La Cale was recommended by our hotel, if you don't speak French don't eat there. We have never been treated so badly in a restaurant and we have traveled all over the world. As soon as we asked if they could help us with the menu they had a terrible attitude. We managed to order one starter and two main... More

First evening of a sailing trip back to Britain. A short walk from the harbour side of St Malo took us to the front here, overlooking the Rance and the Tidal Barrier. Lovely location. The staff here were very tolerant of our English and we had a cheery time. The seafood soup was, by the mighty standards of us two... More

We were recommended this place by the hotel we were staying in, who made the reservation for us. It overlooks the bay in Solidor (west of the ferry terminal), a lovely spot. We had three course set menu which was good value. Wine list had a good selection and was not over-priced. Service was friendly if a little slow at... More

Good spot to eat in overlooking Solidor tower and Bay. The three course lunch was good value but one of our party had a seafood salad for 19 euros. Well there two small langoustines, a small scrap of lobster and little else, hardly any salad. We should have complained but did not. Wine was a fair price but 4 lagers... More

Visited La Cale on the recommendation of a friend as we normally eat in St Malo itself. This is a hidden gem away from the hustle and bustle but with plenty to offer. Great set menus-very reasonably priced-and a wonderful selection of seafood. I had sole meuniere for my main course which was fabulous! Good wine list too. Service was... More

We decided to dine at the other part of Saint Malo, not the touristic chaos, but something locals would go to. Moreover that most of touristic restaurants in Saint Malo are half creperie's, the other half overcrowded. It turned out to be quite a challenge at 6pm, as all restaurants open at 7pm, and also the non-touristic part of Saint... More

We had a set meals and chose gigot d'agneau 7 heures - it was sensational - one of the best dishes I have eaten in France. Goat's cheese starter also excellent. The carmelised tarte tatin to finish was also fabulous and my husband's poire belle helene was great. The staff were very pleasant so altogether a great meal The next... More
