My husband and I had the unique experience to have friends in Brittany and be able to visit them for the weekend. They drove us for an hour from their Île Tudy home to this restaurant for a lobster luncheon. That is an understatement. First the restaurant is situated with an incredible view of the Atlantic Ocean. We are from... More

Great seafood restaurant. Excellent service. Great view on the ocean. Must have the "Chaudron de Homards". Best lobster (Brittany blue lobster) I have ever had. Amazing sauce and plenty (we could barely finish). Don't take any starters.

After finishing his lobster, my husband commented that it was possibly one of the best meals he's ever had in a restaurant and I would easily place it in the top 10. The location is out of town near Pointe du Van with windows looking over the sea. From the outside it looks like a converted house but on the... More

Although I have visited Audierne every year for the past 13 years I have never made it to L'Etrave. Last night I did with a good friend. What a fantastic meal and what value as we had the 56 euros menu which included stuffed spider crab and a whole lobster each with a wonderful cream sauce. I regret not taking... More

An excellent restaurant, my wife had the Langoustines to start which were beyond compare. The Scallops and Monkfish are also highly recommended. Wine selection was very good as were service and the views. No English version of the menu which was another plus!

We have been coming to L'Etrave for 25 years, and while the menu varies little, everything is superb. The sauces are the secret, and closely guarded it is.

My wife and I had the grilled lobster with cream sauce and a Pouilly Fume. When we were there (Sept.2013) this and other lobster menu choices were only available for two persons; we did not suffer from this restriction. The portions were very generous. We are not normally heavy eaters but the quality of the lobster and the delicious cream... More

This was our second visit here and it lived up to expectations. Lobster dishes are absolutely fantastic and could possibly be the best for many many miles around. Service good and friendly. Well worth a trip!!!

Far west in the département Finistère (finis terrae = end of the world) close to the beautiful Pointe de Van you'll find this great place. Be sure to make a reservation, the restaurant is almost all the time fully booked and you would miss a great experience! The menu for 55€ (September 2013) gives you the choice between a very...
