    American's Snacks: an American in Plouhinec

    by gwened Written Jul 18, 2015

    This was a pleasant surprise I usually take another road but somehow today wanted to pass the bridge Pont Lorois and we saw this brightly American so of course we stop by for a look.

    Funny the young lady could speak English and spill the beer on me oops, quick cleaning nervous perhaps of speaking English ::)

    The place is just after crossing the bridge pont lorois from Belz to Plouhinec on your right hand side. They have a full menu with Bud and corona beers, burgers ,hot dogs and milkshakes.

    this is the same owners as the bakery next door at the foot of pont Lorois,by the before Passage-Neuf. Tél :+33 (0) 2 97 85 60 59. Unfortunately, they were close for serving food until 17h the rest ok to 20h,

    Favorite Dish: we had some corona beers just to try the ambiance but will be back for more later on nice burgers and hot dogs on tap !

    Quick: quick fast food in Europe,quick

    by gwened Written Jul 5, 2015

    this is a quick fast food joint just outside Vannes in the town of Plescop. The Quick chain is of Belgian origins and well implanted in France, sort of a competition to the American burger joints. Fast food simple and inexpensive.

    From our experience we have try them all and Quick can be a good match for food, taste and prices.

    This one was recently renovated and it is very clean, nice children playground and many menus à la American. Also children menus and toys with them.

    Nothing new all its standard with drive in ,free parking, and burgers, fish, ice creams milkshakes etc. Reasonable price to compete with the rest . the resto is well located for those going and coming to the beaches and inner old city Vannes. Not in Vannes but close but decided to post in Bretagne page as per geographical location.

    Favorite Dish: we had our burger with bacon,fries , seven up and strawberry milkshake

    A la Bonne Heure: nice country French at Lanester

    by gwened Written Feb 21, 2015

    This was a find. We come here for shopping at CC Deux Rivières (see separate tip) , but never had gone to this side as the area is huge full of shops and restos. So we took the country road and got in on the other side of the shopping center, mall. and we saw this resto. After we look around, we decided to come back to it and have our lunch.

    It was very nice welcome well explained the process. You get your own tray and utensils, , and drinks, then pay all at the cash register ordering your hot dishes or menus. The menus start from 3,95€ for kids to 14,99€ the works. However, we took the 8,99€ menu with entrées and desserts and my kids took the hot dish (steaks), entrées and desserts for 10,99€ all a wonderful deal.

    The resto is all in pine wood outside like a barn, and then Inside very modernly clean done with white tables and grey and red chairs. Very spacious and clean place with very attentive service and a nice welcome.

    Open Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 11h30 -14h30 and 18h30 - 21h00
    Fridays and Saturdays from 11h30 -14h30 and 18h30 - 22h00
    Sundays from 11h30 -14h30 and 18h30 - 21h00

    and see link for other resto locations in France!!

    Favorite Dish: we had entrées that means salads, chorizos, quiches, veggies and then desserts apple and chocolates pies, chocolate syrups, vanilla flan, mousse de chocolat. My sons had the same plus the hot dish of steak and fries. Then a bottle of red Bordeaux, bottle of water, five coffees all for 13,40€ per person , great deal!

    Le Petit Verger: traditional breton french country ,monterblanc

    by gwened Updated Aug 3, 2014

    This is a jewel, tucked away in a corn field on a hamlet near the town of Monterblanc in the breton Morbihanaise. I was here on business and finally got photos.

    The deco is 100% country, with family hosting of old farmers themselves; the produce is fresh right off the farms in the area. You think you are going to a country barn but its a longere breton with a full restaurant inside; and richly decorated in a country setting.

    The presentation of the table and food leaves nothing of the fancy Parisien restos. Land and Sea mingle here with great dishes .Last service for lunch is at 13h30 and for dinner is at 21h15. Closed Sundays and Mondays, and major holidays

    Great center of arts, both in sculptures and paintings by local artists the place is enchanting, I shall return in private.

    Favorite Dish: foie gras for entrée, terrine de sanglier(wild pig) first dish, then skeweds of beef with vegetables, nice fruit dessert in a pineapple sauce, and coffee and water. Includes a bottle of Rully red from Burgundy.

    by gwened Written May 9, 2014

    Well driving around the area, you get hungry too,and for a quick meal on the run ,delicious French breads and inexpensive, nothing beats the famous, logical, superb French Boulangerie.

    We were in city center and going out we saw this nice big place by a square with plenty of patrons so we went in.

