We had the set lunch which was absolutely delicious. There was a delightful amuse- bouche followed by St Jaques with gratin potatoes then a lovely Apple dessert. All accompanied by a delicious half bottle of wine . There is obviously a deft touch in the kitchen. Service was attentive and the general ambience relaxing. Would have loved to return for... More

My boyfriend and I spent 5 nights in St. Malo and we both agreed that this was the best meal we had! It's a small quiet restaurant and I would say that the only downside is the lack of outdoor seating, however the food makes up for this. My boyfriend had the salmon tartare followed by the duck, and both... More

As previous reviewers have said this is a hidden gem. Small but perfectly formed. The interior decoration is immediately calming and relaxing. The service is that perfect blend of care and assistance when when required without being obtrusive. Gilles is run by a husband and wife team, he in the kitchen and she front of house. On the evening we... More

This is an excellent family run restaurant in terms of friendly and competent service, super quality and good value. We were delighted with it last year. Back in St Malo recently we thought it might be interesting to find somewhere else to eat - but having looked around we found nothing we were more impressed by. Sometimes it can be... More

We came across this restaurant in the back streets of Saint Malo, having despaired of finding somewhere that didn't sell pancakes! There is a smallish menu with a range of interesting dishes and we found the quality of cooking very good. The menu is either 26 euros for to course or 32 euros for three. Worth finding your way here.

Very small family owned restaurant in the heart of St. Malo. The ambiance is great; calm and soothing. The service is superb; the staff is very attentive and ensure that the experience is perfect. The presentation and quality of the food is simply outstanding. I was in St. Malo for 5 days and ate at Restaurant Gilles twice. I highly... More

Interesting restaurant, recommended by Dominique from Hotel Quic en Groigne, two streets down, and owned by Eliane and Philippe Poignand, he in the kitchen, she at the front, with that night a young man to help with the ten tables. The very sober decor in pale gray renovated in 2014, gives the restaurant an elegant and minimalist look. A nice... More

We arrived late in Saint Malo and our B&B host managed to get us a reservation here. We were exhausted from a very long drive and were not expecting to generate much enthusiasm for a dinner. But the staff here rose to the occasion and provided us with a wonderful meal and experience. I had some of the freshest oysters... More

You can chose from different Menues. Everything is gr8t. Gentleman, Wine is fine, but the local Beer here is a good one. Gr8t Value for Money. Lovely Service can translate the french card in English. My starter favorite are Oysters with the Vinegrage.
