“Special Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

As soon as you enter the "garden"...decking, stones, plant pots, all designed to echo nautical theme, you will have fallen in love with this delightful restaurant.
We visited on a cold October evening after a long journey, and the restaurant was not too busy. We had a seat at the huge plate window overlooking the bay, which in day time must be the best table in Cancale.
Our St Jaques fish dish was excellent. The service, by young staff and a very personable Madame, who spoke excellent English, was flawless. The whole establishment was crisply clean, welcoming, and food which could not be faulted. As with every restaurant in France, we ponder at the price of wine. In this case, 50cl of white wine cost cost 20 euro...a bit over the top.
As I looked down on the garden cleverly alluminated around the plant pots, I commented upon the name above the gate," Sylvie et Guillaume Tirel" and commented to my husband if there could be a connection with the Tirel Guerin in the next village where we were to eat the following evening. Our land lady confirmed there is a family connection, so it was therefore no surprise that Cote Mer would know how to do things just right.
The restaurant is at the edge of Cancale, as it is approached down the one way lane following the cliffs, so is out of the hubbub of tourist Cancale, and all the better for that.
Without hesitation...go there!

“Delicious Lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2012

We had a lunch for two from the menu du jour at a table overlooking a stunning view of the bay. The staff were professional and friendly. Starter was a ravioli of goats cheese with beetroot. It was melt in the mouth and delightfully presented. Main course was baked cod with a crown of tomatoes and courgettes. The cod was fresh and tasty. The accompanying bread was excellent: crusty and chewy. Dessert was a delicious creme brulee with a delicate hint of citrus and having a light creamy texture. With a half-bottle of pouilly fume and coffees the bill came to just over EU80.00, which was good value for the quality of the food and wine. I'd dine here again.
