Our dinner at Allium was one of the best of the trip. Allium is a beautiful restaurant, with an herb garden and a statuary outside the window. It’s in a beautiful setting right near the river on the outskirts of Quimper. We both ordered the...More

Excellent venue, service, food, presentation, wine and value. Each of the many carefully composed and delicious courses was presented in a manner suggestive of a flower arrangement. We enjoyed a delightful relaxed lunch. Allium has relatively few tables and so the general environment is not...More

Just marvelleous. My wife and me went to the restaurant some days ago. The food was wonderful and the wine list is very good and affordable. They even created two surprise menus (since I do not favour fish) and the owner drove us back to...More

We visited and greatly enjoyed M. and Mme Henaff's previous restaurant, the Roseraie at Pluguffan, several times over a period of years, so visited the Allium for the first time with high hopes. We were not disappointed. The restaurant's theme is Cuisine Nature, which involves...More

New-ish restaurant, with Michelin star. Obviously talented chef preparing fresh local food, that when it arrived was very good. But, we waited over 30 minutes before we even saw a menu or got a bottle of water and another 30mins before the amuse bouche arrived!...More

You can't go far in France without falling over a Michelin star restaurant but here's one with a story (husband and wife team) and a cause - to eat as we used to.. straight from the garden. Superb presentation. Surprising and delightful combination of tastes....More
