After reading reviews on Tripadvisor and seeing other higher rated restaurants closed we chose to eat at L'Aviron.
First impressions did not start well. Our two families turned up 15 minutes before opening time and we're told we could book a table and come back once open which was fair enough so we found a place nearby for a drink and waited only to see at least a dozen people let in before opening after us!

Once inside the restaurant was completely full only 30mins after opening. We ordered our food and waited. Over the next 2 and a half hours we were slowly served our 3 course set menu which for me is far to longer time to wait with young families.
Food was fairly priced for the quality, average to say the least. Wouldn't return and don't see what all the hype is about.

We were recommended by the owners sister who owns another restaurant nearby.We got the last vacant table inside the restaurant. Athough very busy, attention by a very friendly staff was immediate and we has drinks in minutes. The menu was very extensive so we chose one of the fixed menus and were very happy. Everything was very tasty and some of the dishes were new to us. I noticed the the fruits de mer were selling well and looked very large portions.

This was our second visit to Cancale, and having enjoyed our first experience at L'Aviron, we decided to repeat the experience and were not disappointed! They serve the best musssels around and the service is first class. We hope to return again soon! Merci!

It's about 16:30, early for eating in Cancale, but we are 6 hungry backpackers. When we arrive at L'Aviron, Zelia does not hesitate to arrange a table for us, and to hustle some good wine. Then the fun begins.

When I ask a man sitting at a nearby table to take a group photo, Zelia jumps right in. Everything she does for us exudes happiness and a quest to satisfy our every need. The food choices are varied, but no matter. When I order the beef tartare, she leans close to me and whispers, "You know it's not cooked?" "Yes", I reply. She smiles.

When my younger daughter appears, Zelia drags another table over and sets up for 7, not missing a beat. When my wife arrives with her ice cream, Zelia seats her with a flourish.

We have a grand time a L'Aviron, with good wine and food, and great service. When I ask Zelia to marry me, she says, "I don't understand english." Ha ha.

We ate at three places in Cancale. Without hesitation, I recommend L'Aviron to you.

This was our first meal in Cancale and it was good value with nice service. The rice pudding with salted caramel was a Highlight!
