We chose this restaurant after looking on her at the reviews.
This is a tiny restaurant, the atmosphere is very intimate, on entering we were greeted by the character Christophe, he immediately handed us a Stylophone straight out of the sixties and a container of French Trivial pursuit questions which kept us amused until the cocktail maison arrived... it was pretty strong! Christophe's wife cooked up a storm behind the counter in full view and the food was excellent, The menu is small but perfectly cooked, our Chicken Brochettes were superb!
If you want hand cut chips, superbly cooked meat in a quirky and convivial atmosphere you won't go far wrong here.

We were there last summer and this place is great. We had a problem with the reservation and the guy made sure we could have a great dinner in the place in front (deux verres) after inviting us to some drinks. The day after we went back and the food was awesome, the service was awesome. Just go and try.

We had wonderful food...and a very enthusiastic owner, Christopher! He was extremely helpful in making sure our dining experience was a fun evening. The beef meals we orders were delicious as was a pork special my husband ordered. A small bar area that was lively also. I would have liked to have had more time in San Malo, as we would have dined at Au Coin Malouin more than once.

I'm a more than frequent guest at "Au Coin Malouin" and I can swear that all the former positive reports are true.
Of course it is NOT a creative, experimental, gourmet restaurant, nore an "étoilé" gastronomy place, and of course not a posh, snobbish place...
It is a place where the friendliness of the welcoming is at least as generous as the volume and quality of food given to you. All from very good products, best meat, vegetables, real fresh french fries and everything is homemade.
So the real point is that "HappyTraveller" (rather more "Grumpy Traveller"!!!) has made a real mistake in choosing this restaurant. Maybe they've only looked at the rating and did not read what all the guests wrote about the generosity and quality of the food and the ambiance.
I pretend to be a gourmet and I love all these étoilés and creative young (or old!) Chefs,( if you have a look at my former comments, you'll be able to see that I'm quite eclectic), but sometimes you just need a place like Au Coin Malouin, for more than feeding you.
Please go on like you do and don't care about grumpy travellers :)
