Rennes is the capital of fine bistro dining: bistros serving up high-end food for you to tuck into at the bar or gazing out over an open kitchen. You can sample this approach to food for yourself at renowned bistros like l’Arsouille, Bercail, le Globe, les Darons, le Café du Port or le Tire-bouchon. Here, wine and food pairings are the order of the day, with surprising or little-known grape varieties, natural or organic wines given pride of place. Rennes’ inimitable bistro-dining style focuses on fresh, seasonal market produce with the emphasis on short circuits. Step into one of Rennes’ brasseries for a cup of coffee and a slice of cake any time of the day or night. Iconic classics like La Chope, the emblematic Léon le Cochon, l’Amiral or la Taverne de la Marine are good places to stop in and soak up the atmosphere whilst tucking into lunch or dinner.
