It is very nicely located, I felt a nice atmosphere, professional service even at times when the restaurat was almost full, without being overly servile and annoying like in many restaurants , they provide nicely served sea food and a variety of other plates. They...More

Don't go there for special occasions, the place is under staffed and the service is awful. Waiters are unfriendly and can make you wait 25 mins before you get your food

My experience here is limited to weekday lunchtimes, when a broad range is on offer- from an 18€ three course lunch to a single dish (for two) at 125€. Impeccable service and nice table settings-ask for a window seat when booking (essential). Thought of as...More

We took the plat de mer brezus each, i.e. 12 oysters 12 big snails, 12 small emails, lemon and a bottle of Bouchard aligote. Took half an hour to work on it all, tasty, clean and attentive service.

We bought and ate oysters just across the street at the tents first, and it was cold and windy so we went in to this place as it looked warm and welcoming (with a great view of the sea.) Service was excellent, people were very...More

Always visit here whenever we're in France. Great value set menu for €18.50 with plenty of choice. All the dishes were very good apart from the mackerel starter which wasn't as described on the menu and tasted like it was close to going off. Service...More

N'avons aucun lien avec les restaurateurs. Sommes résidents secondaires en Bretagne. Comment trouver ce restaurant cher, sachant que le menu 1er prix à 3 plats + amuse-bouche revenait encore l'été 2014 à seulement 15,90 euros, même le dimanche ! Sachant aussi que la grande bouteille de cidre était tarifée à env. 8 euros seulement. Le tout pouvant être servi sur une table avec vue mer... Service d'une rapidité assez rare. Sauf exception peut-être.
