Saint-Suliac Things to Do
Music being an integral part of the Breton culture, much room is made for musicians of all types during this type of festival.
The grand Parade is what most of the tourists come to see, starting at 17h00 from the town hall. Passing down in front of the church finally finishing on the riverfront. It shows of much of traditional Brittany in the dress and old traditional dances and trades.
The first weekend of August is the annual St. Suliac : 100 years ago festival over 2 days. Many of the village's inhabitants dress up and others adorn their houses with fishing nets and other gear. There is some good Breton music to listen and to dance to, and plenty of tables and benches around to rest your weary legs or quaff some cider and traditional Breton "galettes", a type of pancake made with buckwheat.
In the streets are some typical handicraft stalls and you can see people making old-fashioned wooden clogs or brodery. The weekend finishes with a long parade showing off some of the typical dress in the village over the ages, some women bringing out the "coiffe", typical headress, and then at 19.00 a Fest-Noz starts down near the river. This is a typical Breton feast with much music and dancing and carries on until the early hours.
This is, for me, the best restaurant for miles and that includes all the so-called "3-star Michelin" restaurants in the area. Certainly not the cheapest, but for delicious food, good service and a terrific atmosphere cannot be beat.
As you can see on the menu (2nd photo) a menu with loads of choices is 29 euros p.p. or just take a main dish and dessert or......
UPDATE - The name of the restaurant and the address have changed slightly and is now bigger, having taken over the bar/tabac next door. They can now deal with take-aways and also delicatessen food to take-away. The price for the delicious food is still at 29€ (unchanged since 4 years) although there does seem to be a couple more "supplements", and the service and reception by the same owners is still good. Telephone number has not changed but they now have a web-site.
FURTHER UPDATE Dec. 2014.
Unfortunately the restaurant has decided on a more "nouvelle cuisine" route and is, for me anyway, worse off. Under new management the price also has now risen from 29€ to 31€ for the menu. Add on aperitifs, wine and coffee and you're almost at 100€ for two!!! The food is still very good but to my mind this is way too expensive now.
Favorite Dish: Although I vary my meals when I come here, I love the spare ribs, finishing off with the "gateau aux 3 chocolats" Delicious.
