Where to start? ... we are so spoilt for choice it is difficult! To make sense of the over 50 restaurants in a 25 minute radius, we provide detailed information on most of these to ensure you get the most from your culinary experience of Brittany.

Only a 2 minute drive or a 1km walk is the crêperie in St Yves on Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings and 5 minutes drive (or a walk through the forest) brings you to the old mill at Botconan where you can spend an evening relaxing overlooking the lake and sampling some great pizzas. Or a similar distance away is the child-friendly Ty Val.

We also have details of those elusive workers restaurants which only the locals seem to know, where you can still get a hearty 3, 4 or even 5 course meal for £11 including wine. We can provide assistance to make any bookings.

We are incredibly fortunate to have nearby the delightful bar at Minazen along the river Blavet; the ideal place to relax an have a beer, coffee or ice cream after a walk or cycle ride or a day at the river beach.
