We ordered the Bretagne menu - two galettes and one crepe later were delighted and stuffed! Butter, camembert, andouille (not for the faint of heart), and salted caramel adorned the three dishes. The service was excellent.

My friend and I had excellent gallettes and crepes here. The staff was friendly enough to satisfy our additional ingredients and small changes that we asked. The price is quite uniform with the other creperies of the area and the cider choice is quite good. The decoration of the restaurant is colorful and the atmosphere is very friendly.

We ate here on our first night in France. The crepes were excellent. My wife and I each had different dishes. Mine was quite strong -- but I liked it. The wine was good as well. Good service! Glad we ate here!

....within the walled city of Saint Malo! We chose some delicious Breton food and drink - gallettes, bolee and kir followed by crepes. Couldn't fault the food and the service was great too - all very friendly. Would happily eat there again. Xxx

Arrived late but were welcomed none the less by a very nice waiter from Brazil. Food was very tasty and the price of a bottle of cider was I thought reasonable (€9) . If very hungry and not the lot of money, go for what they call "une complète " ( galette/butter /ham/cheese/egg) around €7. It's very nice and extremely... More

We were touring Brittany with Grand Circle Travel and they took us to Creperie Le Tournesol. How GCT finds the places to eat in that they do is amazing. Christopher the owner was friendly and saw to our special diet needs. The restaurant is lovely, the farmers cider awesome and the food was very good.

The crepes we had in Le Tournesol were just absolutely exceptional (and my great-grandmother from Brittany used to make amazing ones…) - we had the "sardine", the "boudin" and two "completes" for the galettes - just out of this World. the creperie uses ingredients from local places around St Malo and you can truly test the difference - in the...

Lovely place, friendly staff and popular. We had to have a crepe whilst in St. Malo and I'm glad we stopped here. The farmers cider was amazing and has left us searching Britain for Bretagne cider. My daughter and I had a delicious crepe ; probably the best we have ever had. Prices reasonable. Cards accepted. A1 !

In two weeks one quickly gets to know the difference between the tourist creperie and the one the local's go to. Le Tournesal is definitely the latter, but was very welcoming to us with a toddler and new born in tow. The crepes were just as you would hope. Utterly delicious. We were perfectly looked after on the two occasions... More
