Probably the best restaurant in downtown Rennes

If you want to taste the best French gastronomy in downtown Rennes, go see Jacques and Anne Faby. Le Cours des Lices is one of my very few "5-stars" restaurants where it's almost impossible to have a bad experience.

Everything was good here - the service, the knowledgeable staff, and the food was sublime. Quite simply, the tarte aux pommes I had was the best I've ever had! In Rennes this has to be a must go restaurant.

We visited Rennes during a business trip and ate at Le Cours des Lices on a Saturday evening. Friendly and attentive service, excellent food and an extensive wine list, this restaurant is not cheap, but if you are looking for a quality meal I would thoroughly recommend it.

le Cour des Lices is a well designed contemporary restaurant with very good food and service. The menu du jour is an excellent value. Highly recommended.

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... 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

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
