Marvelous food, beautiful room, oddly inattentive service

We had four courses here for dinner, and every one was spectacular or very close. The room is charming and the atmosphere is perfect. It was a very special evening . . . except for the strangely inattentive service. Our plates were not cleared at all quickly, our jug of table water was never... read more

Cafe Breton was almost empty when we walked in early on a Wednesday night. Not a good sign, we thought. We needn't have worried. Half an hour later we wouldn't have got a table. The place seemed to be run by two or three people, yet the service was efficient and friendly. Simple, genuinely French food at affordable prices. Like... More

In fact I took two colleagues with me... One of them was pregnant so had to steer away from certain things - but had a fantastic risotto. I opted for the slate of foie gras, steak tartare and other wee delights. Before tucking into a wonderful fish dish. My other colleague had a lovely Breton dish that I forget the... More

We had a great dinner here - both lamb and fish were very good as well as the entrees and dessert. We liked the ambience of this cozy place and the service - we initially had to sit outside but when a table became available we were offered the opportunity to sit inside. I'll denudi tele recommend this place.

We had such a great spread of food - from Fois Gras to langoustine, to atlantic fish I had never heard of...again great wine (as is to be expected). Wonderful decor, slightly cramped but well worth seeking this place out. And eating well for a good price. I will be stopping off here on my trip to France with my... More

The choice of starters for two was delicious, but my main course was hardly edible. It was completely undercooked. I hardly got an apology and of course it appeared on the bill. We will definitely not return.
