Whilst we don't mind splashing out this restaurant was expensive, whilst the food was good quality the portions were very small. We enjoyed the top class servicee

We phoned to reserve a Sunday lunch in July, to fit in with an 1200km Journey from the South of France to Cherbourg. The Chef/Owner took my reservation by phone (as you cannot email!); I offered him a Credit Card and my mobile phone number, which he refused, saying the phone booking was good enough.This was 6 weeks in advance....

The place is just by the beach at the end of the jetty. The setting is modern and designed with taste. From almost everywhere in the restaurant you will have a view on the bay of the Mont St Michel. The service if efficient, kind and professional. The owner will surely come by a few times to check that everything... More

Cancale is very touristic, which means that there are dozen of "mainstream" restaurants. Coté Mer is happily the exception: it's at the very beginning of the seaside road, well before the cramped and chaotic area begins, and it offers both a classy dining room with excellent view and good food for who wants more than the usual touristic menu. And... More

Tripadvisor, thank you. This is an excellent restaurant. We went here when we stayed for a few nights at Mont Saint Michel. In that place, we were unable to find any restaurant that was not a tourist trap. The trip to Cancale - a beautiful place to visit - takes about 45 minutes by car and it was worthwhile. Couples...

Superb fruit de mer and food in general, excellent wine and service, great view on the seaside. Impressive price, much lower than expected. I went there with the family, including two under 5s. We really wanted to eat the fruit de mer and thus we had to order them 48h in advance. Everything was perfect, including the friendly service despite... More

We have visited this restaurant before but this time found the new menu not so good with some very strange combinations like a lovely portion of cod with a sausage of the pigs stomach which over powered the fish though it is a local delicacy. We mentioned this to the staff.

Many places in Cancale are near the water, but most have parked cars between their premises and the sea. Cote Mer is an exception, as it is a bit out of town and is about 10 meters up the hill. Their food was just great, even the smaller menu for 30 Euros was a hit. The owner personally greats all... More

Fantastic sea-view from the covered terrace but the real show is in the plates... Delicate, rare ingredients cooked and presented with great care. We had a very pleasant lunch but found service rather slow and felt forgotten on a number of occasions. At about 70 euros a head, one likes to be cared for.
