  • La Harpe Noire in Rennes is an elegant crêperie with a lovely terrace in the shade of half-timbered houses. Daring, original recipes.

    La Harpe Noire is a name reminiscent of the blé noir (buckwheat) produced in Brittany. With a name like that, there’s no doubt about it, we’re in good company here in Rennes, in the Place du Champ-Jacquet. The crêperie is in the centre and has the advantage of one of the finest terraces in town, in the shade of the statue of Leperdit. Or, if you prefer, you can try their top-quality crêpes and galettes (savoury buckwheat pancakes) inside, snug and warm in this little haven of stonework and wooden beams. But it's not in the antique style; it’s rather contemporary, elegant, not crowded with too many tables. The menu is on a slate and includes particularly fine specialities and unusual, daring combinations of produce. You can find smoked pollock, farm-fresh bacon and duck magret and foie gras. These two specialities from the south-west are here combined with onions, a salad and a few potatoes... not forgetting, of course, the buckwheat! Another to watch out for is the combination of prawns, pineapple and a scoop of coconut and curry ice-cream. Does it work? Try it and see!
