Went for a lunch in this restaurant while visiting Saint Malo. We had to wait at least 20-25 minutes before anyone took our order. Drinks came only after meals and only after we had asked them again. We did not get bread and had to ask for water twice. Service could not get any worse. Quality of the food was... More

I wish we hadn't been to this restaurant. We had a similar experience to a previous reviewer, lady managing the restaurant has a very warped view of what service is. She was rude and unhelpful. Despite my decent french, I definitely got the impression that this was because we were English - dyou know what, don't work in a tourist... More

I'm so glad I didn't look at TA before going to this restaurant for lunch as we would have been put off by previous reviews and missed out on amazing tasting gallettes. The service was excellent too. The waitress was friendly and efficient.

One of many restaurants offering moules & frites with a crepe and a drink for about the €10 mark. Chose this one simply because it wasn't too busy and we had a pushchair to manoeuvre through. They are all quite small due to their location built into the city wall. Our waiter was a nice enough chap, but seemed a... More

Stopped here for lunch on a busy day and managed to get a table for six organised under the awning. The service was a little slow but the food was very good and worth the wait.

This restaurant has a great location in the main cobbled street tourist area of the walled city of St Malo. It has a pleasant interior, and comfortable terrace area. There is a lot of competition here, and this place is probably going for the economy end. It appeared at 1st sight to be very good value at just 14€ for... More

Good value for money. Young Restaurant waitress with black hair was lovely. Now don t forget to switch off the light in the toilet otherwise the old chef will remind you you re not in your house in a rude manner. There is a way to talk to people especially shy lady. Don t expect to dry your hands either... More

We both had the 11 euro menu which was excellent value with 2 courses and a glass of wine each which was all very nice. The waitress from the earlier reviews appears to still be there which is a pity as it is her attitude that lets the place down. The food and atmosphere itself are fine, however, she was... More

To be clear, the younger waitress was pleasant and friendly. That cannot be said for older woman. Her attitude from our first walking in, to throwing menus on table, time taken to order and visible annoyance at our limited French was the worst we have experienced anywhere in France. The establishment did not have coke light or shandy and no... More
