Here you’ll always find the best of the Brest festivities! Grab a seat under the glass roof or on the back patio of this 1950s bistro, and pop open a bottle of natural wine to celebrate the house’s cuisine. Made by Laetitia Huguen, it’s sometimes a little messy, but always wonderfully comforting, like the night we went: pan-fried palourde clams with a chorizo espuma made to be slurped up without hesitation; a bistronomic oyster and beet carpaccio with shallot vinegar: classic pork tenderloin topped with a mushroom and savory cream sauce – or roasted mullet fillets with a velvet crab cream and crisp vegetables; then cheeses from Sten Marc in Guipavas – or a nice cream of chocolate, chilies and apricots to finish. // Y.N.
