least not always) filet de perche from Lake Geneva. I think often the filet de perche is coming form the North-East of Europe. This degrades the quality...

This has become our family favorite, and also weher I try to have my business dinners and lunches when possible. I have never had a bad moment in this restaurant. The waiters are amazing, the food is delicious, and the atmosphere just the right level of conversation and laughter. Prices are a bit steep, but well worth it.

We visited this restaurant on Sunday 16th October for a family lunch, and were very pleased with the whole experience. There was a lovely atmosphere, the staff were charming and the food delicious. We found the set menu good value for money, with an excellent choice, and the portions were very generous. The cooking was of a high standard. Certainly... More

Excellent filet de perche. Very good service. Very nice little terrace outside for apéritif with view on the lake. The deserts are amazing too.

Nice little village hidden after a huge commercial area, and with a cosy terrace, a liitle bit too noisy for our taste (closed tables...) but with a good lakeview. The main thing: the food. My wife and I had the 'famous' filets de perche and I have to say that they deserve their reputation: tender, well cooked and with a... More

We were not on the terrace overlooking the lake and the Alps this time. In fact the terrace has become so covered it looked dark, but it was fully booked anyway, and quite noisy when we walked past after eating. It would not have bene the same experience as last time, with was quite magical. We ate inside and it... More
