Make sure you book your table at least one day in advance, it's busy and the food quality underlines why. Not a cheap place to eat but a reasonable variety of plates on the seafood focuses menu. Seafood we had was cooked to perfection.....not much else to say !

My wife is not a great seafood fan. She will not attempt shellfish. So to visit a Breton eatery specialising in seafood might be pushing things a bit too far. But her fish soup for starters augured well while I settled for a plate of Whelks. Her main of Pollack was only surpassed by my Chouxcroute de la mer which... More

It is nice when you find somewhere with good food, wine and service. The menu offered interesting dishes and the owner was extremely helpful and friendly. We were offered some homemade bread and sliced pork which they smoke themselves while we were choosing from the menu. They also smoke their own fish. We had scallops, prawns and several fish dishes... More

We were staying in the Logis of which this is a part. The set menu which we both chose, was naturally seafood based and imaginative.Good value. Freshly prepared, so be prepared to wait a little, while nibbling the homemade bread rolls and sipping a drink. The décor is very pleasant and the ambience relaxing. Live crustaceans can be chosen from... More

A lovely little restaurant serving lots of nice fish dishes. Great atmosphere. If you have a good appetite try the hot seafood fruits de mer . The homemade chips are lovely. I would advise booking as not a very large restaurant. There are several set menus to choose from which were good value. Helpful staff with a warm welcome. We... More

We booked this restaurant after reading the reviews and were not disappointed. We received a warm and friendly welcome. Some of the reviews mention very slow service however, the food is freshly cooked and therefor will take longer than a fast food outlet. I ordered the monkfish which I thoroughly enjoyed. It was cooked well and was very tasty. Whilst... More

The oysters are amazing, definitely worth visiting. I had oysters to start and my man had artichoke which stunning to look at. I had the salmon which could have been served hotter, but tasted lovely. He had the seafood platter which he loved and took forever to eat!!!! No room for desserts. Wine lovely, atmosphere and staff superb.

Our booking was for 8:30pm. This is a busy restaurant. A table was available by 8:45 pm. We were sat down and then completely ignored for 15 minutes. Finally 2 menus arrived. No water- nothing. This restaurant is under-staffed. We waited a further 25 minutes before our order was taken. The food was if a high quality and so it... More

Probably one of the best meals out I've ever had. Everything was absolutely delicious. The seafood platter was top quality. Everything was homemade: from the rustic bread still warm from the oven to the mayonnaise made with eggs from the owner's own hens. Staff were friendly and laid-back. Highly recommended! I'll be back.
