Rennes has a wide choice of excellent restaurants, but it's worth booking ahead at the smarter choices. Rues St-Malo and St-Georges are the city's two main 'eat streets'; the latter in particular specialises in crêperies.

Rennes' daily market Halles Centrales ( is at place Honoré Commeurec, and the large Saturday morning market fills the place des Lices. The tourist office has a list of other weekly markets.
