I had a very good experience in this restaurant. We went in a big group, and everything was good, from to beginning to the end. I took the menu at ~34€ (if I remember well), and I had an amazing starter (Tartare de Féra), the Filets de perche come with French fries and a salad. And I had a perfect... More

Filet de perches was delicious and generous helping with crispy french fries. Also you can request to have your filet de perches with garlic and parsley which is not on the menu. And... More

Had a lovely meal of perfectly cooked lake fish with homemade chips. Simple dishes but the quality of ingredients were cooked to perfection. Staff friendly, professional and efficient.

A friend told us to try this restaurant, so we did. The whole meal is almost perfect. We did have a table on the terrace in the lake as we reserved. Even we were a bit late due to the traffic, they still kept our table. We ordered deep-fried little fish as starter. It was so delicious. Our main dishes... More

Whilst the postal town for this restaurant is Margencel, it is in the part called Port de Sechez which is indeed the little fishing port of Sechez. From the five ways junction on the old N5 take the road down to the lake and you should see signs for the restaurant. The dining room is beautifully positioned at the edge... More
