Delicious Food

I naturally went to this restaurant having heard it was one the best places to eat in Brest. The food was excellent, fresh and very well plated. There's just too much choice on the menu and it was hard for me to choose for everything looked very promising. They also have a very versatile wine... read more

Very glad I thought to make a reservation for Sunday lunch: it was absolutely packed by 1pm and turning people away. Proper food in a seriously good restaurant - great marriage of young but charming and professional staff with experienced and even more professional management. Best fish soup ever- perfectly balanced and seasoned. Fish cooked to perfection and served with... More

Food very fresh, great service. Try the fixed meal with the platter as the main course. The Oysters in Sauvignon are excellent well worth a try

On a recent trip to Brest, three locals recommended this restaurant , so we reserved for a Friday night dinner. Very glad we did. Service was quick and professional. We started with the fish tartare and carpaccio, which were both very good. We followed with seafood platters, one with a half lobster. Although we were two, there was enough to... More

The good news about Brest is that it is at the sea shore, fresh fish is arriving in large quantities every morning but it is not too touristic so it is still possible to have great sea food at reasonable price... Very large 'plateaux' with oysters, shells, crabs, lobster.... are served here as if they just had left the sea...... More

We had a wonderful time having dinner at this place. The seafood was very fresh and definitely the best place to have seafood. If you dont book a table just come early and enjoy the sight while waiting for the place to open.

You will not manage to find better and more tasteful oysters in your lifetime if you do not come to this place!!! Nice service, nice view, nice wine and excellent food! If you come to Brest, you should not miss this place! Reservations are necessary
