Restaurants, Creperies and more...

We are lucky to have an excellent selection of restaurants and eateries both locally and a short drive from from the Gites at Kergudon.

The Restaurant Au Lac is just down the road and is one of our favourite places to eat whilst watching the sun set over the stunning Lac Du Drennec. Auberge Du Menez in the neighbouring village of St Rivoal sources only local ingredients and gives a gastronomic experience in the Monts d'Arrée. If you're looking for a touch of class La faïencerie in Daoulas is perfect for an elegant lunch or dinner with one of our favourite chefs.

Take a look below at our restaurant recommendations whilst you are self catering in Brittany.

Ben & Dave's Top Restaurant Recommendations


Situated in Daoulas,La Faïencerie is Ben & David's favourite restaurant. This old pottery has been lovingly renovated and is now an elegant and sophisticated eatery. Yann the head chef is very talented and his menu is full of exciting dishes using local ingredients with a modern twist.


Situated in Landerneau, the Bistro Du Pont is a lovely restaurant ans worthy of a place in our top three. This ancient building on the bridge in Landerneau has been lovingly restored and in now a modern and cosy Breton restaurant with an exciting menu that changes with the seasonal produce. 


Only a few short minutes drive from Kergudon will get you to the neighbouring village of St Rivoal and its wonderful restaurant, Auberge Du Menez. With a very local supplier list and a great ethos, this gem of a restaurant offers a modern and gastronomic take on traditional Breton dishes.

  • Feel Good – Brasparts (12 minutes by car from Kergudon) is home to this quirky bar-restaurant-pizzeria-grill. We have had some excellent pizza (Really excellent!) in this place and there is a great atmosphere always. Feel Good is a little further from our gites in Brittany but worth a visit especially if you like good pizza. Have a look or contact them directly here.

...a little further afield, but worth the effort!

We obviously cannot list all the restaurants around but there are many to choose from during your holidays in France and Brittany boast some of the most amazing produce and chefs. Here are some of our favourite restaurants that are not too far from Kergudon Gîtes in Brittany:

  • Le Crabe Marteau in Brest (45 minutes by car) is exceptional and a lot of fun. The menu is limited but 'it does what it says on the tin', fresh crab and a hammer .... entertaining and delicious.
  • Le Viaduc in Morlaix (25 minutes by car) serves absolutely gorgeous food and is right in the heart of the medieval town and well worth a visit. Have a look at their website for opening hours and contact details. Restaurant Le Viaduc Morlaix
  • Lé Grande Café De La Terrasse in Morlaix has one of the most beautiful interiors harking back to the wealth of Morlaix in its golden age.  We would describe this as what Café Rouge and other chains are poor imitations of when trying to replicate a typical French (Parisian?) café. This the real thing. Excellent for both lunch and dinner or just a coffee in the sun. tel: 0298882025
  • Les Bains Douches in Morlaix is in fact the old bath houses of Morlaix and is set in the back streets just next to the river.  Traditional dishes with taste and ambiance, this is another fun place to try especially in the evenings. Booking is essential as it is always full. For opening hours have a look at their website: Restaurant les Bains Douches
