Food tour of Brittany

Medieval villages and a dramatic coastline characterise this traditional slice of France, where locals celebrate Breton culture with fresh oysters, delicious crêpes and tasty cider.
Dinan’s old city has a good choice of charming eateries and bars

Seafood

MARCHÉ AUX HUÎTRES

The idyllic little fishing port of Cancale, near St-Malo, is famed for its oyster beds and seafood at the Marché aux Huîtres. Locals sell their catch from stalls by the Pointe des Crolles lighthouse. Oysters are numbered according to size and quality: they’ll be shucked, dashed with lemon and served before your eyes – voilà, one perfect lunch (9am–6pm; 12 oysters from £3).

LE VIVIER

This convivial eatery is perched on a small cliff on the wave-lashed Côte Sauvage; bookings are essential for the top tables, squeezed onto a sun-trap terrace hovering above the rocky coastline. The menu is unpretentious – salads, mussels and smoked fish – and you couldn’t ask for a better spot when the sun is shining (00 33 297 50 12 60; 12 Route du Vivier; Feb–Nov; mains from £6.50).
