Excellent venue for evening meal

We were out for the evening without kids, so were looking for something other than a pizzeria. We wandered around Carnac Plague looking for somewhere nice. This place was busy and looked to have plenty of locals in it which we thought was a good sign. We weren't disappointed. We had the set menu... read more

We chose La Potiniere twice for a quick lunch time eat. It is friendly, great atmosphere with pavement tables and food is plentiful. It is in fact busy day and night as it is in the centre of a shopping area and attracts crowds of people.

Four of us had a lunch time meal in July 2015, the service was good with the waiter speaking good English which although we speak French always helps. The food was of a good standard, two of us had a steak which was large and came served on a wooden chopping board with frites, one of our party had lamb... More

We as a family stayed in Carnac for 8 days and went back to this restaurant on numerous nights for our evening meal. All the restaurants in Carnac have the same menu (give or take the odd dish) but the food in this restaurant is far better than the other eateries we tried. Not the cheapest but definitely the best... More

My friends and I visited this restaurant out of season and fairly late at night. We chose it as it had a good selection of fish dishes for the non meat eater in our party. We were shown efficiently to our table and given our menus and an explanation of the day's specials. I chose the scallops, which were served... More

Anyone who has ever tried to eat at the "wrong" time in France will know how important it is to be able to find a restaurant open on Sunday night, or on a public holiday! We went to La Potiniere last night - late evening on Whit Monday - and were not disappointed. Being a gluten-free diner is getting easier... More
