A group of us visited this restaurant on our first night in Bayeux. The service was superb from the start. We were not show a menu, simply a blackboard with the days options. Apparently the menu changes daily. We opted for the owners recommendations for wine with the courses. The rose was very refreshing and the red was delicious. The... More

I chose this place for dinner purely on the basis of its Trip Advisor ranking, so it's only right that I should add to that! This is a beautiful little place - more an extensive wine shop than restaurant, which gave it a unique feel. The set menu (€18 excl. wine) was great value. All three courses were good rather... More

I find it astonishing that this 'restaurant' is no.2 on tripadvisor. Having a set menu can only work if the food is exceptionally good. The food we had was very mediocre - prawns, smoked salmon and melon for starter, tasteless lamb stew for main, with a shop-bought stale custard slice for pudding. Over- priced wine. Really can't understand why everyone... More

We came here based on TA reviews. The 18euro dinner is very good value and the novelty of not choosing all the courses was interesting. There was a choice of 2 mains luckily, as I do not like sausage dishes. My husband chose it and found it very strong but different! We enjoyed the meal, but as we drank the... More

Do not pass this small gem by while in Bayeux. WOW! What a treasure. It looks like a wine shop and it is partly, but go for the food - and some wine too, of course! The menu is set every day. We began with a lovely glass of sparkling pear cider and some charcuterie. Then on to a spectacularly... More

We happened upon Le Volet Qui Penche during the busy D-Day celebrations week, and ended up having a really enjoyable evening. The set menu was three courses of delicious, proper homemade food, and the accompanying wine a perfect pairing. The place was packed to the rafters with diners of multiple nationalities (only one French-speaking table), whom our two indefatigable hosts... More

We ate here twice in one week. The restaurant deserves its high ranking on tripadvisor along with la rapiere. You need to check the blackboard menu as it is very limited but the food is good and the place has a good atmosphere. Apricot tiramisu was a standout!

My wife and I wanted to sit down and just have a glass of wine after a long day, and then we found this place. Great service, great wine, and the kids got ice-cream from across the street.

My husband and I, along with two friends, thoroughly enjoyed an evening at Pierre-Henri's Cave Bistro. We were fortunate on several counts that night. Two dinner options were available and my husband selected the beef dish and the three ladies opted for a white fish with the accompanying sides which were delicious. Too, the bread served with our meal was... More

The only problem with this gorgeous restaurant is that we discovered it on our last night in town. When we first walked in we were instantly greeted by the owner of the cafe, with a large and infectious smile. We were sat quickly, and given a free welcome drink ( can every restaurant in the world do this please?). The... More
