Disappointing

Over priced and lacking in atmosphere found the waiter to be a little condescending of my French - which I thought I spoke quite well!

Friendly bilingual staff who accepted my French with grace. Clams in butter & garlic sauce, cod and potato pie, wild boar in cream & mushroom sauce and apple tartin. All were superb. The view from upstairs is lovely, the coffee great. The manager telephoned 8 different taxi companies without any drama to find a taxi to take us to Quimper.... More

Went there for our last meal in Benodet with my wife, daughter, son in law, granddaughter 6 and son in law 1. We tried the set menus which appeared to be reasonably priced but the experience was spoilt by the waitress taking all our orders plus two other tables with out writing it down and getting every one of our...

For a tourist restaurant the food is exceedingly good and reasonably priced. There are 2 set menus with a variety of choices for 3 course varying starting at just over 20 euros. The Ile flotant pudding is to die for..... Recommend the outside terrace on the first floor as has great views, a nice breeze and lovely waitresses all of... More

We've probably eaten here about eight times in the past ten years and never been disappointed with the food. Benodet depends heavily on tourist trade and the restaurants on the harbourside seem totally dependent on visitors. So, La Croisette caters almost entirely for tourists, so the menus and prices are set accordingly. But the food (unsurprisingly, mainly seafood dishes) is... More

A nice sea food restaurant in Benodet. Mussels were very good (although sitting outside in September attracted lots of wasps and flys). Service good and quick

In fairness to La Croisette, my son had a Fruit de mers which was superb, however the other three in our party had the most expensive table d'hôte menu and it was a shocker. Appallingly dry over cooked fish, miserable dry bits of carrot orange rice accompanied all. Our Breton starter was a particular horror, the scallops must have been... More
