Si vous cherchez un bon rapport qualité prix, alors arrêtez vous là. L'accueil est sympathique, le service très agréable et à l'écoute. Les pizze sont très bien garnies et le rapport qualité prix sans égal dans cette commune. Profitez aussi des soirs proposant les pizze à 10 FS

Freiburger Falle

Reviewed By markypao

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.

Restaurant de la Gare

Reviewed By q-sto

Nomen est omen - Restaurant de la Gare is located directly across Faoug train station. From the outside the house looks rather unimpressive. However, the true surprise is inside: I had lunch in the bright and cozy wintergarden. Very nicely decorated as I visited mid-December (Christmas feeling!).A huge thumbs-up to the waitress (Rita) for the smiling and efficient service during the whole lunch. The menu is short, with focus on traditional dishes. As starter I chose the pumpkin soup with grilled scallops on the side - a delicate, yet revigorating combination. The main course was typically Swiss: ‘’Kalbsleberli / foie de veau’’ - sliced veal liver, sautéed with herbs, served with rösti. Delicious and generous portion - truly a highlight! As dessert I indulged myself with the homemade parfait: refreshing and very flavourful.Slight drawback: prices are definitely on the expensive side. Including wine my lunch amounted to CHF84. However the good food and lovely service are well worth it. Please note that the restaurant does not accept credit cards.

Restaurant Werft

Reviewed By Kathleen M

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.

When you find yourself hungry after swimming at Camping - Port Plage and want fast food? Visit this restaurant. Cool ambiance and fast service. Served a variety of Swiss fast food. Salad buffet was fresh but the choices were very limited.

Auberge de la Croix-Blanche

Reviewed By Xone

We headed to Villarepos on a wintery and snowy night of January to celebrate our marriage anniversary. We decided to take the three-course menu, which is really affordable for a restaurant of that level. The meal started with a fantastic apetizer which we acompanied by the local aperitif, it was a scallop carpaccio topped with a tartar of crab flesh. Just perfect, I could have eaten it as a main dish, so I only did regret the quantity... Then, my wife and I explored the two starters, one was a smoked local lakefish (bondelle), on a bed of red beet with a horseradish topping. It was visually stunning, but did not taste so special in our opinion. The other one was a giant tiger prawn in a red curry soup. That one was delicious, surprisingly spicy for a restaurant of this kind, but did not give the impression that any special technique allowed the chef to prepare it. In other words, I am not sure that it would not be just as good if I cooked it at home. For the main dish, there was a kind of "boeuf braisé" served in thin slices on a bed of mixed beet purée with a few vegetables. It was certainly not bad, but it looked like a well-dressed cantine dish and indeed tasted like a really well-prepared cantine dish. I wondered a bit why they took the risk to cook such a basic dish, since you have to really find a well out of the ordinary recipe to make it any special. Maybe they want to keep the menu price low and compromise on the main dish costs? Anyway, more satisfying was rather the half-bottle of Château l'Angludet 2009 (Margaux), albeit a little young.The dessert did disapppoint a little, too. It was sort of flat chocolate cake with a fruit ice-cream and some honey and a "caramel tuile". Quite good, but not really surprising either. We finished by a tea which came accompanied by nice little "mignardises".All in all, the price-quality ratio of the menu was really good, but the succession of the dishes was a bit anti-climactic. If you are ready to invest a little more, I would suggest to order à la carte, instead.

L'union

Reviewed By Michael M

Arrived at the restaurant two hours before the beginning of the opera at the Avenches arena. Waited for 35 min for someone to take our order. The starter was an old and very small green salad. Waited another 40 min to get our main course. The pizza was ridiculously bad - soggy, tasteless and with half the normal topping. The wine list was very limited, consisting of heavily overpriced, bad wine. Horrendous service (a complete lack of service more precisely).AVOID AT ALL COST

Restaurant des Bains

Reviewed By q-sto

Were it not listed in several gourmet guides including Gault-Millau, I would not have noticed Restaurant des Bains, as it looks rather bland from the outside.Inside, the dining room tells a different story: nicely decorated, bright, much room between the tables. Advance booking essential - I had lunch on a Friday and it was packed.I truly appreciated the service team: friendly yet not too familiar, efficient yet unobstrusive.The food was really enjoyable with nicely présentes and generous portions. I began with the "rosette de cerf" (deer rosette): thinly sliced deer on a bed of figs and papaya salad. An original and tasty starter! The main course was a tribute to the autumn season: diced venison fillet in a rich Noilly-Prat sauce and served with the traditional sides of red cabbage and spaetzli.As dessert the plum tart proved slightly disappointing: the puff pastry was too thick to my taste and hid the taste of the plums.Although very good, my lunch remained an expensive treat, even for Swiss standards, as the bill amounted to CHF108.

Very refreshing to be welcomed by people who are happy to work. Have been visiting a friend in Fribourg and discovered this unique place where food was simply delicious. Had a drink at the lounge located in the balcony before our dinner, the view on the place was superb from upstairs with a very creative barman. Try the fish backed in salt crust!Thank you very much for your review. Looking forward to welcoming you again.
