I attended this restaurant with my parents and French family friends. We experienced very poor service. From the moment we walked in, the lady who greeted and sat us down was unwelcoming and hasty. The older man who took our orders and served us throughout the meal was extremely rude the entire time. I did not feel welcome at all,... More

I visited the beautiful city of Granville last week when traveling in Normandy with my husband. We had lunch at Le Phare and sat on the top floor with a lovely view of the harbour and the rising tide. We had great food and wine to accompany the scenery. I had a memorable seafood platter with fresh and delicious seafood... More

We enjoyed our meal (4 adults total, 2 US and 2 French), and the service was satisfactory. Overall, we found the experience to be 3 stars, frankly we enjoyed Le Surcouf nearby to be a better meal. We had 4 plates of the day and 2 servings of choucroute, all were good.

We were a party of 2 adults and an 11year old. After reading the very positive reviews on this site I booked a table using "The Fork" option to find a restaurant with availability. The menu was fine, food was OK, service was polite, all pretty much as you'd expect, except I was expecting so much more after reading how... More

Cancale has seafood nurseries absolutely remarkable. The oysters here are probably the best one in France. The restaurant has an excellent service, very friendly and very professionals employees . Wide variety of seafood, with particular emphasis on oysters and mussels. Value suitable price. I recommend.

We had a lovely lunch here this week (23 June 15). The staff were brilliant and the food fantastic. We had the €16 euro set menu, the oysters for a starter we're great and I was assured the pate was also excellent. If you want a lovely view of the bay and cancale port you must try this place. We...

We visited Cancale specifically to eat seafood at what we know is a great seafood resort. You are spoilt for choice, there are many restaurants to choose from, we chose Le Phare and were not disappointed. Excellent service, a good view from our table, and the food was excellent. If you find yourself in Cancale and can't choose where to... More

This place looks quite promising from the outside. Modern decoration with buzzing atmosphere. Seafood platter first arrived looking impressive until we found one bad oyster (shell broken - it has been dead a hundred years). When we told a waiting staff, he didn't apologise straightaway but he came back with the new oyster swiftly. The kids loved their food which... More

We had a nice table at the front of the restaurant, but were also well shielded from the blazing sunshine. The view across the bay was stunning. The seafood, as one would expect, was excellent and the service was friendly and welcoming. There was a good choice for all tastes and the desserts were delicious too.
