It is off the beaten track, but worth the trouble to find it! It is by far the best meal of the week we spent there. Professionally prepared, lovingly served, well presented. Amazing fish! Nothing else in St Malo compares (if you want good cooking)....More

This smaller restaurant is highly recommended. It was suggested to us by our innkeepers at Quic en Groigne for which we are grateful. Our dinner was excellent and beautifully served. It was the favorite of all our dining experiences while in France. Don't miss it.

Went with a party of friends for lunch. Good seafood, including the almost mandatory moules frites, and delicious oysters, another must-have in this part of the country. Good, friendly service, and good value house wine. Can recommend.

My boyfriend and I spent 5 nights in St. Malo and we both agreed that this was the best meal we had! It's a small quiet restaurant and I would say that the only downside is the lack of outdoor seating, however the food makes...More

As previous reviewers have said this is a hidden gem. Small but perfectly formed. The interior decoration is immediately calming and relaxing. The service is that perfect blend of care and assistance when when required without being obtrusive. Gilles is run by a husband and...More
