“Top quality for much less money than we expected”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2014

We visited Bergamote for a later morning coffee and we loved so much the atmosphere, the service and the look of the plates that were being served around us that we decided to book a table for lunch the following day.

The place is gorgeous, with a impressive level of attention to detail. Quite posh, we could say. By far, the most beautiful Salon the The in St. Malo. So we were expecting that the bill would be expensive. I had a wonderful quiche with salad and my wife tried a galette. Both of them were fabulous - rich, tasteful and with fresh, quality ingredients. We simply loved our lunch there. We also had some cider and a dessert to share, all together for less than 30 euros. We stayed four days in St Malo and by far the lunch at Bergamote was the best in terms of quality but also value for money.

And a very important thing: the service is superb. It's a family-run business and they put their best effort to make clients feel welcome and well attended. They even had the nice detail of giving us for free some delicious biscuits once we were leaving.

Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful place.

“Fabulous crepes”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2014 via mobile

Had the flambeed Grand Marnier crepes which were divine. My niece had the Frangipane crepe which was rich and amazing. The Kir Sauvignon was a perfect accompaniment. Great service plus the waiter was very personable and quite cute.

“Wonderful gateaux and Great pot of Tea”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 April 2014

We have been going to the Bergamote for six years, the two boys took over from their parents, standards have never drop either. The wonderful Salads, Crepes, omelettes. I can go on the quality is superb. If you are looking for a nice afternoon cream tea with their home baked scones plus a piece of one of the luscious homemade Cakes. For Lunch you need to book as a very
Popular establishment in St Malo, we will be back in May. WE LOVE IT DONT MISS IT.

“A must eat in St Malo”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 March 2014

This was one of the most enjoyable meals that we've had anywhere. We stopped in at around 1pm hoping that there was space only to find that nothing would be available until around 3pm. After we talked about it the host informed us that if we came back around 2, they would do some shuffling about and would ensure that we'd get a seat and sure enough they did.

First, the staff is the most friendly and helpful that we've encountered. They were very attentive and helpful. We ordered some of the local cider, which I must say was very good so had to order a second round. We started with a round of Galette, which was wonderful. I don't think you can go wrong with anything that you pick on the menu. We finished with one of the crepes and some tea. Again everything was perfect.

There is nothing I can fault about our lunch. Only that we don't have it near us in London and thus have to wait until the next time we're in St Malo to eat there again.
