We found this place on Tripadvisor and just went. The service was friendly and the food lovely! The foie gras rocked!

“Authentic delight”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2013

When you enter Saint Malo, you are received by a host of touristic restaurants that are ok. Just a minute further into the town, Le Bistro de Jean offers a much more authentic experience in terms of look, feel and taste. We ate really well and were delighted by the small details (like the offered delicatesse appetizers). Just make sure you book in advance ;)

“A great place for an informal lunch.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2013

We didn't make a reservation but were welcomed as if we had. Our choice was the lunch menu and we were not disappointed. My starter was a sardine rough pate with saled followed by a lamb stew which was very tender and delicious. The house wine was very reasonable and generous in the half bottle. We were made to feel very welcome and will return in the future.

“Very nice meal!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2013

Le Bistro de Jean was recommended by our Hotel. We were not disappointed. Our group of four Americans walked in without a reservation. Our hostess, Claudine(sp?) welcomed us warmly and helped us with the menu / specials. We enjoyed great food and wine...we all ordered seafood and thought it excellent. Service was very good even after they completely filled all their tables! The prices were a good value for the quality received!

“Wonderful Meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2013

We four friends chose this restaurant based on our hotel's list of suggested places. It turned out to be one of the best meals of our vacation. Three of us had the special of cod in phylo dough. Absolutely perfect. The 4th had scallops and said they were some of the best she'd ever had. The ambiance was warm and charming. The service was exceptional with the owner tending to us much of the time. Nice bottles of affordable wine. Would definitely go back.
