It’s a fairly sparsely decorated restaurant and could maybe do with a bit more character, but it’s a pretty good place for an student abroad looking for some home comforts.
But now for the main event: the food!
There’s nothing better than seriously crispy, light batter over really good fish. And boy, did this hit the spot. The chips were seriously fresh and generally a bit of a winner, but what I really loved was the fishy bites!
One of my favourite things about this place was that they served the dish on “newspaper”, it makes such a nice touch and really gave the place a bit of British feel.
It’s really handily located for university, which was great, and perfect for that in between lecture break.
After a fairly heavy lunch we took the time to have a wander round the city in the sunshine and enjoy the start of spring.
I wanted to pick up a birthday present for a friend, and there was one thing that sprung to mind: macaroons! When in France and all..!
Just look at these beauties! It’s a serious struggle not to eat these all day every day!
Finally, not quite ready to go back to work, we decided to stop for a quick café au lait in the sunshine before heading back to the books.
Really good coffee is one of my favourite things about France; it’s always good quality and you can pour the milk in yourself so that you get the exact quantities that you want.
All in all, a pretty great lunch time break – if a little longer than was expected! To be honest, if I was going to go back and get fish and chips in Rennes, I’d go back to Original Fish and Chips; there’s something really nice about being able to choose your own fish and even pick your drink straight from the Smeg fridge. I also preferred the decor a lot more.
Fish and Chips, macaroons and coffee – can you beat that for a lunch time break?!
