Brittany September 2017 Report - Dinan, Vannes, Paimpol, Plancoet Restaurants

rrems | Oct 11, 201704:55 PM

After three days in Normanday, we headed to Brittany and were based in Dinan for three days. A full report with photos, hotel and travel information, and restaurant reports, is on my blog:

In Dinan, most of the better restaurants are closed on Tuesday, Wednesday or both, limiting our choices somewhat. Here is where we went.

In Dinan:

Auberge du Pelican. Huge cold seafood assortment was impressive. Foie gras ravioli was great but a small portion. Overall, a very good meal.

Creperie Ahna. Open on Wednesday, and a real find. Highly praised on Tripadvisor, we were glad to be warned that booking is necessary as it gets very busy. We found it to be a lively place with excellent traditional food and quite inexpensive.

In Vannes:

Le Roscanvec. It has one Michelin star and a 30 euro lunch that is excellent value. Excellent food and reasonable wines.

In Pointe de l'Arcouest, near Paimpol:

Le 360. Noted in Michelin for good value, it has beautiful views too. A very pleasant place to have lunch, but skip the disappointing desserts.

In Plancoet:

Maison Crouzil. For Stanley's birthday, we celebrated with dinner at this Michelin-starred restaurant a short drive from Dinan. Everything was memorable, but particularly my lobster appetizer, and the flavored butters offered with the breads. The 68 euro menu is a very good deal.

After Dinan, we headed back to Paris via Chartres. See my Paris posting for these.
