We found this restaurant quite by accident and enjoyed a wonderful meal outside while listening to jazz.

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

Visited here during a rainy evening and had a very nice steak- having had fish for the last few days. Good staff and a simple menu made it just what we needed. Nothing fancy, but good simple cooking presented well. Recommended

Our hotel gave us a list of restaurants in Vannes for our 3 night stay. This was the best of those we tried - a very nice meal and friendly service.

A review of this restaurant would be incomplete without mention of the ludicrous number of ugly little dolls which are literally everywhere you look. I found them quite unnerving! There are also large bottles containing unidentifiable objects preserved in a brown liquid. Our steaks were very nicely cooked, the fish soup was tasty but the salmon pâté was unseasoned and... More

Stopped in Vannes en route to Caen. Followed trip advisor's advice and sought out this restaurant. Can honestly say this was just perfectly cooked and presented food. The steak I ordered was melt in the mouth good and the attention to detail was thoroughly executed. My husband's meal was also perfect. I would eat here again and again..if you're in... More
