Stunning food, excellent service and beautiful environment...

We visited Rennes for the day in order to catch the renowned market which was wonderful in itself. We then wanted a restaurant for some lunch but were a bit unsure of which to go for. We nearly didn't go in here and I am so glad I listened to my wife who insisted that this was the place she... read more

Family-run restaurant seving local dishes. We had the 30E menu with delicately stuffed rabbit breast and a tasty dessert of strawberries and cream. Madame Faby speaks English and was helpful to explain the menu terms we didn't understand. Service was good. Some folks have complained about the decor, but I don't see anything to complain. It's French contemporary: I wouldn't... More

Last evening in Rennes before hitting the road again towards Austria. I decided to give Le Cours des Lices a try as I was roaming arround the old town quarters. It will certainly not be cheapest restaurant I went too as part of my trip, but I will remember it as the best restaurant I have been too in a... More

After trudging round Rennes centre looking for somewhere nice to have dinner on our final night of a tour of Brittany we were on the point of giving up when we noticed Le Cours des Lices tucked in between some bars. It was a Saturday night and the town seemed full of bars but sadly lacking nice restaurants. We decided... More

Looking from outside you may think of a traditional Bretagne restaurant but inside the furniture is modern and functional. Good cooking and fast, kind service. We tried "désssosé de pigeon" and "magret de canard" closing with a dessert ("Mousse de caramel de beurre salé" and "chariot de fromages" summing up a bill of €90 with water and wine "en carafe"...

My wife and I went here the other night for a "special" night out without the kids (which doesn't happen very often). We read the reviews and thought that it looked good. The food is good. We both had very satisfying meals, the wine recommendation worked well also. The decor is where I think that they can improve a bit.... More

The location and outside appearnce of the restaurant do not fully match with the very tasteful and chic modern interior. From that momentary suprise the rest of the evening was as i expected, warm greeting, and effiecient waiting staff who tried very hard to overcome my lack of spoken French. The food was very good, honest and quite inventive which... More

Great find and the menu outshone any others we could find or research. Not for every day dining. Best French meal we have had for a long time
