We traveled by car from Paris to Cancale, and after checking in and getting our bearings, asked our hotel concierge for a recommendation for dinner. Chez Victor did not disappoint. Our party of four each had different menu selections, all delicious. The oysters of course were our favorite! The waiter was friendly and interesting. As it was off season we were able spend a few extra minutes talking with him, exchanging travel and local stories. It was a delightful evening in every way.

The setting of this restaurant is amazing with views over the harbour. The food was excellent and the service was good. Waiters spoke English and of course French fluently. It is very interesting to walk around this area and see all the various oysters been sold at a market. Tractors pulling trailers laden with oysters pass frequently. Cancale is an interesting town but parking is somewhat limited.

Great location near the pier and the oyster market. Absolutely great service. Our waitress was the best. Ordered Oysters and shrimp for appetizers then had two different fish plates, both very good. For desserts, we had the pudding and the crepes. This was part of the lunch formula: entree, main dish, and desserts for 15.50 euro a person. Not bad at all and so delicious too. Highly recommend if you are in Cancale.

Overlooking the Bay of Mont Saint-Michel and situated next to the oyster market, by dining at Chez Victor, you can watch the oysters arrive by truck and also the merchants selling the oysters in the market area . It can't get any fresher. THE BEST oysters (and I am a huge fan of Wellfleet oysters). A plate of oysters with lemon, a bowl of their soup du jour, a good local beer or crisp white wine, that's all you need! Heaven. If you are not looking for white linen tablecloth ambience, this is the oyster scene at its best!

With a great view across the bay, I was a little bit wary because I worried that it was extremely busy because of its location.

The service was efficient and I can understand why people say it was rude; our waiter (who looked like the head waiter) went off to do something else whilst we were in middle of ordering our food. However, they were very patient and friendly with our toddler who - as usual - was walking around rather than sitting at the table.

We decided not to have the fruit de mer and instead ate from one of their set menus. And we were very glad that we did. The food was excellent; fresh and delicately flavoured; well presented. At Eur25 per person, we thought it good value for money.
