A super location at the heart of St Malo - a lovely place to sit and have a coffee or wine and watch the world go by, I left my husband here whilst I hit the shops! Not the cheapest for drinks or food in town but good value for the location etc. Really nice tasty food and attentive, friendly... More

Most of the dinner restaurants open around 1900 hours but after traveling all day, we were tired and hungry for dinner at 6. The restaurant was clean, the wait staff was friendly, helpful and patient, and the food was quite good for a reasonable price. The menu was in French and English, which was very helpful.

The restaurant is located in the old town of St. Malo in Intra Muros on a very nice location. Beside a good location they offer very good french food and service. The staff speaks english. I had a very good dinner, very well presented and with nice service. The only dissapointment was the french fries. It looked and tasted like... More

Restaurant was recommended by our hotel and it didn't disappoint. It was very busy the night we went where restaurants in town were empty. The service is excellent with the menus in English which the staff also speak. The food was some of the best I have had on my trip and couldn't be faulted. I will come here again... More

A fine bright day in late December, mid-week in that gap between Chistmas Day and New Year. Saint Malo was busy with families out for the day and we were glad to have reserved our table in advance. We had plenty of time before catching our train but the service would have been brisk if we'd wanted it to be.... More

This is a good place to come for simple, French brasserie food: steak frites, big salads, steak tartare, roast chicken and, because you're in St Malo, mussels and oysters. Service is brisk and professional. Ingredients are quality, including the famous Bordier butter. Come here if you aren't sure what you want to eat or if you're with people who all... More

A genuine welcome was extended to me as a wheelchair user. Whilst there was a bit of a bump to get in, help from one of the staff made this easy.The food was fantastic. A look at the menu left me spoilt for choice, looking at everything that came out of the kitchen there was no wrong choice. Highly recommended.

Well located, this restaurant offers a "terrasse" offering a nice view of Old st Malo, but what mostly pleased me was the service: fast, courteous, everybody smiling and joking, wearing a moustache for Movember, and of course great meal ( we had the famous mussels and french fries combo)...

Had seen people eating in here and it looked busy. Food was excellent ( V.large bowl of moules, frites and a beer =19 euros each.

This restaurant is right by the main gate into St Malo. But don't walk past it to look for a little restaurant in a back street because this one is superb! I had lunch there before I went to catch the ferry home. I'd decided upon some sort of fish and half a bottle of wine but eventually was also... More
