A fine restaurant/bistro in Bayeux

I enjoyed my visit, but I personally found the menu rather limited. The food was quite good but not up to the level I expected based on prior TA reviews. In fine dining restaurants, I guess those expectations are also inflated based on my prior visits to this region of France. To be fair, nothing... read more

Good restaurant. They are very efficient. It is not a good restaurant to go to if you want to practice your french, so that lessened the experience for me, but if you want to speak English, it would be good.

We were very fortunate to find a table at this wonderful little restaurant as it was the ultimate dining experience of our two weeks in France. Owners Alexandra and Edouard offer that great bistro experience that France is famous for! She runs the front end and he is the chef- and they were the majority of the staff. The service... More

After the recommendations of the dishes we just took the courses we were advised - this was very good choise. Excellent quality of courses - they make very good fish. Also... 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
