De Auberge is located a bit outside of Dol de Bretagne in what probably is an old farm. In this rural setting, one is struck by the interior of the restaurant, which is a pleasant mix of modern and classical in a bright and spacious setting. Especially the large space between the tables creates a tranquil and private setting. We were received very friendly and promptly seated without a reservation. Service was formal (the waiters made an effort to explain all dishes in English), but friendly and personable, and very efficient. As for the food: spectacular! We had 3 and 4 course menus. The menu is relatively small, but has an excellent selection of items. We had salmon and mackerel appetizers, but this description doesn’t do justice to the creativity and refinement of the dishes. Main courses were equally impressive, John Dory and a flatfish. Again, the dishes were very creative and delicate and we thoroughly enjoyed them. The cheese “platter “ was also special, a blue cheese cake and the deserts were wonderful. Overall this is one of the best meals we had in the last two weeks in France, and although we were excited about the
Positive reviews, the Auberge way exceeded our expectations and we would have certainly gone back if we had the time. The restaurant really stands out, the chef is masterful, and we recommended it highly even if you have to make a big detour when in the Saint-Malo/ Cancale area (it was only 2 miles from our Chambres d’Hote), and even more worth it if you combine it with a visit to Mont Dol or Dol de Bretagne.
