We had abalones with parsley as a starter followed by fresh lobster. Everything was simply perfect and the service extremely friendly. A must if you are a true seafood lover.

We read the reviews online and concluded to try this best little restaurant in Saint Malo. It didn’t disappoint us. Two of us shared one giant lobster and one fish as main course, oyster and scallops as starter. All dishes are nicely prepared. It costs EUR 200 in total. The most expensive meal we paid in Saint Malo but worth it!

There are scores of restaurants and brasseries within the city wall (intra-muros) serving moules, huitres and plateau of fruits der mer; they all undoubtedly have their merits, but for a superlative seafood restaurant, head straight for La Chalut. This is French cooking and fresh seafood at its very best. The Focats have been here for 30 years, Jean-Philippe in the kitchen and Sophie as front of house. Every mouthful was an absolute joy with all the sauces complementing the very fresh seafood ingredients. The service is friendly and professional. They obviously have the complete confidence in themselves in not having to keep asking if everything is all right with every course (UK restaurants please note).
This is a 'must go to' restaurant if you are in St Malo.

Le Chalut is a real Gem. Family run, with wife at front of house, and husband in the kitchen. We went for the $59 menu, with a truly delicious scallop starter and turbot for the main. Each dish cooked to perfection.
The atmosphere in this small restaurant was warm and friendly, with a very French charm!
St Malo is lovely place, and Le Chalut is worth seeking out.

This Restaurant is a gem.
Obviously Family run. The wife ( we presume) is in the front of the house with two teenagers. The restaurant has only a few tables and the atmosphere superb. The staff were all on top of the service and knew exactly what was required at each table and when.Really first class service.
A seafood restaurant with fish cooked to perfection We had the turbot .I later reread the description in the LP to discover it had 1 Michelin star: They deserve it.Loved it because it was Not pretentious as other starred restaurants are.
Highly recommend it but reserve .
