The restaurant is quite intimate. The food is absolutely fantastic; in particular the puddings, not to be missed!

We visited this restaurant near the tail end of a three week trip when we were tired of eating out. The husband and wife team did a great job of modifying our meal to include more vegetables. Everything was delicious and thankfully not too heavy.

My family and I where looking for a special place to have dinner for our last day in Bayeux. The L´Alchimie was an excelent choice and we had a wonderful time. If you are looking to save money, prices can be a little bit high but it is well worth it since the restaurants offers high quality dining. I was... More

Aussie couple on a road trip through France in the off season. Perused menu from the street and turned out to be the best meal we have had in France so far. Hostess was very kind in providing olives when I commented that I was unable to have goat's cheese. Trip of dips were delicious. Mains very flavoursome. My husband... More

I decided to try this place based on the reviews and we were the first couple there on a quiet Monday night in the offseason in Bayeux. While most restaurants are closed on Monday, L'Alchemie ended up being one of the best meals in France. Fresh from a week in Paris, the tasting menu prix fix was a delight and... More

This was our best meal in France, without question. The restaurant is elegant and small, so reservations are recommended. The server was very nice and friendly, who made suggestions regarding the menu (listen to her). The meal was creative and, like I said, absolutely wonderful. Our final bill (for two) was just under $100, considering the exchange rate. It was... More

Recommended by our hotel, this meal did not disappoint. Although the menu is limited, there's something for most tastes. All our dishes were extremely tasty.

We visited on a wet Tuesday evening in October so the restaurant was fairly quiet. However, we received a warm welcome from the lady and the food was excellent. Thoroughly enjoyed the food plus the wine recommendation. We will certainly visit the next time we are in Bayeaux.

Three couples, we arrived shortly after the restaurant opened on a Friday night. All of the tables filled rather quickly. The service was prompt and more than courteous. All six meals were excellent. The wine was very good. The young lady, who was the entire front of the house, was not only efficient but friendly. The young man emerged from... More

Husband cooks to perfection. Wife handles the entire restaurant. She serves in a relaxed and friendly manner and we never had to wait for anything. They are magicians. The food is just beautiful. Great, great evening.
