Good

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.

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.

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.

i was traveling on business and looking for a reasonably priced restaurant in the tourists area of the walled city of St. Malo. I took a chance on this place after looking at multiple reviews and was very pleased with my choice. I had one of their fixed menus (oysters, salt cod and cream broule). If I had to choose... More

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
