La Fringale - excellent for family of four.

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... read 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

Family run business daughter Morgan speaks good English mum and gran very pleasant smile a lot. Food is a basic French menu like others in... More

We walked into an empty restaurant at 7.30pm just as the evening was starting to get going. Friendly waitress sorted the usual stuff with a smile and food arrived as more diners arrived. The four staff busied themselves with a near full restaurant, fetching & carrying yet we were still looked after as a guest should be. Meals were tasty,... More

We came at 8 o'clock and the restaurant was almost empty. Then people came by and by and all the other tables were being served except ours after our order. We were simply ignored. Even if we kindly gave a sign to remember our order, we continued to receive no plates. We were sitting and waiting for our meals for... More

After having a look at all the other restaurants in the nearby, we choose La Fringale because it has an average price range, and we decided to order 3 courses from the 19€ menu. Dishes are from the French cuisine in general, not particularly Breton. As starters we tried the salmon tartare and the foie gras, as main course we... More

We ate here twice during our 3-day stay in Bayeux. The outdoor seating was comfortable (they had indoor seating, too), and it was relaxing to watch people stroll by. Our teenage boys were able to find items on the menu they liked, as were my husband and myself, and the prices were reasonable. Unfortunately, they didn't take American Express. As... More

Not great at all. Boring food, meagre portions and slow service. The menu is very random and the food lacks flavour or finesse.

The waitress suggested mussels but I didn't want them as a meal only a starter. sadly they were not offered as a starter. while I was choosing another dish she came back and said they would gladly do them as a starter. they were the best. really, really good. I also had the chicken with mushrooms and it was very... More

My wife & I stopped in last night for a lovely dinner. We stopped based on the fact that the seating was nearing full & the other restaurants were empty. My wife insisted we come back for our last night in Bayeux. Service was a little slow but it's b/c they are very popular, but it's worth the waiting; just... More
