Booked with Trip Advisor. The table was ready. A good looking girl took us to the table...One of the best view in Brittany, straight on the wonderful bay of Douarnenez, overlooking the beach. You can hear the waves crashing. Nice sardines: the signature dish of Douarnenez. Average gratin of St Jacques with too much potatoes. Very nice desert. Very affordable... More

The location cannot be faulted, overlooking the sea. The food is also good and fresh with the menu on a blackboard to allow for the best items available every day. Service, however, was lacklustre at best with lots of waiting for a table even though we could see one was free and lots of Gallic shrugging. Sort this out and... More

We were lucky enough to score an early walk in table. The location and outlook are good. We both went for the Grand Crom and it is certainly a celebration of well cooked potato. The seafood that goes with is treated with less reverence meaning that the food overall was ok. Would have liked to have given them a "good"... More

This was a real surprise. Many places were shot but this restaurant was so attractive looking out over the beach' We had and enjoyed the Grand Crom Smoked salmon, prawns scallops clams and jacket potatoes topped with mushrooms Superb! All backed by a wonderful view. To the young waitress being taught English-keep up the good work!

This little restaurant is in the most beautiful position overlooking the bay in Douarnenez. Two of us had lunch there today. The Coquilles St Jacques starter was good but distinctly overcooked and one portion was burnt. The main course, a mixed seafood salad with stuffed jacket potatoes, was fine but according to the menu should have had some crab in... More

We had eaten here before, when under different different owners, so were curious how it would be now. Sadly, we were quite disppointed. On Tripadvisor they offer a 10% discount when you make a reservation. TNeedless to say, we didn't get any discount at all, nobody 'knew' anything about this (?). the location is breath taking, the views are wonderfil,... More

We turned up on a busy Friday evening and thankfully they managed to squeeze us in. You can't really go wrong with a baked Camembert, which was delicious but the main courses and desserts were stunning - gratin de st Jacques, a seafood platter with potato skins, Gwen ha du and tarte tatin. A lovely little place, great food, great... More

We visited this place in July in heavy rain.. it was a great little find. I had the potatoes with langoustine, scallops and crab and it was absolutely delicious washed down with a couple of glasses of the house rose. I would recommend.
