France Travel Planner by Tom Brosnahan & Jane Fisher   Restaurants in Saint-Malo, France
Warm-weather weekends are a mob scene at Saint-Malo's restaurants. Tables are more easily available on weekdays.




Seafood, Bretonne crêpes, kouign-amann, and cidre are the Breton specialties in Saint-Malo restaurants, but you'll find sandwiches, pizzas and other light fare, and full-course dinners as well.

The largest concentration of cafés and restaurants is in Place Chateaubriand, just inside the Porte Saint-Vincent near the Office de Tourisme. This is a fine place to see, be seen, people-watch, and sip a drink or enjoy a full meal, though prices tend to be a bit higher here. These restaurants also tend to stay open longer at night than others farther into the walls.

The rue d'Orleans, along the inside of the western ramparts, is also lined with restaurants that tend to be a bit less crowded.

Perhaps the most delightful place for a drink or light meal at moderate prices is the Place du Marché aux Légumes, at the western end of the rue de la Vieille Boucherie. The flower-filled, tree-lined square is pretty, with the ancient market building at its eastern end. The rue de la Vieille Boucherie is also lined with eateries.

For sunset, the self-service Bar de la Soleil is on the beach by the Bonsecours Piscine swimming area at Porte Saint-Pierre, just east of the Bastion de la Hollande, the perfect place from which to gaze at the sunset.
