The menu is a bit limited but the whole point of this establishment is to offer basic food but with excellent quality ingredients. Most dishes come with baked potatoes... but not any old potato. Oh no, these are the best local potatoes you can find,...More

We went here last night, by chance. We liked the cozy atmosphere and the meals were a very nice surprise. Firstly we asked for the fish soup, dense and flavorful. We also had the pularde (clams) and the faux-fillet. All excellent, the same as the...More

The restaurant is a bit out of the centre of Paimpol but worth finding. It is small and the choice is limited which means that the ingredients are always fresh. The managers are very friendly and will make a small chat with you. During our...More

Le Balthazar is a quirky little wine bar in the old town of Paimpol which serves food. There is a good selection of wines, and some nice platters. The hot food is rustic and excellent value for money, all locally sourced. We had a huge...More

With a very charming attitude, la madame de maison explained the short, yet exquisite menu of the day in detail and recommended the perfect wine matches to go with our choices. Each one of our main courses and deserts were delicious, and the wines... Wow!...More

Le Balthazar is a restaurant with a warm and friendly atmosphere in the middle of old stones. The kitchen is made in front of you on the embers in a majestic fireplace. It feels like home, around a good table with homemade cuisine made from fresh, local, seasonal and organic products. The selection of French wine and Breton beers (including a range of organic wine and beer) can also be enjoyed at the counter, accompanied by a good plate of cold meats or cheeses!
