We were lucky to find this restaurant on a busy Saturday night. Fish, steak, seafood and pasta were all enjoyed with great value wine and attentive service. Get there early or book to avoid disappointment!

We had dinner in this restaurant 4 people (two adults and two grown up kids). It was a positive surprised, actually it was the best restaurant we tried out while we were in Vanned for few days. Generous portions, good and fast service, ..., and the possibility to have a late dinner. We arrived at 09.15 but we saw how... More

We visit Vannes 2or 3 times a year and never eat anywhere else. Chantel the owner is a lovely lady who always makes us feel welcome. The food is excellent and Chantel is always happy to guide you through the menu giving you advice on things that cater for the local taste and may not be to everyone's liking. The... More

Very hospitable and friendly place with interesting food. I had pig's trotters [lovely] and pig's ear [challenging!] for starters then a more conventional main course. The food was very reasonably priced and we were given a free shot of something exotic with our coffee. Very easy place to go if your French isnt up to much. I will definitely return

Impromptu visit - & we were so delighted. An authentic French restaurant as one would expect and most friendly attentive efficient service. Food was superb - We had one of the Menu du Jour [On the Board] and another from the fixed menu options. The food was absolutely first class and the 'wine of the month' at €19.50 was an... More

Dined here solo on a Saturday night in April. Couldn’t find le K 19 which is where I had intended to eat so chose this one based on the buzzy local atmosphere and the set menu advertised at €19 for 3 courses. Warm welcome and good table and service, I always think that as a solo diner you know what... More

My wife and I visited this restaurant in March 2016. We were originally drawn there because we were searching for somewhere to have dinner and this place had a good number of clients already there which we considered to be a good sign. The proprietor was most welcoming, spoke good English and pointed out that the menu had English translations.... More

We were a party of nine. They were very cooperative, if a bit slow. Food was tasty. Bread was delicious.

This restaurant offers a very French atmosphere with good typical food. The service was friendly and not rushed. The waitress was able to provide good direction on wine and food. My children enjoyed veal stew, I very much enjoyed the duck in two sauces and my mother the lamb shank.

Food was poorly cooked, sauces were over seasoned and lacked subtlety and the manager was arrogant and seemed to be obsessed with the supremacy of all things French. We love France too but there is no need to declare items on the menu as "probably only for French people". Bottle of white wine was served warm - followed by the... More
