Last evening we went out to town for dinner. We were craving for seafood, and with the help of a local lady and tripadvisor found this amazing crab restaurant by the harbor.

The menu was all about crabs and shellfish with the exception of a few fish courses. The tables were covered with old newspapers, walls were filled with crab- and sailing-related accessories and we were surrounded by the sound of banging hammers as people were crushing the shells of their crabs to get a taste of the yummy meat. The place was packed and apparently we were lucky to get a table without reservation. The cherry on top of the cake was the enormous bowl of ice cream, strawberries and whipped cream for dessert.

Highly recommended if you pass by Brest!!
