The restaurant is well located and has direct access to the lake (has a marina). The main restaurant sits above the "snacks restaurant" so there's another menu down there. If you want a nice spot close to the lake, book ahead. Good food, perhaps a little more changes in the menu won't do bad.

The restaurant De l'Ours gets a Bib Gourmand from Michelin and we dined there is mid-May 2013. The dining room is pleasant, the services was good and the food very good - fresh, seasonal produce nicely prepared and fairly reasonable in price (this is Switzerland). Good wine list.

Found this hotel/restaurant by accident on a hike and returned in the evening for dinner. The patio has a terrific view of the Murtensee and, if clear, the distant Alps. We had drinks on the patio and then moved inside to eat. [There are actually two restaurants- one bistro-like and the other more formal. They share much of the same menu but you can also get fondue in the bistro.] Our meal was creatively prepared and excellent. Local wine added to our enjoyment of the evening.

From outside, one sees a smartly refurbished farmhouse that fits well into this pretty farming village. The building is decorated with flower-filled window boxes and emblazoned with the words 'La Maison Salvagny'. There is no outward indication of this being a hotel or restaurant. Inside, the spacious dining area is cut off from the kitchen by a glass wall. Tables are set nicely apart and acoustic ceiling tiles, strategically-positioned, keep the sound level down, which is helpful as the floor is tiled. The three-course (CHF 72) menu offers three choices for each course. We picked salad with red mullet and home-made terrine followed by grilled chicken (so-so) and filet of beef in a herb crust (exquisite). For pudding we both opted for cafÃ© gourmand - an espresso accompanied by tiny portions of cakes, crunchy biscuits and a creamy trifle. Extra supplies of the main course gravies were provided in dainty copper pans kept warm on matching copper stands. Service was attentive but not intrusive. The wine list featured a well-selected range and included some locally grown Vully wines.

We've been eating here off and on for at least 10 years and what started out as a good restaurant is just getting better and better. Eating in the ground floor bistro has become as memorable as meals in the gourmet dining area on the first floor. Opting for the CHF 75, three-course menu (plus palate-clearing pink grapefruit sorbet between fish and meat courses) we had a magnificent meal. A first course of turbot served on a bed of absinthe-flavoured fennel and topped with a delicate layer of crispy-crunchy roesti potatoes; a main course of sublime juicy, flavourful filet of beef teamed with diced truffles from the region and vegetables (the beetroot with raspberry vinegar and raspberries being particularly noteworthy) and a trio of desserts, each of them delectable. Local Vully wines are well represented in a wine list that also ventures as far afield as Russia's Black Sea coast and the New World. The service in the informal and friendly bistro is impeccable.

Definitely interesting mix of modern style and traditions, excellent fish dishes, very good service (and I came from Japan - so my benchmark is pretty high)

We felt privileged walking down the stairs into the charming tavern. Lucky to have booked an evening table in the morning as many guests have to book a week in advance. There aren't that many tables.Aged beef, veal or bison are the hits on the menu and come in a sizzling plate. Cheese options including Fondue, rosti, and mac n'cheese represent the other "part" of the cow :)Steak was delicious. Best I've had in ages.

We enjoyed our dinner in this bustling restaurant: generous portions of salad with appetizing dressings. These were followed by rack of lamb (deliciously rare) served with excellent Mediterranean vegetables and a baked potato stuffed with Epoisses cheese - the cheese proving a little superfluous. Our other main course was a Wiener Schnitzel with luke-warm potato salad (scrumptious). A small carafe of a local Vully red wine and espresso rounded off our meal. While the espresso could have been stronger, the bread (Baslerbrot from the Buttergipfel bakery in Murten) was outstanding.The decor is stark and tasteful, and the shaded outdoor terrace looked most inviting. We'll be back.
