We visit Concarneau two or three times a year and never miss going to our favourite Breton restaurant. The food is always very good and the service friendly and usually multi-lingual. It has a French family atmosphere and children and dogs are welcome. There are spacious indoor and (covered) outdoor dining areas. When we invited a local French friend to dine with us and asked her where she would like to eat, without knowing that we already knew La Porte au vin, she recommended it.

We visited here on our 2nd night in the area having seen reviews on tripadvisor. I can only assume from previous reviews that locals are served a different menu from tourists!

We ate off the a la carte menu, the scallops appeared to have been previously frozen but still enjoyable, but they were nothing compared to the entrecote steak that followed...fatty, tough and frankly unappealing!

Bottom line is this was below any French standard that we have ever known in past 30 years!

A gentleman waiter was helpful and did speak good English so that was helpful but the other waiting staff were a little disappointing.

Whilst not directly the fault of the restaurant, I would also not recommend non-smokers sit in the terrace...

Walk on up the street there are other options!

We walked and shopped in this lovely town after taking the bus from Quimper. It was busy, but service was great. We split a half liter of wine and my husband had this very wonderful pork with a salad and fries. We need to find a similar recipe and make this at home. I got fondue which was way too big for one person. It came with a salad and a huge pile of cold cuts. Also potatoes and crunchy bread for dipping. Yow. 38e. Impressed with food in this part of France!

After a stroll through the somewhat touristy centre of Concarneau, we descended on La Porte au vin for lunch and to give the children their first real taste of french cuisine.

We were greeted by friendly staff - a dizzying choice of the meal options and some of the speediest (and finest) food I've had in a long time.

The children both opted for the crepes (offered in both sweet and savory formats) while my wife chose a salad and I opted for as local breton pork dish.

Within less than 10 minutes of the order being taken the food was at the table. Excellence without exception and clean plates all round. The crepes were light and perfectly cooked.

All up the entire meal came to €49 (this was without anything alcoholic by way of drinks)
