Four of us felt that our seafood dinner at Les Embruns was extraordinary. This restaurant was located across the street from our hotel (Ambassadeurs) and recommended by the hotel. Although we're somewhat wary of concierge recommendations, this one lived up to the hype.

The restaurant was a delight. We chose the mid-priced prix-fixe menu. I had a terrine to start, my husband started with oysters. Both were delicious. We both ordered scallops for the main course, which were quite good although, to our surprise, they were breaded and sautéed. I had pana cotta with fruit compote for desert, my husband had artisanal ice... More

Charming little restaurant, just off the beach. The fish was cooked perfectly. Large portions and great sides. This was a good value. and a very pleasant meal. The service could not have been better.

€106 for a delicious three course dinner for two, including aperitifs and wine is very good value when it included starters of soupe de poisson and a ceviche of scallops and crab. The mains were St Pierre (John Dory) of very generous proportions and pollack with vanilla scented orange. Well worth making a considerable diversion to try.

Celebrated a milestone birthday in Saint-Malo this year and selected Les Embruns for our special dinner. Chose lobster in a light butter and herb sauce and the live lobster was presented for my approval before being whisked away to the kitchen. Delicious! My spouse had sweet and delicate panko crusted scallops in an orange vanilla sauce. Prices were very reasonable... More

Was in here about a year ago and hence as we were in St Malo we wanted to dine here. Did not book but turned up at 7:00 and got a table. By 8:00 the place was full of French diners on a Tuesday evening. My wife had a crab starter and I had a "journey from land and sea"... More

We didn't have a reservation but had a nice table in the back. It was busy and that's due to the delicious sea food and attentive staff! In September it was a bit warm in the room but the food made up for it. Only time in France we were served an amuse bouche and it was a mouth watering... More

Our group of 6 visited this restaurant in June. It is located a short walk outside the walled city and a block in from the beach. The ambience, service, food, and price were excellent! Our prix fixe meal was 23 euros for plat, entree, and dessert. The chef sent an extra "pre entree" with our apertifs and a "final dessert"... More

We found Les Embruns as it was close to our hotel and were shocked (in a positive way) as to how nice it was both in regard to the place and the food. there are some Prix Fare options as well as À la carte. Wines were reasonably priced and service was paced just right. We both had seafood and... More
