It's a small quaint restaurant that seems to be popular. We arrived at 7pm and were the first guests to arrive. Although we did not reserve, there were seats available. The food was delicious and came in good sized portions. It's not the best food...More

I would expect this impersonal attitude in Paris but not in Rennes. We arrived at 745 pm and were offered the only small table available in the bar/kitchen while several preferred tables remained empty all night long. Perhaps the staff mistook for Americans. In any...More

We walked in at 8pm without a reservation and were told we would need to vacate the table by 10pm. We had the homemade soup of the day, which was fabulous, followed by Hake with a seafood risotto and Veal with roasted potatoes and salad...More

Very convenient for our temporary home at La Demure de Marnie just across the road, we were happy to be able to eat here without a reservation on a Friday evening; this meant sharing a large dining table with two other couples, but that simply...More

Although well-known by locals, I wouldn't recommendit to tourists. The service was rude and unwelcoming, we were brought undressed lettuce on a plate of hot (tough) lamb and potatoes instead of the promised green beans,which did not go well- no explanation offered. My beef was...More

I've been there with friends, the lamb was great and I was full! Everyone enjoyed. Waiters are really welcoming too.

Food was great traditionally French. Friends had to help me decipher the menu items. Service was good, but we had a kind of rude waitress.
