With my wife we had the tip from a couple of friends : this small restaurant (24 places only) is definetely exquisite. We enjoyed the dishes (lamb for my wife and roasted cod for me) and we told the Cook/chef who happens to be also the owner : he is a nice person and you can tell he really likes... More

We made a reservation for Restaurant Bouche en Folie and had a very positive dining experience. It is a small intimate restaurant, and the service was very efficient. We really liked the menu on the blackboard (although did have to ask a few questions about what items were). The servers didn't speak a lot of English, but we were in... More

Met up with relatives for lunch here. Menu was limited but reasonable priced for France. Cod patties were a surprise as they came uncooked as was correct for this region. Quite small portions of pork but well cooked. The owner/manager very helpful and pleasant, his English was adequate but having a French speaker with us helped.

I would like to review the place, but despite the many attempts we were not allowed to eat there and literally kicked ou from the restaurant. We went there the first time on a Sunday and the place was actually full so we were refused. The night after, we came back, this time also quite early, around 19:30 and the... More

We enjoyed a delicious meal with fresh and local ingredients. The service was excellent-- the waiter even joked with me-- and the atmosphere was warm and inviting. It was an outstanding experience all around.

Wanting a small traditional unpretentious French restaurant, this was perfect. Yes more pricey than others but the food was superb. The décor simple, it was all about the food. Loved it.

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
