Recommended by our hotel owner. We should have paid more attention to the Trip Adviser rating. Hard to understand how a French restaurant can make such a tasteless French onion soup. Both of our meals were devoid of flavor. At least we got out of there for under 60 euros. Avoid like thr plague.

One of the worst restaurants I have experienced - although I didn't really experience it as we walked out after 40 minutes without service! Shown to the back room upstairs, given the menu and then ignored, despite trying to make eye contact with waitress. It was oppressively hot and noisy and after 40 minutes we gave up and walked out.... More

We found this restaurant by chance and arrived as it opened. We hadn't booked but the staff were very welcoming. Although we ordered in French the waitresses all spoke excellent English. We had the 3 course menu and the house wine. French onion soup which was excellent with plenty of flavour unlike previous comments! We enjoyed it so much that... More

We ate at this restaurant both nights of our stay in the lovely town of Bayeux. It is right next to the surprisingly huge cathedral in this little town. We found the service to be consistently friendly while keeping in mind that this is not a fast-food restaurant. In addition to traditional French dishes with a focus on flavors from... More

One of the worst experience in so many year of travelling around the world. First discussion about the table (we had a reservation): just near the toilette (with very little space in between). When they saw we're leaving, they offered us another table in a slightly better position. After an hour of waiting with the waitress showing all her intolerance... More

Enjoyed our first dinner at L’Assiette Normande so much we came back the next night. Excellent unpretentious French food, with cheerful and friendly service, - admittedly slow at times, but they were very busy with queues at the door Friday and Saturday (August). Booking was a good idea. Do not be put off by the slightly dowdy exterior and its... More

A good meal overall. Nice house wine. One contributor below has sneered about "flank steak": actually, this is called bavette steak, and is a typically French cut. The one I had was lovely, and properly cooked (though could have been a little rarer).

There’s a good choice on the menu: à la carte or ‘menus’. The food was good and well-presented. The portions may be on the small side for someone who is very hungry. The waiting staff was very pleasant & worked hard. However, it was noisy and the service was slow (the restaurant was quite full and we were seated on... More

We dined here on a Sunday night primarily because several of our other choices were closed. We had a very mixed result. We were amongst the first to arrive at the 7:00PM opening and were initially seated right next to the front door. I asked for a quieter better placed table and we were moved - thank goodness. The place... More

I stayed in Bayeux around six times now and normally I go to La Marsala, however being a Sunday it was closed. We looked around and came across L'Assiette Normande and was glad we did. We had to queue outside which is always a good sign and we didn't have to wait too long for a table. It proved to... More
