The restaurant is down by the port with not the best of views but the food makes up for it. We started with the fruits de mer and wow half a crab each, oysters, prawns, whelks, shrimps etc and it was amazing. We then moved on to our main which was a trio of fish perfectly cooked with potatoes and... More

Visited this venue during our stay around Brest. We ordered salmon and a fish platter. Great fish! Nice service and good wines, we would certainly recommend this restaurant!

I have dined here many times over the past few decades. As usual food and service were of the best. Book if you can. We did not go for the large assiette de fruit de mer but each tried a different fish. All were very good.

Very popular fish restaurant. The view is not terrific, but ok you are in Brest so don't expect too much. We were with a group of 10 and had the plateau de fruits de mer. It was fresh, quantities and presentation were correct. So yes, I would go back although I generally don't like these mass tourist places.

We arrived at 19.30 on a Friday night. Our hotel had said that we did not need to book and the restaurant probably closed at 20.30 - nonsense on both fronts. We got the last table and had a great dinner surrounded by French families and groups eating through mountainous plates of seafood. The photographs of the outside of the... More

This restaurant is in an industrial Port area. It was excellent, well-prepared, and the service was great. There was a large choice of fresh seafood and the view was pleasant. The prices were quite reasonable and portions generous.

Fantastic meal. Formal service but they thawed a little at our attempts o speak french. Great set menu. Pricier options offer fruits de mer which is worth paying that little bit more or. Thoroughly recommend

Towering seafood platters, delicious freshwater fish perfectly prepared with delicate sauces, classy art deco exterior and luxurious interior - when in Brest, it is a must!
