The mussels with chorizo were delicious as a starter, as was the steak au poivre. All served in a beautiful backdoor garden with pools of goldfish and a playful turtle. Exceeded our expectations on a Monday night when almost everything in town is closed.

we have eaten here many times and always had superb food and service. The hotel has a lovely courtyard garden with fishponds and large plants. Every seating area is individual and private. One can also sit inside where the decor is Breton modern style. the fish is sea fresh and wonderfully prepared . The desserts are to die for. All... More

We had a really bad experience at Sud Bretagne Hotel's Restaurant. First the service was not what you can expect from a four stars Hotel/Restaurant : very slow even though the room was not full. And we were close to english speaking customers and the waitress was not doing any effort to talk english to explain the menu. Next, the... More

I found the restaurant to be very good. The menu though limited catered for a good variety but I have to say the food was excellent. Typical for the area in its choice of plenty of seafood though I had duck fois gras followed by the lamb and an exquisite desert (set menu) with a couple bottles of wine I... More

We came to Pornichet hoping to find a great selection of restaurants, but they all seem to be shut in early September. The Hotel was open and offered an enticing menu for €35. A great selection of fish & seafood starters and main, with a sprinkling of beef (lamb only on the à la carte). We both chose the langoustines... More

Variety of the menu is very good with a daily "Catch of the day" on offer. I always find it hard to select just one item as all of it is mouth watering.

This restaurant belongs to the hotel and offers a very nice and warm decoration, with red velvet. There is a great selection of sea food (in particular scallops) and fresh fishes from the atlantic. The selection is rather small but I wasnt disappointed by the quality and freshness of food. It is almost a gastronomical restaurant. The desert menu is... More

We went there with friends. It's nicely decorated, modern and classy. The food is good, especially for those who like fish and sea food. One thing they could improve though is the attitude. Nothing really wrong but we felt they were expecting us to leave quickly, before midnight since they have to prepare the tables for breakfast ...Since it's quite... More

All positive impressions I have from my staying at Sud Bretagne hotel in my journey around France have been mainly left by this really good restaurant. For that moment (2005) it was the only point in Pornichet marked by Michelin and it was obvious for me that the restaurant was really worth it. Original cuisine, refined combinations beautifully served on... More
