Well located, this restaurant offers a "terrasse" offering a nice view of Old st Malo, but what mostly pleased me was the service: fast, courteous, everybody smiling and joking, wearing a moustache for Movember, and of course great meal ( we had the famous mussels and french fries combo)...

This restaurant is right by the main gate into St Malo. But don't walk past it to look for a little restaurant in a back street because this one is superb! I had lunch there before I went to catch the ferry home. I'd decided upon some sort of fish and half a bottle of wine but eventually was also... More

Craig and I went to St Malo for his Birthday in October and spent the day wandering around Dinard. When we got back on the little boat we realized just how hungry we were and headed straight into the walls of St Malo and found this lovely restaurant that was still serving food (it was after lunch but before dinner)....

A real restaurant not a tourist trap business. Good french cuisine done with care and with quality ingredients and served with friendly attention so lacking in a lot of restaurants. Really liked my steak tatare and the Stilton salad was well served no searching for a walnut or the Stilton here. Definitely worth a visit when in saint malo in... More

Had oysters to start on both occasions because they were so good. On second night felt like a burger - it was really good. I asked for it rare, in fairness a good... More

Enjoyed after 4 days of seafood a meaty dinner. Location is nice and service very friendly. As in almost all places the waiters were also very helpful to explain the menu to my wife in English. Recommendation: Tartare and Salad with duck confit.
