  • At the Coq en Pâte in Lesneven you'll be lost for words: old stone walls outside, contemporary décor inside, and Breton cuisine.

    Roughly speaking, the name of this restaurant means 'Happy as Larry', and that's just what you'll be when you try it, because chef Yann Kermarrec has finally come home - and that's good news for food lovers in Brittany. He's back in the house where his family has lived for four generations, not far from the famous Abers in Finistère, after an apprenticeship with the best Michelin starred chefs in France and ten years in Polynesia, where he first met his wife. First surprise: behind the old stone walls lies a modern decor. And the second? The very best of local Breton produce enlivened with faraway spices and a hint of the Provencal. You'll see what we mean when you try the just-cooked tuna in spicy roulade garnished with crunchy wok-cooked vegetables, or the 'chipirones', summery sardines marinated with olives and ginger... It's different and it certainly wakes up your taste buds!
