Second time here...wonderful food

I have to say that the first time I went to Le Galopin I was in a rush as my train from London had been delayed...blah, blah. But I met my hosts here, and the restaurant was more than accommodating. And the food... Well, this time, I took a little longer to choose, and the same with the wines... read more

We were in Rennes to visit friends and relax at that point of our honeymoon. Decided to try Le Galopin one afternoon for lunch. We were given a table and an absolutely gorgeous meal. We ordered off the set menu... and it was absolutely good value for money plus the food was delicious! so the food... well the foie gras... More

Great little restaurant a true gem, from the classic lobster tank in the middle of the room to the excellent service this place is great. Only 200 meters from the station it's well worth getting the train into town just to eat here.

Great French at reasonable price. Stuff can speak English and served friendly. 28ユーロから52ユーロ?くらいの間でコースが選べます。リーズナブルな価格なのに料理はどれも美味しかったです!私たち夫婦はあまりたくさん飲まないし少食なので、少し残してしまいましたが、普通の方にはちょうどいいかと。前菜のオイスターは34ユーロのコースで3種類が3つずつ乗ってきました。贅沢!選べる種類も多くオススメです!高級店に行き慣れていないので、コスパ重視でしたが大満足!

We recently stayed just outside of Rennes and it was our first visit so we didn't know where to eat. Someone suggested this restaurant but we weren't that impressed. We had a set menu and one of the courses was veal with a sauce but when it turned up it was a mixture of kidney, heart n other nasty bits,... More

No need for details Simply perfection.From the starter to dessert.My wife and friends had the salmon to start which not only look good but tasted even better,the mains were equally as good but may be a little rich for some palates,all in all a perfect meal.

Although there are no menus in English, waiters kindly helped me with the food choices. I ate an excellent Foie gras as a starter, then a fantastic roast veal for the main course and Crème brûlée which was the highlight of the dinner and overshadowed the main course and I am especially grateful to the waiter who talked me into...

Went in for a business dinner without much expectation. Was very pleasantly surprised. By the time we left, the place was packed. Food was very good. I had a sole meuniere which was very well prepared table-side. The wine list was excellent and not too priced up.

An absolutely charming young waiter made this evening meal all the more enjoyable! Sat outside on an early Saturday evening. Amuse bouche very tasty. Had confit of duck (tasty, but a little on the dry side). Too full for a dessert but encouraged by said waiter! Had crême brûlée which was good, though unadorned - just sat in its' dish... More

Hotel Mercure Rennes Centre Gare recommened this restaurant. This was a birthday meal ( although we did not notify the staff), and the whole night was great. The food was excellent and the service very good. Would return, can not believe so little reviews. Also have english speaking waiters - though not needed Close to sncf station and centre
