with views across the bay and the sun shining on the sea this place felt like summer in the winter. The oysters! the beautifully prepared and presented food, the decor. It felt that bit special and was perfect for my birthday lunch.
The service was...excellent - attentive but not intrusive and the food was just beautiful.
The set menu lunch as also more than reasonable for such good food and amazing setting. three courses including oysters, wine and nibbles as just over €50 for two. Stunning. Go Here!More
I was desperate to find a place to have a Christmas Day meal of seafood and thought perhaps Cancale might have something open. I found La Mere Champlain open and super busy, but they were kind enough to find me a table just for one...person. I was a bit in the middle of things and I did have a companion of sorts, the french bull dog that eyed everything I ate through the whole meal. I started with a shell fish platter that was excellent! I ordered the "Bar Filet" not knowing it was fish ( I was not familiar with the term)..Sadly, I could not eat it as it was too fishy for me. I am particular with fish so I blame myself only. I am sure anyone else would have loved it ( including my short friend)...the dessert was very good. The service was excellent and the atmosphere was warm and inviting. I would go back! I was so happy they were open...Thank you Mere Champlain.More
This might not be the best spot on the strip full of restaurants overlooking the Cancale waterfront, but the food is solid and service is good. Not sure why, but the oysters I had (from the beds that you can see from the windows of...this restaurant) were the only ones I ate in Brittany that weren't that great. I'm sure it was an anomaly. Everything else at the restaurant was tasty--including some delicious and reasonably priced wines.More
This restaurant is worthwhile visiting. Honest and good cuisine. Prices are good.
Mussels were extremely fresh and wonderfully tasty. My daughter had cod. Wonderful dish.
The view you enjoy at the window is wonderful. In one sentence, good prices, good cuisine, as a tourist we...were treated like royalty.More
A wonderful typical "Bord de mer" i.e seaside restaurant...Great food, great service and a beautiful view; The menu was very varied and the wine list had something for everyone. A recommendation from our waiter for a red wine turned out excellent and less expensive than...the previous bottle of red we started our diner with. It was a very busy night but we were not rushed out and thoroughly enjoyed our nearly 3h diner (very French!).More
Great oyster eating for a reasonable price. Services was a excellent. The fresh oysters were slightly salty by design and served with bread, salted butter and a white wine. The view was wonderful and overlooked the harbor
The seafront in Cancale is lined with restaurants cheek by jowl, and it can be difficult choosing any one of them as all of them seem to offer the seafood platters which the town is famous for. La Mere Champlain is one of the larger...establishments, and we were very satisfied with our choice. The food was tasty, well cooked and very nicely presented. The pace was good, and the service was too. The view from the window tables gives onto the main street and the sea beyond, which helps to pass the time as you sip your drinks and watch the world go by. The other distraction is watching fellow diners tucking into huge platters of crabs, langoustines, oysters and assorted other seafood, wielding pincers and picks.More
