We were staying just across the road at the Hotel Printania, so it was really easy to find this lovely little restaurant. The owner asked us at the outset if we needed help with the menu: at first we said we were OK, but translating some of the French names for the fish was beyond us, so he explained each... More

Nice restaurant not fancy.good fresh fish. Candles as table light. Nice and kind owner. Average Price. Dishes not so sophisticated but kind of home cousine. Kind of fish depends on what available daily.

This smaller restaurant carries a very distinct local character and color, and sports a superb kitchen. My wife and I were there over ten years ago and fell in love with the place. When we went back last week to find it there, still under the same manager/owner, we were exhilarated. Excellent kitchen, very personal attention. Highly reommended.

Delicious food, great atmosphere and friendly staff. A brilliant change from all the hotel restaurants and formal places to eat in Dinard. It was the best meal we had in Dinard, highly recommended.
