This was our third visit, and we continue to be impressed by their food, ambiance, and service. This time we ate in the evening, and learned after making reservations for 7:30 that we could have avoided a trip down to the parking ticket machine had we made them for 8pm instead, since that's the end of Cancale's port area payant...

We both chose the €52 menus, with different choices in each course so we could taste the maximum number of dishes. A faultless meal, everything was delicious, innovative and perfectly cooked. Service was impeccable and friendly. We would not hesitate to eat there again.

We phoned to reserve a Sunday lunch in July, to fit in with an 1200km Journey from the South of France to Cherbourg. The Chef/Owner took my reservation by phone (as you cannot email!); I offered him a Credit Card and my mobile phone number, which he refused, saying the phone booking was good enough.This was 6 weeks in advance....

The place is just by the beach at the end of the jetty. The setting is modern and designed with taste. From almost everywhere in the restaurant you will have a view on the bay of the Mont St Michel. The service if efficient, kind and professional. The owner will surely come by a few times to check that everything... More

Cancale is very touristic, which means that there are dozen of "mainstream" restaurants. Coté Mer is happily the exception: it's at the very beginning of the seaside road, well before the cramped and chaotic area begins, and it offers both a classy dining room with excellent view and good food for who wants more than the usual touristic menu. And... More

Tripadvisor, thank you. This is an excellent restaurant. We went here when we stayed for a few nights at Mont Saint Michel. In that place, we were unable to find any restaurant that was not a tourist trap. The trip to Cancale - a beautiful place to visit - takes about 45 minutes by car and it was worthwhile. Couples...

Superb fruit de mer and food in general, excellent wine and service, great view on the seaside. Impressive price, much lower than expected. I went there with the family, including two under 5s. We really wanted to eat the fruit de mer and thus we had to order them 48h in advance. Everything was perfect, including the friendly service despite... More
