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.

Visiting Rennes with work colleagues. Chose Le Galopin based on reviews. Thank you fellow reviewers for directing me to a gem of a restaurant. Warm welcome, friendly staff, wide choice of food and wine. I had the oysters to start with a delicious Sancerre, then lamb as mains. A crime brûlée finished the meal. A glorious Bordeaux recommended by the... More

This is a great address, with excellent consistent food. The only problem is its popularity! Think about calling Bruno to reserve!
