This restaurant was so good that my husband and I ate here twice during our four night stay in St. Malo!! The food was outstanding and the atmosphere is wonderfully relaxed and friendly. Be sure not to miss the "tiramisu" dessert. It isn't really tiramisu, it's a unique, delicious concoction--a rich, creamy white custard on an unbelievably scrumptious caramel pudding,... More

We were first made aware of this wonderful small restaurant by the manager of the Hotel Elisabeth. Since then we have made a point of eating here every time we visit the city. Excellent food and great value for money. Well away from the main tourist-strip of creperies and moules-frite, tucked inside the western walls - descend from the ramparts... More

It's a lovely warm little restaurant serves very fine French dishes. Just went for lunch and tasted our best French food here in our 3days trip in St Malo. We both ordered the 3 course set lunch with 2 choices of main dish, so my wife have the deep fried chicken stick with potato mash and I have the fish.... More

We ate dinner here tonight. I found the restaurant on Trip Advisor and my entire group was thrilled with the choice. It is small and off the beaten path. The waiter was so helpful. He didn't speak much english but we worked everything out and the food was delicious. I also have a food allergy and they were so accomadating.... More

We were looking for somewhere simple but classically French for a Sunday evening and many restaurants are closed but we found Bouche en Folie tucked away in the old town. Very small, with a limited but good range of courses and wine list with a range of wines by the glass. The mine host / waiter worked wonders to keep... More

We walked in by chance. We chose from the menu 3 courses for 29 euros. I haven't eaten this well in a long time. Service was quick and friendly. I highly recommend this restaurant, you'll get your money's worth.

We had no intention of going there, nor heard about it. Off-season, it can be tricky to find a place open in St Malo. So, we decided to enter Bouches en Folie as the menu looked interesting and du marché. Nous avons eu du nez ! A tiny restaurant with great atmosphere and an ever-changing menu, Bouche en Folie truly... More

One of the best restaurants I have seen in France. Small but cozy, food was exceptional! I would definitly came back and recomand to all that want a good meal in St. Malot. Words are not enough so I will let the picture speak.

For non tourist, non mass produced authentic French food, eat here. Our lunch party had crab, scallops, beef, duck and a variety of desserts. Everything was memorable and magnificent.

Small, about ten tables and just in from western town walls, this restaurant could at first glance be mistaken for a 1950's French cafe with its brown paintwork. Nothing retro about the food though - one of us had pork cheek braised to the point of delicious collapse the other beef with salted crust and a raisin chutney. Very decent... More
