Fast but relaxed, steady quality through the years, a choice of Breton galettes for all tastes and crepes for dessert. A favorite.

A superb Creperie - we landed lucky - it looked like there were only 2 or 3 staff but boy were they efficient. A great selection of Crepes and Galettes. All our needs were dealt with very quickly by a friendly helpful lady and the food was superb and very reasonably priced. On top of that the view was fabulous!... More

If you want really delicious galettes and crepes in Saint Malo, step outside the ramparts and walk around the marina, past the ferry port, to the Tour Solidor, where, in the little port, overlooking the sea, you will find an excellent creperie. There are two in this little cluster of unexceptional appearance of the outside belies the excellent and delicious... More

Such yummy crepes! Given that there are so many creperies in Brittany, I thought they would all be pretty much the same. Not so! We had an extraordinary meal here. We ordered our crepes with seafood and also some moules frites. All were SO FRESH!

When I was much younger and living in Brittany, my brother and me were regulars at La Caraque, a great little Crêperie on Saint Servan harbour, near Tour Solidor. I was nicely surprised to see that this favourite restaurant of mine still existed when I went back in the area after a very long time away. The crêpes and galettes... More

A Sunday evening in May and we were in good spirits after touring and walking along the Brittany coast. We entered La Caraque and greeted the woman who apparently ran the place, la patronne. The patronne barked at us "Là ou là" ("there or there"), stabbing her finger at two empty tables and turned her back before I could ask... More

So, you've got to St Malo with an hour to spare for the ferry - what to do. Well, you could do a lot worse than searching out this place. On a quite Quai close to the Main Street (but difficult to navigate to through the medieval streets) this place is just a 5 minute drive (15minutes on foot) from... More

Stunning views overlooking the the quay solidor. La Caraque is on a row of similar eateries, near one of the many beaches in the st malo area. This one was five minutes from where we were staying. We had a galette each and I had a crepe for dessert and my husband and son had a banana split each. The... More

A bit off the main tourist area in St Malo.. Overlooks the harbour near the Tour Solidor - very special when the tide is in! I love galettes and have never had a better one - the complet with smoked bacon. Fantastic! My wife had the Corsaire - similar to mine but with onions (lots) added. Sat outside in the... More

It's out of the main tourist areas and on a lovely quiet little harbour, on quay solidor. The service is quirky and when you ask for a diet coke you get a Breton cola, which is quite unique and just as good as the "normal" coke. The galettes (savoury) and crepes (sweet) are delicious and arrive quickly. The salad, on... More
