small restaurant run by a young woman and her husband. He is the chef and she handles the guests in an impressive and efficient way. quite amazing actually as when we were there the restaurant was full and she smoothly handled everything. The food is inspired and very fresh and creatively served. We sat in the back room and felt... More

We tried L'Alchimie based upon the many positive reviews on Tripadvisor. We found the location easily, the premises were lovely and the service superb. We were challenged with a menu that was heavy on fish, fois gras, and terrines to find meal suitable for our teenager. This menu is great for more adventurous eaters but perhaps not for those with...

We recently ate and had the menu 34€. Tbh, having had a few meals recently and choosing the set menu option this had to be one of the best! We were greeted by a friendly lady (assumed the owner) and her cheery husband. Whilst the restaurant was pretty busy and it was just her serving, we still found the service... More

This place was highly recommended by friends who had visited Bayeux last year. We were very disappointed. Our osso bucco was dry and tough and one of our desserts was very substandard. The server brought us another choice but still charged us for the first one. This was very expensive for the portions and probably the worst meal we had... More

We enjoyed a perfect evening here while visiting the Normandy coast--one of our favorite meals of our trip! Unique, seasonal dishes with interesting ingredient combinations. Well presented but also simple, with a focus on fresh food. Also a great location and good value!

we looked for something a little up market from the usual menu formule, and checked out two of the more upmarket Bayeux eateries. We chose l'Alchimie as we preferred the choice of items, and found it very good. The food is modern, cleanly presented and perfectly prepared. Service is excellent. We highly recommend this restaurant as well above the usual... More
