We had a planned group dinner here and were very well looked after. The menu is varied with all the local specialties and the service excellent with very friendly staff who found us an English speaking waiter to describe perfectly all the options.

Booked in via St Antoine Hotel two doors down as, have to admit, struggled to make contact directly via website. All staff -waiters and Maitre De alike- were fantastic. Never made us feel inferior just because we have no grasp of the beautiful French language. The food was delicious, the service second to none. The anniversary candles on the crepe... More

Following a good experience last year, we went once more to the "Galopin" and had an unpleasant experience in term of food quality and presentation. The foie gras was poorly cooked and presented, for the magret de canard we had pieces of magret which were not pleasing, the taste was a mix of flavors not usually found in duck, also... More

During my visit to Rennes, I went to this restaurant to have a dinner and I was delighted because of the high quality of the products. I tried a very good champagne, very good red and white wines (from Bordeaux), local oysters (fresh and amazing quality) and monkey fish, which will be very good. Regarding the desserts, big variety of... More

Every bite was delicious, the staff were lovely and courteous, English was spoken which was a bonus. On holiday from Australia, we dropped in unexpectedly and they greeted us with smiles, took our coats and fitted us in to what was obviously a very busy Saturday night at this popular restaurant. Even so, we were not rushed, and given the... More

Excellent food, superb service, very attentive you will not be disappointed. Do book, during the evening we visited people arrived and queued for a table not something you see very often. Possible one of the best meals of my life.
