This lovely restaurant is located across from the old port. We had a reservation for 4 people on a Sunday evening. We were given a nice corner table. We all had the 30 euro prix fixe menu. My husband and friend had the shrimp and whelks for starters. My husband won't eat escargot so he wouldn't even try the whelks (sea snails, larger than escargot). They were served cold. I love escargot but did not care for the whelks at all. They were quite rubbery. The shrimp were very good, but he had to peel them, which was tedious for one so impatient as he is.

Two of us had the curried fish soup which was good, but not memorable. It was followed by the cod in a creamy citrus sauce. My husband had the pork tenderloin with pureed mint-flavored peas. He said it was very good. For dessert we had the raspberry charlotte and the poached pear in wine sauce. Service was very good.

We booked this restaurant as part of our Brittany ferries gourmet trip and indeed it was a gourmet lunch to savour. Friendly welcoming reception, good views of the marina/harbour/place from our table and warm atmosphere in the room. Our 5 course meals were delicious in all aspects, evenly spaced in time and great value for the quality of dish. The staff were friendly and helpful and the pear tartin is definitley worth ordering at the start of your visit as it is freshly made from scratch. Bon appetit.

This is a very good quality restaurant in every respect: location overlooking the vieux port; set menus offering good value as well as a la carte menu; thoughtful and interesting cuisine; smart decor; excellent food and service. Book ahead to reserve a table with a view.

This is a nice place with relax atmosphere and a nice view on the port.
there is some interesting creativity with the meal (mash potatoes with lime: very tasty)
Price are reasonnable for the quality of the food
Unfortunately the seafood plate was desapointing surprising for a restaurant with such a name (oyster sheller).
Ask for a table close to the window with view on the port
Be careful stop serving at 9pm
