Dropped in on a cold February Tuesday evening and enjoyed a friendly welcome and warm fire. Food and wine interesting with novel cooking methods on rocks or on a hot metal suspended cylinder (forget what it was called!)
Would return

Chose this restaurant because of its extensive moules menu. Sat down and ordered wine, which was brought straight to the table, whilst we were choosing our food. Probably half of the dishes on the menu were moules. We both chose moules only to be told that they had none because moules were out of season!! We didn't know any different so accepted that and both ordered prawns cooked on a hot stone(after much googling!!).
The meal we got was strange and not very appetising. The plate had a big potato cut in two, some salad, one piece of cauliflower, rice,a raw sliced mushroom and 5 prawns, two small bowls of butter and some sort of dip and 5 x large raw prawns. There as then a hot stone brought to the table to cook the prawns on.
The bill was 54 euros for the two dishes, a carafe of white wine and a bottle of sparkling water.
We left very disappointed with what we had had.
I later checked out when is the season for mussels and it turns out to be from October to the end of March. we were there in February.
We had eat in the Atypic restaurant the day before and had probably the best meal that we had ever had in France. La Lycorne was the worst

Our first time here, and we really enjoyed our food and our evening. La Lycorne does not offer the traditional 3 course fixed menu, but offers something a bit different. There are meat and fish dishes, cook your own on a hot stone and tartiflette. All of which were good. There were also very nice deserts. It was obviously popular as it was busy when we visited. We would recommend here and would come gain.

We found this restaurants on our fist day in Dinan, a lot of the other establishments were closed. Although it would not have been our first choice but for those closures, we had a lovely evening there. I had moules, they have a extensive list of moule dishes, and y wife had the pierrade de gambas. The moules were small and deliciously sweet. Table grilling is a novel approach, but a bit of fun, and the prawns were delicious (would just suggest that they provide something to hold them with, they get very hot on the grill and it is a challenge to crack them that hot, my napkin was quickly obliterated). We had a bottle of Saumur Champigny to accompany, nothing to wax lyrically about, but a very pleasant, easy drinking bottle that was just right that evening. I would agree with the other recent comment about more wines by the glass, but that is just a minor aside in a pleasing discovery, one which we will revisit.

Monday in Dinan is a favourite evening for restaurants to close, but do not despair the La Lycorne is not a second choice. We arrived first shortly after 7pm and within the hour it was busy, and diners arrived throughout the evening. A suggestion would be to add more wines available by the glass.
