Very nice service and good basic food. The aperitif with homemade mirabelle is to die for ! The service was very accommodating and tried to meet our needs being vegetarian.

We stumbled across Les Rives du Lac and were pleased with the tasty food and welcoming service. The restaurant had a lovely atmosphere and was busy with groups of friends and families. Our waiter was very helpful and efficient and the food was good. A lovely dinner!

We went here with friends for lunch. The environment was warm and cosy with a log fire roaring away. Service from the young waiter was excellent. The menu is limited but when it came the food was excellent. I had the special burger which was great. Worth a visit :-)

We were sitting outside with a nice view on the lake. Tables are very old and should be renewed. Meals are very,very,very basic. If you are hungry it is ok but if not go elsewhere.

My choucroute arrived in a warm kilner jar - slightly to my surprise. The contents, however, were a warm wholesome combingation of sausage, bacon, sauerkraut and potatoes. Not cheap at Euros 14.80, but the location, beside the lake is lovely and the service good.
