We've visited this restaurant many times but not since it was literally blown away in 2008. When we were staying at a nearby hotel a few years ago, we asked for some restaurant recommendations and they didn't seem to rate this one. However, we were after a fruit de mer and thought we would give it another go for old times sake.
We made a reservation for a window table but to be honest as it was dark we totally missed out on the great view. However, the window tables do give a bit more room.
The fruit de mer came with a lobster which is unusual because you normally have to add that on as an extra in a lot of restaurants. It was a bit chewy though. The crab also had a lot of water ini t which made us wonder if it had been frozen. Surely not though! This is France and the seafood abundant. My husband had the cheese which was a choice from the board. He really raved about the epoisses which was one of the best cheese he had had in a restaurant. Wine was VERY expensive. Upper £20s. All in all, we will visit again as it is a tradition with us but it's not the best meal ever. As you would expect, many restaurants in St Malo are to serve the tourists. If you want a really good French meal try Bistro St Jean.

A lovely meal with family. Very nice service, just the right level without being too intrusive. Food was really good, every course. Desert was particularly good, had the Paris Brest. Would highly recommend.

4 excellent meals for 4 fussy gourmands in a crowded restaurant with a good atmosphere. Book in advance if you can or be very early.

Ate here at sunset and had a fabulous view from our table overlooking the beach. We also watched the tide come in. We had a set price menu which was excellent. The tuna was delicious and the waiter didn't look down his nose when I ordered mine well done. Service very efficient in spite of the fact that it was very busy.
