“This is what I expect from a French Restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 June 2013

Saturday evening and fortunately we had booked. Great food from friendly and helpful staff. The service was good and no hurry through the meal. Enjoyed the entertainment, singing duo on guitars plus some local impromptu talent. It was one of those memorable evenings you talk about. I would have no hesitation visiting again.

For this quality of food and atmosphere it was really good value.

“A little gem”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2013

Found this place for lunch after wandering around Quimper looking at menus and not wanting crepes. As it was lunchtime it was busy and full of locals, always a good sign. Food was lovely, service quick considering how busy they were. Husband happy with his posh burger and my fish was tasty. The staff were nice and friendly. Would be fun to return on one of their live music nights.

“Good food at resonable prices”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 February 2013

We have visited this retuarant several times. The food has always been good, well presented and the prices are reasonable. Fridays and Saturdays they usually have live music - varied styles change each night and so far we have found musicians to be good. These nights are always busy so booking is essential.
When they are busy service can be a bit offhand but reviewers are wrong to assume it's because they are english -- last night (St Valentines) they were packed and everyone got the same treatment - that said we did enjoy our evening.

“A special place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 December 2012

This restaurant is not a classic, the menu that you can choose yourself is quite variable and fun !

Everything is delicious. Very good coffee and desserts.
Care of your calories ...

The service is good, the place pleasant.

“I really liked it but...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 October 2012

So I'm going to start by saying that I personally really enjoyed it, I thought the food was great (though don't ask for the side of potatoes if you get a burger because it's ridiculous) and the prices were ok.
But my friend thought that the service was really lacking and that they did not give us enough time between courses and were in a hurry to see us go. I didn't feel it, but I've just spent a year in America where waiters/tresses come to your table every 5 minutes, so I might have missed it.
Also, they ask for an additional 3 euros whenever there's a concert, and they don't tell you before the end of the meal.
I still liked it and the food really is good.
