Excellent food, superb service, very attentive you will not be disappointed. Do book, during the evening we visited people arrived and queued for a table not something you see very often. Possible one of the best meals of my life.

visited last month with a friend, owner is very funny and the food quality is excellent. I took sea food starter, Oysters, and they were excellent. the main dish was a sea food one as well and it was delicious. I'd definitely go there again on my next visit to Rennes ..

Visiting Rennes with work colleagues. Chose Le Galopin based on reviews. Thank you fellow reviewers for directing me to a gem of a restaurant. Warm welcome, friendly staff, wide choice of food and wine. I had the oysters to start with a delicious Sancerre, then lamb as mains. A crime brûlée finished the meal. A glorious Bordeaux recommended by the... More

This is a great address, with excellent consistent food. The only problem is its popularity! Think about calling Bruno to reserve!

Finding ourselves in Rennes for a day and night we turned to Trip Advisor for restaurant suggestions. Le Galopin was just down the street so we decided to give it a try. We were not disappointed! We tried true French cuisine without knowing exactly what we were ordering and had no complaints! Loved the experience!!

Chose this on basis of combination of fact that this is well reviewed in Trip Advisor and Michelin. From the initial call to book at table (for a Monday evening) to the meal itself, the service was excellent, with a welcoming smile from the Maitre D as we arrived. Superb food, starting with pata negra ham, poached egg, asparagus with... More

What a great place! Excellent server that spoke very good English which was appreciated even though I can read French very well. There are lots of seafood choices on the menu, but I am always just a little skittish about ordering seafood when I am traveling for business as I can't risk illness. After having my meal which was excellent... More

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.
