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.

On holiday with friends in Jersey and went to St Malo for a day trip, decided to have lunch at this lovely Restaurant, so glad we did! Enjoyed Moules, lovely brown bread washed down with a lovely glass of Muscadet! Great service and reasonable priced!

Nothing better than a table in the sun with a huge pot of steaming, sweet mussels, frites and mayonnaise with a great bottle of Petit Chablis. The service was great (attentive with smiles), the food great and the wine a great accompaniment. This was a great lunch and fantastic value for money.

100 billion out of 10 There are no actual words to describe how amazing the food is here! Every time I have a steak anywhere else it will be compared to this place. The steaks are honestly out of this world. Unbelievable. Outstanding. Phenomenal. Sublime. Etc etc. The current Missus had a salmon salad and she was blown away with... More

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

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
