We had a great late lunch here the day we arrived in St. Malo. We both had the moules meuniere and cold beers. So good! The portion size is enormous. I think I managed to eat about half of the mussels. They were perfectly cooked. The waiters here were some of the friendliest on our three week France trip. We... More

Positioned next to the main gate for the Intra-Muros (inside walls of Saint Malo) , we took a table out in the sunshine (made a big difference from English dampness) - where we were quickly offered a drink menu. We opted for cocktails - it was the first lunch of our holiday...and then decided to prolong our sunny experience with... More

Located by a main entrance into the city. Very professional waiters. We only had drinks but it was still just perfect to sit there watching the world go by.

Really liked it here. So close to 5* but had to knock it down as my steak wasn't great. Asked for it medium and it came beyond well done. Shame as they set themselves up to be a steakhouse. However, everything else was excellent. Service, starters, wine and atmosphere were all great. Would definitely recommend trying here

We visited the restaurant with great expectations. Service is very good and efficient although a little hurried. No sooner have you finished your meal and your plate had gone, and your glass. I don't mind them doing that before everyone has finished but it was a bit extreme. Waiter was very good, spoke excellent english and remembered the orders correctly.... More

We visited on a Thursday in July. The town was reasonably busy & the restaurant was quite busy too. The food was of excellent quality & service with a smile is always welcome. I had a hot chicken salad. Very nice & too big for me to eat it all. Other half had chicken burger & chips. He enjoyed his... More

Good atmosphere, friendly service and great food. Set the standard by which other restaurants were measured. Perfectly cooked steak. A great place to eat in a great city to visit.

We decided to go to one of the popular cafes, to sit outside and enjoy the local shellfish. This is a very nice location but unfortunately, even though the special was advertised as mussels, they had none. They did have oysters and I ordered a plate. They were nicely presented, with the shells placed back on top and a bed... More

Our family ate dinner twice at Le Lion D'Or. It serves very good menu of various cuisine from the local seafood specialities to delicious roast chicken for our less adventurous son's palette. It is located very close to the Oceania Saint Malo hotel where we stayed.
