Ate dinner here with friends on trip to St malo, had really nice meal so returned next night. Varied seafood on menu but some great meat dishes. Had oysters to start on both occasions because they were so good. On second night felt like a burger - it was really good. I asked for it rare, in fairness a good... More

Enjoyed after 4 days of seafood a meaty dinner. Location is nice and service very friendly. As in almost all places the waiters were also very helpful to explain the menu to my wife in English. Recommendation: Tartare and Salad with duck confit.

Delicious food and very friendly. Had scallops salad. Partner had chicken burger as doesn't eat fish or red meat. So we had struggled to find a restaurant that accommodated both our requirements. Had walked out of cafe de st Malo because they wouldn't serve my partner who wanted chicken. Scallop alad delicious but a bit pricey as not so many... More

My wife and I were in Saint-Malo for a few days. To complement this beautiful part of the world we decided to have lunch at Le Lion D'or. We were not disappointed. The service was superb, fast and friendly. A great menu on offer with fresh seafood included. We were so happy and satisfied with everything that we revisited the... More

The three of us ate here for our evening meal. The menu was quite extensive but catered more to meat dishes than seafood. prices were reasonable and the wine list good. I had mussels, HUGE is a way to describe it, along with tasty, great value and very well presented. My wife had salmon, my son the chicken burger- both... More

I was advised to visit this restaurant within the old town walls and was so pleased I took the advice. The location was great, the service was excellent and the food was amazing. There range of options were wide enough to meet most people's palette and the steaks were exceptional. My favourite though was the Camembert starter.

The food here is good and not fussy (although my wife was surprised at having foam on her fish), it is always open so no need to make a reservation, (although at busy times it is probably wise to do so). Good friendly service and a sensibly simple wine list. Our choice was excellent although I was unfamiliar with the... More

Whilst on a day trip with a friend decided to eat at this restaurant. We had a delicious starter followed by lamb, potatoes, tomatoes and herbs. large portions and very tasty. Following this we had a French tart and macaroons. Excellent too. A glass of lager quenched our thirst. Would certainly return and also recommend.

We were in St Malo for the first time...on an overnight stop over to catch a ferry. We stumbled into this part of town more by luck than judgement & managed t get a table here. Our choice wasn't particularly scientific..it was simply that every restaurant in the area was packed & having looked at this menu we thought it... More

Having eaten there last year we decided to go again. As always it was busy but we were soon seated. Once again the staff were really attentive and helpful, and once again we couldn't fault the food or wine. We came away feeling like we had eaten to much as usual. Can heartily recommend it.
