Made this booking following recommendations from trip advisor. Was not disappointed. It's an eclectic little place, run by a guy who is frantically busy throughout the service, very courteous and keen to please We were offered a pear sparking wine on arrival which was very quaffable! The menu is a fairly fixed three course formule. Our dinner was excellent. Simple... More

I was lucky enough to go back to a restaurant that I had visited in 2013 and enjoyed with my husband. A year later, my mother, sister and I took a trip to Bayeux and I made a point of securing a reservation at Le Volet qui Penche for a second visit. We were not disappointed.

The staff are very passionate and knowledgeable about the extensive array of French wines that they stock. We spent an evening here and while we didn't have a full dinner, we did have a delicious meet and cheese platter. We were very impressed with the wines that were recommended to us and would have loved to have had time to... More

We chose this restaurant based on the reviews on trip advisor. It was a little difficult to find but getting lost was worth the wait. We were greeted by a very friendly gentlemen at the front door who quickly informed us that he could easily accommodate our party of four. We asked for suggestions and we agreed to try the... More

We had the best meal here on our 2week vacation in France. The service was great, the owner was lots of fun. The wine and food were awesome. Will definitely be back on our next trip

We wanted a reasonably light lunch and found this little place in Bayeux, mainly thanks to Trip Advisor reviews. When we asked to see a wine list we were told "It is all around you." Basically, you choose a wine from the shelf and each bottle has written on it the price per bottle to drink in or take away... More

My wife and I loved this restaurant. The owner and staff made the experience inviting and easy. You can choose the meal of the day and paired suggested wines, or you can choose your own options. The wine options are outstanding. One of our favorite meals in France. If you are in Bayeux and looking for a lovely meal, this... More

The reception is warm; the host is very friendly, enthousiastic and welcoming (in French). The food is okay, but it is not overwelming. The wine selection, however, is overwelming and we left with some extra bottles. All in all a very good experience.
