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

Just imagine being at one of the world's best places for fresh seafood not knowing that they serve the locally high recommended ocean platter cold!! The locals around me just loved it and I really know that this fish has a high quality standard, but cold giant crab, escargots, mussels and all kind of unused seafood?? It was honestly really...

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

On the quayside, right opposite the Poissonnerie with its living tanks, so the seafood is about as fresh as it can be. Prepared and presented to perfection, great atmosphere and excellent value.

We walked past this restaurant thinking it looked quite ordinary, but went back only to find it was fully booked, we waited for a table, were given a complimentary glass of Rose, the Restaurant Manager was a real professional, the short wait was well worth it, we had the set menu at only 23€ it was FANTASTIC !

We go there just for the seafood and the decision was right. For about 30 EUR you can enjoy delicious seafood platter including oysters, crab, langoustines, shrimps etc. Beside of above the perfect done fishes and duck, make this place the best for me in Brest. As restaurant is quite big the service is not the best one but ate... More

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

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.
