French Galette – St Goustan

There is an overwhelming choice of eateries in Auray and especially at the stunning little port of St Goustan, however we arrived early afternoon and many had already finished lunch service. The French Galette is located just near to the bridge that connects Auray with the port and has stunning views across the river with... Continue Reading →

Le Roulis Ouistreham

We walked or rather got blown along the promenade and noticing that Le Roulis appeared to be the busiest and most welcoming of the restaurants open at the time decided to give it a try.

The menus are concise and a range of specials was also featured on blackboards dotted... Continue Reading →
