“Converted to liking crepes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2012

Not my favourite food, but this place showed me how a crepe can be a real meal. The 'Gallette complete - Sarrassin', with a pichet of local Rance cidre drunk from a clay cup, convinced me that eating in a creperie can be a salutory experience. BRAVO les Bretonnes!

Though busy even in low season, the efficient and friendly staff kept everyone well served so we stayed for a crepe 'folette' as dessert which was not a mistake. Not my everyday choice for eating but this place hit the spot, aided by its great setting at Solidor Bay outside of St Malo. Good for people-watching too!

“Great gallette, wonderful crepes- the best we had in France!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2011

Our B&B owner recommende La Caraque as the best creperie in the St Malo area and indeed we were not disappointed. It is situated in a lovely cove near the Tour Solidor, looking across the bay, where the sunset adds to the delightful little terrace. It is a no-frills place, mostly frequented by the locals. The Galletes are generous, best taken with a caraf of local cider, and the crepes are a dream. I recommend the local specialty of crepe with caramel and salty butter ( Crepe Salidoux).
