We had a table by a window in on the first floor. Bright, spacious and comfortable. I noted downstairs was less so. A relatively simple menu but it included rognons de veau cooked whole. That is one of my all-time favourite dishes and it was prepared and presented to perfection. My starter was nicely prepared and presented pied de porc... More

I ate at ten different restaurants during my time in Rennes, and this meal was the most average. It wasn't terrible, it wasn't particularly good, it was just food. The service was slow, and it seemed as though they kept forgetting that we were there. They ran out of a number of things on the menu so we actually had... More

Interesting place. A busy and bubbling restaurant turning out reliable, fairly simple cuisine. It prides itself on food of good provenance and everything is cooked simply and well. Odd spaces on two floors. Good food but the whole experience was not particularly exciting.

That's Leon le Cochon. I love that there are enlarged photos of the team that is responsible for the different parts of the... More

This restaurant was recommended by our B & B. The service was peccable and the food was amazing. My husband and I shared the four gras to start and it was delicious! Then I had ris de veau - undoubtedly the best I've ever had. If you love sweetbreads, you must not miss this. My husband loved his veal liver... More

We had dinner last night, after touring Normandy and Brittany for the last few weeks. We both agreed it was the finest dinning experience this trip. My wife had sweetbreads, I had whole veal liver beautifully seared. Superbly cooked and presented. Very friendly staff, don't miss this restaurant!

I wanted to leave a review for the excellent food and service we received at lunchtime today. This is a large and busy restaurant and they were extremely helpful, kind and efficient. We are only in Rennes for one night but would come here again and recommend it to others.

This is a stylish restaurant with friendly staff. The menu was more varied than the name of the restaurant suggests - not just pork, albeit that was their speciality. The "bavette de cochon Iberique" was particularly tasty. Also had an extensive wine list, with good value options. I would definitely go back if I was in Rennes again.
