Fish and seafood restaurants

7 excellent spots to savour seafood

The ocean is never very far away in Rennes. On the plates of local restaurants, Breton specialties, such as oysters, have a place of honour.

Chez Brume

Brume is a rather chic fish restaurant on a small pedestrian street that leads to Place de la Parcheminerie. Decorated like a refined bistro that is reminiscent of sparkling gold fish scales, the regularly updated menu offers a choice of seven seasonal fish with some shellfish dishes and a vegetarian alternative.

  • Chez Brume, 5 rue de la Parcheminerie, phone: +33 (0)2 23 30 45 43


Located close to the station, embark here immediately to try wild fish and crustaceans. The seafood at L’Embarcadère is prepared on a plancha grill and sourced from local catches, meaning that it changes with the seasons and tides. Among the specialties are generous parillada grilled dishes and the unmissable seafood platters. Feel the ocean spray as soon as you leave the train!

Le Iodé

This delightful little oyster bar on Place des Lices offers oyster specialties to enjoy either dining in or at home, both equally excellent. Enjoy local oysters from Cancale and Blainville-sur-Mer with a good glass of white wine, Muscadet or Sancerre, and expert recommendations from a family of oyster farmers. As a bonus point, on Saturday morning, the south-facing terrace has a clear view of the hustle and bustle at the fish market at the Marché des Lices.

Chez Nono

At Chez Nono, it’s a little like Christmas every day. In this oyster bar tucked in at the heart of La Criée Marché Central market, treat yourself to the famous Cancale n°3 oysters, as well as platters, skewers of Saint-Jacques scallops and prawns or tapas. There is no lack of ambiance in the market halls, especially on early weekend mornings when night owls meet early rising foodies for memorable feasts.

Les Pêcheurs

This is the place to be for fans of fish, seafood and shellfish. Just a couple of steps away from the station, the ambiance is palpable from the entrance – at the fish stall where you can choose from the fish that have been freshly caught depending on the deliveries or at the tank with the famous blue lobsters or the crabs. All you have to do is ask for what you would like and the chef and their team will take care of the rest. Seafood platters are also on the menu (available to take away). Inside, the patio that opens onto the outside in pleasant weather provides a lovely breath of fresh air.


Peska’s concept? A bistro serving interesting seafood for “whelk eaters, fans of cockles “en marinière”, those who love grilled mackerel and tuna tartare!” This is a pleasant bistro at the heart of the historic centre, just a few steps from the Couvent des Jacobins, on rue Saint-Malo, which is famous for its atmosphere both day and night.

La Taverne de la Marine

With its façade decorated with Odorico mosaics and the understated and pleasant ambiance of a Parisian bar, La Taverne de la Marine is an institution of Rennes gastronomy. Located at the edge of the Vilaine river, this establishment offers a journey across the finest seafood products: grilled fish, seafood platters, oysters, crustaceans and more – come taste the ocean!
