Where to eat in Dinan

Where to eat in Dinan Just wander the cobbled streets, you'll find plenty of choice. There are also lots of restaurants along the river Rance, many with terraces overlooking the Viaduct offering great views. Le Colibri: A smashing little bistro with a lovely early 20th century vibe interior. The food is sublime – seasonal, fresh and innovative classics and the chefs work closely with local producers. If you love great food – go here. La Fontaine du Jerzual, on arguably Brittany’s prettiest street, is a creperie, brasserie and tea salon. Enjoy traditional Breton crepes at this lovely restaurant that’s loved by the locals. It’s in a beautiful location, is comfy and stylish inside with a big terrace area for sunny days. It’s not expensive, the staff are friendly and they do a great Kir Breton! Where to stay in Dinan Maison Pavie B&B is truly special. Built in the 15th century. This listed building is simply exquisite from its half-timbered, arcaded exterior to its elegant interior with ancient wood floors. There are lots of original features but you’ll find it has all mod cons: big, luxurious bathrooms, sitting room overlooking the square with its looming Basilica. Owner Jérôme who is also a marvellous cook (guests can dine here) bought the building in 2010 and had it renovated to a luxury level with interior design good looks. The house is named after a former owner, French diplomat and explorer Auguste Pavie. Useful websites Brittany Tourism
