Five friendly restaurants on the water's edge Before or after the beach

Five friendly restaurants on the water’s edge

Holidays rhyme with summer, beach, swimming, relaxing… and the desire to prolong the pleasure with a little meal on the water’s edge. Take off your sandals, here are five ideas for restaurants to delight in and to chill!

Pancakes at any time, opposite the lighthouse of Île Vierge

Crêperie La Route des Phares in Plouguerneau

Full view of the Île Vierge lighthouse! In Plouguerneau, behind the fences on its terrace, Crêperie des Routes des Phares proposes a varied menu. Whether you want a sweet or savoury crêpe, you’ll be served at any time of day here. The mix is home-made, with organic flour. The ingredients are essentially local. Every week, the chef’s suggestion changes: line-caught pollock, foie gras cooked on the barbecue, etc. Don’t forget to leave room for dessert: palet Breton ice cream, Plougastel strawberries, etc.! Or you can sit comfortably in a deckchair and just have a drink as you watch the sun set. The house speciality is the breizh mojito. With cider, of course…

Festive vibes in Quiberon Bay

Les Voiles in Plouharnel

Did you enjoy the beach or surfing session on the Quiberon peninsular? Continue the fun atmosphere at Les Voiles, in Plouharnel. The huge wooden terrace and garden of this bar-restaurant offer a breath-taking view of Quiberon Bay. Start with a cocktail in the bar, to the sound of a DJ who gives rhythm to the cocktail hour in summer. The menu includes essentially local products, often with a touch of the exotic. The fish of the day is prepared ceviche-style, the buckwheat has an oriental twist, the vegetables are marinated and served in a whole artichoke… Sunday is brunch day, to enjoy with family or friends. Remember to reserve.

Natural street food opposite the privateer city

La Cabane à Manger in Dinard

Vintage mood at La Cabane à Manger, in Dinard harbour. In their colourful little caravan, Virginie and Jacques concoct 100% local and often organic street-food. After a swim, sailing or boat trip to Saint-Malo, try the sea-themed tapas: spider crab claw and mayonnaise with Roellinger spices, fried sand eel from Saint-Malo, seaweed tartare, etc. to share on an upcycled terrace. Poke Bowl with local vegetables, ceviche and toasted buns with farm products complete the menu. Add a beautiful sunset to enhance the evening or a little stroll on Promenade du Clair de Lune. Isn’t it lovely?

Quai de la Perle in Dinard. Every day from 6 June to 31 August, 9.30am to 8.30pm

Shack style on the Rhuys Peninsular

La Cabane aux Poissons Rouges

Order at the bar, take a seat at a table with a view of Goh-Vélin beach… and wait to be called to pick up your food. That’s how it happens at La Cabane au Poissons Rouges in Saint-Gildas de Rhuys, without any fuss! In 10 years, this pop-up guingette, from April to October, has become a real institution on the peninsular. People come here both for its casual spirit and its organic, local and home-made cuisine. On the menu: grilled sardines, Pénestin mussels, buckwheat blini burgers, scallops cooked in Kari Gosse, etc., to enjoy on the beach.  When you’ve finished, you have to clear up!
