Fodor's Expert Review Didier Méril

$$$ Dinard Modern French

Nudging right up to the beach in Dinard's historic center, this chic Michelin-starred restaurant has both gourmet fare and fabulous water views. Chef Méril takes his inspiration from the local bounty: fresh-from-the-sea dishes, such as salty-sweet Cancale oysters, fricassee de langoustines, and trilogie de poisson noble with lobster coulis vie with Breton specialties, like deboned squab dressed in foie gras. An impressive wine list, with 450 wines and digestifs from every region imaginable, satisfies the most discerning connoisseur. In warm weather, the seaside terrace is a fine place to enjoy a frosty glass of Champagne or an apéro. If you feel inclined to linger, on-site lodging is available in six stylish rooms that come with some endearing quirks. For example, the top floor's Room 6 offers spectacular ocean vistas from the bathtub, which is smack in the center of the room.
