My family and I were driving back from Yverdon to Bern and stopped for lunch in the impressive Medieval town of Avenches. After a short wander around the old town (ghost-town-quiet on a Sunday), we happened upon Restaurant des Arcades with its lovely outdoor patio looking down onto the main street. (I did a quick check of the interior and it looked fine but not quite as charming.) After a tasty amuse-bouche of pickled anchovies on toast and a couple of simple "green" salads (good dressing), we eventually settled into superbly cooked fish dishes: the kids and husband had small portions of the famous Swiss lake fish "egli" (perch in English, perche in French) served with an outstanding mixed-herb butter sauce. The kids had starter portions served with boiled potatoes, husband had same but also with a few greens and some match-stick fries ("frites allumettes"). I had the mackerel tartare which was very much like cerviche, also served with the match-stick fries as well as toast. Oh, we drank a very fine local beer (bottle) from Oleyres - some four kilometers from Avenches. Feeling very good about the extremely well-prepared, delicately served fish dishes, we went onto desserts. Again, it was three to one: I had a mouth-watering little custard "tartlette" with read berries. Again beautifully presented. The others stuck with various ice-creams (all made locally). The service was impeccable - the kind of professional service one gets used to here: friendly but not unctuous. A charming male waiter and an equally lovely females waiter. With water and a coffee, it all rounded off to just under CHF200 - Swiss pricey but really a superb Sunday lunch in a fantastic setting.
