The restaurant was very busy when we went in for lunch but we were served promptly and efficiently. We ordered tartare de boeuf and brochette St Jacques. Both dishes were excellent so all in all we had a very enjoyable visit.

We were looking for somewhere to eat where we could have a few starters as opposed to a full meal.. came across restaurant en route back to out hotel .. The restaurant advertises itself as a pizzeria but it is more than that ..we did not have a full meal just a variety of staters and a carafe of wine... More

Service beyond terrible. If you have 6 hours for lunch and accept being treated like dirt give it a go. Oh and if you like the smell of urinals as your eating your lunch u will love it.

After dining at this restaurant on several occasions over the last 8 years that we have owned our holiday house in dinan - before we had our daughter, we have always found the service not to be great and there to be an underlying smell from the toilet through out the restaurant. However tonight with friends we arrived at the... More

We actually visited this restaurant only because nothing else was open!! Don't know why as it was very busy for a Wednesday night in October. We thought it was mainly a pizza restaurant but found a fantastic menu inside. Their signature dish is actually fish and chips! My husband had the fish which was breaded and soo fresh and i... More

We knew what to expect from the other reviews regarding service and were not disappointed. The waitress it has to be said was rushing around so allowances made but even so there was no engagement at any point. We both ordered pizza with a side salad - pizzas were tasty but the salad only arrived 2/3rds of the way through... More

The food is OK, but the service non existent. Three of had to endure nearly two hours from sitting down to leaving, and then I had to leave my dessert because of the time. The starter forgotten for one of us, then repeated requests between courses to hurry up even though they were hardly rushed off their feet, my wife... More

Been to this restaurant a few times and the food is very good, with the formule being particularly good value. Unfortunately this is let down by the slowness of the service. We live in France and were in Dinan on business and can't really afford 2 1/2 hours for lunch with a wait of over an hour between entree and... More

It's a long walk down the cobbled road from the centre of Dinan, down to the port and to be sure, there are plenty of eating places, restaurants and brasseries on the way, but I always save my appetite for La Lumachelle right at the bottom of the hill. It boasts both French and Italian cuisine and their pizzas, cooked... More

We look at a number of restaurants in the port de Dinan but this place had people waiting for a table. No other establishment around had this buzz about it. The food was excellent, the service good and attentive and the prices reasonable. A definite YES.
