Delicious dinner

We came to the area where there were many restaurants and chose L'Insolite because they allowed us to come in before 7pm. What a good choice! Our waiter was delightful (and spoke English very well). The salmon with cooked potatoes and the green salad were outstanding. I recommend this restaurant.

We all enjoyed our evening meal here, finding it by accident. Good choice of galettes and crepes and a lovely Kir Normand with peach.

We ended up in this restaurant after a long visit in the city. Service was warm and kind, food was excellent. At first glimpse it could seem average, but the food is worth, guaranteed. I highly recommend the galettes de ble noir and the regular sweet crêpes, expecially the crepe au miel avec chantilly. Superbe!

This was our first night in Bayeaux. We walked from our chateau/hotel. We ate outside in the courtyard. The place was busy with families & couples. We ordered our meals "menu" style - which in France, means three or four courses. The hard cider was fabulous, and the savory galettes were filled with delicious surprises: camembert cheese, a sunny-side up... More

The galette and the crepe were nothing special..the galette filling was very good but the galette itself was not great..the crepe was good but the chocolate and the pear were cold. The pear cider was excellent though!

The restaurant is very clean and well-presented, but the meal was nowhere near the standard it should have been. My galette arrived untidily presented on the plate and its content was frankly, a greasy mess. Part of it was incredibly salty, as if the seasoning had been dropped in one corner and not distributed evenly. We were the only customers... More

We wanted to have lunch at the "Moulin de la Galette" by the river, but it was full and an hour to wait for a free table, so we walked around Bayeux and we ended up at l'Insolite. It looks small from outside but they have an outdoor area at the back. This area is al fresco type, but has... More

We have to stop here every time we are in town, we have yet to disappointed. I had the tuna and cream galette this time and it was rocking. If you looking for a crepe or galette pass all the other by and head straight here.

I came across this lovely creperie one afternoon in Bayeux. I was lucky to be served because they close after lunch until the evening. Because I was on my own they said it was ok. I had a savoury tuna crepe and it was delicious. I would definately recommend this place.
