“An excellent regional dining experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2011

On a tour of Brittany, we were recommended to Erwan by the receptionist at the nearby Best Western hotel when we asked for a "Breton restaurant" for dinner. We walked past on a Wednesday lunchtime to see it was packed with local business people who were probably enjoying the carte du jour. Curiously, on returning in the evening, we were two of only four customers. Nevertheless, the meal was both interesting and memorable. Erwan is well worth a visit.

“Contradiction in terms - more "Sans Erwan"”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2011

To take care of a business person from Italy who has been with us for a week or so, I telephoned last Friday for a reservation for three people for Saturday. The person who took the call told me simply that the restaurant is closed on a Saturday. End of conversation.

Then we tried to go last night (mid week Wednesday) and simply walked there in a twosome with a third expected to join us later. We stood outside the door and saw that there was a man inside, but the door was locked - this was just before 7pm. The man inside saw us waiting and came to the door, opened it and told us that we would have to wait another twenty minutes or so because it was "ferme" and not yet open. He closed the door and went back inside! We waited another ten minutes whilst he just sat there at a table, doing nothing. Incredulous at his outright rudeness, we left, and went elsewhere.

Our third person went to Chez Erwan, however, and went inside to find us and sat down telling the man that she was expecting two other people. He said that they had been here earlier, had gone away but would come back! She called us to find out where we were and I told her to join us at the restaurant we had settled down in! So she left Chez Erwan.

Clearly, these guys do not want our business! So, it is difficult to rate their fare, but we can rate their desire for clientele - they do not have such a desire.

We shall not "try" to go there again.

“Delicious and fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2009

Fun atmosphere and decoration, excellent traditional Breton food with a modern twist. My favourite mid-price restaurant in Quimper.