    The place is a typical café style place , on the left extreme there is the Cave aux Chocolats, a cellar full of fine chocolates, then the middle section is the bakery with delicious baguettes and pain de campagne, and croissantes, then on the extreme right there is some tables and chairs and the sandwich ,cake ,drinks section.

    All nicely done friendly and helpful service, bring the plate to you.

    Favorite Dish: formule for 6,90 is the best, big huge baguette with tuna, and a glass of terrine Nutella dessert,and an Orangina soda. you can go for the lesser 6€ or the cheap 4,50€ without dessert.

    CourtePaille -Theix: steakhouse à la Française, Theix

    by gwened Written Oct 5, 2013

    This is as close as you can get to a steakhouse in France, its a nice country decoration, great friendly attentive service, and moderate prices. The food is well presented and fairly good for the price range of cuts.
    Not the biggest steaks if comes from more of the beef countries but it will hold its own. Great for a family outing and lunch.

    The resto here is off the main road expressway N165 and as it is close to stores we comes to shop, once here we might as well eat out on the weekend and try it.

    Favorite Dish: the grills dishes are varied, plenty of size, and tender prices, like the underbelley cut onglet de boeuf in mustard sauce with french fries, for 19,90€ ,then had the great Affligem blonde beer, and a nice cafe gourmand with small cakes and expresso coffee.
    others had the courte paille steak burger big beefy burger,and other cuts of steaks all tender , and juicily wonderful, serve fast.

    Eating out with children in Bretagne

    by CatherineReichardt Updated Aug 19, 2012

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    (work in progress)
    This tip is prompted - at least in part - by a recent forum query asking about the location of MacDonalds outlets in one of the culinary capitals of the world because they were 'travelling with children'.

    I find it so sad that people do not have the confidence in their children's sense of adventure and taste to 'risk' exposing them to the food of other cultures when they travel. Food is a universal language - and one that, as a poor linguist I have fortunately learned is a superb fallback - and given the opportunity and encouragement, most children are far more adventurous than we give them credit for.

    So, let's start with the Safe Option. Many menus in Bretagne - especially in the main tourist areas - will feature a children's menu. To be blunt, this pretty well equates to 'chips with everything', but the upside is that it's at least more culturally aligned than a burger, and the universal 'jambon et frites' (a slice or two of ham and chips) is likely to satisfy all but the fussiest of eaters.

    Next up the scale of adventurousness are les croques. Croque Monsieur is the French twist on a toasted sandwich theme, either panfried or grilled with a generous lubrication of butter and a filling of ham and cheese, whilst Croque Madame is similar, but includes an egg. Both are almost universally delicious and perhaps once you've persuaded your child that something with such a foreign name is both scrumptious and unintimidating, then you're ready to take the final leap.

    The final step is when your child graduates to ordering from the adult menu. In Bretagne, the most obvious option is to order a galette - a buckwheat pancake folded around a filling that is the Breton version of fast food - or a crepe (a more conventional wheat pancake). Both come with a bewildering selection of fillings to suit any taste. Most kids love pancakes, so perhaps if they're not used to savoury pancakes, start them off with the more conventional sweet options: the local salt butter caramel is divine, although so calorific that the only reason that you don't just smear it on your hips is that you'd bypass your taste buds in the process!

    Bon appetit!

    Roadside Picnic Table: Eat Al Fresco

    by hquittner Written Nov 3, 2007

    Eateries are not the only place to eat. Having a picnic saves time and money and can be an adventure! In Brittany when the weather is mild, the easiest thing is to stop in a grcery or charcutery and buy lunch meat, cheese, fruit, bread (or toast-crackers) and beverage. You should always carry a French waiter's opener-knife (See separate Tip). Bon appetit!

  • Chez Armande: A Shame!!

    by Thierry_G Written Sep 13, 2007

    Years ago, I went to this restaurant and had a SUPERB seafood dinner there for a very affordable price. So, believing it was the same owner (and especially the same cook) Having had a look at the Michelin guide, I truly believed I would have the same experience again, so I went there in August this year and... The only words that come to my mind are: SHAME ON HIM
    Shame on the owner AND cook. His only interest is in your wallet. He tries to stuff as much guests as possible in the restaurant, no matter if you have room enough. The seafood was REALLY BAD. It looked like deep frozen food (a shame in a city like Concarneau.

    MY ONLY ADVICE:
    If you like seafood go somewhere else!!!

    A GOOD ADDRESS for seafood, and not far away is the Hotel des Cerisiers in la forêt-fouesnant about 15 min away from Armande (the description is on one of my other pages)

    Favorite Dish: NOTHING
