Best Local Restaurants

Finistere has a great choice of restaurants to choose from. The website brittany tourism has some good listings, and here are some of the best local restaurants favoured by our guests. The list is by no way exhaustive (and I will try to keep adding to it) but it can hopefully point you in the right direction.

Cap Sizun Area

L’auberge, 24 rue Guezno, Audierne. Tel. 0298 70 59 58  Only open in the evenings Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Phone ahead to book (speaks English).

Creperie du Cap – Plogoff Tel. 02 98 70 60 52 – Old fashioned creperie with very good crepes

Boulangerie Ty Forn – Audierne.  Walking into this little bakery in Audierne will make you think you have just landed in planet gourmet.

Creperie Au Gouter Breton  36 rue jean jaures, Douarnenez Tel. 02 98 92 02 74 – A long time favourite but you need to get here early or book ahead.

Restaurant L’Insolite in Douarnenez. From the outside the ‘Hotel de France’ on the main street looks like the sort of outdated place from a bygone era, but step inside and be pleasantly surprised. The decor is a mix of modern bright colours mixed with beautiful old breton panels and modern pieces of art. The crisp white table cloths and friendly attentive service make it feel special, and the food is both tasty, creative and beautifully presented. The lunchtime menu is especially good value.  4 rue jean jaures Douarnenez. Tel. 0298 92 00 02
