Gourmet Seafood Dining in Granville
If you love seafood, then Normandy should definitely be on your bucket list. There are a good number of restaurants, shops selling fish and seafood and producers to visit. I can highly recommend Le Restaurant du Port in Granville although I’d recommend booking. When I went recently it was full by 8pm and would-be diners arriving in the hope of getting a table were disappointed.
The speciality is seafood and the restaurant resembles the inside of a ship. There are three dining areas – a covered outside veranda which leads to the main restaurant and then an upstairs ‘deck’. It’s located on rue du Port and overlooks the harbour. During July and August it’s open for lunch and dinner every day. Otherwise it’s closed all day on Mondays as well as Thursday and Sunday evenings.
The menu is extensive and offers various set menus (formules). The lunchtime formule is 14,50€ which is dish of the day and either a dessert or a coffee. There are other options such as duck and steak but endless seafood opportunities. I saw an amazing seafood platter being taken out to one of the outside tables – it was a work of art!
The service is efficient, prompt yet friendly. The quality of the food was excellent. It’s more of a special occasion dining experience but well worth it. For more information and to browse through the menu visit the website.
