We had dinner with colleagues in this restaurant, and it was a really good dinner, plenty of food, even extra dishes from the kitchen, and cheese, everything extremely good, and also superb service. Highly recommended!

They have a great chef, the food was delicious. I had merli fisb with spices and chorizo, very original combination. The restaurant has a great space with nice decoration.

Very popular on a Saturday evening. We'd booked and were welcomed and offered a choice of the few remaining tables not yet taken - they were soon filled as other reservations arrived. The menu choices, quality, quantity and presentation were all very, very good. The freshness really stood out for us, together with some excellent and really intense flavours -... More

A charming restaurant. Smart and welcoming without being formal and stuffy. Good value, with a 3-course lunch at €21. A good quality house Chardonnay. A mushroom tart starter was good (but why not make it 'properly' vegetarian i.e. without the meat jus and bacon?) and the red mullet on a bed of peppers and vegetables was okay. The apple clafoutis... More

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. While Jacques cooks simple, perfect dishes with the freshest vegetables you ever had, Anne and her staff will make sure you... More

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.
