A good place to eat in Bayeux and understandably it is very busy on some evenings so do book. The food was certainly very tasty and the service charming.

We made reservations at L'Alchimie on our first evening in Bayeux. We were the first to arrive so it was quiet and peaceful, but it wasn't long before others arrived and the restaurant was almost full. We had a most enjoyable dining experience. The server was so sweet and pleasant as well as efficient. The food was delicious and well-presented.... More

We read this was rated #2 out of the restaurants in Bayeux, and it was the only one I could get a reservation at when we arrived around 1:40pm after driving from Paris. They are super friendly, and the fish was very fresh, the prices are reasonable and the setting is contemporary bistro like. Highly recommended.

We enjoyed having dinner here during our stay in Bayeux. It is a lovely restaurant with a menu featuring typical Normandy dishes. We had the chicken which was cooked in Calvados and fresh vegetables. Well done and delicious. Locals were dining in the restaurant as well which confirmed it as a good restaurant. It was cozy, charming and conducive for... More

We had a great modern meal in the heart of Bayeux. The front of the house was incredibly nice and the food tasty with a slight twist on normal favorites like foie, salmon and pork.

We heard good news about this restaurant, so we had high expectations that were not met. Our meals were good, not great. Service was nice and attentive. Good grades for this. Not sure we would return.

According to a hotel lobby guide this restaurant was supposed to be closed on the day that we found ito be open. What great luck. The waitress was as agreeable and helpful as the food was terrific. The menu was in French and English and the waitress helped us make good choices. What a nice treat on a very rainy... More

We ate on the basis of recommendations on TripAdvisor and we're not disappointed. We had a very good meal at a reasonable price with some excellent wine. The atmosphere was friendly with attentive service. There was a good mix of different nationalities eating on the evening we visited. We would recommend this as a reliable and friendly place to eat... More
