So quaint!

We went there for lunch and had the lunch menu. The food was great, the service prompt and attentive. It is located in a very old house but is very cute. If you are in the area of the Vieux Port, I would highly recommend it.

We had blood sausage and Cassoulet maison. They are so delicious. I'm picky but couldn't stop complimenting it. Small but well designed interior gives a cozy home sense.

Attentive laid back service, enjoyed all aspects of dinner here. French onion soup, steak frites and salad, pesto and sun dried tomato penne and duck confite were all excellent and a delicious cream of pea and bacon soup were enjoyed by all in our party. We ordered a bottle of red, white and an Engish bitter ale. It is a... More

This was a great dinner. I was alone and the staff made me feel at home. Wonderful atmosphere, very friendly and helpful (I don't speak French!). Food was great and price was just right.

Cafe St.-Malo is a great option for a break from antique and tourist shops on Rue St-Paul. The space is quaint, yet warm and lively. Here are a few points... 1. They have a more reasonably priced lunch menu that is not always posted outside. For $18.99 I had a steak and frites with a carrot soup appetizer (delicious) and... More

We had dinner here on a Sunday evening and the place was packed. I suspect most of the clientele were, like us,tourists, but that didn't detract from the quality of the food and friendly service.

Wonderfully cozy French bistro run by a husband and wife who immediately make you feel welcomed and comfortable. The small size, beamed ceiling and artwork created a delightful atmosphere to offset the frigid walk to get there from our hotel. My husband and I shared the fantastic melted goat cheese salad as an appetizer which was wise as it could... More

Nothing fancy about this place, just good food, pleasant hosts and a very friendly atmosphere. We at here first in 2013 and decided to come back in this visit. Still the same, still enjoyable and I hope it will stay the same for our next visit.

Great ambiance, good service. Soups were good, but main dishes were bland, crying for better seasoning.
