Don't be put off by the appearance, up an alleyway and seating for about 20max. The food and the service was very good. The staff work very hard, it is run by 2 brothers and a kitchen assistant. We have eaten here on 3 occasions over the years each time it has jhad different owners but always worth a visit.

We visited dinan for three nights, managed to fit in the 'tripadvisior' 123 for dinan! Great little restaurant, good choice on menu, enjoyable three courses especially the deserts. very reasonably priced. The waiter was extremely attentive, courteous and helpful with translating the menu. The restaurant was full by 8-30 so may be advisable to book a table to guarantee this venue.

Hmmmm. We were quite excited about visiting La Courtine having read the Trip Advisor reviews.
It sits up a quiet cobbled alley and is pretty from the outside. Inside is themed in black and red with a small bar at the entrance. The restaurant was empty when we arrived, but filled quickly - and the service was attentive and friendly. The food though, whilst nicely cooked, didn't excite. We tried to work out afterwards why, but simply came up with the feeling that it was ok to good, rather than great. Scallops and chorizo were well enough cooked with a nicely dressed salad. Filet mignon ok but slightly tasteless. Duck similar - and a bit fatty. My pudding (a chocolate semi-cooked job with good caramel ice cream) was the best of the meal, my husband's pear was pretty, but, again, didn't hit the heights. The wine list was young and quite small, so again not great (but sort of get used to this in Brittany). So, while it's great to see Dinan adding to its range of good restaurants, we were surprised at its number 1 rating from Trip Advisor and it wasn't the best meal we had in Dinan. Maybe it was just that menu, and we should try again?

I visited La Courtine with my wife and two friends last week. The 22Euro menu offers three courses of excellent food and with a reasonably wide choice (plenty of fishy and meaty dishes as well as several inspiring desserts). The atmosphere in the small restaurant was warm and friendly and the waiter was attentive and extremely friendly. Genuinely this is the best three course meal I have ever had at a fraction of the cost of any UK restaurant I have eaten in.

We are frequent visitors to Dinan and La Courtine is a must on every trip. The food is based on what is best in the market that week, hence the incredibly reasonable price for exquisitively prepared and presented menus. Just afraid that after this review I won't be able to get a table!
