My wife and I visited for lunch on a cold May day without a reservation, and got the last indoor table. I started with ravioli filled with andouille de Vire, a local sausage. It was very genuine and quite revolting, and my own fault for ordering it. We have a second home in France and should know better than to... More

A Saturday evening meal in a busy restaurant, but with first rate service. The food was delicious. Menu is, obviously, primarily seafood, but a reasonable choice for carnivores. Recommended

Too many tables,not enough space to pull a chair out. Food good, wine good, service good. Staff efficient and professional. Not too much to say , I have had better meals in Granville.

Have been eating here for decades, even before it moved from the old town to the harbourside. It was always good and has steadily got better. It is now clearly the best restaurant in and around Granville and we have eaten at them all over the past 35 years. The only downside is that if you don't like seafood your... More

Based on reviews and a love of sea food, we booked a week in advance. Arrived to be given a table next to the entrance, with a chair with one leg on a ramp and no more than a metre from a very nice couple who I now know a lot more about than I wanted to know. Not a... More

A rainy Monday, went in without a booking, though that was okay as we were quite early, seafood really good, ambience so-so, staff very pleasant and professional, and the restaurant thoroughly deserved it's Michelin 2015 Red Guide listing.

Since we didn't have a reservation, we were asked to sit on the terrace which was really my preference. We saw many stunning seafood towers being served to customers who had extreme patience getting every last morsel of meat in each claw and leg. I ordered a filet of dorade, served with a sauce that was a bit watery. My... More

Excellent seafood restaurant, helpful staff who were patient with our two children and terrible French. The staff were less smug than a nearby place that I won't mention, but the food was better here. Bouches amused, everything wonderful. Lovely evening all round.
