“Worth a Visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2014

We visited this restaurant in Feb14 on a week night as it was recommended to us. It's not cheap but the food was very good as was the wine and coffee. There was just one guy serving so thankfully it wasn't busy, but the service was reasonable. The menu had a fair choice of meat and fish but the wine list was quite short. All in all I think this is a decent restaurant and worth a visit if you're in Quimper.

“Breton beauty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013 via mobile

Brilliant orange interior walls and rustic furniture shouldnt distract you from the excellent cuisine here. All courses were well presented especially the appetisers. The vin du moment (house wine) was very good. Cassoulet St. Jacques, large juicy scallops in sauce. Wine list short but interesting. Good service in a pleasant ambience.

“Amazing Breton food in a great restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

Chez Erwan is a short walk from the cathedral, but well worth the extra couple of minutes to get to! They serve local Breton cuisine, excellently done. Starters are typically in the €5-€10 range, mains €15-€20, and a glass of wine is sub €4. They have a changing selection of house wines, check the mirror by the fireplace for the current list - they're written up on there!

Staff were friendly and helpful, funky vibe, and with the great food it's well worth a visit!

“Erwin”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013 via mobile

Perfect , the hosts are excellent. Food is well cooked and represents the area. I have no complaints at all . Currently I dine there two or three times a week.i would recommend this restaurant to travellers as a fail safe venue , book or arrive before 1945 though or you may be disappointed .

The food here is typically Breton. The ingredients are all local and fresh. The owner was very helpful with suggestions and made our evening very enjoyable.
