This restaurant is about half an hour from the St Malo ferry terminal by car. We found it with our Tom Tom very easily. It doesn't look all that good from the front as it needs to be repainted! The inside is very different. The food is excellent. We had a 3 course meal for 45 Euros. Before the first... More

Always book, asking for a table in the "terrace" part of the dining room-this way you get fabulous views over the port. The food is beyond reproach, beautifully presented on luxuriously equipped tables. The service by multi-lingual experts lives up to every expectation. High end French cuisine with more than a nod towards the nearby coast. I wouldn't want to... More

Booking is essential as this is understandably very popular, especially with locals (not quite on the beaten track of the tourist area of Dinan port, but just on the other side of the river (go over the tall viaduct to get there. The large windows overlook the Rance (ask for one of these if you can). Excellent food, nice and... More

After several weeks touring in Normandy and Brittany, this was by some way our best dining experience. Superbly cooked lamb with splendid flavour, crab and artichoke millefeuille, delicious dessert with good wines, friendly caring service and charming hosts who clearly delight in running a real French restaurant with fresh produce and great cooking. Good views over the port too. I... More

Second year visiting this restaurant, highly recommend. The service, food, the wine, the view absolutely fantastic. Visited last year with our German Shepard who slept under the table, we were made to feel welcome even with such a large dog. This year just as a couple and both visits the food has been out of this world, not cheap but... More

It is difficult to know which to mention first, the stunning views or the sublime food! With a table overlooking both the river and town of Dinan, the views in the early evening as the sun set were something special. The food was beautifully cooked, with a choice from two 'set menus' and from the a la carte menu. Our... More

How cruel and inaccurate Monsieur Trip can be. This fine family restaurant, possibly the best in town, has now sunk to #22, even below the local pizza and ice cream shops. Problem is that it's 700 meters from the center of town across the viaduct, only a very short drive, but off the map if you're a walker. It was... More

We had an excellent meal overlooking the old Port of Dinan and the River Rance. Good choice from the two table d'hote menus plus a la carte options. Very attractively presented and sensibly priced. Mon and Mme Guerneve very friendly and helpful.

We have eaten here several times and always had wonderful meals. Overlooking the old port of Dinan it has a beautiful view. The food is classic French and they know how to cook fish and make superb sauces. Friendly and helpful staff.
