They say “a dog is a man’s best friend”, and if
you own a pooch you’ll almost certainly agree. At Eurotunnel Le Shuttle, we know how
important your dog is to you, which is why we’ve worked hard to make sure our
pet travel service is the best around. In fact, more than 1 million (and
counting) happy pets have travelled with us so far! As well as making sure you
have a great journey, we want to help you have the holiday of a lifetime. We’ve
selected a few of our top dog-friendly eateries around France, so you can enjoy
dining out with your pooch this autumn.
Havre, Upper Normandy
Le Havre is one of northern France’s biggest
ports, and it’s less than a three-hour drive from Calais. Here is where you’ll
find La Voile Bleue, a pooch-friendly brasserie which serves up delicious
French cuisine. The majority of the menu is seafood, which makes sense when you
consider its location, with a few other dishes thrown in for good measure. We
recommend starting your meal with a dozen of Normandy’s finest oysters, followed
by a seafood platter, or a juicy steak, and a chocolate fondant for dessert. Try oysters in Normandy.

Paris, of course, is full of amazing places to
eat. From fine-dining restaurants to family-run brasseries, Paris has something
to suit every diner, every meal and every mood. Breakfast is the most important
meal of the day, and the Café de l'Industrie is a great spot to tuck in. Take a
seat at the dog-friendly outdoor tables and take your pick from the
mouth-wateringly good menu. Café (coffee) is a must, as are croissants and
other French pastries. For something more substantial, choose eggs and smoked
salmon. Délicieux!Indulge in a French favourite: buttery croissants.

it: Locronan, Brittany
The crêpe is one of our favourite French dishes,
and we’re not the only ones! These thin pancakes are now eaten all over the
world, with all kinds of toppings, but nowhere are they more delicious than in
France. Located in pretty Locronan, Brittany, Crêperie du Temps Passé serves a
whole range of crêpes, from the sublimely simple to the creatively complex, and
it’s dog-friendly, too! It’s best to turn up with a big appetite, so you can
try both savoury and sweet. Enjoy sweet and savoury at crêpes at Crêperie du Temps Passé.

The Auberge du
Moulin hotel-restaurant can be found in the South of France and it’s well worth
the drive. You and your pooch will be welcomed with open arms for a delicious
meal of classic French fare. One of our favourite items on the menu is a
regional classic: beef served with mashed potatoes. Although it sounds simple,
it’s far from it. The beef comes from Fleur d'Aubrac cows (cows
who are pure-bred from an Aubrac cow and a Charolais bull), and the mashed
potatoes are blended with cheese and a little garlic – well worth the drive!Beef and cheesy mashed potatoes is an Aubrac classic.
