“Wow! What a meal!”
Reviewed September 21, 2012

This is a real restaurant unlike many eateries in St Malo which do only crepes and seafood. Le Borgnefesse has an excellent menu and very reasonable set menu for 17 euros. Service was admirable. We would definitely go again.

“Top quality, great service, good prices”
Reviewed August 26, 2012

Had a meal there on a busy Thursday night and were lucky to get a table (we had not booked).
The restaurant was recommended by the owner of the (very) small bar opposite.
My family of four chose from two set menu options and the a la carte. The food was top class, as was the service and the prices very good value. After two weeks trying various French restaurants this was by far the best.

“My favorite restaurant to date in St-Malo”
Reviewed January 23, 2012

Le Borgnefesse was my favorite dining experience during a week-long stay in St-Malo - after happening on the restaurant for lunch one day, I returned for dinner on my last evening. The atmosphere is a nice combination of convivial and discreet, comfortable for solo diners, couples and groups of 3-4 (and with extra space downstairs for a larger group). The restaurant is operated by a husband-wife team, he in the kitchen and she in the dining room - both are friendly and professional in a lovely French way. Lunch on my first visit included mind-blowingly flavorful oysters from Cancale, beautifully presented. Seafood and other dishes are prepared with both imagination and respect for tradition, and with superior flavor. Very reasonable prices for the quality. I hope to return, and meanwhile, highly recommend this place!
