Pretty Street of Half Timbered Facades

This is a pretty little street with a small stream. It is worth a stroll to see the half timbered facades which Rouen is known for.

We passed here as part of a tour and stroll afterwards. Not much to see, unless the shops are open which was the case today.

This is the water street.because there is a very shallow canal that runs the length of the street. I really was not overly impressed with this street. I was actually a bit disappointed given previous reviews and photos of the area. There are some restaurants along the way. The canal looked filthy and filled with algae. I did like the... More

Water Street it was on our visit, it never stopped raining for the entire day. It is a quaint street, with several restaurants almost all of which were closed on our first night and none of which were open on our 2nd night. Disappointing.

Walking the Rue Eau de Robec makes you feel like you are in a small village rather than a major city like Rouen. Great restaurants/cafes, picturesque half timbered buildings, flowers, a stream embedded in the curb and no cars. What a find! Just a 10 minute walk up the Rue de la République from the Seine. Do it.

Visited this area on a Sunday and it was busy and fun. There was a beautiful carousel for children to enjoy, several crepe vendors along with fresh produce vendors.

Lovely little area, just a stroll on a nice day, like the rest of the town. Go when the shops are open though, more of a buzz.

This quaint little street is a must see on a trip to Rouen. A little waterway flows down one side of the street adding to the charm. There are plenty of bars and restaurants to choose from ( a really good looking noodle bar full of French people) but it's worth going just to see the very old buildings. Very... More

The street is away from the centre of Rouen. It is lined with old buildings and interesting architecture. A small waterway runs along one side of the street and it has little bridges all along it. There are many small, reasonably priced restaurants and it is here that you will find La Rocher, an informal restaurant that specialises in mussels.... More

One of the prettiest streets in Rouen hosting cafes and restaurants that offer off the beaten track value.
