After a full day of sightseeing, I got to dine at the one and only Alhambra. This restaurant is located opposite the Odet, Benodet between the lighthouse and the beach of Coq. The place has a very nice terrace and an inner frame that combines stone and wood in an elegant and simple manner. I sat on the very pleasant terrace to enjoy the sun of the last hours of the afternoon. Then at night, I saw the parade of boats returning to port. As for the menu, we decided to order a calderada with rice and seasonal vegetables. We washed everything down with a little south Lie Muscadet Sevre-et-Maine, and for dessert, a little cheese with berries. The service is impeccable, and the owner is a real character, a jovial man who takes the time to greet his customers and exchange a few words with them. You can get a great value here as we had a great meal for only 30 euros per person.
If you feel like taking a short gastronomic break to Benodet, I recommend you try the restaurant known as Escapades. This small restaurant is not far from the ledge of the sea, at the end of the beach of Trez. It is open every day, and from Tuesdays to Sundays it opens at lunchtime. The daily menus (which change daily) cost between 12€ and 16€, but there is also a menu you can order from. The house wines are personally selected by the owner. The inside is elegant and includes an indoor dining area for up to 48 diners. The restaurant features a covered and heated terrace, with a capacity for 32 people and sea views, very sunny and nice on a clear day. It is a simple and relaxed which is always nice to eat enjoying the atmosphere of a warm and modern bar.
The Garrec François biscuit factory is located on Highway 44, between Benodet and Fouesnant. It was founded four generations ago and is a factory with handmade sweet cakes that are famous in this region. Upon entering the store (which is more than 200 square meters), the smell of hot biscuit mix and butter saltwater fascinated us and opened our appetite. The place is full of traditional products, fresh quality that will delight the sweet tooth! Personally, I prefer the house crepes (made on site), Britain cookies (pallet Breton) and the famous Kouign Amann. Everything was delicious. You can also find among the store's shelves many great sweet ideas that are very typical. Finally, keep in mind that there are regular guided tours, Monday-Friday, 9-16 pm (to be sure about the times, please contact the factory).
