True that the music started around 10pm, but hey this is France, back in the UK entertainment if between 8pm & 11pm and you are home in bed at midnight !  Over here nothing starts till around 9.30pm or 10pm which is when people pile in, which was indeed the case last Friday.  I counted about forty people eating, and there were about twenty in the bar, with more coming afterwards.

Hello astoria / eric.

I can confirm that we  were in the 'right' place. Yes a very nice drum kit and vacant guitars on empty set. Taking the guidance of early posts we along with several others arrived at 8pm after reserving expecting the place to be over run.Which it clearly was not. No complaints about the excellent fish and chips  but after what was approaching nearly two hours of eager anticipation and no sign of life on stage we along with others departed.

The only excitement appeared to be the rugby on the TV in the bar area; This was 9:45p.m..

I left feeling 'duped' and hugely disappointed. A simple announcement with some accurate estimation of the band/s appearance on set would of been helpful.

Hi britoninbretagne....Is it a wind up?   As Astoria said, you must have gone to the wrong place?   Or you are blind and deaf......the band was there

hi britonin bretagne,

We were watching the Band! not sure of the exact time when they started playing. (Surely you must have seen all the Stage set up with drums and speakers  etc, while you were eating your fish and chips. 

Where you at the wrong place?  Relais du lac at Caurel was where the event was at.

The band  was fantastic, well worth trying to see them again. We got home well after midnight. 

Maybe others who were there could confirm what we say. The complete staff all french, could not be more proffesional.

hope this helps.

Regards.

Well, Eric;we were there, Fish and chips were there, Where was the music?? A 2 hour round trip for this was pretty disappointing.

Hope this wasn,t  just an advertising ploy,

We don't get fooled again..........................
