It must be twenty years since I'd holidayed in France with my parents but being in Jersey for the weekend I took the ferry over to St Malo for a day trip.
I chose Le Cafe due Saint Malo primarily because after a walk around looking at menu's this seemed to have the best choice of seafood platters. The waiting staff were pleasant and friendly, helping out a poor English traveller whose French wasn't quite as good as he imagined.
I had the Plateau Frigate which was cold prawns, langoustine, crab and snails (along with another crustacean of some description - language barrier again) and it was delicious. It was obviously fresh and beautifully presented. The Creme Brulee for desert was huge too.
There's always the fear that a restaurant with such a prominent will be nothing more than a tourist trap but nothing could be further from the truth in my experience.
And although my platter was around €35 there were plenty of cheaper options including some good value set menu's.
