Carnac is a busy resort, today crammed with people, noisy and full of excitement. What a great treat then to step into La Potiniere and enter a quality restaurant where, although busy, there was an air of quiet capability. The menu is extensive and, like all the others hereabouts, is studded with quality seafood. You can have the obligatory moules... More

Visited on the strength of the reviews below. Nice service, well-placed for people watching. Got a table in seconds, to our surprise. We ordered tagliatelle and were again surprised that our meals arrived so quickly. However, not more than average, I am afraid. We must have been spoiled by all the other restaurants we had eaten in after a few... More

What a super restaurant! We ate here on our first night in Carnac and were pleasantly surprised at how good the food was. We subsequently went back five more times, including the evening of the France-Portugal footy final. What a great atmosphere that was, we spent the whole evening in the restaurant watching the match on a big screen and... More

We unfortunately had to wait for a while until the kitchen opened, but the food was very good. I had a tuna steak that was nicely done, not overcooked, and my wife had a steak that was equally nice. The cafe gourmand is recommendable.

Friendly staff who have good english and try to understand your french! Reasonably priced. Good atmosphere. We are early eaters so didn't have the problem of queuing to go in, so... More

We walked around a few restaurants in Carnac Plage before choosing La Potiniere. We passed by in the morning and even when closed it looked a clean and pleasant place to visit. We were not disappointed. In the evening it was certainly the most crowded restaurant with people queuing to get a table. There is a good choice of food... More
