Don't miss this in Quimper!

Five part amuse bouche was followed by an amazing fish bouillon soup with petits legumes. The langoustines ravioli was... read more

We had a June 16 reservation booked through a site with which this restaurant works. We arrived at our booked time and found another couple who did not have a reservation standing bewildered by the closed up restaurant with delivered mail thrown outside the restaurant door. We all waited for 20 minutes with no sign of the restaurant's opening. When... More

We were there on a Saturday evening at an early time for France to eat dinner (around 19:30). The welcome was friendly. We were asked which table we preferred and were seated. The menu is a little limited with several fishes dishes and one meat dish. We took the complete menu. It was very creative in the ingredients used, tasty... More

I did not have the opportunity to have a meal at this restaurant. I did, however have the opportunity to make a reservation with their online service for a table for one on a Saturday night. But I never got a final confirmation from the online reservation service. So I called the restaurant to be told that they had received... More

This restaurant has only 20 covers and is tastefully decorated. The menu choice is limited and as a solo traveller, the meat dish on the menu Breton was for 2 people and therefore I had no choice. I think they should review the menu options to make sure the single traveller is catered for. Tables for 2 would also both... More

We went to L'Ambroise for lunch in August 2014. From the moment we walked in we were enchanted. The dining area is like an exquisitely decorated living room. We loved the fresh green and white table setting and the beautiful white flower arrangements The wine matches suggested by the staff were spot on. The mother and daughter serving team were... More

A quiet location, a small intimate restaurant, perhaps a little too quiet for my liking but a great wine list, superb food, beautifully seasoned, a chef who blatantly knows what he's doing. some spectacular dishes, the tartare of dorade was fresh inviting, and was demolished, the foie gras and I'ts accompanied Brioche, were amazing and the pigeon done in a...

Very nicely prepared fish, fresh and original. The Sancerre wine, organic, was lovely as well. We loved the amuses bouches. Who would have thought that a strawberry-tomate gaspacho worked well with a semi raw tuna? Lovely and original flavours. No, it is not meant for people who want a pound of microwaved food of dubious origin in their plate. It... More
