Got into town late on a Monday with a group of five other friends and just wandered in....and did we ever luck out. We had a brilliant meal and all under a pre-fix menu. We started with the house aperitif of champagne and Armagnac and then a light red that went with everyones meal. I had the filet of pork... More

Difficult to book a table for 8 people last minute on a Saturday night. Chez la Mère Pourcel delivered on all levels. Organised a table for us, good service, very good food and wines. Nice ambiance too. Recommended.

Not many Dinan restaurants open on a Sunday evening in March, but this one does and was not all that busy (but nor was Dinan!). The pleasant atmosphere is enhanced by the surroundings, service was friendly and efficient and the food was the best we had during a short trip to France.

We had a wonderful meal here in September. Our hotel recommended it, but warned that we needed reservations. Luckily, we were able to snag a table for two by showing up early. We both had the seafood casserole and it was by far the best seafood we had in France (on a three week tour with lots of seafood!) It... More

First it's important to mention that for this qualification we only take restaurants into account that serve complete dinner in a decent setting in a price category of 80 to 100 euro for 2, wine included. This summer we visited this restaurant for the 3rd time. “Chez la mère Pourcel” is so unique that each time that we come there... More

It's a large restaurant but with only 4 tables occupied on a Sunday night it lacked atmosphere. The food was good, we had the 30 euro menu and an extra plate of cheese. My wife had the scallop and prawn skewer and I had pork. Good but not as good as Le Canterbery last night

The food was well-prepared. Service was good. I really enjoyed the ambiance here. This is a good choice of restaurant in Dinan if members of your party have different appetites but you still want a nice restaurant. Salads are available as a main dish as well as chicken, meats and seafood. I had a Salade Briquette while my companions had... More

Once again back for a few days break in Dinan, reserving a table is advisable. We both took sometime in choosing but had the fish soup and the duck, followed by the scallops & papillote of Cod superb. The desert menu has a nice selection but we both had the strawberry creme dish a little similar to a panacotta nice.... More

Had a superb set dinner of poached cod with vegetables in a parchment. The set up of the restaurant in an old medieval building with timber beams and high ceilings, looking out into a pedestrian square with the character buildings was priceless. Meal was very reasonably priced. Young wait staff were well trained, friendly and professional. Chocolate cake and home-made... More
