Description: Le Balthazar est un Bar à vin dans lequel règne une ambiance chaleureuse et conviviale. On s'y sent comme à la maison, autour d'une bonne table, un bon verre , une bonne tartine,ou encore au comptoir, à grignoter des produits du terroirs en dégustant une bonne bière du pays, ou bien un crumble au coin du feu accompagné d'un bon thé ! On peut donc se restaurer ou simplement prendre un café , et se laisser distraire par l'ambiance, la musique ou les livres posés là pour satisfaire la curiosité du moment.

Le Balthazar is a quirky little wine bar in the old town of Paimpol which serves food. There is a good selection of wines, and some nice platters. The hot food is rustic and excellent value for money, all locally sourced. We had a huge plate of belly pork with sautéed potatoes and salad. Absolutely gorgeous and very filling! The... More

We had "palourde au chorizo" and a "salade de Bretagne". The palourde were very tasty and the salade was big. Nice and quick service. Good souvenir from britany

We went in this restaurant because we red many good reviews, but I'm very disappointed: the food is very scadent and the prices are too high for this level of restaurant. I think that there is something wrong. I like to taste everything, tipical, sofistcated, but with quality. However, this is the worst meal I did in France!

With a very charming attitude, la madame de maison explained the short, yet exquisite menu of the day in detail and recommended the perfect wine matches to go with our choices. Each one of our main courses and deserts were delicious, and the wines... Wow! Very relaxed atmosphere and absolutely worth the value.

Just had a great meal here. It was the owners' first day back after their holiday and the menu was extremely limited but this did not matter, the food was excellent! We shared a Planche followed by the Popotte, both very very good. Welcome and engagement with the owner were wonderful, shame we are not in town tomorrow night otherwise... More

The choice of dishes is not big, but it shows that the owner only picks regional products in season. I live in Paimpol and been there many times, and I have never been disapointed.
