Simple food well executed

Delightful area on the main square with music and animations, affordable and filling food. Portions are very generous, and the products are delicious, especially local seafood if it's in season.

I've been here a couple of times in the last year, on work away trips, so I didn't book it. It's okay, food nothing to write home about but perfectly edible. Downsides are that it on the side of the suqare which is in full sun so if it is a nice day you bake, no air circulation inside the... More

Neat local draught followed by huge bowl of mussels in onion and garlic. Primary seating is out doors with a view. Best restaurnt service in all of France. Totally... More

We ate here twice on a recent visit to St Malo. The food is exceptionally good - very large portions! Try any of their dessert crepes. Service was excellent. Location is great, just inside the walls of the Old City. Prices are reasonable. Highly recommended.

Got a table easily on a Sunday night. Shared some great modules which was more than enough. Both had entrecôte so which were tasty though a little fatty. It's a really buzzy restaurant in the square so you can enjoy the atmosphere. Staff very friendly. Although it's right in the tourist area, it is a good choice and not too... More

We ate at this restaurant as it was getting late and we were hungry. We expected a touristy place as we were tired and didn't want to walk very far. What a pleasant surprise. The food and service were outstanding. I would highly recommend eating there. My husband is still raving about the steak.

Our top choice in the very busy tourist town of Saint-Malo. We liked the food so much we went back on our second night in town. Scallop salad was fantastic. Salmon entree was excellent in flavor and presentation. The wonder is the staff manages to pull this off in a very busy, tourist dominated location. High quality food, nice presentation,... More

I have eaten here several times and the food and service has always been exceptional, perfectly situated within the walled city ideal when the sun shines to people watch and enjoy a leisurely lunch or dinner.

Generous portion and open til late, with friendly and helpful staff. Good alternative when everything else is closed but not only! On the top on that... the dishes are delicious.
