Wonderful seafood choucroute in a stone house on the riverside. Absolutely delicious and generous portions. I sat inside but there are also tables overlooking the river

If you are in Dinan, do not miss the opportunity to experience one of the best all round restaurants I have visited. Friendly, involving attitude to customers, excellent balanced menu and inspired cooking with well thought through presentation. A good balanced wine list, well chosen wine and realistic pricing all presented in a natural, relaxed but not over familiar style... More

Sometimes you get lucky and on this occasion we certainly did. This is a fabulous, family-run restaurant that is virtually part of the old stone bridge that crosses the River Rance. We managed to book one of the three tables at the very front of the covered terrace overlooking the river. But this was only the start of the pleasure.... More

We noticed this restaurant after we had finished lunch at Café Terrace and made reservations for dinner that evening. This is your typical French restaurant with cozy tables. My husband ordered Moules de Espana. The mussels were served in a tomato, chorizo, red pepper, cream, garlic and onion broth. The sauce was marvelous and the mussels done to perfection. I... More

We try to come here whenever we are in the area and it never fails to impress. The service is second to none, and on our last visit my partner dropped a fork on the floor and the waiter appeared with another one within seconds. The terrace overlooks the river and it's a lovely setting. Fish is always very good... More

We ate here on our second night of 6 weeks in Dinan at the recommendation of our landlords. By far one of the friendliest and charming dinners we have had in a long while. The staff was extremely pleasant and patient with my crappy French, teasing and playing along with my attempts. The food was superior, the service attentive and... More

Overlooking the Rance River, this is a small restaurant that appears popular with the locals. Although there are several Briton specialities on the menu, I had a very fresh goat cheese and vegetable salad which was superb. For dessert, the tarte tatin was amazing; be sure to order at the beginning of the meal. The owners have a distinct presence... More

This restaurant offers a variety of local specialties and has an extensive wine list. We enjoyed both the food and the location and felt we received a great value for the price. Once you have finished eating and you wander outside, you are right on the edge of an ancient stone bridge on the Rance River. It makes you feel... More
