“Excellent stop when visiting Saint Nazaire”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2014

We came across Le Ponton when visiting St Nazaire for the Operation Chariot raid. Le Ponton is located under one of the U-Boat pens which are also worth visiting. As regards to Le Ponton the food and service was excellent and we paid it a second visit later in the day!

“Brittany Trip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2014

Super little brasserie built under one of the submarine pens and close to the attractions there. Very friendly service with excellent food and can get very busy with local workers mixed with visitors. We ate there twice and can thoroughly recommend it

“Okay to fill the hunger”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2014

Really good entree (quiche), quite poor plats (duck (tough) and vendee jambon (salty)). Good wine by the carafe and good coffee. Good, friendly service. Interesting setting right inside a hall of the U-Boat bunker. Okay to fill the hunger.
