“Absolutely Outstanding Meal”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

Visited for Dinner with my husband and in-laws after reading reviews on Tripadvisor. We looked at the menu on the board outside before entering the restaurant. There were lots of locals in the restaurant - so we thought we'd be in for a pleasant meal. The waitress took our order, but we were confused that we weren't given a Wine Menu, so we asked for one when the waitress returned. She explained that Nicholas would come over once we had seleced our meals and would suggest wine to go with our meal. When he came over, he asked what sort of wine we liked and then he went and got a bottle, which was excellent, from his shop. We didn't know how much this bottle would be, but when we got the bill, we were shocked that such lovely wine was very reasonably priced. Unfortunately, the shop closed at 7.30 p.m. so we couldn't buy more bottles to take with us. The food was well presented and of an exceptionally high standard. Can't believe that for two courses it was only 20 Euros. This really should be No. 1 on Tripadvisor in Guingamp. Make sure you visit, you won't be disappointed.

“Modern trendy restaurant with twist to classic French dishes”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Located in a nicely modernised old building, tucked away in a back alley, Le bon Sens serves it dishes lovely. Either in the patio garden or inside. Their cuisine is French but new style, so stylished it is, it has a cosmopolitan feel to it. Always fresh ingredients in lovely combinations, you really feel it is made with lots of love. Loved their turbot, mmmmm.
The surprising thing about the restaurant, the unbelievable thing almost, is the quality you get for a 'low' price. The menu only costs 25 euro, worth every single penny. Amazing.
So go there. Great food in an amazing place.

“Great bistro in a beautiful building”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

Love this little restaurant. Great bistro style set menu with wine by the glass or bottle. Brilliant idea to be able to drink a glass or two or something and then take a dozen bottles home with you from the attached wine shop. The owner Nicolas is a top fella and deserves to do well. Plus he looks like one of the 3 musketeers - very French!

“Excellent food”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

This is my second time in this restaurant and i wouild like to say that each time i've been there, I've been impressed by the lunch menu. The food was delicious served with a good wine. Nicolas has a very good range of wine and an excellent knowledge! All that fairly priced. We will definitely coming back.
