Freshest fish around!

Call of the sea

Seafood is what Brittany is most famous for. Trawlers work day and night in the Saint-Brieuc bay to provide us with the best seafood : various fish, spider crabs, brown crabs, lobsters, shrimps, mussels and of course our iconic Saint-Brieuc bay scallop!
Have a seafood platter or a seafood dish in our restaurants.

Scallops and mussels

When the scallop season ends in spring, the mussel season starts!

The Saint-Brieuc bay counts about 200.000 wooden mussel poles. 13.000 of them are by the Hillion peninsula close to the nature reserve.

Mussel farming is a Breton tradition. Do not just eat them. Think about visiting the farms!

Or you could go shellfish picking at low tide in the Saint-Brieuc bay: clams, razor shells, cockles, velvet crabs…

Roll your buckwheat pancake

Wheat and buckwheat

You cannot leave Brittany without trying a buckwheat pancake! (a "galette")

This cereal from asia is the key ingredient to make the famous Breton buckwheat pancakes. Make them yourself or go to a specialised restaurant called a crêperie.

More specific to the Gallo-speaking part of Brittany (the other regional dialect, besides Breton) is the local sausage rolled into a buckwheat pancake: la galette-saucisse! It is considered by many as the Breton hot dog. Try this delicious snack on a local market.

Thirsty? Bretons usually drink buttermilk or cider with their pancakes. Yech’ed mat!
