If you love quaint, romantic, friendly and accommodating, this is the place. Two very short blocks from the Hotel Villa Lara, this restaurant is a gem in Bayeux. We called ahead about dietary restrictions and they were extremely helpful. We absolutely loved our evening there.

Best meal of our French adventure. High quality, imaginative preparation with local flair. Good value for this quality of food. Pleasant, knowledgeable staff. Reservations, in advance, a must due to small size and popularity in Bayeux

We had dinner at this wonderful restaurant and it was one of the best in France and Belgium (we were in both countries). You walk down a cute cobble stone alley and there it is. The decor is understated but very comfortable. The restaurant is small so make sure you have a reservation and get ready for excellent personalized service.... More

I'm a French food foodie, and this was one of the best meals I've had in France. My husband and I ordered from the lowest-priced set menu and were still astounded by the quality - and the service as well, impeccable yet friendly. The servers spoke perfect English, which is great when one's French vocabulary is nowhere near a native's.... More

Had a lovely dinner at La Rapierre last night. We had been there 2 years ago and I think it was even better this time . We had price fixe 3 and 4 course , which ranged from 29 euros to 40 euros. Excellent bottle of Bordeaux , super service, lovely atmosphere ... Best meal in Bayeux . Need reservations... More

Make no mistake, this is an outstanding restaurant. There is no option for a la carte dining here. Everything is fixed price depending on the number of courses you choose. However, having been at the L'Angel Saint Laurent twice I feel that is more to my taste. If anything the food there is slightly better and it is not pretentious... More

We enjoyed an excellent lunch here last week. The decor is understated but elegant, the service friendly and impeccable, and the food delicious and beautifully presented. Go, if you can get a reservation.

The chef is creative and presentation of food is excellent. The three women who welcome and serve are attentive and friendly but rushed off their feet. Still it gave time to appreciate the and savour very good food. The 29 euro menu is more than adequate and the 52 euros menu for those who especially like ( a lot of)... More

Read about this place in a Michelin Guide thought we'd try it for lunch while in Bayeux. It was worth it all courses were very well cooked and presented and the taste was exceptional. Great find and we'd go back - slightly incongruous part though was the Abba sound track plying throughout

If you want to have a fine dining experience in a warm, friendly and cozy restaurant then this is the place. Our hostess (Linda) was the wife of the chef and owner of the restaurant. It is a dramatic contrast to some of the pretentiousness we had in Paris. Don't miss this wonderful epicurean experience located a short walk from... More
