Dedicated vegetarian/vegan food in Concarneau. Bright, welcoming and reasonably lpeiced. Our lunch was a tasty pomme de terre gratinee with a salade compose. Fresh and tasty. We thoroughly enjoyed it. A real find for any vegetarian but also good for anyone wanting alight lunch.

Looking for an alternative to the Breton creperie for dinner whilst staying overnight in Concarneau we checked Trip Advisor and found this vegetarian restaurant which sounded promising. The restaurant is small with just a few mismatched tables and a rather bizarre collection of plastic and silk flower displays in the window. We started with gazpacho which normally we both love and sometimes make ourselves, but the flavour of the gazpacho we were served was disappointing. It was extremely bland and appeared not to have any garlic in it. So on to the next course and we had both chosen a tomato and basil tart with salad. When it arrived it was certainly not what either of us were expecting - an individual tartlet with a wholemeal pastry case containing a frankly peculiar filling - something which I can only describe as being like a hot tomato custard with just a single slice of tomato on top and the taste of basil was absent. From the photos other people have uploaded showing flans and salad we had expected something much the same. The waitress realised that I wasn't happy with my flan as I left most of it. Desert was a slight improvement but very basic - a banana puréed like baby food in almond milk with sliced banana and cinnamon. We both normally love vegetarian food, but what we had sadly ranked low in terms cooking standard. Be aware that this is a vegan restaurant which may explain the strange tomato flan.

How amazing to turn a corner in Concarneau and find a vegetarian and vegan restaurant. The owner was very friendly and helpful - explaining the menu carefully and answering all our questions, despite my broken French. My salad was fresh and delicious and my partner's saute tofu and potatoes was declared very tasty with a nice balance of flavours. There was a good selection of drinks and desserts and all at a very reasonable price. Definitely worth seeking out - even if you are not vegetarian.

This small restaurant is very central and offers very tasty dishes, beautifully seasoned with fresh ingredients. The owner should be applauded for opening a vegetarian restaurant in this country where so few seem to appreciate the health benefits of a meat-free diet. There are plenty of vegan options on the menu too. The service was very good and a special effort was made for our eight year old daughter who doesn't exactly love salads yet.

This tiny restaurant is just off the main seafront road in the middle of Concarneau. It is pretty unusual to find a vegetarian restaurant in France so this was a delightful surprise. We were a party of 7 including 3 small children. The staff couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. The menu was small but freshly prepared, and delicious - crisp salads and deep quiches, or rice. lentils and curry. The placemats were brown paper, which made great drawing paper, keeping the children all amused between courses!
