Good location, good service, loos clean. The prices may be a bit more expensive than other creperies, but well worthwhile. If available try the galette de ble noire au boudin et pommes! Superb combination.

Good galettes. Off the beaten track. Attentive service and good value. Very small establishment. Food came very quickly - withing 3-4 minutes of the order.

Saint malo is full of creperies and it's always difficult to judge the reviews on tripadvistor, but not on la brigantine. In early September (after summer holidays) and lunchtime means it wasn't very busy and we were seated very quickly. There was a good selection of galettes and crepes, savoury and sweet. I went for the super malouine and it... More

We found this place through the reviews on tripadvisor and since we were on a crêpe adventure, we were real excited that we got a table for all 9 of us without reservation. The space is a bit of a squeeze - but then it seems to be like that for most crêpe restaurant throughout France. Can't fault the menu,... More

Great crepes and galettes of course. So many creperies in St. Malo. How does one choose? We chose based on Trip advisor and were not disappointed. Look at the chalk board to see specials not on the menu like galette aver saucisse de ferme, sausage that is farm fresh, or ham from Spain. My wife had one of the completes... More

Wanting something sweet and having bypassed other busy places on the main tourist trail we came across this lovely little creperie. We only wanted coffees and ice creams. and noticed that prices were 4 euros cheaper for ice cream sundaes than in the centre of town. Those customers eating gallettes and crepes seemed very content and all food looked delicious.... More

Often we encounter restaurants that open for the lunch sitting of 12-2 pm and close again until dinner time at 7 pm. This place still serves customers in the afternoon so we were very pleased to be able to enjoy a late lunch. The servers are kind, speak a little English, and the atmosphere is congenial. I can't say I... More

Here is the irony: you are in Brittany, stuck in St Malo on a rainy day and you fancy crepes. And you are not quite sure which creperie to pick. Too many of them ! And not always the most appealing, many looking like a tourist trap. This one is a classic. The food is excellent and the awards galore... More

Large restaurant, lively, with mixed size groups including familes nonetheless manages to serve good crepes from a wide ranging menu. Cheerful, attentive, staff and a fast kitchen. Recommended to us by our hotel, and they weren't wrong: maybe the best crepes in town. Seems family run and they certainly seem to care.

This is a busy creperie with good food, friendly staff and a good atmosphere. The place was full and people were turned away. The simple starter crepe with salted butter was fantastic. With nothing to hide the quality of the crepe this is always a good way to test the standards. The set menu was good value and the kit... More
