The kingdom of the oyster
Oyster lovers will be in their element at the end of the port of La Houle on the ‘Administrateur Thomas’ quayside. Here, the stalls are filled to overflowing with baskets of freshly harvested “flat and cupped” oysters, direct from the producer. If your mouth is starting to water, try them just as they are or with a little lemon juice on the terrace of one of the many restaurants in the port, or sit by the oyster market looking out to sea and enjoy the friendly and lively mood around you. Cancale holds a national award as a “site of exceptional taste” and its environmental quality has been a source of inspiration for the finest chefs in the region, attracting lovers of fine food everywhere.
