Description: Owner/chef David Etcheverry (formerly of Les Agapes in La Meziere) is joined at Le Saison restaurant in Saint-Gregoire, just north of Rennes, by wife Christine. Perfectly at home together, the pair have created something special ��� a modern French restaurant blessed with integrity and a big heart. It���s in a perfect central spot overlooking a park - a fact not missed in the design of Le Saison���s airy dining room. The contemporary, rather refined space has a tempting terrace, magnificent on a summer���s day. Basque-born David Etcheverry explores the seasonal culinary traditions of his adopted country with an infectious enthusiasm. The spirit-lifting smells, joyful tastes and loving presentation of his cooking awaken the gourmand���s soul in every Le Saison diner.

We spent one night here in a stunning room and had the best meal of our trip to Brittany. We visited two star Michelin restaurants but nothing compared to Le Saison. The welcoming me was warm and friendly and breakfast the next morning continued the trea

We went on the 78€ menu, the amuse bouche was a soft boiled egg removed from its shell with creamed potatoes put into the bottom of the shell with the yoke of the egg then returned with a small amount of the potatoe with some white truffle on top absolutely divine.

The domeur of crab meat with a coconut cream over it with a citrus? Dressing and tiny fresh green herbs was brilliant. This was followed by scallops on bed of very finely chopped vegetables with a lightly spiced dressing they were excellent!

The sea bass fillet with a champagne foam was cooked to perfection.
Next came the cheese chariot followed by slices of poached pear on a type biscuit base set in a light jelly encircled by a crisp sweat ribbon.

The service was faultless, the only observation would be having visited many Michelin starred restaurants in last four months we thought the wine prices to be on the high side compared with other similar establishments.

While being a bit off the beaten track in a small village, this place is just marvelous. Very stylish design meets perfect service and a creative kitchen. We went for the menu for 75 Euros that started with very interesting little dishes, and culminated in a perfect turbot. The sommelier suggested very fine wines by the glass as well. We paid 210 Euros for two people, exceptional value for the food and surroundings offered.

Superb combination of a modern restaurant in a tradtional environment. Food was excellent and well presented, wine list covered all tastes , service first class - all delivered at an affordable price. Move this restaurant to a big city and it would more than hold its own if the prices were double.
