Restaurants & where to eat during your holidays in Brittany

The best restaurants and where to eat during your holiday in Brittany.

We are lucky to have an excellent selection of restaurants and eateries both locally and a short drive from from the Gites at Kergudon.

The Restaurant Au Lac is just down the road and is one of our favourite places to eat whilst watching the sun set over the stunning Lac Du Drennec. Auberge Du Menez in the neighbouring village of St Rivoal sources only local ingredients and gives a gastronomic experience in the Monts d'Arrée. If you're looking for a touch of class La faïencerie in Daoulas is perfect for an elegant lunch or dinner with one of our favourite chefs.

Take a look below at our restaurant recommendations during your holiday in Brittany.

The best restaurants close to Kergudon

AU LAC RESTAURANT

This restaurant is a gem and is sited in the most picturesque of locations overlooking the beach on the Lac Du Drennec.  Mercedes, owner and head chef at this charming eatery offers an excellent menu of fresh, colourful courses often with a south-Asian twist, as well as traditional favourites.

Au Lac Restaurant is just 2km from Kergudon Gîtes and takes less than 5 minutes by car. Alternatively you can take a lovely walk from Saint-Cadou through the forest and along the shore of the lake which will take about 40-50 minutes but is a wonderful way to build up an appetite before enjoying lunch by the lake.

Au Lac Restaurant is open from Easter to early autumn. Please check seasonal opening times.

Reservations are recommended. tel: 0298240097

LA FAIENCERIE

This is one of our favourite restaurants. La Faïencerie is sited in the pretty town of Daoulas which is a 20 minute drive from the Gites at Kergudon. This old pottery has been lovingly renovated and is now an elegant and sophisticated eatery. Yann the head chef is very talented and his menu is full of exciting dishes using local ingredients with a modern twist. Our favourite thing to do on a Sunday morning is visit the weekly market at Daoulas and then have a leisurely lunch at La Faïencerie before a beautiful walk around the estuary or the stunning coastline.

  • Feel Good – Brasparts (12 minutes by car from Kergudon) is home to this quirky bar-restaurant-pizzeria-grill.

  • L'Unique, Restaurant Du Relecq  - In the very heart of the Monts d’Arrée and opposite the Abbaye du Relec, the setting for this restaurant is surrounded by woodland.

  • Pub St Hubert – In the centre of Saint-Cadou you will find our French/Irish bar/pub. More of a French bar than pub.

...a little further afield, but worth the effort!

We obviously cannot list all the restaurants around but there are many to choose from during your holidays in France and Brittany boast some of the most amazing produce and chefs. Here are some of our favourite restaurants that are not too far from Kergudon Gîtes in Brittany:

  • Le Crabe Marteau in Brest (45 minutes by car) is exceptional and a lot of fun. The menu is limited but 'it does what it says on the tin', fresh crab and a hammer .... entertaining and delicious.
  • Le Viaduc in Morlaix (25 minutes by car) serves absolutely gorgeous food and is right in the heart of the medieval town and well worth a visit. Have a look at their website for opening hours and contact details. Restaurant Le Viaduc Morlaix
  • Lé Grande Café De La Terrasse in Morlaix has one of the most beautiful interiors harking back to the wealth of Morlaix in its golden age.  We would describe this as what Café Rouge and other chains are poor imitations of when trying to replicate a typical French (Parisian?) café. This the real thing. Excellent for both lunch and dinner or just a coffee in the sun. tel: 0298882025
  • Les Bains Douches in Morlaix is in fact the old bath houses of Morlaix and is set in the back streets just next to the river.  Traditional dishes with taste and ambiance, this is another fun place to try especially in the evenings. Booking is essential as it is always full. For opening hours have a look at their website: Restaurant les Bains Douches
