Cafe Breton

Reviewed By K2683GRlc

Located the restaurant via TripAdvisor which was walk-able from the hotel. It could not have been a better choice - we had booked the last table for 6 people with our French friends! The choices and quality of the meals were wonderful and no issues with our likes and dislikes, in fact some dishes were changed to accommodate no meat or garlic! We had a wonderful night with lots of French and English spoken! The lady who served us was a delight! Would definitely return next time in Rennes.

Le Bistrot du Quai

A nice little traditional restaurant near the city centre. With a warm and charming ambience, le Bistrot du quai offers you home-made cooking with fresh seasonal products. From Monday to Friday, you can taste traditional French “gastronomy”, classical dis

We found this restaurant through Tripadvisor while in Rennes, and made a reservation by phone an hour before lunch. From that moment, I had a good feeling about the place. The friendliness over the phone in spite of less than perfect French on my side, was inspiring.Once arrived at the nice looking corner building, we were seated with the same friendliness as had been experienced by phone.The choices were somewhat limited, but absolutely adequate, and the quality of the food and the presentation of the dishes was all top notch.On a Monday, the place filled up to approx. a 90% level, which is quite impressive. Most people seemed to be local, and we appeared to be the only tourists there. But, we were treated as locals, and had a most pleasant meal - at a very reasonable price. Good value for money!Having our summer house an hour away, we will definitely come back.Thanks a lot for this very kind advice. It had been a real pleasure to welcome you and we immediately saw that you are found of homemade cooking and nice wines. The whole team hopes we'll see you again when you come back to Rennes. Thanks again.

Racines

Reviewed By TequilaPepita

Racines was recently awarded its first Michelin star and this was a good reason for us to try this new venue in Rennes. Located in the leafy rue de l'arsenal, this small restaurant seating at best 30 people, has a lady head chef who cooks from an open kitchen. Only a 3 course set menu is available for lunch very attractively price at only 28 euros per person. We ended up trying all dishes available that day. They were all very well presented and delightful in taste. The Riz au laity as dessert was incredibly nice. A must try when in Rennes!

Don’t let the simple setting of this restaurant fool you - the food is top notch with reasonable pricing. For a first course, we had gazpacho with crème fraiche and layers of sliced radishes with herbed goat cheese and a caramel sauce. Our main courses were a local white fish with a rice pilaf and tomatoes and duck breast over a sweet potato purée and plum sauce. Our desserts were a pear soup with whipped cream and an almond cake with a thin layer of whipped raspberry icing and bars of semi-sweet dark chocolate. The service was great and friendly. The total bill with two glasses of a nice local white wine was €60.00. Reservations required. We would definitely go back in the future. Note: in Brittany, it seems to be the rule that there is only one sitting so the table is yours for the night.Thank you so much.In Brittany & in France, the restaurants use to have two sitting. But at Le 2 rue des Dames, we just have one, so yes : the table is yours for the night (but please let us go to bed, lol)See you.Julien.

Reviewed By paulinester

Passing by in France, a friend recommended this place to me. I am usually quite fussy with food but this time I really wasn't disappointed! the food was excellent! fresh food and typically french. 1 waitress and 1 chef which makes it a very friendly restaurant, the waitress was lovely, friendly and warm and the cook came to ask us what we thought about the food. the price was reasonable too.I highly recommend it! this is my new favourite spot in Rennes.

The outside tables of this creperie are a relaxing place to watch the world stroll by on a lovely (and pedestrian only) street. The cook and waiter was charming, friendly, and efficient, though busy once there were ten guests at the restaurant. The menu has fewer selections than large places, but carefully chosen, with a daily special. You also have the option to design your own crepe. We enjoyed local beer Saint Colombe, local cider also being an option. The menu shows the suppliers of ingredients and products, a welcome touch. Our savory crepes were delicious, we shared a dessert crepe with blood orange ice cream, excellent. Good value.

Creperie Ouzh-Taol

Reviewed By PaulandJen_10

Had lunch here, went with a main course each and a sweet crepe for desert. They brought out a little slice of a really tasty crepe as an asume bouche which was lovely and spicey. I then had a gallete with mustard cream sauce and sausage whilst my wife had a prawn, scallop and chilli one. They also had more traditional choices if you fancied them. Both were delicious and I would happily have returned for dinner. It was also reasonably priced. Definitaly it's one to book though, it was chucking it down and we were lucky to get a table for lunch, but for dinner I think you'd need to make a reservation.

IMA

Reviewed By TequilaPepita

We had lunch at Ima, a one star Michelin restaurant and ordered the Pause set menu priced at 30 euros. This was our second visit and the offering was as good and creative as during our first visit. Most dishes are Asia-inspired reflecting the countries where the head chef worked. Whilst the food deserves a one Michelin star, the service was somewhat amateurish on this occasion. Yet a very good experience overall.

Les P'tits Potes

Reviewed By TonySwiss

This is the kind of restaurant I could imagine eating at every day, were I to live and work in Rennes. It is small, crowded and friendly, and our food was unpretentious, very tasty and extremely good value. We both chose the lunch special, chicken breast and potatoes, and it was great, perfectly complimented by the house red. I couldn't resist the superb chocolate lava cake dessert. If I'm ever in Rennes again, this is where you'll find me!

Le Congres

Reviewed By Ruth B

We really enjoyed the food at Le Congres, the restaurant is beautifully decorated, really chic and cosy and the staff were pleasant. Foodwise, the meat and sauces were delicious and the truffle mash was really exceptional.The restaurant has a nice atmosphere the only downside being that the music was too loud. Whilst we enjoyed the DJs choice of music, we were under a speaker and found it very hard to hear each other around our table of 5. We asked a few times for the music to be turned down but each time it seemed to creep back up to the same volume. In conclusion, I really reccomend this restaurant and will definitely be back, but we would have much preferred it if the music was a bit quieter.
