This restaurant was suggested by a local bar owner to us. A little seafood seafront restaurant in a lovely beach area away from the touristic crowd of St Malo. We all ordered fish as main dish, appreciated by the way its presented and it's fantastic taste. Their chef certainly knows how to cook fish. They are serious about what they... More

La Cale is very popular as it offers excellent & reasonably-priced fish dishes, with a touch of originality. We recommend booking but be aware that booking for half an hour after the restaurant opens means that the staff are still dealing with those who have arrived before you - better to book for an hour or so later, when things...

Very good food. Had the oysters, escargot and foie gras beef. They were all amazing. Server speak some English, so that was useful for me when it came to food recommendation.

We got this restaurant as a tip from the owner of the B&B "manoir des barronies" and i have to say it really is a good one. We had the mussels and they were the best we ever had. We surely come back one day only to eat those. By the way the prices are ok and the staff was... More

We had a dinner here, the place is nice, and waitress is kind and polite. We had the big dish of sea fruits. It was very fresh and very good. They also suggest us a wine, that was very good.

It was a sunny evening and the terrace was nearly full, we asked if we could have a table on the terrace, we were told that they were reserved for the whole evening in a unfriendly way. So we decide to take a table inside as the menu looked good.Through out the evening when people left the tables outside they... More

We ate here on Monday and Thursday this week and both times the service was great, the food delicious and the staff very friendly. Soupe de poisson last night was great, could have eaten a bigger bowlful as was so good. Wonderful setting and both nights incredibly warm for September.

This restaurant was recommended by our French b&b owner as one of their favourites. We were not disappointed. Food and service were very good and personal. Would go again and recommend.

The food was pretty good, except for the worms crawling along the sides of the oyster shells. The owner/managerseemed unbothered by the crawling critters, calling them "algae." The service seemed both rushed and nonexistent, with little desire on their part to clarify what we were wanting.

Thank William L
