Can anyone recommend a good quality restaurant for evening within the area of Josselin, Merdrignac and Ploermel. By good quality I mean both ambience and food similar to Relais de Porhoet in Guilliers. Its for a special occasion and needs to be "special". Please dont recommend the one across the canal from the castle in Josselin.........been there, done that and not at all impressed !!!!!! Thanks in advance.
Hi there, I dont know if anyone can help but its my partners 50th birthday on Christmas Eve and I am trying to find a restaurant either doing a "Christmas Soiree" or something during the day time. I have tried la Rotunde but am getting no reply so can only imagine it is shut. Can any one else suggest a special restaurant. Many thanks for your help.
Would anyone be interested in joining up to order veggie and vegan food from a supplier in the UK? As a vegetarian there are very limited supplies here in France, and many things are expensive. We can order online from Suma http://www.sumamarket.coop/ who have a great range with discount for bulk orders, so if anyone is interested in clubbing together to save on postage (£12 for up to 20kg to france) or get things a bit cheaper by buying in bulk then please let me know; This will be a non profit making way of helping out fellow veggies. We are in the central Brittany area near Gourin.
Interested in finding out about being veggie in Brittany? Join us for a free lunch! We're celebrating WVD for the 4th year on Saturday, November 7th - it's Open House from 1pm onwards. Just call in to sample our buffet with a glass of wine. English / French, veggie or not, all are welcome. An opportunity to discover how being vegan is not only good for the animals but for your health and the environment.
As my name infers, I am not averse to food, and with many exploratory missions I have found some excellent 'Buffet volonte' chinese restos. But what eludes me is a good Indian resto. We have eaten french indians, but are not impressed, is there an Indian in 22 or 29 (or even further), that serves quality english standard indian meals, Madras, Vindaloo, Butter chicken to name a few. Please do not post singing the virtues of french food, we eat french every day, and 'integrate' as best we can,buy french cars and don't go to Tescos once a month to 'stock up',etc etc etc etc..... Merci en avance.
(with delicious vegetarian option). If anyone is looking for a place to go for a traditional English Sunday lunch, then we can thoroughly recommend a Chambres d'hotes in Plaudren near Vannes. Please email me direct and I will send you a link to their website. You will, however, need to book in advance.
