Not an expert on French food or on the menu of this restaurant. But how lucky can a person be to have perfect dishes for all the three courses! Is it sheer luck or routine standard for the restaurant! Enjoyed the friendly, cosy and welcoming ambiance. Great service, perfect order accuracy despite of big group. Don't know the French names...

I really don't want to write this review, because I don't want the secret to get out, this place is amazing. Lovely atmosphere, no pretentions. Intimate candlelit tables. The service is superb, the food outstanding. I can't wait to visit again. Formidable!

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

This is the kind of place that if nobody told you about it, you might miss. As luck would have it we were travelling with a friend who is from DInard and knew this place very well. We had an absolutely wonderful meal here. The dishes are simple and classic, but be warned, the can be very filling...but worth the... 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.
