A nice small restaurant with friendly staff. No fancy multi language menu's instead dishes for the day displayed on boards which are removed when sold out. This means to me you are getting fresh seasonal produce & the taste proves it. Hearty size portions full of flavour & a very good wine list. This is a super place to eat.

This is a resto you go to because you're hungry and you want a good-sized tasty meal without the gastro protocol dance. It does that perfectly, at the price you expect. Recommended.

Le menu was good value and tasty, decent wine and attentive service, no problems. Local scallors were excellent as was my fish and tarte tatin. Pretty much what i expect in Brittany. Worth a visit.

Having read the other reviews of La marmite we were expecting good rustic homely cooking, how wrong we were! We stayed in Morlaix 6 nights & eat in a different place every night. We both had the fish dish, tasteless & full of bones served in an insipid orange coloured sauce accompanied by a brown/grey couscous ,tasteless. The service was... More

simply say "awesome" .A small and quiet place, a few minutes from the square, La Marmite responds to everyone's expectation of a retaurant should be. We orded the mussel marriniere, the fish dish (forgive me I don't remember the name and the salade chevre chaud. The answer is " Awesome". The" patate frite", well.. we don't Fried Potatoes, but nothing... More
