The perfect place for a proper bistros lunch in Vannes.Friendly service and excellent food every time. You get a shot of banana rum at the end and bottles of it are on display along with a lot of rather strange dolls, but don't let that distract you from the fabulous food!

Thought this choice of restaurant seemed nice, with a slightly different menu as opposed to the rest of pizzerias/brasseries/creperies etc that we had already done. The staff seemed nice (at first) and our starters were fine. When it came to the mains however, there were a mix up with our dishes. (We at first thought we just needed to swap... More
