10 minute walk around the harbour from main group of restaurants. Outside seating rather drab but inside very attractive and comfortable. A little disappointed that as a couple we were not allowed to sit at window tables which were set up for 4 people. Food was varied and well presented.

Superb location with wonderful view of the boats in the port, and view of the rest of Paimpol.

Fantastic food and good friendly service. My husband... More

terrible experience. after a good appetizer, the main dish was overcooked and clearly not fresh fish. forget about the service, it takes hours for anything (and we were there quite late, only a few tables were left). the odd one out of paimpol, a wonderful city we enjoyed so much with wonderful restaurants and nice people.
