Le Bar Iode’s name is a pun as the word “bar” both means “bar” and Blackbass”!
It is a resolutely modern establishment combining bar and restaurant.
One can drink there almost all day, but diners should remember that last food orders are before 21:00!

BAR-IODE-3

Lobster/homard salad!

Seafood is definitely their forte, and with the proximity of the sea, the crustaceans are especially top-class.
Bretagne vegetables being what they are, expect some great salads!

SN3O0033

They do come with some modern dishes such this succulent langoustines/gambas served fried with a chorizo sauce!
Use your bread! LOL

SN3O0035

We did arrive a bit too late to order all the dishes we wanted, but they still made the effort to serve this splendid assortment of smoked fish despite the closure of the kitchen and the departure of the chefs!

All in all, highly-recommended for a nice drink and a casual light meal!

Beautiful local oysters served with seaweed pearls!

In a city replete with crepe restaurants Le Jardin d’Ete provides a great escape to other Bretagne cuisine in a cosy interior in the old city!
To add to the decor customers seem to be of a very convivial sort!

SN3O0012

Oysters of course are a must but do try the fish and scallops gratin!

SN3O0013

Enormous scallops brochettes are a beauty, too!
Unpretentious, delicious and so generous!

SN3O0014

They do serve specialties from other regions such as home-made canard confit/preserved duck!
Absolutely tender and elegant!

SN3O0018

But keep an eye and a space for the desserts!

SN3O0019

Meringue and red fruit sauce and sorbet!

Although lunch is attractive enough, definitely a reliable address for dinner, but you had better reserve!
