The four of us really enjoyed the dinner. Been here before and find the owner, food and atmosphere truly Quebec at its finest. Venison ravioli was outstanding. Don't miss this place, even for soup on a cold day for lunch.

We'd been to the market and happened to wander past this place whilst looking for somewhere for lunch. Menu looked exciting! A lovely litte French themed restaruant. I had the veal's brain for my main- delicious. All the food and drinsk were delicious and this was our most favourite restaurant of our trip.

We had dinner at Cafe St Malo on New Year's Day. There is a private dining space upstairs and downstairs (street level) is small and intimate. The French cafe/restaurant is filled with trinkets and objet d'arts which seem to occupy every shelf, corner and fitting. Service was warm and welcoming, homely and relaxed. Honest staples like rich and filling lamb... More

This little two story restaurant with a cozy fireplace was a great stop. The raviolis were very tasty as was the French onion soup and rabbit.

Walking into Cafe St. Malo is just like walking into a bistro in Paris. The smells, the sounds, the atmosphere is absolutely Parisian. We have been here several times before and it is always on the list while in QC. This trip it was for lunch and the Cafe delivered. My wife had the mussels and I the steak frites... More

Cold snowy night, small and cozy restaurant, two thumbs up. We had a bottle of the house red - not bad Spanish wine but if I went again I'd buy up for a French private import from list. Moule frites were both fitting and well done. Mussels were light and tasty and fries better than typical. Couple of salads. My... More

I am not joking when I say that it was nearly two hours from the time we arrived until the time we received our meals. I am also not joking when I say that a man at the table next to us laid down and took a nap on the bench while he was waiting for his food (which came... More

I came here in search of French onion soup and found a great soup. My family and I had a friendly waitress who helped us order a variety of foods we wanted to try. All great. The atmosphere was cozy and warm. Quaint decor

Let me tell you you about the negatives because there isn't much else! Service was slow and with attitude. The food takes forever to come. It shouldn't take 45 minutes to put together a salad and serve it. No one ever inquired how are food was and it took forever to get the check. Blood sausage was full of globs... More

Quaint bistro that is clearly favoured by the local crowd. We had a fantastic lunch and will likely return before the end of our visit.
