Great view, great service

Our service was excellent. My husband and I could not read the french menu and they were very accomodating and spoke english and helped us order. We had a steak dinner and it was very good. We would go back and eat here again and the view outside is very enjoyable as well.

Came upon this restaurant while driving around Saint-Malo. Had an outside table with a great view of the water. Menu was in French but we were able to order based on our limited French and our server's ability to describe the menu. I had salmon and my wife had a salad. We both were pleased with our meals and our... More

We had fish soup followed by turbo and another local fish dish that sadly I cant recall. Both very nice. Service was excellent and the owner has excellent English.

Recommended by the owner of our B&B in St Malo. Could not fault it- from aperitif to final coffee it was flawless. Pointless trying to eulogise over every detail - just visit if you are ever in the area - you should not be disappointed though I guess everyone may have an 'off day' - it certainly wasn't on 28th...

We arrived late lunchtime and thought we might be too late. We found La Cale and were so glad we had. It was a lovely May day and we at a pavement table with views out to the tower. I had a fabulous steak followed by crème brulee which was wonderful. For 15 Euros this was my best value meal... More

This is a really quality restaurant with excellent food and friendly waiting staff. A definite must if you are staying on this side of St Malo - the 'menu' of £29 is great value. We loved it so much we went twice which is almost unheard of for us when we are on holiday.

Good food, good service, peaceful and pretty. Perfect place to get stuck in the rain and watch life past by in this sleepy hollow.

We walked here from the yacht marina. Sat outside at a neighbouring bar for a her before dining here. The fish soup was excellent, as was the sole meuniere (served on the bone). Phar Breton for pud was excellent. Friends had the moules for main course and enjoyed them. Reasonably priced wine. An enjoyable experience. I will go back. (the... More
