Based on reviews, we were expecting to have an outstanding experience. Unfortunately the reality fell a bit short of our expectations. We were seated in what seemed to be the less desirable of two rooms, closest to the front door. The ambience was diminished by the bright lights situated over our table which was in a corner near the water... More

We chose this restaurant based on Trip adviser reviews and we weren't disappointed. We were very lucky to walk in and they turned several people away. We tried booking for the rest of our stay but they were fully booked. Dining here is an experience with the complimentary morsels served between courses. Every selection was excellent and the flavours matched... More

This outstanding restaurant in quaint Bayeux featured Parisian caliber cuisine for small town prices. The attention to detail in the preparation and quality of the ingredients make this a must visit restaurant for traveling foodies. Many locals filled the small restaurant eager to try the newest Chef creations. The waiter modestly announced for their special of the day they had... More

Wow! What a fantastic restaurant. The quality of the cuisine is superb, frankly one of the best meals we have had in France. Great location and comfort. A little shame that the decor is so contemporary which detracts a little from the ambience, but not from the meal.

We booked here for our wedding anniversary having read wonderful reviews. We were not disappointed , we chose the Gourmet menu at €52 and it was exceptional , the fillet of beef was the best I have ever tasted and the whole meal was perfect with attentive but not intrusive waiting staff.

We took the 5 course menu and enjoyed a lovely diner. Very friendly waiters. Would definitely recommend. They should dim the lights a bit though, they are now too bright to creat a cozy atmosphere.
