This is a superb small charming restaurant but what it lacks in size it makes up in the delightful food . With the older style decor you almost feel like you are stepping back in time , all that was missing was hearing Edith Piaf playing on a scratchy Gramophone ! It's a nice touch and unpretentious . I had... More

Crab beignets were very good, cod with bisque sauce and beans just perfect, crumble of sour plums and velvety vanilla ice cream superb. Very high quality food and very affordable

We stumbled upon Bouche en Folie and were told by a passing local that it was excellent. So we obviously had to go. We had to wait until they opened at 7pm to make a reservation at 8pm but everything went smoothly and it was a great meal. We both had the rillettes of mackerel to start, and then the... More

We spotted this gem of a restaurant whilst we were walking around the ramparts of Saint-Malo and decided to check it out and we are so glad that we did. It's not in the main touristy area of the citadel and you might say that it's somewhat off the beaten track, but that only adds to its charm. Unlike so... More

Terrific service at this wonderful little restaurant away from the din of the more touristy area. It's a very peaceful location and the food is very fine and relatively inexpensive. It's about 21 euros for entree, plat and dessert which is a little more pricey than some lunch menus but it is good value.

The restaurant is across the road from where we stayed and was always busy so we booked for Saturday night. We were welcomed by the maitre'd and service was prompt and friendly despite the restaurant being full. The food was beautifully presented and delicious. I had a smoked salmon pannacotta entre and veal for the main. My husband had duck... More

My partner and I had a meal here last summer and I'm still dreaming about the steak I had! It was probably one of the best meals I've had in France and I've been visiting St Malo for 25 years!

This restaurant was interesting! We were initially unsure about the service but as the evening went on it improved. The menu was small as was the restaurant space. However, the food was good and the closeness of the tables made for some fun conversation with other diners and the staff. As the restaurant is quite small, make sure to book... More

I phoned from Scotland eight days before we arrived in St Malo and reserved a table for eight of us on the night before we were setting out to cycle from St Malo to Sete in the south of France. We were very much looking forward to eating in the Bouche en Folie due to good reports, especially since it... More
