Cuisine Montoise specialities : Both the manageress and chef are locals and they love serving local savoury and sweet specialities. Chef Sylvain Bourmaud uses sardines from Saint-Gilles-Croix-de-Vie and shellfish prepared marsh-style in the restaurant’s kitchen, based on a recipe explained by Sylvie. Le Quai des Dunes also offers a sweet version of bignaïes (pancakes), which were traditionally eaten with desalted bacon, and curds (caillebottes), a milk dessert served with local strawberries. It was Ginette, a native of Soullans, who shared the secrets of her curd recipe with the restaurant.
