Booked La Rapiere before we left for France, Linda Boudet was very helpful via email in handling the booking. Somewhat surprised at how intimate the place is, so booking is pretty essential. But what a treat we had? Amazing good value choice of menus, fabulous food with locally-sourced ingredients and excellent service with just the right time left between courses.... More

We loved everything!! The location is down an alley and you enter a small intimate dining room, very cozy. The menu is superb!! We went for the 4-course prix fix. The owner, a charming beautiful young woman is almost enough reason to go!! Her laugh and smile still radiates in my mind. Truly a special meal. I will remember this... More

We did not have a reservation but the owner said we would have enough time before the next reservation. Service was terrific. We never had to wait for any thing. The food was delicious. We had the sea bass for our entre and it was wonderful. Wish we could go back.

In my opinion, this is the best restaurant in Bayeux. Delicious authentic (rich and creamy!) local cuisine served in a cozy, old building tucked away on a quiet street in charming, central Bayeux. Typical of the region, service is friendly and warm - a welcome change from Paris! Reservations are a must, particularly on summer weekends. Very good value for... More

You may not find this restaurant in passing as it is off one of the main streets in Bayeux, down a side alley, so we relied totally on the Tripadvisor reviews and a recommendation from a national newspaper. And all we can say is the reviews are deserved!!!!!!!! We stopped for their lunch menu en route to Cherbourg for a... More

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.
