We stopped here for lunch prior to visiting the Bayeaux Tapestry. Delicious and good value for the money. Duck was excellent.

We dined here last night and were highly pleased. La Rapiere is a lovely restuarant and I would highly recommend it and suggest you reserve before going as it was sold out. I had the best oysters I've ever eaten - fresh, briny and tasty. My wife's foie gras was equally tasty. Our mains - her veal and my Guinea... More

If you're keen on good restaurants and visiting Bayeux, just book a table in La Rapiere. I had a three course dinner (duck terrine, guinea fowl and cheese) all of which was lovely. There's nothing to complain about food, really.. The restaurant has nice decor and feels very warm and cozy. All waiting staff members were very sweet and kind.

My husband and I ate here our last night in Bayeux, and we were disappointed...only because we weren't going to be staying longer in order to eat there again! Everything we ordered was fantastic; I don't think you could go wrong with anything on the menu. And we both had the cheesecake for dessert, which was, I think, one of... More

Wonderful food made this the ideal place to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The staff were friendly and attentive without being intrusive. There are just three menus to choose from and we chose the least expensive. This did not mean we had to make any compromises with the quality of the meal however. It was superb. I often struggle to eat... More

Having booked ahead (fortunately) based on the excellent reviews and advice we had read on Tripadvisor, we found that this was more than just a memorable meal - it was a really great dining experience. The welcome was very warm indeed and the service throughout was attentive, friendly, informal - and thoughtful. For example, my "trou normand" of apple sorbet... More

Traveling with a group of friends and the hotel staff recommended we check out La Rapiere! We were not sorry at all! We were treated to an amazing 5 course meal of authentic French food. Ordered an robust Bordeaux to have with dinner, then proceeded with a cold soup, a starter for each, sorbet in between the starter and the... More
