Just returned from a lovely evening out. Excellent food and service. We had sardines, lamb / duck and finished with a lovely rum dessert. Quality and quantity was perfect and wouldn't hesitate to go back, budget allowing.

This was a place recommended to us by the locals, & we could see why. Soon as we came through the door, we were struck by the look of the room, the view of the old port from the terrace, & the friendly & helpful staff. We immediately booked a table on the terrace for that evening, & what turned... More

we visited in 2011 and this restaurant is on our list to return this year. Yes, the view is beautiful but it isn't necessary for our top rating. The service was excellent, the atmosphere welcoming, the food memorable. we shall return !

Upon arrival I was not surprised by the building itself, but by the wonderful view to the old city of Dinan (in my opinion one of the most lovely in Brittany). We were welcomed by The maitre himself, who was helping out his staff at that time. Inside, the decoration is very charming and cosy, nothing is left by chance...... More

Wedged between the edge of the gorge and the heavily trafficked viaduct this is an unlikely spot for a restaurant; it just goes to show that when you get pretty well everything right, it really doesn’t matter where you are. The instant you walk through the door you know that it’s something special, a sort of picture book retro of... More

In addition to a view of Dinan lit up at night, le Bistrot offered two delicious meals, fine wines, a friendly helpful waiter, and a solicitous host who persuasively pretended to find our French adequate. Overhearing our dinner conversation, the host presumed to introduce us to the other couple (from England) dining there that evening, with whom we shared an... More

There was a warm welcome and the decor is very attractive with a wonderful view. (check out the website). The food was marvellous, scallops, pigeon both perfect, and delicious desserts. There was also a huge choice of fish dishes. We have eaten at many Dinan restaurants and this was the best food, but it is quite expensive - worked out... More

We have been staying in Dinan for a golfing week, most years since 2000, and enjoyed dining in most of the restaurants. There is certainly a very good selection, but Le Bistrot du Viaduc is our favourite for a number of reasons. The menu choice is excellent, the atmosphere friendly & relaxed and the food superb. The views are stunning,... More

Ordered pave of beef. It was so tough it was enedible. Complained quietly but was treated with disdain by superior waiter. Told that they never receive complaints. Well they have now!
