Fab Meal at La Fringale

We visited Bayeux on a trip to Cherbourg. As it was mid January, a lot of the local restaurants were closed. Luckily we stumbled upon La Fringale. The food and service were excellent, and extremely good value for money. We will definitely return when back in the area.

The food was adequate, the frites as cold as the ambiance. The beef was flavoursome but very chewy. Disappointed.

We met our friends from Belgium for a delicious dinner and we were not disapointed. The four of us decided to go with the prix fixe selections - the price was right and the choices were just what we wanted. Starting with escargot, salmon entree and apple custard pie for me. I enjoyed it all!

Recently had a meal at Le Fringale. Service was good. Food tasted fine. But the cut of beef was so tough, I literally had to chew each bite 100 times. I was in France for 30 days and this was the only poor meal I had.

Food was excellent. I had the duck breast, my husband had the special of the day -beef bourguignon and we shared the foie gras. Loved it and the service was great. Our hotel made the reservation for us which I had heard you would need during some months. It was not to crowed when we were there but glad we... More

While it was clear that we were no longer dining in Paris, this restaurant tries really hard and succeeds on most levels. They are also most accommodating and welcoming. We came in late one evening with nine people and they did a more than creditable job. The menu has a great many choices, including pizza! The preparations and dishes (except... More

Ate supper here two nights in a row on August 20/21, 2015 with my wife and two teenagers. A very traditional French outdoor cafe experience on the Main Street of Bayeux. Service was prompt and professional. Food was plentiful, delicious and well presented. It was also very affordable, especially when travelling as a family. It's also located very close to... More

We had a fairly bad experience at this restaurant. It was a Tuesday in August so quite full but not ram packed. The waitress was very friendly but unfortunately we waited around an hour for our meals. Other tables seemed to be getting their food ahead of us and a few waitresses did notice and indicate our meals were on... More
