We recently had dinner in this restaurant, which was located conveniently around the corner from our hotel. Overall we were very satisfied. The menu is somewhat limited.

The menu is not a big compilation of too much things to be cooked here. So expect an interesting but not so broad choice. It looks like this is on purpose. For each suggestion, the waiter is describing where the product come from, how the producer is raising his porks or cows or ... in a traditional and quality focused... More

Was recommended this restaurant by the hotel receptionist and wow was it good. The food was excellant and the wine recomended by the head waiter was superb. Everything on the menu was explained by the head waiter and was excellant quality. Would highly recommend this restaurant especially if you like fresh local seafood.

Excellent restaurant, fresh food (vegetables, fishes, ...), nice scenery (I am found of the paintings with vivid colors that brighten the room) and an atmosphere. You need to book if you want to make sure to get a table for lunch!

The place has never disappointed me. The owner always has excellent wine suggestions to fit your choice of meals. The excellent quality of the ingredients as well as the pride of the owner to work with local producers make a big difference on the overall experience. Definitely a must go if you are around Brest...

We ate here due to its proximity to our lodgings just around the corner, Hotel Abalys. My husband had a huge plate of seafood fit for royalty, and delicious and fresh. I also had fish, over buckwheat noodles in a very tasty sauce. The service was outstanding. I guess being from the US I have never had a server scrape... More

I didn't expect much but meeting some old friends. However I did experience an excellent French repas in this resto. From the entry, main menu until the desert I cannot complain. Everything was excellent! Will come again next time :)

We were pleasantly surprised... we have dined at some of the most highly regarded restaurants in France, and Europe, and did not expect such an excellent dining experience in Brest. Fish, two different orders, was excellent as was appetizer and dessert. Service was above and beyond, especially in France. Will dine here the next time we are in the region.

I had been looking for a place to have dinner with a group of friends to celebrate my friend's last night of 'freedom' before her wedding. We wanted a place where we would be able to have a delicious meal and where there would be at least one member of staff who spoke English as unfortunately none of us can.... More
