On a recent visit to St. Malo, we enjoyed an evening of culinary delights at this fine restaurant. The restaurant is handsomely appointed, and the service was superb. Two of our party of four ordered the eight-course degustation menu, while the others ordered different four-course menus. It was quite a remarkable feat of organization that the various courses were timed... More

We GAD a very good Chrismas Dinner. All Dishes with the exception of two were on a Michelin star level. The outs: - A marriage between capon breast and liver which was not very tasty, especially the breast was boring. Both breast and liver contained sinews. - The desert was so heavy and big that nobody (as far as I... More

Everything was so good here! Yes it's a 1-star, so a bit pricey, but it's well worth it! There is no view, it faces a parking lot, which is the best sign because you know they are putting money in the food and not the view. The service was great too, not over-bearing, very correct.

We had the €69 set lunch menu which came with a lovely selection of amuse-bouche and pre starters, the menu is simply stunning, as a chef of thirty plus... More

The best of the many fine restaurants at which I dined during a recent eating foray in France, Le Saint-Placide combines a refined yet friendly front of the house experience with exquisitely prepared food, delighting the eye as well as the palate. Not cheap, but this level of quality never is. Watch for a 2nd star one of these days!

Our meal began with a superb assortment of Breton hors d'oeuvres, which made it easier to overlook the peculiar modern decor of a dining room that looked rather like an airport restaurant. Our starters were very good, too, but things went off when we asked the woman running the dining room to take our white wine out of the ice... More

This is a high quality restaurant in the interesting St Servan area just outside St Malo. The atmosphere was very adult. It was sort of severe - in a good way. The staff are highly professional and efficient. The lunch menu was excellent value but I think I fared better going for one of the tasting menus. I went for... More

This restaurant is situated in the quiet outskirts of Saint Malo. It has a parking space and is housed in a renovated building. The interior is tasteful and modern; great attention has been given to every detail. The staff is very friendly, professional and helpful. The choice of menu is not very large, but this is a warranty of fresh... More
