We loved having dinner at this place at a Sunday night. It opens at 19.00, and we were there at that time. We did not have a reservation, and should not have been later because 15/20 minutes later the restaurant was completely full. The waiter...More

Very busy, have to book well in advance. Not many seats and very cosy. The host is very attentive and works hard to make everyone feel at home and relaxed. The food is excellent.

We had a very nice dinner at this restaurant on a Friday evening. The location overlooks the river and has pleasant, rustic décor in keeping with the old historic town of Dinan. I had chicken prepared using a traditional Normandy style with a delicious sauce...More

Recommended to us by the owners of the apartment we rented, this proved to be a very nice choice. As is our wont, we arrived early ( c. 6.45pm) which was just as well because within 30 minutes the place was full. As it was...More
