Excellent meal: wide selection of moules and local dishes. Small specials board. Very friendly service. Full of locals and large family groups. Good selection of wine by the glass. Well priced. Meal for two with aperitif, pudding and wine by the glass was 47€.

Ok bistro - very good value for money. Moule was average, dessert nothing out of the ordinary and service a bit shambolic but friendly enough. Does the job!

This is a typical french bistrot which is full of locals downstairs at the bar and which has a great atmosphere - in fact just how it always used to be in France before the drink-drive laws! The place is shabby and un-prepossessing but let's hope they don't change it as that adds to the charm - the food is... More

Have visited here before, so was looking forward to it. Sat upstairs, nice view, décor bit dated but it doesn't matter. Starter was a disappointment, boulots, were quite chewy and critty, but the mains was fab, small scallops on their shells with garlic, one of the best I have ever had. Friendly service .

Even by French standards this place is unprepossessing. The main restaurant is upstairs from the bar with a decor that, at best, is in need of work, perhaps the marine equivalent of 'rustic'. But that aside the food was first class with a decent choice and reasonable prices. Friendly staff (as you might expect) and good service. They were happy... More

We had a fantastic time at La Marine over the New Year period. The food is of an exceptional quality and the atmosphere is great, filled with locals and visitors alike. The bar staff and owner are friendly and accommodating - as well as being great for food, it is brilliant for a night out, with a large, covered terrace,... More

Outdoor eating area with sea & boat views or in doors in bistro. Food is well presented and tasted great even at reasonable prices. Staff were very pleasant, spoke both French and English very well. Recommend this venue.

Just happened to be passing by at lunchtime out-of-season, not too hungry but fancied some seafood and not disappointed with the mussels we ordered. Several styles of cooking, from simple Mariniere to the 'full-house' Bretagne with even ham in the rich sauce! Quite a few locals eating there, both inside and out (to smoke!) which is always a good sign... More
