Unassuming restaurant (particularly from the outside) which prides itself on doing interesting dishes within traditional French cuisine. The staff are attentive and the menus and carte are inventive: we had roast turbot (cut across the bone not in fillets thereby keeping the fish moist and flavoursome), grilled scallops and king prawns on a skewer with a Thai cream followed by...

Lunch on the terrrace in the sun. Quiet location with first class service and food. We first came to this restaurant 15years ago and the quality of food and service has never changed.

Came across this restaurant by chance while in the area and wanting lunch. Once inside it was a nice surprise but even better when we were led outside the back and on to the lovely terrace. We chose from the set lunch menu deal and had no wine but the food was very nice and we enjoyed it. Would not... More

The outside is quite deceiving as inside is extremely well presented. Food is superb and best meal of my holiday. Cannot wait to go back. Excellent menu and well stocked bar.

We used this restaurant twice whilst we were in Dinan for a week. First meal was excellent outside on the terrace. Unfortunately for our second visit it was raining so we ate indoors. Staff very friendly with a good knowledge of English. Very good food with a good selection and sensibly priced. Good choice of wines and beers. Would definitely... More

My birthday was made very special coming to this lovely restaurant for lunch. The food and wine were excellent. Madame made us very welcome as her English is very good and ordering food and wine was made simple. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for somewhere to eat in this area.

We were taken to this restaurant by friends that have a house locally for lunch on Friday, we were greeted warmly by the owner and seated in a lounge area to have an aperitif, the girls had a Kir Breton (which was creme de cassis, cider and sparkling wine) each restaurant apparently has their own recipe for this drink.

We had a beautiful meal at La Vieille Braise and a very warm welcome. The restaurant is run by a husband and wife, who are chef and front of house respectively. We chose the middle of the three set price menus and all of the food was outstanding, a la carte is also available. The chef pays great attention to... More

I visited here with my parents and had an exceptional meal. We opted for the €32 menu with a bottle of Sancerre to accompany. The hostess was friendly, accommodating and made us feel welcome. We were brought fabulous amuse bouche and a local liqueur for aperitifs, and I opted for the smoked salmon and duck to start, and my parents... More
