This restaurant is located out of town just next to the famous Carnac standing stones and it is definitely worth looking for it. It is honestly one of the best meal I ever had. There were four of us,with different dishes, and we all agreed...that the quality of the food is frankly exceptional and would well be worth a Michelin star. The menu priced at 39€ is exceptional value for money. Service is extremely attentive and friendly. Definitely a must visit if you are in the region. Heartfelt congratulations to the Chef and the whole staff for the great job done. Hope to come back sooner than later.More

Visited the restaurant while on holiday in Brittany. By far the best food we've had so far. The pork and lobster were both fantastic. Would highly recommend!! C'est tres bon!

Lovely dinner at this great spot just outside Carnac. Very good experience, food was excellent and service to match. A pleasant rustic garden to sit in with tables dotted around. Very much enjoyed our evening in good surroundings and excellent dining.

I really wanted to love this restaurant and chose it for my husband's 70th birthday specifically because of its lobster menu. We reserved well in advance. When we arrived, the first thing we learned was that there were no lobsters left. We took another menu...that included a series of appetizers and choice of dessert. Before we ordered, there was an amuse-bouche. a cream soup with salmon rillettes. After we ordered, there was another soup of beet with ginger and whipped cream, delicious but rich. Our first course arrived, foie gras rolled around dried fruits and nuts, together with boudin noir, grilled apple and a quail thigh. All was perfect, but together was too much. But then we had an entree based on fish, excellent and fresh, and a third, a cold cream puff filled with Roquefort cheese and walnuts. When the waitress came to take the dessert choices, I hesitated. But finally I chose a Mandarin orange dessert , expecting sorbet, and Patrick took the crepes Suzette. The. crepes were terrific, but the Mandarin cake, tasty as it was, was topped with more whipped cream and a disc of white chocolate. In a series of small dishes such as this, there has to be some consideration of the levels of richness. We could have done without soups and the boudin, and the puff with Roquefort was too heavy before dessert (maybe better with less cheese and warm). My apologies to the chef--each effort was original--but the sum was too much. Service was lovely and attentive without hovering.More

If you’re fighting the freezing winds at the megaliths, find your way to this restaurant for a long, but unforgettable lunch. Another surprise in a tourist zone that offers creative, beautiful plate. A seared ahi starter with whimsical garnishes. A local fresh fish, and a...tender pork dish were included in the 2 hour experience.More

A simple 3-course lunch of the highest quality, this meal was at the cheaper end of the menu but every part of it was a delightful surprise. Possibly the most comprehensive wine list I have ever seen. Service was perhaps a little slow but slow...food is perhaps the best. This was a birthday lunch where cost was not a consideration.More

Living next to this restaurant for a week we on ventured on the last night as we thought it would just cater for holiday makers (pizza), wrong! Superb food with a nice atmosphere.
