A fine dining with locally sourced products in Brittany
At Bodeuc’s restaurant in La Roche Bernard, we only use locally sourced ingredients, respecting seasons, and working with local producers (Breton Product). We create simple and traditional dishes, perfect in their execution. We insist on providing a relaxed atmosphere with attention to detail and attentive service.
We keep up with new trends, but resist fashion without substance. We always remember that cooking a product is as important as the product itself….
This is all about local cuisine, this is the food that we want to offer you.
Our dining room
Our menu changes every night, and for 32 euros (25 € starter ans main or main and dessert) offers a choice deliberately limited. One should remember that a cuisine fresh and executed the same day need limits if wants to remain authentic.
The half board price is at 40€ (breakfast + dinner) for a stay of more than 3 days.
A choice of 3 or 4 starters, according to season, foie gras confit with Guerande salt or cooked on Chestnut cream, Saint Jacques from Saint Brieuc roasted and citrus vinaigrette, Mackerel rillettes, casseroles of Langoustines tails with a Lobster coulis…. Dishes?, Fish or meat. Roast saddle of lamb with sweet spices?, a Cod fillet with beurre blanc?, a Guinea Fowl supreme with Morels?, a typical fish stew? A filet mignon of organic pork and Arabica cream?
Our desserts? Duo of crème brûlée tea and chocolate, fondant, tart Tatin, Giboulees of strawberries from our garden …
We don’t have a set menu, as we change everyday a starter, a main and a fish, and one dessert.
Although our approach is not locavore or activist, the result is, most of our products are locally bred, grown or produced in accordance with the traditions in Brittany (and by consequence often organic).
Beeing local allow us to know all of our producers personally. It give us the chance to be part of an essential ecosystem.
It gives you the chance to discover exceptional products, created by local craftsmen. Those craftsmen are part of our beautiful landscape, they are the authentic Brittany.

The intransigence of our neighbor Louis Rabillard, producer of lamb in summer and lumberjack in winter, who will never accept the heresy of Easter lamb tradition and treatments needed to produce them.We will never have Lamb at our Easter menu as long as Louis will reject chemicals.
The kindness of Marie-Charlotte and Verena Indekeu that perpetuate a tradition of exception in Quiberon, including jams you will taste in the morning for breakfast.
The skills and know how of Emmanuelle and Olivier Regent, our advisers and trainers for our cheese plates. Only them are capable of making a star of a local cheese rather banal through a flavor maturation of three weeks with Muscadet wine. Noticed by the Gault Millau guide in 2012 in the category «our prefered cheesemakers refiners», their efforts were recognized this year.

Morbraz, Our beer is brewed with seawater and its iodine accents are very refreshing in summer. An exceptional work made by Michelle and Thierry Bernard
It is worth to mention Christian Lembert, our oenologist, who identifies for us the wine producers having a promising future success in the Loire valley and elsewhere.
