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

Brasserie style with a twist of contemporary touches , very good and fresh ingredients cooked at perfection . The excellent point is... More

We really enjoyed our dinner at le Galopin and the traditional French food they served. The saffron creme with scallops is one of the best dishes I have ever eaten!

I met two colleagues there for dinner. They both live in Rennes and speak French far better than I but neither is French (one is native Catalan the other German). Our waiter was perfectly happy speaking English with us -- which is sometimes but not always the case in Rennes restaurants. +1 for that! No English menu however and it's... More

Le Galopin is a traditional French restaurant. We went for Thanksgiving dinner and it was a perfect choice. The fool was elegant and delicately prepared. A great choice fo r sea food. The service was friendly and attentive without being bothersome. At the end of the meal, one of the waiters pretended to drop an espresso in my girffriend's lap... More

As most reviews have stated excellent food and even better customer service. Refreshing to eat at a restaurant that is competitively priced with a quality product. Our waitress gave easily the best service we've had in France.
