We had our first meal in St Malo at this restaurant as it was recommended by the hotel. It was very busy for a Sunday lunch but the menu had a large range of dishes and our lunch was delicious. Excellent service and pleasant ambiance.

Our favourite place to eat in St Malo was closed (Bistrot Rocher) so we tried here. We had the 23 euro formule menu and the food was very good. Fish soup, a green lentil and poached egg salad, Salmon with butternut squash and cod with black spaghertti and veg were all well-prepared and tasty. Service was pleasant but not timely... More

This restaurant was highly recommended by a friend who unfortunately needs re-education when it comes to dining. I had the moules frites, where the frites were crumbs of the rock solid consistency you get from the bottom of the deep fat fryer. The mussels were actually quite good but most of the shells were empty which left me feeling rather... More

Stopped for breakfast after disembarking from ferry. Had one crepe and one roll plus coffee. €20+ just not worth it. Better to find a back street place.

Ate here on our only night in Saint-Malo. Best moules frites I've ever had, and the oysters were really fresh. Live music some nights as well which was great.

Had early breakfast upon arrival off the ferry, evening meal on our second day, (gorgeous piece of cod), and drinks and crepes before heading to the ferry home. Great service, very friendly.

This place was open late, which we appreciated since we had just gotten in. It was welcoming and they had a nice patio. A lot of safe stuff on the menu and lots of seafood, which is to be expected. Nothing really out of this world. My husband's steak was overcooked, not a great cut, and not of high quality,... More

The place is not really big and if you are not fine in sitting 30cms away from another table than you should not go there. The service is very good. Everyone is extremely professional and polite. The dinner started with some complementary butter and bread. We were in 6 and we ordered a starter and a main course each, plus... More
