This restaurant was recommended by our French b&b owner as one of their favourites. We were not disappointed. Food and service were very good and personal. Would go again and recommend.

The food was pretty good, except for the worms crawling along the sides of the oyster shells. The owner/managerseemed unbothered by the crawling critters, calling them "algae." The service seemed both rushed and nonexistent, with little desire on their part to clarify what we were wanting.

This is a great restaurant in a super location just outside St Malo. Great place to sit in the sun enjoying French seafood and Rose win.

The first evening we dined at La Cale, we were very pleasantly surprised at the fine quality and freshness of the food and the great service. The presentation was beautiful and every thing we ordered was delicious. We enjoyed our experience so much that we returned the next evening for dinner.

Arrived late for lunch but still graciously served. Foie gras was superb. Our group had oysters, seafood salads and fish of the day ( pollack). All seafood was fresh and delicious. Creme brûlée was best I've ever eaten.

We spent 2 nights in Saint-Malo and dined here on both occasions as after dinner the first night we couldn't imagine finding doing better anywhere else. We were very lucky to secure a table the first night without a booking as the restaurant was almost full when we arrived and many people were continuously being turned away during the course...

We have just got back to our appartement after an amazing birthday meal at La Cale. One thing was on our minds after 3 days in Britanny, the best fruit de mer we could find! We have been to Cancale, the oyster capital and seen the best in St Malo but thought why travel? The front at Quai Solidor has... More

Fish can be tricky. Sometimes it's 'Long Time No Sea.' And by then it's too late! When we walked past this restaurant, it was almost full and this was not the case for the others in the area. The menu looked interesting as did the food being served inside. We wound up eating there two nights in a row because,... More
