Stopped for breakfast after disembarking from ferry. Had one crepe and one roll plus coffee. €20+ just not worth it. Better to find a back street place.

Ate here on our only night in Saint-Malo. Best moules frites I've ever had, and the oysters were really fresh. Live music some nights as well which was great.

Had early breakfast upon arrival off the ferry, evening meal on our second day, (gorgeous piece of cod), and drinks and crepes before heading to the ferry home. Great service, very friendly.

This place was open late, which we appreciated since we had just gotten in. It was welcoming and they had a nice patio. A lot of safe stuff on the menu and lots of seafood, which is to be expected. Nothing really out of this world. My husband's steak was overcooked, not a great cut, and not of high quality,... More

The place is not really big and if you are not fine in sitting 30cms away from another table than you should not go there. The service is very good. Everyone is extremely professional and polite. The dinner started with some complementary butter and bread. We were in 6 and we ordered a starter and a main course each, plus... More

Very nice location for a casual dinner in the old town. Seating is quite tight but service is very attentive. Choose the torteau - so fresh you hear the ocean while eating it. Their moules are alright but the fries are not necessary, a bit soggy and cold. They serve Roederer Christal by the glass - that is classy

There seems to be a lot of Maison Hector eateries around St Malo, can't seem to get away from them! The restaurants look attractive and appealing from the outside, and the service was great. Unfortunately the food wasn't up to the same standard. Although it was an enjoyable enough experience, the steak was far too chewy and fatty to be... More

Always visit this restaurant whilst in St Malo but disappointed on this visit ! Very attentive staff but food not as good as normal. Both myself and husband ordered chicken caeser salad which was served on half an iceburg lettuce, very dry chicken smothered in dressing making everything soggy, more lettuce than chicken, not good at all, best part of...
