Welcome to Les Jardins Sauvages
You are in the hands of our chef, Gilles Le Gallès. A lover of fresh produce, he creates menus during the seasons where each variety of fruit, vegetable, root or herb can find its place. Gourmet, of course, but also completely organic and local. At Les Jardins Sauvages, nature sets the pace.RestaurantLoungeMenusThe Chef
A la carte
Based on the chef’s inspiration and the products available within a 50 kilometre radius, our menus contain marvellous flavours, textures and colours. Day after day, the menu follows the movements of nature, changing completely every two months. Delicate steam cooking, dishes highlighted with a vegetable jus, fish... or a few flower petals: both good, beautiful and healthy.
More than 600 ingredients from 45 suppliers, 35 wines... At Les Jardins Sauvages, everything is organic (excluding fish which cannot be classified). The Chef develops his gourmet palette within a 50km radius, from producers who share the same “organic/local” ideals. “Made in Brittany” food through and through! The restaurant is one of the few in France to be 100% organic certified since 2013.
The chef Gilles Le Gallès
A former student of Bernard Loiseau and Gilbert Lecoze, he became a head chef at various Parisian restaurants which he owned, notably La Barrière de Clichy, a traditional cuisine restaurant, and Aristippe, a restaurant specialising in fish. Originally from Vannes in Brittany, he decided to return home in 2005. Since the creation of the Yves Rocher Eco-Hotel & Spa “Les Jardins Sauvages” restaurant in 2009, Gilles has managed a team of 9 chefs and 8 restaurant staff.
guided by the vegetable garden
At Les Jardins Sauvages, we look at nature to take what it offers... and at the specific moment when it is ready to do so. Directly surrounding the restaurant, the vegetable garden is used to monitor, over the seasons, what the La Gacilly lands produce in terms of fruits, vegetables and herbs. The Chef is guided by this principle, his inspiration and a simple rule: anything that isn't blooming isn't ready for the plate! Take the time to stroll through the garden before your meal...
The bar & lounge is a place where you can take a break in any season. During summer, out on the wooden terrace, it offers a unique view over the vegetable garden, the artworks installed on the site and the fabulous sunsets. During winter, it invites you to enjoy an aromatic tea or infusion around the fire, leafing through the artworks available in the library. For an special occasion, this friendly and relaxing space transforms into a piano bar, adding a touch of entertainment to this cosy atmosphere.
Le Végétarium café
Just 600m from the Eco-Hotel, Le Végétarium Café offers a pleasant gourmet stop-over in the picturesque village of La Gacilly. On the menu, a leafy setting, bathed in light, and a focus on the “Brasserie”-type food at the Les Jardins Sauvages restaurant. You will find local and seasonal products, cooked in respect of authentic flavours and aromas... Everything in a laidback and friendly atmosphere which hosts entertainment and concerts/drinks as well as work meetings!
