For our dinner between friends we opted for this excellent restaurant. The service is really impeccable. The short menu list proves the fact that we have been proposed genuine home-made dishes. One of us took the “market selection” fish which proved outstanding. I had a more classical oysters and fish (a la plancha) selection. Located near the Brest train station,... More

I was taken to this restaurant by a French friend who lives very near Brest. The food was excellent and very interesting. The man who served us (owner?) was passionate about the food served at his restaurant. I had the steak tartare, which was excellent, and prepared in a different manner from my experience.

The personal attention of patron Thierry Beauty made our first visit most memorable. He devoted time to explain the menus and guided our selection of wine. No wonder with such leadership the rest of the staff were on the ball too. The food was great, the restaurant busy with a cosy ambiance. And the bill did not shock. We have... More

Our Breton friends took us to this restaurant and it didn't disappoint. The food was outstanding and the service impeccable, especially when we asked for assistance with the choice of wine; the recommendation was perfect. The food was sourced locally, prepared simply but imaginatively, and a definite must for our next visit to Brest.

I liked this place. I was dining alone and the boss took the time to chat to me (in a mixture of my bad French and his rather better English). The food was well above average, with an interesting take on rillettes to start with, followed by a fish fillet that was properly lightly cooked.

This restaurant specialises in local food from the area, with the staff providing helpful explanations if/ as necessary. The 'formule' menu is a very affordable way to try out the seafood, meat and cheese options. The overall atmosphere is relaxed and informal.

The menu is not a big compilation of too much things to be cooked here. So expect an interesting but not so broad choice. It looks like this is on purpose. For each suggestion, the waiter is describing where the product come from, how the producer is raising his porks or cows or ... in a traditional and quality focused... More

We recently had dinner in this restaurant, which was located conveniently around the corner from our hotel. Overall we were very satisfied. The menu is somewhat limited. We started with oysters, which were very good (although expensive for an informal restaurant such as this). As main dishes, we both chose the mixed fish à la plancha, which was especially good...
