We went to the Afghan Cafe last evening and was very happy with our choice. The food was just yummy and we really loved the aubergine entree. Will recommend the Afghan Cafe for anyone who is looking for something different in Vannes!

A tiny restaurant with really friendly and informative staff. The food was excellent with subtle flavours. Quite different from other cuisines

Do not be put off by its appearance. Try the aubergine starter - loved it. Very light, very tasty. My partner and I had a great meal. The staff were very kind. I washed it down with the ginger & saffron tea. Priced perfectly. Happily would have paid more.

Really good food, the aubergine starter was particularly nice. Friendly guys running it too. There is a fun picture on the wall and I need to write 100 letters.

Ate here after a long trip to Vannes with my husband and toddler. Couldn't fault the food, it was delicious. The staff was lovely and very accommodating however service was painfully slow. We waited about 40 minutes for our starters and another half an hour for our main courses. If you are not pushed for time then this place is... More

We've not eaten Afghan food before so thought it would be a good experience. We were warmly welcomed, ordered our food, the starters were very quickly bought to our table - bit bland. The main course was better, quite tasty. The restaurant is worth a try - there definitely seemed to be local regulars eating there. Reasonably priced wine.

We were intrigued when we saw this cafe in a 15 year old guide book so it has been there for some time! The cafe is small and a bit scruffy but don't let this put you off, the toilets are clean and the decor seems authentic. The service was excellent and the waiter was very proud of the food,... More

Six of us dined here, had four different meals. All were very tasty, with aromatic spices. All had deserts and they too were good. Seemed reasonably priced about 28 euros a head for two courses and wine. It is a very small restaurant and gets crowded later in the evening, so may be an idea to book in advance.

We found this restaurant thanks to prior reviews on Trip Advisor. As we walked in the door a local French man came in behind us and told us that we had chosen a very good restaurant. It's always nice to get a local endorsement. The Afghan Cafe lives up to its prior reviews. It is a small but comfortable space.... More
