This is a small, unpretentious restaurant tucked away in the centre of the city serving imaginative, 1st rate cuisine. The chef has a masterly sense of combining unusual ingredients in an individual style that is both surprising and totally satisfying. A gastronomic treat in an informal environment. Small menu on a blackboard and every mouthful delicious.

Took some friends from Rennes to dinner here last night. Nice quiet atmosphere. Very reasonable price and outstanding main course and dessert. Service was also quite good.

I absolutely recommend this place! I have been few times already in Rennes and each time I visit this restaurant for a bit of exquisite, delicious food. This is art on the plate what makes food even more enjoyable. The sevice is outstanding and the atmosphere is really relaxing and natural.

Small, full, room with low ceiling, but mercifully not too loud (likely because all the other diners were French, not American.) Very good, creative food and reasonably priced wine list. We were very satisfied.

Ate here one evening while in Rennes. When we arrived it was very quiet. The dining room is small but charming. The food was excellent, not huge portions but very tasty. By the time we left the restaurant had filled up and had a very cheerful atmosphere. Would certainly go back if in Rennes again.

The menu isn't huge but the quality of the food certainly is at Les Carmes. I woud have no hesitation in recommending as a venue for business dinner with customers. The restaurant also gave us more private area of the restaurant which allowed for a good evening with customers. Food highlights: St Jacques, Supreme of Pigeon and the deserts were... More

The restaurant itself was spotless clean and nicely decorated, giving relaxing ambience to... More
