Great food, great service, great atmosphere, reasonable price, English spoken so no worries for those who have little or no French, no more to add really...

“Great Crepes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

We stopped here for crepes in the middle of the day...very tasty. Friendly service. It was a perfect location for dining outside on a sunny day.

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

Other Trip advisor reviews suggested this would be great place to go and that it was not a tourist trap selling generic bistro food. Unfortunately I felt it fell into later camp. Much better places to eat in town.

“Good value, authentic French brasserie”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012 via mobile

After a walk through the walled city, you might be worried that it is all Crèperies snd nothing else. Visited the Lion D'or three times during a short stay in St Malo. Fir a snack, for breakfast n for dinner. All were good. Steak hachè (hamburger with no bun!) is highly recommended. Great value. Consistent service. Definitely worth a visit despite it's location on a strip of busy tourist restaurants (95% creperies).

“Chicken Heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

Go for the roast chicken. Not what your mother would cook, but how I would like mine to taste! Very cheap compared to some restaurants here, very child friendly - shame about the smoking, but hey, we are in France where they stick their fingers up to commonsense!
