We arrived at 7:30, famished and glad to find a restaurant open that seemed family-friendly. Food was all great (we got mussels, mushroom scallop risotto, a kids meal, and the gourmand salad), but we were not served until 9! I understand the French enjoy eating later meals but with hungry kids sitting around for an hour and a half was... More

We had a huge pot of moules/frites & a green salad to go with it. These moules were from Normandy & tiny; but they were very tender & flavorful. There were so many of them, it took us an hour to eat them all. An excellent value in a quaint restaurant. Good service. We were there early, about 7; but... More

Thank you for sharing your experience, we feel happy that you spent a nice moment. It was not the high season for mussels, but now we propose local mussels "de bouchot" from Cancale. See you next time ! More

Ly Lycorne (The Unicorn) is a great restaurant in a great little town. There are 25 varieties of mussels on the menu. I selected Moules Provencale and was rewarded with a bucket of 800 grams on moules. I substituted a green salad from the pommes frites. Others in my party had Salades Lycorn, which were very good. The place was... More

We were impressed by the fantastic service that we received yesterday at La Lycorne. We arrived with 2 young children and were seated without delay, and no apparent concern about the kids. The booster chair for our youngest quickly arrived before requesting it, and crayons and paper were supplied to keep them entertained. As the moules season was just starting,... More

On Rick Steves' guidebook advice, we tried this restaurant, noted for the 20 ways they prepare mussels. Other meals can be had as well; this is, however, their specialty. My husband chose the white wine and Roquefort and pronounced it delicious. My salad came with a bread basket which we both used to devour the delicious sauce at the bottom... More

This has established itself as our favourite restaurant in Dinan and probably one of our favourite restaurants anywhere. We were sad to see that since we had last visited, last year, Monsieur Parfait had left, but he has indeed been replaced with someone equally as polite and efficient. We were indeed fortunate on this trip to France that we were... More

The service was very helpful and spoke good English. The Scallop risotto in a Noilly Prat sauce was excellent. The ham, Camembert , salad, and wood plank was artfully done. We had to have desserts to see if everything was great (wink)-profiteroles and creme brûlée. On a pedestrian road so not noisy. Best dinner in the 2 weeks in Eastern... More

Although establishment noted for mussels, we were informed that the local ones were not good and thus imported from England. Tried a plank dinner--interesting. Server was very attentive. The Far Breton dessert was delicious.

As you mentioned it, the local mussels' season had not begun yet when you visited us, and we proposed imported ones, which are not as qualitative as the "bouchot "(local) ones. The high season goes from june to december. Thank you for your visit and for sharing your experience More
