“Fresh fish very popular with locals”
Reviewed June 1, 2013

You would expect excellent fresh fish in a port like this and in this restaurant you get it!
Quite small inside and very popular, even with locals, and a little cramped and crowded. But good atmosphere and excellent menu compensates.

“The family party”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

Not ours -but the restaurant owner's family.The restaurant manager was nervous to provide service and we felt that we did not receive the whole of his attention.

the atmosphere was almost rude enough to be similar to an Italin experience - where you can often expect such treatment.

Having said that - the food was excellent and well presented.

For thos seeking a relaxed atmosphere for dinner we think that on this occasion at least -this was not the place.

“Not to be missed”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

Spent a night in the hotel on the way back to Plymouth and the natural thing was to eat at the restaurant. We were not disappointed and would go every time when passing as the food and the service were of a first class. They do know how to cook and serve fish, crabs and mussels. If compared to Cornwall in Britain, the only place you "might" get the same delicious food is at Rick Stain's restaurant in Padstow but at double the price and not so relax and informal atmosphere..... Lovely place, highly recommended.

“Medium”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

Too expensive for what it offers. The set menu sounded good but the main course did not stand up to the same one we had there last year.

“Well worth considering”
Reviewed July 2, 2012 via mobile

Arrived Roscoff at 1900hrs on a Sunady, was recommended this restaurant by the reception at hotel. The menu is particularly cheap but we went for mussels and chips at 10 e or there abouts each. Very nice too! The waitress could not speak English so the 'patron' came order and translated the menu, a bit miserable but very Gallic in the way he did it, so it was quite nice really. There is a tank in the window full of crabs and lobsters which were bobbling about waving at diners. Ideal place for the traveller.
