What a team. Chef and waiter were the only two staff. We had a great wine Umbi colomby. I think it was called. Waiter was smiling happy chatty and funny. He even, without asking brought water for our dog lulu. Service was quick and food was excellent. It was packed but waiter didn't appear to be under pressure at all.... More

We tried to get a reservation at L'Achimie the previous night but the restaurant was booked. Now I can see why. We were greeted by the chef's wife who efficiently waited on all the customers. From starter to dessert the food was wonderful. I chose the tempura shrimp for a starter, the veal for a main and sabayon for dessert.... More

Based on Trip Advisor reviews, we dined here while biking in France. We had an incredible meal. I unfortunately had the sole which was not de-boned. I found it hard to manage, but that was my fault -- not the restaurant's. The starters was terrific and the dessert was out of this world. I had a taste of several of... More

This was by far one of the best meals we have eaten in a long time. A small restaurant with only two staff working (waiter and chef) yet far better than many high end restaurants I have been to in other cities. The service was excellent - friendly, quick and attentive, and the food was wonderful. Unusual flavours and presented... More

While on holiday in Normandy, we had a fantastic lunch at L'Alchimie during our day in Bayeux. All the positive reviews we read ahead of time were borne out by our experience. It is a lovely restaurant and was very welcoming of our family, composed of my husband and myself, his parents, and our two girls (ages 3 years and... More

Our first night there, reservations were full, so we made a reservation for the following night. We ordered the 24 and 32 euro menu, with the main being pork and veal, so we can try a variety. Both were good. The dishes were presented with "decorations". Although presentation is important, the taste is what matters I think. We liked the... More

The food was very good. I had the pork and my husband veal. There was only one server and he did an amazing job, but the restaurant needed another server. We ate at another fine dining restaurant that we liked more, but this one came in a very close second.

Loads of restaurants to choose from in Bayeux, so after a bit if research we settled on L'Alchimie and can thoroughly recommend, it deserves the high TripAdvisor rating. The plat du jour at lunch is great value 2 or 3 courses at just €12/18, food was fresh and tasty and nicely presented, portions not massive (so we managed all 3... More

We sat outdoors when we ate here, and had a lovely experience. Though the one server seemed to be taking care of the whole restaurant, we never felt neglected. The food was good, and reasonably priced.
