    Beautiful restaurant and lovely staff but sadly the paella was a let down. Tastless, salty and very oily. Cured meats were delicious

    First time here but we'll be back. Got the Charcuterie, pea shoots salad, Ceviche and Paella. All were great. Great N/A cocktail as well.

    The service was great and they gave us a glass of bubbly on the house as it was our wedding anniversary. Cocktails lovely and reasonably priced. The place looks stunning, the food very tasty, paella could have had a more crispy base (that’s what I thought it was supposed to be like). All in all a wonderful evening. Thankyou.

    We took friends from interstate. We were disappointed with the food. It was quite expensive. Wine about $70 a bottle. There were so many flies in the restaurant. We had to wave them away from the food continually during the meal. We had high hopes. Sadly, We won’t be returning

    Hi KimM, Thank you for your feedback. I would have loved a little more information on your thoughts reference the food as to why you were disappointed. Feedback is valuable to all our team and our head chef is meticulous in his craft and also values our guest's reviews. I also note you sat outside (tagged above Outdoor Dining); our team would have happily moved your party inside for your comfort. We all sincerely would love to see you come back. The Director/Saint Malo

    Visually, this restaurant is absolutely stunning! The rustic European summer vibes were gorgeous and created such a nice ambiance. We got the ‘Tasting Menu’ for four of us and there was so much food but it was all delicious! Saint Malo does the tasting menu well as they allow plenty of time in between courses to take your time with the food, with plenty of time to chat with your group. Each and every cocktail we’d tried was spectacular, with a particularly special mention to the Pomo-Grape Spritz. The staff were incredibly friendly and very attentive, and although we overstayed our welcome (we really were there for hours) they were so friendly and polite and didn’t make us feel like we were imposing! Optically, the decor was gorgeous and I mean this when I say you’ll get some gorgeous photos if that’s what you’re after!

    Hi Jess, Thank you for the beautiful candid review, the team were absolutely delighted to read such lovely comments and are thrilled that you all had a fabulous time in our venue, nothing is an imposition, and no one overstays their welcome :-). Sheen our curator of cocktails is a sensation, and we are very lucky to him, along with our fabulous service team and extraordinarily talented chef and his cuisine team. We look forward to welcoming you in again for another wonderful experience.

    We had a wonderful lunch before heading home to Melbourne, Shein was a beautiful host and makes the best cocktails, the restaurant is so beautiful and you would think you were in Greece, we would definitely go back when in Canberra 😍

    The service was exceptional. Great advice on how many dishes to order. We were outside but felt cold and the staff made every effort to move us inside as soon as it was possible. The staff were very pleasant and polite and attentive. The food was amazing! We enjoyed every dish we chose.. Fantastic wine selection. Lovely ambience. We will definitely return.

    Fabulous feedback back BelindaS, our sincere thanks from the SM team. We remember you and you were a delight to host :-) Look forward to seeing you again. The Director
