When arriving in France at Saint-Malo on the ferry, take the trouble to do 2 things, before heading away from the port: 1. Visit inside the city walls, to see how charmingly the city has been restored following its destruction by Allied bombers in WWII 2. Drive out of the centre for 5 minutes to sample some fabulous fresh pasta... More

We are a couple of vegetarians, one doesn't eat dairy, and so a little challenging for a restaurant Not for this one though, we managed to convey our difficult preferences in our dreadful French, and had one of the best meals ever! The lovely couple that own the restaurant took so much trouble to sort us out, lots of laughs... More

This place was a real find. Travelling with my vegetarian girlfriend in France can make for some tricky dinner time decisions. We found this place recommended as vegetarian friendly though and we decided to give it a try. It was perfect. Run by a husband and wife couple the restaurant has a very homely air. We were very well looked... More

We were staying in the Mercure St. Malo Front de Mer about a half mile from this restaurant and my wife developed a craving for Italian food. I don't remember how we found it. Might have been a recommendation from the hotel desk. We were not disappointed. As others have pointed out, this is a mom and pop place. It... More

This small mom and pop restaurant was recommended by our tour director on our cruise extenstion. We called on a Sunday night from our hotel to see if they were open...no answer on two calls, on third call. "Momma" answered and advised they were closed but she would open for us (two couples) if we could wait 30 minutes! We... More

Visited on the strength of the the reviews here and was expecting great things. Unfortunately, our experience was a bit mixed. OK it was a Monday evening and we were one of only two couples in, so unsurprisingly there was no atmosphere. But the host didn't do much to make us feel welcome. My dining partner had caprese which came... More
