wow.... where to start?! we were advised this restaurant from the hotel we were staying at, and even though we were tired we still decided to go.... and thankfully I can add! the restaurant is in the middle of nowhere (by the way be careful when you drive at night as there is a lot of wild life around) and...

Splendid restaurant in the style of Hunting Lodge/Country Inn. Well laid tables with smart, courteous but friendly staff who gave excellent service. A wood fire on which some steaks were cooked. Emphasis on locally produced meat and game as well as cheese. Good sized portions and reasonably priced wines. Well used by locals and not at all "touristy" a place... More

The deco was nice and the views were good too even though we didn't sit by a window. My partner grew up in paimpont and knew this place well and so I was keen to try it. The food was good but I honestly don't think it was quite worth the price. The atmosphere was nice too - it's a... More

Restaurant in between two villages. Charming dining room. Classical menu with a lot of "gibier". The chef understands what he is doing, since each and every dish was excellent. We experienced rind (faux filet), partridge and deer. Great wine list. You may not miss the opportunity to eat here. The only little point for improvement is that the desert was... More

On our way to Brittany, we discovered this wonderful restaurant in the forest of Brocéliande. For two people, we suggest to choose the table number 113. The wonderful scenery is the window and on the plate. In winter, grilling in the fireplace for the daily menu. Very pleasant atmosphere and warm welcome.

Best meal to date on this trip. This is proper French cuisine (not our favourite) but really tasty and well priced. We both had the game casserole which was lovely and our little one had a plate of vegetables, especially prepared by the chef. They speak English and the are really charming. The view to the rear of the building... More

Excellent food served in a very bucolic surrounding , great area for digestive walk after a great lunch , the home made pate is left on the table and you can eat as much as you want . Venison from the forest is also proposed .

We were happy to discover such a traditional restaurant in this very nice place, near the old forge and its pond. A large choice of typical french meals like a "deer sauce grand Veneur", roast lamb or some very fresh fish and seafood. Desserts were delicious too and service was excellent. Further is the winecard rich with quite reasonable prices.... More

Went for lunch twice whilst we were staying in Paimpont. Lovely meals and a great atmosphere. The game stew is a particular recommendation, as is the pâté. The prices are very reasonable and the service first class.
