Set on the Roscoff vieux port, this restaurant is set in an old building, disguised by its exterior profile.
The staff were well turned out, courteous and helpful.
Our kir aperitif arrived accompanied by a a tasty gaspacio, and artichoke mousse.
Menus ranged from €25 upwards (with a cheaper lunch menu served weekdays). We chose the €33, an amuse, followed by gaspacio and tuna tartare, then duck breast and a dessert of almond biscuit, ice cream and mousse. The plain description of the ingredients doesn't do justice to the presentation and the cooking, all the dishes were beautifully presented and tasted wonderfull. We chose a white Cotes du Rhone to accompany the meal €28, from a well found wine list. Well worth a visit, we look forward to our next trip.

We happened across this gem while passing time waiting for our return ferry.
The food was gorgeous- my starter of crab meat with apple and olive oil ice cream was amazing followed by a beautiful monkfish in lobster bisque. The the green tea creme brûlée was just perfect. My husband's meal was equally amazing. even my very unadventurous children raved about their "menu enfant"!
My only regret is that it may be a very long time before we have the chance to return!

The best restaurant in Roscoff which we visited and well worth going out of your way to find. The food and service are excellent and very good value for money.

Booked this on the internet and it was almost full-even out of season. A great 57 euro menu included lobster and fresh foie gras. good service and really inventive cooking- why it only has one knife and fork amazes me- it should also have a Michelin star. Very friendly staff- but unfortunately there was a group of American visitors whose voices rang out across the restaurant which spoilt the meal for a lot of the guests (mainly French)- twice they had to be asked to pipe down. However, it must be emphasised this was NOT the fault of the restaurant, but of the American businessmen who were visiting their French subsidiary and were being taken out for dinner. Well recommended
