We are staying in the La Mere Champlain hotel. The restaurant covers the entire ground floor. Behind the elevator lobby and before the kitchen are two large saltwater tanks, one with crabs; the other, very large lobsters. We are hungry already. Dinner is fully booked,...More

We hadn't planned to go to Cancale but it was too hot inland so we headed for the coast. At the tourist office we picked up a map, which showed that we could walk a section of the coastal path and still get back to...More

Had a wonderful meal here for my husband's birthday. Four of us had lunch and as I'm vegetarian they did a special meal for me. Nothing was too much trouble and the food was fantastic. Highly recommended !

Don't go there for special occasions, the place is under staffed and the service is awful. Waiters are unfriendly and can make you wait 25 mins before you get your food
