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.

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

Thank Robyn T
