Return visit for excellent pizzas and steaks

This restaurant is ideally located by the cathedral in Bayeux, and serves great pizzas, salads, steaks, etc. Service is friendly and efficient, and the terrace is very pleasant. Recommended for a family group like ours.

The food here was lovely, but service was incredibly slow. We were here at lunchtime and it took 2 hours to just have one course of food - I don't mind a leisurely lunch, but my hungry children struggled with the long wait for food to arrive.

We loved this cafe in a great location right next to the cathedral in Bayeux. Despite being right in the centre of this popular tourist spot the prices were very reasonable and the food was excellent. We ate here a couple of times during our holiday and loved everything we ordered. Some great pizzas but other dishes were equally good.... More

Quaint restaurant next the cathedral. Set on a quiet street, the outdoor portion is very enjoyable when the weather is nice. Be prepared, like most restaurants in Europe, and get used to the relaxed pace of wait service. The food is excellent, and the portions are generous.

We ate lunch here twice while visiting Bayeux. The service was friendly and welcoming, and we enjoyed our meals. The children's menu was extremely good value and the pizza was delicious. The portions were all a good size and the prices were decent. You get a lovely view of the cathedral from the terrace too!

Very nice meal and close to the cathedral. Met a lovely French nurse who joined our table and we got to practice our French. Meal was very tasty and good value for money.

We stopped in here after a long-ish journey from the ferry and couldn't be bothered to look around so we were thrilled when this turned out to be a lovely place to eat. Plentiful portions of tasty, home-cooked food for reasonable prices. I would definitely come back :-)

Food was fabulous, Croque Madam was gorgeous, and really lovely crepes, would recommend the Apple with Caramel Sauce and Ice-cream, Yum! If I could be a little picky I would say the... More

We ate here three times for dinner with a family of 6 including young children. The pastas, galletes, pizzas, etc. are all good. The desserts are excellent. Service is very good, food is fresh and fast. This is a real good choice for family dinning. Try the chicken in a pot and you won't be disappointed!

Overall, this restaurant has a nice ambiance, which made it a comfortable place for our first meal in France. Our teenage boys liked their meals (hamburger with a potato-cake bun and margarita pizza), but unfortunately my husband and I did not (crepes with andouille sausage). The sausage seemed flavorless with more fat than what we typically have had in the... More
