Seeking unforgettable meal in Brittany

Later this summer, my wife (whose parents are French) and I will be taking our 11-month- old son to Brittany to meet his French relatives. We'll be staying with family in St. Brieuc and eating well the whole while (homemade dishes; sausages from the market; plus, I'm sure, at least one visit to the local creperie; etc.). But we hope to leave the little guy with his grandparents for a night and hit the road in search of a knock-our-socks-off restaurant meal or two.

We're willing to travel an hour or more and will be staying overnight in whatever town we land in. I've read a bit about what appear to be the most hyped Brittany establishments, O. Roellinger and Jacques Thorel's restaurant at L'Auberge Bretonne, and I'd love to hear from anyone who's dined at either and cat attest to whether they're worth the splurge. I've also read about a place in Rennes, La Table d’Eugenie, that sounds intriguing. But what I'd really appreciate is suggestions for less-discovered places that perhaps outperform those higher-profile spots...
