We visited this restaurant in Feb14 on a week night as it was recommended to us. It's not cheap but the food was very good as was the wine and coffee. There was just one guy serving so thankfully it wasn't busy, but the service was reasonable. The menu had a fair choice of meat and fish but the... read more

Brilliant orange interior walls and rustic furniture shouldnt distract you from the excellent cuisine here. All courses were well presented especially the appetisers. The vin du moment (house wine) was very good. Cassoulet St. Jacques, large juicy scallops in sauce. Wine list short but interesting. Good service in a pleasant ambience.

Chez Erwan is a short walk from the cathedral, but well worth the extra couple of minutes to get to! They serve local Breton cuisine, excellently done. Starters are typically in the €5-€10 range, mains €15-€20, and a glass of wine is sub €4. They have a changing selection of house wines, check the mirror by the fireplace for the... More

Perfect , the hosts are excellent. Food is well cooked and represents the area. I have no complaints at all . Currently I dine there two or three times a week.i would recommend this restaurant to travellers as a fail safe venue , book or arrive before 1945 though or you may be disappointed .

The food here is typically Breton. The ingredients are all local and fresh. The owner was very helpful with suggestions and made our evening very enjoyable.

On a tour of Brittany, we were recommended to Erwan by the receptionist at the nearby Best Western hotel when we asked for a "Breton restaurant" for dinner. We walked past on a Wednesday lunchtime to see it was packed with local business people who were probably enjoying the carte du jour. Curiously, on returning in the evening, we were... More

To take care of a business person from Italy who has been with us for a week or so, I telephoned last Friday for a reservation for three people for Saturday. The person who took the call told me simply that the restaurant is closed on a Saturday. End of conversation. Then we tried to go last night (mid week... More

Fun atmosphere and decoration, excellent traditional Breton food with a modern twist. My favourite mid-price restaurant in Quimper.
