We have enjoyed visiting Ar Vag several times a year for the past 4 years. We have always found the service and food adequate and the decor exceptional.
This year will be our last visit. My 8 yr old daughter asked for a ham and mushroom crepe, which wasn't on the menu. The owner told her she'd have to have ham and egg or mushrooms and onions. Can't abide such inflexibility, hundreds of other local creperies to use in future.

Our 5th visit and always on our schedule when we visit Brittany. The food and service are good with large portions but the show stealer is the decor, which is changed 4 times per year to reflect the season.
Our 1st visit was November 2015 and it was like dining in Santa's Grotto, spectacular.

The restaurant is bedecked in an amazing array of marine themed ornaments, as well as Breton dolls. All against a backdrop of blue lighting and sparkling lights. Feels as if one is on the inside of an aquarium. Had 2 different types of mussels - with cream and mariniere. Healthy portion of these and the chips (one would suffice for lighter eaters). Nice enough but a rather strong background taste?! Waiter seemed a little preoccupied and one had the feeling the desire was diners should eat up and leave ASAP.

I've come to Guilvinec at least once a year for past 30years ; for past couple of years, I had made of this place one of my favorites, for good crepes at decent price, even though I already had noticed that "Manu", the main waiter, was acting quite weird, being overwhelmed as soon as there is more than 5 people in the restaurant.

Today was the last time I tried to go with friends, a party of 8 including 4 kids. Only one table with 6-8 people was in. The waiter barely acknowledged our presence, being too busy with the " crowd". We asked for a table, but it wasn't possible. We asked if it was possible for the day after, and again it wasn't. We really annoyed him by asking if it was possible the day after next, and all we got was a very loud sigh of exasperation.
In the meantime, our kids were a bit noisy which is something to be expected initially when your place is investing so much in a weird decoration, and then the cook came to ask what all that noise was about..
By that time we were done, and got the hint that we were not welcome here, neither now nor later.

I would recommend they finally hire an extra waiter so that Manu can deal with the anxiety generated by having to attend more than one table, with kids.

There is nothing to fault, the decor is unique and a fantastic suprise for anyone with children, the food is excellent and the prices are family friendly. We will definitely be going again.
