Really nice place good atmosphere

We were staying in the Logis of which this is a part. The set menu which we both chose, was naturally seafood based and imaginative.Good value. Freshly prepared, so be prepared to wait a little, while nibbling the homemade bread rolls and sipping a drink. The décor is very pleasant and the ambience... read more

A lovely little restaurant serving lots of nice fish dishes. Great atmosphere. If you have a good appetite try the hot seafood fruits de mer . The homemade chips are lovely. I would advise booking as not a very large restaurant. There are several set menus to choose from which were good value. Helpful staff with a warm welcome. We... More

We booked this restaurant after reading the reviews and were not disappointed. We received a warm and friendly welcome. Some of the reviews mention very slow service however, the food is freshly cooked and therefor will take longer than a fast food outlet. I ordered the monkfish which I thoroughly enjoyed. It was cooked well and was very tasty. Whilst... More

The oysters are amazing, definitely worth visiting. I had oysters to start and my man had artichoke which stunning to look at. I had the salmon which could have been served hotter, but tasted lovely. He had the seafood platter which he loved and took forever to eat!!!! No room for desserts. Wine lovely, atmosphere and staff superb.

Our booking was for 8:30pm. This is a busy restaurant. A table was available by 8:45 pm. We were sat down and then completely ignored for 15 minutes. Finally 2 menus arrived. No water- nothing. This restaurant is under-staffed. We waited a further 25 minutes before our order was taken. The food was if a high quality and so it... More

Probably one of the best meals out I've ever had. Everything was absolutely delicious. The seafood platter was top quality. Everything was homemade: from the rustic bread still warm from the oven to the mayonnaise made with eggs from the owner's own hens. Staff were friendly and laid-back. Highly recommended! I'll be back.

All effort is spend on excellent and fresh material. Personnel is not so much involved in manners. They run around and surely know to arrange to serve every table on time and look how to help Guests. Clearly locals eat here and ask the kitchen to improve and listen to their special wishes. We are not so often here and... More

We had an excellent supper in this delightful.restaurant. The staff and service were exceptional and the owner found time to be a fount of interesting background on the area and it's produce. The food was of a high standard; good ingredients well cooked with imagination and style. The fish was memorable. This is our second visit and it is now... More

There are many eateries in Roscoff, from pizza, galettes, seafood, etc. This is one of the best. We have stayed in the hotel part (& eaten here) a few years ago but I think it has had a makeover - perhaps change of owners? The restaurant is now very chic in an elegant, subdued way and the food is superb.... More
