    We were looking for a restaurant for a nice dinner which wasn't a tourist trap in the old town of Saint-Malo. Found this on the internet and it ticked all the boxes. We had the menu with wine selection and the pairing of the flavors of both food and wine was excellent. I don't normally take pictures of dishes in a restaurant but this time I did... Would definitely recommend it and when in the area I know I will return there!!

    Great experience and lovely service! The waiter was very attentive and we all had the 3-course menu which was delicious and good size servings. The monkfish dish was a personal favorite!

    We loved our evening meal here. We had the Amazing 55 euro French Japanese influenced menu. The food was so tasty and we would definitely return.

    Nice but overpriced restaurant inside the Intra Muros of St Malo. The tuna tartare was very good, the duck breast and red mullet good, the vegetable menu and vegetable courses were small and way overpriced.

    The downstairs room is lovely with stone walls and large windows. We had a perfect round table for 4 and we all ordered one of the 3 course menus including the wine pairings. Everyone ate every bite of every course! All were delicious and beautifully presented. The wines were great too! An excellent evening with friends!

    This is a wonderful restaurant. Partly because we loved it the first time we went and partly (admittedly) because so many Saint-Malo restaurants close in late June, we went twice in three evenings. We certainly weren't disappointed. We tried different entrees, plats, and desserts--and thus different wine pairings--and everything we ate and drank was truly delicious. The service is also very friendly and exact. The owner of our small hotel called the restaurant "super" and "extra." It really is. Merci!

    Everything was outstanding: the 30 E menu (we chose six different dishes, all delicious), the wine pairings, the beautiful upstairs room, and the friendly, attentive server. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone wanting a special meal in Saint-Malo, and if I lived nearby, it would become one of my top go-to special-occasion places.
