Arrived in St Malo after a long drive, booked in the hotel and straight out for food & drink. Ended up in the Le Lion D'or restaurant located just inside the city walls main entrance. We were welcomed by one of the waiters who was extremely helpful throughout. The food was great with a good selection and the desert just... More

I have visited St Malo for many years and of all the restaurants there that I have tried this is my favourite . Many of the staff have been there a long time and know their customers well . The service is first class ie swift and efficient . The food is always excellent and offers a range of meat... More

We had been looking forward to having mussels all day, we looked on the menu and there they were. We duly went in and were seated. The waiter came to take our order, but, no mussels. Apparently, they were too small at this time of year. At this point we really should have left and gone somewhere else (I subsequently... More

Had a very pleasant dinner here. The service is corteous and promt; the food is the tasty classics of french cusine. The great thing about this place is that it stays open until late at night, contrary to most other restaurants in the area which close at about 9pm.

Went for lunch and sadly the meal was not up to standards, had been there quite a few times in the past, but will not be returning. Both courses were disappointing, sadly my salad main course had so much oil I could not eat it all. We had an apertif each 2 starters and two salad main courses, a bottle... More

Great choice of food and drinks.Good service. Not the cheapest around but we ate and drank well and got through around €50 per head. It was a good night right down to the 'Digestifs'!

Nothing special about this restaurant even though it is filled normally. Ate oysters which made me sick the entire night. Tables are packed together in the porch area. Biggest problem were smokers who sat in the middle of the veranda and stunk up the entire restaurant. Foul smelling smoke destroyed the ambience of the meal. There should be a law... More
