We visited as a family of four, we were staying in the yourte campsite just next door (beautiful!) We have 2 small children, 4 and 2, so eating out is never particularly easy but it was our last night in France before catching the ferry the next day. I thought that it seemed like a nice quirky place and the... More

Loved this restaurant. A small but varied menu in a quirky setting. We found the staff helpful and the food delicious. Tried to get in once when passing but no tables available so booked for our last holiday meal and so glad we did. Great views, ambiance and, of course, food.

This is a fantastic must-visit spot. We were staying nearby in Carentec & had spotted the bicycles with onions outside as a photo-opportunity. Didn't realise it was a restaurant till we pulled in to take pictures. It's a slow food restaurant and farm-shop. Features lots of local producers. We'd a delicious meal there, the menu is limited but anything we... More

Abrupt member of staff in fake "traditional" costume told us come back in 2 1/2 hours, we gave that option a miss. disappointing as all the local literature describes it as a welcoming restaurant where to enjoy the local produce seemed more like catch the tourists not for us sorry.

We (2 adults and 2 children) were on our way home from a holiday and decided to stop here as it was close to the ferry in Roscoff. It was about 1840 and lucky for us the restaurant opened at 1900. From what I could see, all the meals were cooked freshly with ingredients sourced from the locality. They were... More

'Onion Johnnies' were once a familiar sight on the streets of the UK ... an old bicycle overloaded with onions, ridden by a Frenchman wearing a black beret and a striped shirt. A few still work the British streets ... amongst them are the people who run this restaurant. In the winter they sell onions, in the summer they run... More

Smashing restaurant and deli. English speaking owners who go out of their way to source local, non commercialized produce. \we had 2 lovely meals there. The first night I had an artichoke filled with scallops, monk fish and veggies with a beautiful dressing, my partner had the brochette. Both lovely. Then the next night, we went back for live music... More
