The sense of service
Nearly three decades after the opening of the restaurant, the Breton chef likes to remember how far he has come since his entry into the kitchen, where the family culture used the products of the farm to cultivate this vocation.
Christian L’Haridon will go on a classic apprenticeship course to a kitchen chef and chef in establishments all over Europe: First at Mademoiselle Le Guilloux at the trout inn in Locmaria Berrien for his CAP and clerk, chef de partie at the Waterside Inn in Bray with the Roux brothers in England.

All these products that I grew on the farm with my dad
We liked this restaurant a little disconcerting because the dishes are only offered orally. The reputation of Mr. L’Haridon being more to do, we can only trust him. Everything is perfect: originality, subtlety, presentation, colors, flavors … We have given the same confidence to the sommelier with the same very satisfactory result. Also note a waitress very smiling. Beautiful setting in a room overlooking the garden. A very good time to celebrate a birthday.
We had a great evening, a nice discovery of the gourmet passport. Very nice chef with innovative cuisine that we loved, we will come back and recommend to any couple for a little moment in love. (Not to mention The waiters smiling and very nice) The young people of Pacé.
