Great oysters!

Advised by a groom in my hotel. Very fresh seafood: may be the best oysters I have ever eaten (plates de la rade), great scampi, unfortunately only average dessert. Fair price for fresh seafood but should improve on non-alcoholic beverages (e.g no green tea... mostly only white wines...)

An excellent restaurant in Brest where oysters are extremely good. Excellent fish menu and also wine menu. This is a fish restaurant, do not expect a steak. Service was excellent and prices were very reasonable. There is parking across the street. The dessert menu was also very good.

Classic restaurant, good quality products, polite waiters. This restaurant was recommended to me twice by 2 different taxi drivers, so it is a safe choice if you are looking for tasty seafood.

We were 3 adult, passionate fish eaters who went to this place based on the reviews, and admittedly had expectations. The menu is very large, the wine list medium . Starters are around the 12€ mark, mains 20-40€, set menus 18-43€, fruit-de-mer platters 30-53€, so definitely not exorbitant for a good restaurant. We waited for more than 40 min for... More

It's one of those large old fashioned restaurants with decent quality of food and good customer service. The view on the commercial port reminds you about the fishing business which I live to talk about. I wouldn't go there to watch the sunset ;)

I've been coming here a few times a year since I moved to France 8 years ago. The food is always fresh and good and the waitstaff are real professionals. My husband and I held our civil marriage ceremony in a village close by and we hosted our friends and family there for lunch after. Their starter of a gratin... More

Had an excellent meal here on the first night of our weekend trip to Brest in Brittany. We were advised to get there early, which we did, so we got a good table and by the time we left, a couple of hours later, it was rammed! The food was excellent and very good value for money. Fish was beautiflly... 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
