Having eaten here before I was more than happy to go back again. I wasn't disappointed. I enjoyed a lovely lunch here and highly recommend it. The choice is varied and the staff are very welcoming and helpful. Particularly if you have any allergy queries and your French is a bit rusty! The only negative feedback I can give is... More

A great Café just inside the walls of old Saint-Malo, and a convenient place for breakfast, which we had three times during our visit to the city. We also had a mid-afternoon coffee on our final day in Saint-Malo, and I bought Macaroons (Vanilla, Caramel and Pistachio) another day for a treat. The staff were very efficient and friendly, the...

We stopped for lunch before our afternoon tour. Seafood at it's best, sitting in the fresh air and sunshine. Located near the carousel gate. Order of mussels the size of a small teepee. Cooked to perfection with white wine. Small and tasty. More than the two of us could eat. French fries are to die for. Draft beer is good.... More

This is a popular place on the Main Street and having walked past many times we tried it one night after foregoing dessert at our restaurant. Chose the Nutella and cream waffle and it was great - bit of a struggle to eat with so much cream but loved it all the same!

Right in the middle of a great huddle of restaurants inside the walls of the old town, and also known as la Licorne (the Unicorn). In high season it seems to run non-stop all day and was very busy. We arrived unannounced for an early supper, were warmly welcomed and promptly served by staff in Breton jerseys, white dungarees and... More

Lovely spot to eat, in the main heart of Saint Malo walled town. Food good but a little pricey, but to be expected considering location. Be warned, husband ordered a salad as wanted something light, it was huge!! Had a lovely meal and would highly recommend.

Great little place to stop off for a sandwich, hotdog and chips. Especially if you have had enough of crepes etc. It's quite close to the beautiful cathedral in town centre. Recommend I cheeky visit.

While staying in Saint-Malo this summer we went there everyday to get some beignets filled with nutella. The place is really cute, all pink and girly kind-of-50s interior and as I said before THE BEIGNETS ARE TO DIE FOR!

Lively restaurant next to an outdoor artist's market (might only be Sunday's). Waiters very pleasant and all seemed to enjoy being there. Excellent crepes and good wine.
