Restaurant: Le Gavroche, Vannes!!!

And I continue this lovely ride into updating revising my old posts in my blog. It has been a wonderful rollercoaster of many nice memories. One of them was this restaurant now ours in Vannes. Let me tell you a bit on the Le Gavroche restaurant!

After all, not others but for me, gastronomy and wines and France is simply the best. And if you read my blog you know where I have been and what credentials I have on wines. Anyway, let me give you a off the beaten path beauty to salivate your best desires.

This is in my capital city of Vannes, and the district of Saint Patern, the oldest part, and less frequented by visitors who usually stay around the Le Port and the Cathedral area of old town. However, you need to come up higher …. best way from the ramparts take rue Francis Decker, that runs alongside them, and take a right at Rue Alain le Grand ,and then left at Rue de la Fontaine go up and just in front of the Church of Saint Patern on your left hand side is the Le Gavroche restaurant! Ok go for it!!!  Exactly ,Le Gavroche,  17 Rue de la Fontaine, Vannes, don’t leave the city without eating here ok.


We walk around looking for a restaurant in the Saint Patern district of Vannes. In our walking tour of a city and this one is our Capital in the Morbihan, we came upon this picturesque restaurant. We went inside and voilà a friendly conversation right away with my dear late wife Martine and the owner of Le Gavroche. We came to know them well and even provided us with some contact to paint our house the same way as the restaurant sort of…. Using the same local painter!! Needless to tell you we have come here several times even for anniversaries of our family. We love it ,and hope you do too! The very warm welcome, which is becoming rare nowadays , the attention of the waitresses and the owner throughout the meal. All the way eaten out in France was meant to be. Highly recommended.


Smiling welcome, aperitifs with or without alcohol (cocktails) very good, a corner apart so as not to disturb other customers. Very good dishes overall. small “shotgun”  digéstif of rum and sweet liquors like vanilla are arranged and offered by the house.  We prefer to warn you, you risk immediately fall in love with this restaurant in which you are warmly welcome Chantal, Francis (the owners)  and a young team of Le Gavroche. It goes without saying that here everything is fresh, traditional cuisine is simmered beautifully .Discover: the superb collection of rum bottles arranged!! The shotgun!!!


Oh yes  , let me tell Le Gavroche is news vendor urchin with a beret like hat.  A fictional character in the 1862 novel Les Misérables by Victor Hugo. He is a boy who lives on the streets of Paris!

  1. I knew exactly who Gavroche is—I have an incredible love for Les Misérables. If if wasn’t for the musical, wouldn’t have read it
