Carnac is a gorgeous town in Brittany, with the rugged Breton coastline to its south and the historic megalith site of Alignements de Carnac to its north. Wondering where to eat during your stay? Read on to explore the best restaurants in Carnac, and expect seafood galore.

Huitres le Priol
Fishmonger, Food Kiosk, Seafood, $$$
A really special spot. Huitres le Priol offers the simplest setting, but the most idyllic. Benches and cushioned crates right by the water complemented by the freshest of oysters directly from the sea. Watch the fishing boats go about their tasks and chat to the passionate owners. This is what Brittany is all about, enjoy it.

La Brigantine
Restaurant, Seafood, French, $$$
A coastal vibe at upmarket La Brigantine in the heart of Carnac with impressive seafood dishes to match. There is a lobster menu (€68) right down to a lunch menu (€21), but the À la carte is pretty amazing, too. Almost too much choice, in fact.

La Calypso
Restaurant, Seafood, $$$
Such a fun, colourful, traditional restaurant right on the Brittany coast with pretty harbour views. Only about 10 minutes from the centre of Carnac in the tiny hamlet of Le Pô is a real traditional Breton treat. There’s a real warmth to the welcome and the food here, whether eating fire-side in the cooler months or out front in the sunshine.

Chez Marie
Cafe, French
Crepes are synonymous with Brittany and Chez Marie has to be one of the most loved creperies in and around Carnac. Sweet or savoury, you name it, they’ll be able to do it for you. Located in a traditional Breton building right in the centre of town, make sure you visit it at least once (or for every meal) during your explorations of this part of the world.

Côté Cuisine Restaurant Carnac
Restaurant, French
On the route down to Carnac Plage is Côté Cuisine Restaurant Carnac. A gorgeous outside space accompanies this resturant — perfect for balmy Brittany nights — and the menu is well thought out and extensive. All the regional and traditional classics served, although somehow with added colour in this vibrant venue.
