My husband picked this cuz we wanted oysters. Everything was scrumptious. Perfect. I'm still dreaming of the creme brulee, and the salmon tartare was about as good as food gets.

We enjoyed a great meal here. The food was superb both starters, mains and desserts. The restaurant is contemporary in style. Food service was unrushed which was nice and staff were professional.

Simple inside but very good for seafood and fish. Try sole, or lobster, or cod. They are exellent! Very good wines choice and chocolate mousse for dessert will be a perfect finish. Locals visit this restaurant and it is not touristic one. Situated on a street, without ocean view but close to Le Grand Hotel.

We ate here during our stay in St Malo. It is away from the 'tourist trap' area and appears to be popular with local people. There are set menus to choose from or A La Carte. The choice was very good and the food excellent. Delicious desserts too. Our best meal in St Malo. Don't be put off by the... More

excellent food, menu appears pricey at first but the set meal is a real bargain (especially midweek, it's further discounted) -- not on the water, but better food than the restaurants with a water view that we did sample

Reservation is almost essential for this restaurant. It is very popular for its fresh seafood, especially lobster, (some of whom live in a little tank in the corner of the restaurant...) Staff were polite and welcoming. We were treated to a mackerel pate appetiser while we waited for our food - which was a nice touch as service is somewhat... More

My husband and I ventured out in the rain without a dinner reservation and had our hopes set on dining here. Good luck, we got the last deuce. The service is not terribly polished but good-hearted. We had grilled sole and the day's lobster special, both superb. We sat in the first room which had nicer lighting than the back.... More

This restaurant is close to some fine brasseries but a level higher. Seafood is the specialty but meat was great as well. Many dishes with oysters. There is also fresh lobster. The menu is a very good deal, as each course costs almost the same as the entire menu (22 euro).

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.
