I visited here with a friend in May 2016. The restuarant is clean and well decorated throughout. The staff were attentive and very helpful. The food and wine were delicious.

Have been there twice. Seafood is great, if you are fancy to try raw oysters this place is for you. Moreover, my experience with a meat in France is quite not good. Usually meat is big disappointment, but stake in this restaurant was quite good! Fatty, but fresh and tasty. Desert was also nice. Can recommend!

We ordered a set menu for Eu 31-50 and received a delicious 3 course meal with lots of options for the 3 courses The waiters were a little slow and while they had limited english and we had limited french they produced menus in english so all went nicely

It's a lovely place with banquettes in the typic spirit of brasseries parisiennes. The food is fine and service quick and discret. It's a Good place for business place

Went there few years ago and the place is still one of my favourite in Rennes, very professional. It is a very traditional luxury french brasserie. The decor has benn changed and it is warmer and more modern. Staffs and service were excellent. Food is very good, traditional and very fresh, raisonable price too. The only recommendation would be to... More

The waiters are unattentive and not helpful. They don't serve us in good manners. The foods aren't as good as the other people commented in here. Oyster are small and not fresh. Beef isn't tender. The price isn't right for the food. I've tried some other restaurants that are much better than them in Rennes. I won't go there again!

Meals were about €50 including several drinks and good quality. I would defiantly visit again. With the added bonus of staff who spoke good English to compliment my school boy french.

A good address downtown. Good food, nice restaurant, prices are good for lunchtime. A bit expensive in the evenings, but it is worth it

3 generations of our family ate in this restaurant, after reading the reviews on Tripadvisor. We spent a most enjoyable evening at "Le Galopin". The service was excellent, along with the food and wine. Despite most of our party only speaking English, we were well looked after by all the staff and enjoyed some good banter and humour. We all...

Our La Galopin Rennes dining experience was memorable. We booked our lunch for 3 persons at 12 noon and they ushered us to the best table in the restaurant, a cozy booth facing the front of the window. The Oysters were fresh and succulent and the veal liver steak was sublime and cooked to perfection. We particularlly enjoyed their traditional... More
