We reserved a table overlooking the lake and were not disappointed as the sun set over the lake and the lights on the lake gave a magical touch to the scene. Our appetizer to spread on the bread was yogurt, cream cheese with horseradish and dill-delicious.We had the fillet of perch, locally sourced vegetables, a local white wine from Mt... More

We liked the lunch experience here so much we came back a couple of days later for an encore. Great fish entrees. Good local wine. Very helpful and friendly staff well versed in food and fluent in English. Wonderful enclosed terrace with view over the lake (if possible reserve ahead to ensure getting a table next to the window).

Ate here on the advice of Rick Steves guide - glad we did. Sat outside on terrace overlooking lake with sun setting - amazing view. They had inside seating with all glass wall that could open also but we chose outside. Service was excellent - just the right pace for us but we weren't in a hurry. Two of us... More

Enjoyed our excellent meal with superb lake view at the Murtenhof. Not for budget travelers but the food and service were very good. Would dine here again.

The view is the big draw here-- ask for a table overlooking the lake. We both had the tasting menu (mine was the vegetarian version) and overall we were happy. His pumpkin soup with fresh butter was the best course. My fish entree with beans was also very light and refreshing. Desserts were forgettable. The wine was different with every... More

We stopped here one Friday night on our way back to Bern from Geneva. Other than the two large tables of locals celebrating a birthday, the rest of the clientele were tourists which should have rung alarm bells, especially as all the other eateries along the charming Murten main street were bustling with residents. However we were drawn by the... More

The view from the inside is great. Service was excellent, the restaurant has English menu and English speaking waiters. Tasting menu with wine pairing is great value. We went with fish choices, and enjoyed our food and it's presentation. Dogs are welcome inside the restaurant.

We'd cycled here and fancied a beer so we left our bikes just by the entrance to the terrace and turned up in our shorts and t-shirts to the outdoor seating area. We were warmly welcomed and no problem with a dress code! It was early afternoon and people were still eating lunch but no one batted an eyelid. We... More

We had the special Mother's Day meal with wine. We especially enjoyed the local fish and the asparagus. The service was excellent. We did fine the outdoor dining area a little noisy with the children's riding toy area.

Been there recently with friends, we had a lovely tasty meal. The service was very fast, and so friendly, we hardly find this kind of big smiles here. If you ever go there don't miss the "fondant au chocolat" it is like a piece of heaven :)
