Went here on way back to hotel and spoke to waitress who said to come back when they opened. Went back when they opened and were told we needed a reservation - which we did not have so we could not go in. Disappointing as we could have made one on the first visit. Passed by later and the place... More

We went to this restaurant on Bastille day 2016 and hence it was pretty busy. Even at the height of the frantic work of the team the quality of the food was spot on! The meat is the best I have tasted across Brittany! Thanks for a great meal.

Steaks, duck, pidgeon, various types of offal - a thorough menu based on red meat. The accompaniement is potatoes in their skins and a green salad. While dinner is cooking the apperitif is served with canapes of pâte which is delicious. Good wine list and some tasty traditional deserts. I ordered pigeon borh times i've been here - very tasty...

Went there with business contacts after a local had recommended it. The steak was excellent, cuisson as requested. Wine list at the correct price and service very correct. The brasserie atmosphere is attractive for larger groups and families too.

The quay at Brest is rich in fish restaurants so for a welcome change we tried Le Boeuf sur Le Quai. It tucked in away from the quay in a most unlikely spot - but do not be put off. The inside is warm and welcoming with a blazing grill in the background where one can watch the steaks being... More
