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!
