Restaurant: Elven!

Ok so now coming even closer home or rather my job location, this is a restaurant discovered because a collegue lives in the town, took the family, took other collegues to eat here always great. This is in Elven a town in the Morbihan breton of lovely Brittany.

The restaurant is the Hostellerie Lion d’Or, 5 Place le Franc, Elven across from the Church St Alban.


We went by noonish by car to the Hostellerie Lion d’Or; the building dates from the 16C! It is wonderful country food , as the best in France. We started with lots of conversation  to be accompany by a good Saumur-Champigny red Les Longes . And more red wine… In all a great lunch to finish the week.  More of this recommended resto is on the city of Elven, here: City of Elven on the Restaurant Lion d’Or


Very good restaurant, with fresh and quality products whether from the land or the sea., I have come three times already.  An updated decoration that highlights the rustic side of the place. Good value for money, incorporating a good selection of wines. Efforts have been made in terms of product quality, this may be due to the fact that the hotel is no longer a hotel, and that those responsible are more focused on resto,indeed. Note very good in house and takeaway burgers with very good fries.


Always a warm welcome and bright renovation of a magnificent listed building;  this is what will mark you from the threshold of the restaurant. The son is on the floor with the mother and the father in the kitchen. The cuisine is quality, simmered with fresh produce and homemade course. We appreciate the mixture of generations that expresses itself in the menu: hearty and delicious burgers, or traditional dishes, just as generous.  Vegetarians will appreciate the gourmet dishes offered to them.


The Morbihan tourist office has a fiche on them here: Tourist office of Morbihan on resto Lion d’Or/


There you go a nice place to eat away from the capital city of Vannes. Here in Elven off the beaten path on the N166 road direction Rennes then off at St Nolff to take the D775 direction Elven centre ville (city center).  You will have the real chow à la française good local fresh produce , owners on hand, and la vie en rose!! Enjoy it

And remember, happy travels, good health, and many cheers to all!!!
