We had 2 days in St Malo & ate here both nights. I had t Marmite St Jacques, superb. He had burger, the best he'd ever eaten. The 2nd night we walked the town to find another restaurant but decided to return to the tried & trusted. I had salt cod gratin - amazing. He had another burger! Brilliant. Desserts... 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

We had the €28 formula and it was good. The pate of the house was a meal in itself. The cod with dauphinoise potatoes was excellent. The only negative comment I would make is that vegetables are conspicuously absent and the same garnish of vine tomatoes, and dressed leaves with walnuts seems to be served with both starter and main....

My wife and I had a main, desert and coffee and it cost us 93 euros. We both had fillet steak and asked for it medium, they were blue, so we sent them back. when they were returned, they were rare. Didn't want to wait anymore so we ate them as they were. Very poor cut of beef, tough areas... More

Six of us had the €28 three course Menu Hector lunch in glorious sunshine with wonderful food. Our expectations were not that high as the food was paid for as part of a Brittany Ferries mini cruise deal but it was great. A choice of 3 or 4 at each course and between us we sampled the oysters, the pate... More

On the last night of our short break in St Malo we decided to eat in what was obviously a popular venue. Always open and always busy. Despite the fact that it was busy the service was prompt and attentive. There was only a short wait between courses and the food was everything you would expect from a French restaurant.... More

Superb - perfect location, excellent staff (who allow you to stutter through your pigeon French without patronising) and truly wonderful food. Steak tartare is an absolute must as this place specialises in their meat, but the burgers are equally good. Amazing setting in a beautiful city, truly excellent food. The staff even found some little hats to help customers who... More
