Me and my partner found Malabar when we were looking for a place to hide from the rain. What a great find! Cozy restaurant which is clearly loved by the locals. I had the tartare de boeuf which was the best I have ever had. Full of flavour and the perfect amount of spice! My partner had the duck which... More

We stopped here for a light meal. The food was fresh and tasty. The atmosphere is quaint with a beautiful view of the mountainside. Our service too was very good and they all seemed to be working hard.

We had a meal here last night. Good quality food & very reasonable prices, €28 for three courses. The portions are generous and the wine ok too.

Absolutely impeccable food, the local is very nice and quaint, the service was initially lazy (it was probably a moment messed up), but then it improved!

It is sometimes difficult to get into a restaurant in StPdV, so we got it early. Unlike most of the restaurants on the sunny evening side it feels like a proper restaurant. Food was really good and nice choice of wines. The waiter was a bit thrown by the arrival of a party of 8, and got confused ! But... More

I prefer to leave positive reviews on TripAdvisor as if an establishment makes a real effort and serves good food, they deserve a pat on the back. This is the first negative review I have given but based on our experience, the current feedback for Malabar is not accurate and prospective clients need to be aware of the negatives, particularly...

Came to Town on holiday since it's an amazing place to come and visit. It was very late in the afternoon and most places where closed. We came to this place since it was open and where nicely surprised. The foods was great but the attention was not all that good and the place is not kids friendly. Again the... More

We were searching for a place to have lunch that wasn't so over-crowded as the other restaurants in St-paul. We found Malabar which is situated in a very quiet area. We sat at tiny table outside with a marvellous panoramic view and had late lunch there. The food was very good and the prices are definitely reasonable. Would recommend!

Our craving for French cousine has been totally quenched by this restaurant on the ramparts of Saint Paul. We have succumbed to perfect foie gras, home made confit du canard and exquisitely flavored steak tartare. Service attentive, environment airy and the bill modest.

Thank Pavel K
