The atmosphere here was very good. We visited during the third week of September and this was about a 20 minute drive away from where we were staying in Auray. Although the weather wasn't great we opted to dine in the covered outdoor section; however with the heaters is was plenty warm enough to sit comfortably. There is a wide... More

The steak tartare had no flavour at all. i gave up eating it as I could only taste mustard and the leaf parsley. The burger was nothing special and once again bland in flavour. Basically the beef seemed to be flavourless.

Very friendly and warm atmosphere. Good english spoken by all staff. English menus also available. We visited on two occasions. The first evening my husband had the camembert with caramel/nuts - absolutely scrummy. I had mussels, he had spinach/ricotta lasagna. The mussels were plentiful and the frites were lush. The drinks were reasonably priced. The second evening, I had a... More

My girlfriend and I visited this restaurant one evening on our holidays in France. The service was friendly and helpful without being overbearing, and the food was excellent. Thoroughly recommend this place.

Visited here several times as food and serviCe was great. The menu covered a wide variety of cuisines and was always speedy service, if they were busy they would make sure you were aware of wait times. Food always came out as great quality. Compared to other areas it's reasonably expensive, but for the area and the portions you get... More

We have visited La Potiniere on several occasions whilst holidaying near to Carnac. We have always found the food and the service excellent. The waiting staff are always cheerful and there is something for everyone on the menu. One of the most unusual things is the way that the waiting staff take your order, they write nothing down and somehow... 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.

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 and the food was very good.... More
