Difficult to make a choice in Cancale since the offer is really huge. The Surcouf provided us a very nice service. Food was excellent, my wife wanted to try the "fish choucroute" and she was delighted. Price is somewhat on the higher side and the insistance to have a "pousse café" was not, for me, the best idea they had.

We visited this restaurant for Dinner following a recommendation from Tyrel Guren hotel some 10 minutes away. This recommendation was excellent. There are many restaurants to choose from here, so a recommendation is worth something. They were right, we have just finished some three weeks in France, from the Mediterranean to Brittany, and my wife stated that this was the... More

So much choice in Cancale, but sure we made the right decision for celebrating our anniversary lunch. Friendly service and beautifully presented food. Needless to say, the oysters were great but for me the star was an exquitely cooked piece of cod. Highly recommended
