Although the restaurant was not busy (only us and one other couple) there was a very good atmosphere, largely because the owner/waiter was so entertaining and friendly and because the music was great. The owner speaks very little English but we communicated well with our limited French and he provided a menu in English, which helped a lot! He brought a nice appetizer of bruschettas to nibble while we decided. In the end we shared a goat's cheese parcel with cured ham and salad (about 8 euros) then I had the fish of the day (21 euros) whilst my husband enjoyed his first taste of kangaroo in a beef and kangaroo skewers dish (18euros). A shared apple crumble dessert cost 6.5 euros. All the food was superbly cooked and presented with delicious accompaniments. With wine and coffee the bill came to about 90 euros - not the cheapest but a fair price for the quality of meal and a very enjoyable evening.

Had the fixed price 38 euro pp menu in the evening.

Nice small ish restaurant close to the town centre/Ville Close.

Fish soup starter was excellent - watch out for a few very small bones at the bottom of the bowl though.
For mains we had Barbue (Brill) which was cooked perfectly and served with a nice selection of veg/crushed potato and very nicely presented.
Crème Brûlée was great too.
Wine - we had a nice Saumur Chauvigny at about 22 euros.

Patron was attentive and very helpful ....and with a friendly smile/disposition.
We will go back on our next visit to Concarneau.

This is one of the best restaurants in Concarneau, the man who runs it has impeccable taste in food and music. We have a house there and his restaurant is on our list every visit, not on the main thoroughfare but well worth seeking out up a small side street. Brilliant decor. A breath of fresh air.

We wandered for a while through Concarneau. Then, a board at the base of the street lured us up to the restaurant.

On reading the menu and seeing the interior we decided rashly to commit.

An excellent idea overall. The head/only waiter was most friendly and accommodating. Allowed us to choose our table, brought us some pate and bread while we chose our meal and never left us feeling just a few among the melangee.

The menu, although not expansive, gave a delicious choice of starter, main and dessert.
On tasting Gambas in whiskey, followed by tuna and chocolate fondant I had not even one tiny complaint. Much more, I could only compliment the chef completly.

Seek out this restaurant and enjoy!

This was a great experience. All of the menu items were fresh that day. Rather than offering a multitude of entrees and plats, the choices were limited to the freshest available. Prices were reasonable and the food tasted great. Well worth the trip.
