Lunchtime slot and tried the set menu at c. 19 Euros. Dessert of Kouign Annan tarte with coffee ice cream was the best plate; the Salade Norvegian and the veal was average. Friendly welcome, pleasant staff and super clean toilets. Décor completely OTT!

This was one of the few restaurants we found in Douarnenez open in November (both lunchtime and evening). The food was really good, and the service was pleasant. It is located in the town centre, and the Spanish-themed décor is amazing!

We found this restaurant on a wet day walking around the town and I'm glad we did. Our family of four had the three course plat du jour which was all delicious and perfectly presented. The prices were very reasonable and the service very friendly....More

Excellent service, with a smile. Exceptional food. Although restaurant appeared to be closing we were not turned away and were allowed to eat at our leisure. Brilliant would visit again if in vicinity.
