Early dinner

Lovely restaurant and ambience. Enjoyed the food and the variety on the menu. The staff probably can make the experience even better by making sure that the better tables are offered in the restaurant , especially when most of the tables were free

This place may look a bit touristic but it has really good quality food. I have been there three times in three years now and the quality is consistent every time.

Very accommodating, and friendly service, Superb steaks and the best dessert I have ever eaten (Crème Brulee flambéed in Grand Marnier). It's a little tight for room, but worth it if you can squeeze in!

I passed this restaurant just a few hours after arriving and doing the wall tour of St Malo. It is clearly smart and knows what it is about. The waiters were very friendly and welcoming and looked great. The wines and aperitifs were delicious and they allowed me to take all the time to read a book and enjoy the... More

We knew the prices would be more than in other parts of the city as it is in the heart of the 'intra-muros' but we were happy to go on our first night to soak up the atmosphere and we had heard good things about this restaurant.

Called in St Malo whilst waiting to collect parents from a flight into Dinard. Have visited St Malo many times and at various times of the year. It is always a busy place with lots of tourists.

No trip to St Malo is complete without at least one trip to this very popular restaurant. The food is fantastic, the service is spot on and it has a special atmosphere. It is excellent on all levels.

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.
