We didn't anticipate that we would be wowed by the quality of their offerings - we were. My husband and I both ordered their tuna entree and enjoyed a few appetizers desserts and wine, all for a very reasonable cost. I cannot remember exactly, but we are cost conscious and felt we dined very, very well. The ambience is simple,... More

Our third restaurant when in Bayeux and probably the best we tried. The restaurant was quiet the evening we visited but I gather that booking in advance is normally required. We had a first rate meal for 88 euro including wine and kirs. Would be my first choice if we visit again. Less formal than some but we liked the... More

We visited L'Alchimie on a Monday in December - very off season, and walked in to a friendly welcome. We opted for a 24 Euro and a 36 Euro set menu and wine. I had the tomato and goat cheese crumble - well presented and delicious. Followed with 'Grandmas Cuisine' - pork on the bone with a wine sauce, a... More

we came across this restaurant on our last night here, and thinking thrifty thoughts, I wanted to find somewhere a bit cheaper and am so glad now that I was overruled by my better half. The service was friendly and helpful with the meal and wine selection, and the food could not have been better with faultless presentation, would recommend... More

What a surprise a small little restaurant where the service was excellent and the food was amazing. Will go there again when we return to Bayeux, France.

I went to L'Alchimie with my family for our first night in town and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The food and service were excellent. While the cooking techniques were very traditional, the menu felt innovative, fresh and interesting. Situated along one of the main streets in town, the location is ideal. We will certainly be returning during our next visit... More

We had three meals in the charming town of Bayeux. We tried the more formal, multi course meals such as served in La Rapiere and we were delighted but here there was much less fanfare and for our last meal in town this restaurant hit the mark. The lovely husband and wife team made us feel very welcome, the food... More
