I was looking for a nice table to invite my parents. We left early and made a stop to Guérande, then drove to La Mare aux Oiseaux. Without GPS and and in the dark of the winter, the place was not easy to find. But finally we reach to the goal. We all choose a la carte and add great... More

Let me congratulate the Chef Eric Guerin as well as his team for a fantastic diner we had there! So far this is a 3 Star restaurant! The menu as well as the quality of service deserve it. Thank you so much for all the feelings that we had ! it was magical and poetical...

Tucked away on an island in a bird sanctuary this master chef has created a cosy hideaway in his rush thatched hotel. There are many birds around though all safe in their cages. The staff without exception worked hard to please - nothing was too much trouble. The food looked great and tasted better. The blind wine tasting with special... More

Our stay was for 4 nights. First, the location on the Ile de Fedrun is unique - beautiful & peaceful, unique architecture, etc. Second, the hotel consists of two types of accommodation - in the main building or 4 units on stilts. We were in the latter and appreciated being just a bit removed from the main building across a... More

My wife and I have eaten/stayed at this lovely restaurant/hotel 6 or 7 times during the past years and we have witnessed the changes it has undergone. The restaurant has always been superb and the waiting staff friendly, knowledgeable and professional. We had booked for 2 nights in Sept 2010 for my birthday but had to cancel due to me... More

The five course suprise menu was never worth a Michelin star. Cumulating in a lamb dish, which should never have made it on a plate in a restaurant of such a reputation. Not one single course was truly compelling. Positive was the tasteful interior design and the attentive service. Hopefully the chief had a bad day. Otherwise this Michelin star... More

we had a marvelous two nights at this establishment. One does not expect such an elegant, glamorous, even decadent place in the middle of a nature preserve, but that is what this is. We stayed here at the end of our tour of Brittany. It was the perfect end to a perfect trip. No question the food is quite expensive... More

We stayed at this hotel for just one night after a long drive from Switzerland. The place is in a very quiet area. Loved the fact that I was wakened by the farm birds, some of which appear to be rare breeds, in the morning - just check out the name of the place! The food was superb, the rooms... More

What the previous reviews have said is 100% correct. We stayed at La Mare aux Oiseaux for two nights and could not find fault with anything. From the friendliness of the staff, the quality and presentation of the food, the excellent rooms and the relaxing garden. All brilliant. Have already recommended this place to friends as a 'must' visit.
