We ended up at this nice restaurant, because of the awkward opening and closing hours France has. It offers meals all day long, a great plus. The food we ordered was quite average. I had a steak, and asked for it to be medium. It was a rather thin cut and came well done, hearty and tasty, but a bit... More

My wife and I had the worst steaks in years here. The steaks looked very good but when we tried to cut the first bite, it became clear that was futile. We kept trying to find some small part of the steak we could carve out, but no luck. Our waiter was no where to be found, so we asked... More

Ate outside and had no trouble finding a table in early September. Recommend the seafood or cheese crepes and cider- go for the less sweet cider. My husband and I never felt rushed at dinner and our server was a very pleasant young man. A good dinner at a reasonable price. The atmosphere all depends upon the crowd around you.... More

My husband and I had a most unfortunate experience at this restaurant today. From the moment we walked in, the waiter was incredibly rude to us. He directed us to an undesirable table although many others were available. When we asked about another table, he simply turned his back on us. Unfortunately, he was also the waiter assigned to our... More

We only had one night in Bayeaux and took the day to visit local attractions. We had considered other restaurants but opted for the Reine Mathilde because it was in the hotel in which we were staying. Dinner was great and the service quite good. They have a lovely outdoor area and with the wonderful weather it was an enjoyable... More

To the point ... this was a cool place but on this particular day, this was not the best place to "chill out". We sat outside for lunch on the patio in excellent weather on chairs that were almost comfortable competing for service with a standing room only crowd. It was August and VERY busy (of course). Service was understandably... More

Being relatively unimpressed with eateries in genreal in Bayeux, we stumbled upon this place and were a bit wary due to the touristy location and the big red awning. The food was good not great, but well priced and well served with some creative local dishes. We returned for breakfast a few days later and it was most adequate and... More

The site says it all to the seasoned traveller - directly opposite a cathedral, packed with tourists, staff who shouted at you in French, people rushed to their seats, chased for an order, food arrives ASAP, the bill is slammed down and we left as quickly as possible. Prices were kind of reasonable, but the site says it all, tourist... More

This was a nice, affordable restaurant, a great place for an authentic Normandy meal, a nice glass of wine or beer and a great little outdoor patio in which to enjoy the above. The staff is nice, too. We had stayed in this hotel the night before and had been dropped-off by our battlefield guide so we could pick-up our... More
