We decided to have some moules et frites here before venturing back to our Gite. Very very nice, as was the cheeseplate. Service was friendly too. Great spot for people watching!

Have been coming back to this place regularly and at different times of the year. It never disappoints. Even in the rush of a Friday night in August the service is friendly and attentive.

Had lunch here, chose fish soup and then filé mignon. Both were disappointing. Will not come back, even if staff were friendly.

Excellent food at a reasonable cost with attentive service in a small restaurant located within the castle boundaries. Well worth a visit.

One of the highlights of our visits to Brest. The fruits de mer is just outstanding, the family wanted to go shopping so I spent a couple of lazy hours grazing through a variety of wonderful seafood, drinking fabulous wine. Sublime.
