By now the sky is turning a gorgeous pink and we move inside, but the view is as stunning because of the huge glass windows.
I start with a perches tartare prepared with avocado and a mango vinaigrette – (the perches for the tartar actually come from a farm in Valais). It’s my first perches tartare – so, I can’t compare it to anything, but it has a lovely, fresh taste. (CHF36)
My husband enjoys a beautifully presented goat’s cheese and beetroot salad (CHF17) served with yummy home baked bread. For the main dish, I enjoy the filets du perche with a lemony butter (these ones really are from Lac Leman, the chef assures us) and served with a trio of delicious sauces – chimichurri, tartar and delicious spicy “thousand lakes” sauce. It also comes with a generous portion of spicy fries. (CHF46)
The last time I had filets de perches meunière at a well-known restaurant, I couldn’t eat for 2 days afterwards because it was so drenched in butter.
This time, the fish is delicately cooked with a light buttery taste, but without overdoing it.
My husband has a matured rib-eye steak, which is served with broccoli, but the meat is tender and yummy. La Voile also serves different versions of the Swiss potato dish – rösti, which would be a good side for this dish.
