We visited Chez la Mere Pourcel on a rainy Saturday lunchtime. We were not actually planning on having a large meal but the menu was so tempting we couldn't resist going in. The restaurant was busy but we were given a very friendly welcome. We only ordered a main course but the drinks came with an amusee bouche of pate... More

We had a really enjoyable meal here. The food was great as was the decor. We had no language barriers but we do try to use our bad French as much as possible. We liked this place so much we booked New Years Eve there.

Leaving on the side some small problems regarding the language barrier otherwise nothing bad to say. The food was excellent, service was elegant and professional, the atmosphere was posh and quiet. Highly recommended!

We ate in this restaurant after finding some of the other highly recommended Tripadvisor choices fully booked. As it transpired, we were not disappointed, as the food, value and surroundings compensated for our "misfortune". At 28 Euros for the full choice of courses from the a la carte menu, the value was unbeatable. There are cheaper and more expensive options... More

I have to say that this was an exceptionally good find! The restaurant is in a 15th Century building and the food and service are very good indeed. Everything we ordered was quite delicious, I had the salmon a la facon gravadlax followed by a steak tartare which admittedly I prepared myself but the meat was well prepared and everything... More

This restaurant has it all. Beautiful building, wonderful atmosphere, exquisite food and really charming staff. Don't miss it if you visit Dinan. Very good value too.

This is just a restaurant not to be missed. We arrived late around 1.30pm and had not booked but this was not a problem we were most welcome. The service is professional and the food is excellent. I had the most delicious oysters I have ever eaten: fresh and full. The whole meal was outstanding and the wine superb. My... More

Very charming, cozy interior. Service was excellent, as was the meal. Setting reminded us of Les Miserables, the cobblestone streets and old buildings in the old city. Highly recommended.
