Though the food is tasty and nicely presented it's far to overpriced for the portions served. The place is understaffed and the waiting times for a plate to be served are tiring long. The staff is young and inexperienced to a level, like in my case, which can harm ones health. I am a celiac and I double checked if... More

Our visit to this restaurant was a pleasant experience. Service was excellent, staff friendly and efficient. Our starter was okay albeit small. The gambas were in small pieces the trout small again but all perfectly formed and tasty. The foie gras was a good size portion. Mains of steak just perfect with juicy steaks cooked exactly how ordered pleasing all... More

Had lunch here with my husband and a friend. One of many attractive restaurants on the quay with outside seating overlooking the old harbour mostly now used as a marina. Great atmosphere, friendly staff. My husband and friend had the fruit de mer and said it was one of the best they'd had. That was 58 euros for 2 persons.... More

The food was amazing, from the huitres to the scallops and abalone. Very affordable for the excellent quality and presentation. A music festival was underway all along the port which was a bonus!

Good harbour side restaurant and very popular. Well presented and tasty food. Range of menu options but no specials so the menu remains the same each week.

We stayed four nights in Paimpol, ate here twice and were impressed on both occasions. The service is attentive, helpful and on occasion humorous - you can try your French but their English is excellent. On the first occasion we went for one of the set menus - oysters, haddock which was beautifully served and delicious, dessert and a bottle... More

We went here for dinner and were delighted by the food and the service. The menu was also available in English, which was helpful as my rusty french would not have recognised all of the choices. The service was really good and friendly, our food was excellent, I really to recommend that you try the gallette with creamed leeks and... More

We'd done too much walking and found the more upmarket restaurants had finished serving so we were glad to discover this 'open all hours' bistro. Galette complet came with ham, cheese, mushrooms and fried egg and small salad (@7euros) and one bowl of frites extra between us was really tasty. We added a pichet of cider (also 7 euros) and...
