Great value, wonderful food, lovely views

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... read 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

Recently did a day trip to St Malo and had read some good reviews about this place and decided to try it. The staff were helpful and did help with menu translations. My daughter and I went for the cheaper lunchtime menu whilst my husband and son went for the dearer option. The starters were nice but not outstanding my... More

When we arrived we were vaguely pointed to a table, I asked if the restaurant owner if this was the table that she was referring to at which point she murmured something under her breath, I ignored this and went to seat at our table. From which point we were then served by the waitress which was much more friendly... More

We recently stayed in the Saint Servan part of Saint Malo and knowing the area and restaurant previously, we went to this place for dinner on 2 occasions. Overall both times the experinece was very good and we both chose from the set menu's (swapping courses over). The nine oysters were great. Very happy with this as a 'safe bet'... More

Just a little list of what happened to us in this restaurant; it's up to you to decide if that's a normal behaviour: 1. There was a sign outside, showing a special offer for an entrée and main plate for 15 euros, or 20 for the same plus dessert; the problem is that when you sit inside, this offer is... More

A slightly different range of dishes marks this place out from the many other good restaurants in Solidor. This was the only place I saw that had abalone on the menu. The manageress/waitress was friendly and helpful.
