We came here cause the restaurant opposite turn us away claiming they were full, which we doubt it but we won't go there. The service is unpredictable, depending on the waiter/waitresses. Being France, one eventually comes to expect this kind of service. I had my foie gras pate entrée and breast of duck for my main. The portion was generous... More

We ate here twice, the first because of TA, the second because our other choice was full. I'm sorry I came back. We have been in France for 10 days, so I've eaten a lot of places. This one would be just okay in the States, but worse than average here in France. One waitress was nice, but the other... More

The food is simple and out of this world. Huge portions, excellent service the only reason the delivery of service was slow was that it was made from fresh and that is not a complaint! We visited this restaurant twice on our three day visit and as you can imagine the food lived up to its expectations more so the... More

Late back to Bayeux one night and without reservation, this was about the only place we could get into. Very popular outside, not so much the inside tables. Tripadvisor scores good, so thought it would be nice. The service, though polite, was terribly slow. The kids nearly exploded waiting for various courses of food. I dread to think what it... More

We came after a long day of seeing sights and were rewarded with a nice, relaxing meal. We ate inside because the outside tables were full. The special for the evening was mussels and fries which were quite good, but we were surprised at how many there were in our serving. Though the were slightly smaller than we're used to,... More

We arrived in Bayeux very late at night and most restaurants were already closing their kitchens. We knew nothing at all of La Fringale when we stopped, but they welcomed us into their already-empty restaurant and stayed late to accommodate our party of six. The food and service were both excellent, and despite the late hour (it was nearly 11pm),... More

Thanks Trip Advisor for the reviews on this restaurant. It's our best dinner in France in 4 days of being here. We will go back to eat here again before leaving Bayeux.

Our hotel recommended Fringale and we had a lovely dinner there. The galettes were delicious. Service was friendly. The only disappointment was the unavailability of many of the non-alcoholic beverages listed on the menu

We had a lovely evening in this restaurant. There was a good variety of food so the vegetarian and fan of French food each found food they enjoyed.

We were 4 adults and a 10 year old. We had an evening meal which was very good and worth a visit. The service was reasonably quick and the food all well prepared and cleanly served. The choice on the menu as reasonable and had something for most people.
