Gastronomic Destinations: France-Bretagne (6): La Chope in Rennes City!

Service: Very friendly and attentive
Facilities & Equipment: Great cleanliness overall. Superb washroom. Entirely non-smoking.
Prices: Reasonable
Strong points: Very traditional Bretagne and France cuisines


Rennes, the capital of Bretagne, is a major city in France but it has preserved its original cachet, making it a major venue for businessmen and tourists alike.
It is replete with traditional restaurants and bistros it would take too much time to enumerate!


Founded in 1936, it is one still living most ancient bistros in the whole of the Bretagne Peninsula.
It is full any time of the day, any day of the week, and you definitely need to reserve!
WE liked it so much that we visited it twice during our three-day stay for dinner and lunch!
Just let me introduce what we had!


Of course it serves real Bretagne cider!


But don’t overlook the very reasonable wine list!


There some fantastic bakeries in Bretagne, and you can expect exquisite bread!


It is Bretagne, therefore the seafood is a must!
They serve one typical Bretagne version of a dish famous in Alsace: Choucroute de la Mer/Sea Choucroute!


A lighter and definitely more elegant choucroute than the pork meats version, served with a white butter sauce!


Although this particular dish was made famous in Belgium, it is also a must!




But Bretagne does also have great meats!
Steak tartare!


Interesting way of preparing potato fries!


Some tourists will feel at home with this stupendous open hamburger topped with foie gras!


The simple but so succulent matured cheese assortment served with fig jam is another must at La Chope!


If you must absolutely have a dessert go for the traditional ones!


Creme brulee!
