    A delightful restaurant with a great menu at a reasonable price for the quality. The staff were friendly and helpful without being intrusive. We took the option to have the selected wines with each course in a fixed price menu, and they married perfectly with our selections. The presentation of each plate was excellent, and the portions were perfect overall. This is not a cheap restaurant, but I felt that we got good value for money.

    We chose the duck and fish of the day for main and the selection of cheeses and the vacherin for desert. The meals were nicely prepared and the service was nice as well. The meringue of the vacherin was a bit sticky as apposed to being fluffy and crunchy. The brands for soda’s served were regular, whereas for this kind of restaurant you would expect higher quality brands.

    The restaurant is pretty full with tourist and the waitress rather fast and accomodating but far from a real french restaurant. The food was okay, unfortunately the taste rather average and not super fresh.

    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.
