Sitting under the all-enclosed awning at this place is a warm experience. The directors chairs are very comfortable. The décor is chaloureux & so is the attention from the excellent Waiters. Their speciality is fine quality meat. I had an excellent burger with Comte cheese & all the trimmings, worth the detour. Their carafe wines were very good including for... More

I had a great meal here.. atmosphere excellent - wine delicious and food even better. The same can't be said for my poor girlfriend who obviously got a dodgy mussel.. (or two) and couldn't stop vomiting all night... Make your own mind up on this one...!

I ordered the salmon and it was the best I've ever had. The food and drinks were just the best. The staff were very professional and efficient however not the friendliest fella. Food took a normal amount of time to receive :) 5/5 highly recommend

Went recently during busy time when many restaurants were shut for holidays. We only wanted a light meal so ordered something to share with starter and dessert. Clearly this was a mistake as the moderately priced wined we asked for became a very expensive recommendation. The price was never mentioned. Rude and dismissive response upon questioning. Avoid. Plenty of other... More

Because I'm an English tourist, not missed by the team at the Lion D'Or who when I was looking for a good wine at about 35 euros earlier this evening and said that they had just the thing....I trusted them and ended up questioning a wine bill of 85. The owner shrugged and I just felt foolish and paid up... More

We had a super meal at this restaurant, 2 chicken and chips, but the quality, and the attention to detail was first class. We could not fault the food, presentation nor the service. Thoroughly enjoyed lunch, (it was a typical wet November Sunday in St Malo). The restaurant was buzzing with locals and tourists and was warm and welcoming. An... More
