Absolute Delight

What a delightful find! A tiny place of just under 40 covers, run by a charming waiter and the owner-chef, offering unpretentious, delightfully fresh food at an excellent price (approx €30 for 3 courses). Beautifully fresh pollack tartare, followed by perfectly cooked pan-fried John Dory fillets on... read more

We went here following the many good reviews on tripadvisor, but left disappointed. The food wasn't really original and flavours were rather unbalanced. The pumpkin cream soup lacked salt/flavour whereas the beef was too salty and had Brussels sprouts and potatoes that were raw inside. Food wasn't bad, but in all we all felt it was a below average meal.... More

I can only confirm what other five-star reviewers have already said. The restaurant is wonderful in every way, but be sure to book a table, especially for dinner, because you will not be able to just walk in. We had dinner one night and before finishing dessert reserved a table for lunch the next day. Both visits were superb.

I booked this restaurant before we arrived in France. I got my friend to leave a message and then the owner (?) rang me back. He patiently and helpfully took my reservation even though my French is almost non-existent. When we eventually arrived in St Malo, we were a little early and so spent 20 minutes on the beach just...

Really deserves the highest ranking. Starter, main course as well as dessert were excellent. Only seats 24 people during one evening, so best to book in advance. Friendly and attentive service. Highly recommended.

We've been traveling for a few weeks in Paris and Sancere and this meal at Bouche en Folie was the best we've had in France. Everything was amazing!

We went to dine in this restaurant based on the reviews we read and we were not disappointed at all. We had a three course meal and we enjoyed everything we had. The best of which was the Tiramisu. It was the best tiramisu I have ever tasted in my life. I believe if you come to visit Saint-Malo, this... More

4 of us were here yesterday and had a flawless meal with wonderful service from Frederick. He served a full restaurant on his own with friendly ease. The food was just delicious. Every dish superb. Can't recommend it has highly enough. Would give it 6 stars if I could!
