In the heart of St. Malo just out of the tourist walk along the Wall. It is cozy and comfortable with amazing fish, crab, oysters, mussels and shrimps.

Had love meal of mussels 1kg in fact, were cooked really well. So good went back the next night. Good value. About the going rate with the other places in the strip. Service was good gets very very busy, so did have to wait for bill to arrive and if paying by card even longer wait. So take cash!

We came to eat here last week, based on Google reviews. Not only was the staff curt, but after waiting 20 minutes to order and seeing that others who came after us were been attended to first, we got up and went down the street to l'Ancorage, where we had a delicious fish dinner and were treated with exemplary hospitality.

We visited this restaurant on a day trip to St.Malo. We chose from the menu du jour @ €16.90. The meal started off with a promising starter for each of us - oysters and charcuterie. Both were delicious. However it went down hill from there. We were waiting over an hour for our main courses. Other customers ordered and had eaten their meal before we got ours! We made some allowances for it being a leisurely lunch but despite calling the waiter who blamed the chef it really was quite ridiculous!! We eventually were served the main course - steak and frites and moules and frites. The mussels were very small and the juice was tasteless. The chips were overcooked. I asked the waiter to bring the dessert immediately and we left as quickly as possible, never to return, I'm afraid. A couple sitting near us also had problems with the waiter and there was a difference of opinion over the order given.

We sat down outside on an end table and ordered, weather got cool so we asked to sit inside, there were tables but we were told they were taken/full and they can't change our order on the till!! . We asked to move to a warmer outside table but told we couldn't. So we were stuck! Starters came ok then waited an hour for mains... seemed under staffed... my husband's steak kebab was over cooked, my sole was absolutely delicious! Starters crab and st jacques scallops were divine. Desserts were average. The indoor tables were never full so we felt bit sore they had not allowed us to be more comfortable inside! A mixed experience!
