My friends who live close to the restaurant invited me to have dinner with them. We were given a very warm welcome by the owner and showed us to a table overlooking the lake of Biel. There menu card was full of mouth watering fish dishes. I have ordered the Zander Filet with boiled potatoes. The preparation was just out... More

It was a hot day, so we chose ice cream for dessert. The salad was crisp and fresh and the fish delicious, the ice cream was... More

Had lunch with the colleges and they had the fish which was sublime! My steak on the grill was definitely a highlight, enjoyed it all the way. The service was also very nice! Enjoy the view on the lake - recommend to reserve a table in advance near the window.

Really enjoyed the "Eglifilets à la meunière" although they were coming from abroad (which is just because of the season for local fish was already over). Service was attentive, suggest local white wine was simply amazing ....

The fish dishes are highly recommended for its freshness. I was told they got the fish from the same lake next to it. The outdoor seating is very scenic. Facing the beautiful lake. House wine is also great. Not forgetting. ..the excellent service from all the staff.

I'm biased because the specialty at this restaurant is one of my favorite dishes anywhere: local-caught perch fillets. They do two versions: fried, or sauteed in butter. Both are delicious and definitely worth trying if you're in the area. They have several other options on the menu, including local pike fillets and a very good veal dish. I went as... More

Egli or perchs grow in the Bieler See in Switserland. We visit Biel since many, many years and learned how to enjoy this tasteful, tiny fish. One of the best places for egli is restaurant Du Lac, just outside Biel in Vingelz. Swiss service, Swiss quality and Swiss prices. But delicious. Order a local wine to accompany your egli meunières,... More
