We had lunch at an outside table, enjoyed the salad so much that we decided to come back for dinner. We were not disappointed

The food was beautifully presented. I ordered the beef tartare (tartare de boeuf coupé au couteau, pommes allumettes, salade de mesclun et toast), which was 39 Euros and for dessert I had the café gourmand for 14 Euros. The tartare is raw and came with a raw egg yolk. I was a bit worried but I didn't get any food... More

I lived in Rennes for 4 years, and Le Cafe Des Bains, was one of my favourite spots. Naturally, on my recent trip down memory lane with my partner, I couldn't wait to show this place off. The menu is slightly less adventurous than I had known it. Gone is the "sweet and sour kangaroo" and the "shark steak", but... More

It seems that you are expecting an answer and I will not disappoint you ! I will make it short only because your post is anything but true and I think it’s a fake. Internet gives you the possibility of pouring out anonymously slanderous remarks in total impunity. Your never ending sickening talk describes situations that are as outrageous as improbable. Your comments would have been believable if they had met an echo amoungst similar reviews. But you've probably noticed that we get rather... More

London family, not French speaking, first time visit to lovely Rennes. Took a chance on this place with no prior information about Restaurants in Rennes: friendly and helpful waiter, good and attentive service, and lovely food for not much dough (excuse pun). I had melt-in-the-mouth Scallop risotto. Surrounded by what appeared to be affluent looking or well-to-do locals - they... More

I ate here two nights running , once when myself and my two colleagues were the only people in the restaurant, and once when it was packed. We enjoyed delicious food, friendly service and a relaxed atmosphere. On the first night we stayed at the table for over 3 hours and never once felt rushed. I reccommend the tune and... More

This is a modern like french restaurant. Not too expensive but with really good food. You can find special prices for lunch and dinner that include either an appetizer or dessert for less than 20 euros.

If you enjoy getting your starter while still enjoying your aperitif, getting your plates taken away as soon as you put your fork down, being given the bill once you have drained your coffee-cup... then this is the place to go. The service was so rushed that we only had time to drink half our bottle of wine. The quality... More

We just stumbled onto this little restaurant in the old part of town, and had an excellent lunch: fresh tartare fish dishes, foie gras, black piglet, grenaille potatoes, etc...with a nice bottle of wine, all of that for less than 50 euros. Everything was well prepared and presented. The staff was very friendly, the service quick, and the place had... More
