“OK for an inexpensive restaurant but not wonderful”

Ate at Chez Philippe on the basis of previous reviews. It was OK but we did try one of the more expensive menus, and although the cheaper menus are no doubt good value (and perhaps what people are really looking for here) the more expensive menu suffers because the cooking just isn't up to the standard of others charging similar amounts. Our plates of oysters and langoustine were fine - not much required there. Scallops in garlic butter was, however, criminal - the very nice but very garlicky and herby butter sauce murdered the delicate taste of the scallops. A main course of duck was ok, and pollack was also ok but very ordinary compared to what we've eaten elsewhere at similar prices in Camaret. Dessert of far (a Breton pastry) was ordinary, and cheese was a meagre portion of averagely ok cow and goat cheese served (incorrectly) ice cold. Wine (Saumur Champigny) was disappointing.

Was sailing so to get a decent meal ashore was ideal. Had the 15 euro menu, which for 3 courses is excellent value in relation to the other resturants in Camaret. Prawns in their shells, steak with frites and then a very good apple pie.
