From sea to plate

Tasting the flavours of the sea at Breton oyster farms and shellfish farms is the promise of a special moment that your customers will appreciate all the more whilst gazing at the sea. It’s also a unique opportunity to understand all about oyster and shellfish farming. Whether flat or Pacific, the oyster is an unmissable delicacy of Brittany. There are 12 oyster zones to discover, from north to south. Over the seasons and depending on taste, the seafood platter is embellished with crabs, clams, periwinkles, crayfish, etc.

01 – La Perle de Quéhan – Maison Quintin


“Chez Quintin” in southern Brittany, oysters have been farmed for three generations! On fine days, flat and Pacific oysters, clams, crabs and crayfish can be enjoyed on the large terrace with a view of the river Crac’h until the sun goes down. On request, visit the Perle de Quéhan and discover the oyster farming universe.

02 – Huîtres Arin – La Ferme Marine Paimpolaise


Go and try the oyster bar on Pointe de Kerarzic. Oysters, clams and tapas from Conserverie La Paimpolaise join this menu in an unspoilt setting facing Beauport Abbey. With the incredible view of the sunset, this is an eating place not to miss.

Introduce your customers to oyster farming and the marine environment!
