We were for a drink at the la base. Nice view to the river. But the stench at the facilities was disgusting.

Went here when visiting the submarine base. Didn't expect much as there is little competition close by. A great surprise to have a great meal, good service and good value. The lamb brochettes was delicious.

We expected a rather grim tour of the submarine "Flore" and its museum and were delighted by the presentation and the clever technology we used. Great for older children and reasonably mobile adults. Good facilities adjacent and a superb children's' play area adjacent for them...More

This is the obvious place to eat while visiting the various attractions at the Lorient submarine and yachting base. The service was quick and the food was good.

Along with 4 other equally massive U boat bunker bases, hundreds of Allied attacks by air failed to even slightly damage the sub pens, resulting from the ingenious 7 - layer roof system to protect against penetrating explosions. Not to be missed. For advance preparation...More
