First time in St. Malo and really spoilt for choice of attractive restaurants. Busy atmosphere and great people watching spot. Very efficient staff creating friendly buzz and the rare steak couldn’t have been better. Sadly no room for a second course.

So my boyfriend and I arrived in St Malo about 1pm but we weren't that hungry thus we decided to eat after walking around and taking in the sites. Little did we know restaurants actually close after a certain time as in the kitchen actually closes and opens up way later during dinner, however there are few restaurants that open... More

We ate here two years ago when we last visited Saint Malo; this July we returned and ate here twice as it was still so good. Service is speedy, the staff are friendly, and the food is always hot and extremely well presented. It may be located in the more tourist orientated side of Intra Muros, but the prices are... More

Ok, I realize reviews are a bit mixed for this saint malo restaurant but I must say we had a great meal. Four for dinner on a Saturday night. Two teen agers and two adults. The mussels a la creme were the best we had on our week long trip through the region. We tried mussels at several other places... More

We returned to this resturant in the old town of st. Malo after a few years break. It has changed from the lively, good value place we remembered to a tourist rip off! The set menu was 24 € for 2 courses and the main course of supposedly a half chicken in gravy was smaller than many chicken quarters I've... More

We choose this restaurant based on TripAdvisor review. We had a very good dinner! We ordered an entree of camembert cheese, bottle of wine, and two mains. The courses were big to satisfy us and we skipped desert. All in all we played 70 eur for good quality food. Could be a little cheaper, but you are in the main... More

I've visited this restaurant two times with my (then) wife, but the last time kinda ruined it. We looked around for a while and decided on the Maison Hector, it looked nice and the menu seemed interesting. On our first visit we both ordered the suckling pig (pictured) and it was stupidly good, the food was simply amazing. Our second... More
