Very popular with French and foreign diners, this delightful restaurant was doing a brisk trade on a sunny day in mid October. And we soon found out why. The staff were friendly and efficient, the lunch menu looked great and tasted even better. There cannot be a better restaurant in Roscoff, can there? If so, please let me know.

We eat here regularly every time we stay in Roscoff. Food is beautiful, beer strong (if you want it) and staff are very nice. It does get very busy at peak times though.

We visited this lovely resto for dinner on a Monday evening. We were a party of four. Situated across from the channel the atmosphere was enchanting. The resto had two comfortable outdoor terraces for al fresco dining with a killer view. Inside there was a lovely dining room which comfortably sat approx 20 people,again with a lovely view, and a...

We (six of us & all 'foodies') had a very good lunch here, but surprisingly there were few other diners. This is possibly because they don't do a set lunch & so the meal will, inevitably, cost more. Maybe they are busier in the evening. Certainly the standard of food & service meant that they should be busier.

We had lunch here as a group of six. The restaurant was surprisingly quiet and we had the lower, rear dining room to ourselves. We chose the set menus at €29.00 and €35.00 because they offered dishes that appealed to different members of our group. The service was impeccable being attentive without being intrusive. Despite being in a room on... More

We stopped here without a reservation at 7pm. By 7.30pm the place began to fill up with plenty more customers. It offered a fairly quaint environment in which to dine. The food was o.k. but not entirely filling. We were offered a carrot veloute before the Queen scallop starter both of which we thought quite delicious but not of any... More

OK, so I may be a little on the large side and should lose a few pounds, but I am not chips with everything Brit. Having loved here for 3 years now I do appreciate fine cooking and have come to love the way the French present the best ingredients cooked quite simply but very tastefully and I know the... More

We liked the look of the menu and walked into an empty rear dinning room at around 7:00 pm on a Saturday night. But it quickly filled to capacity which gave it a pleasant ambiance. The staff were friendly and polite and some spoke excellent English when our Franglais failed us. I chose Queen Scallops which were lightly seared to... More

We had a nice meal overall, service was attentive without being overbearing but the main course was slightly disappointing with the pork roast being transformed into bacon / lard. Maybe a question of supply but better to change the menu or inform the customers in that case ! The rest of the meal (5 people) was quite ok but that... More

Arriving at a slightly damp Roscoff to catch the ferry to Plymouth and having parked in the huge car park opposite, our arrival at L'Ecume des Jours - without a reservation - coincided with a downpour which threw the staff into a temporary frenzy of activity. Diners seated under umbrellas on the terrace had to be relocated hurriedly in the... More
