Very nice

Small place so have reservations. They were turning people away. I thought the menu choices were small. This seemed like a husband and wife deal, both of whom were very talented.

Fantastic food, fabulous service. Each dish was beautifully presented, looking like a photograph from a magazine and was a delight to the taste buds. Can't rate this restaurant highly enough!

After a long but amazing day visiting the Normandy World War II sites we had the good fortune to stumble into this restaurant just after it opened for the evening dinner. The entire experience was incredible. Could not speak more highly of the food, the service or the location. Just superlatives all around.

As an old and weary American traveler, I am always suspect of (even and especially) high end hotel staff recommendations. Don't send me somewhere that will pay you a percentage of my bill. This time I listened and I am so grateful. This place needs to be more highly rated on TripAdvisor. It's pretty, contemporary, creative, innovative, lots of "wows"... More

Everything about this small and intimate restaurant worked well, from the unusual sardine pate amuse bouche to the innovative appetizer of tomato and Camembert crumble to the Saint Pierre fish to the beef fillet. Service was impeccable, and the waitperson had just the right amount of warmth, which was welcoming but not overbearing. The menu is small but there is... More

We had a party of seven (including three kids 8, 10 and 12), and I think we were the last walk-ins on the night we dined at L'Alchimie. The service was extremely friendly, the atmosphere wonderful, and the food downright heavenly. My advice would be to have a Kir Normand, the pate, and then whatever the special is. I can't... More

We made sure we booked and weren't disappointed. Very good food, beautifully prepared. Like a number of Bayeux restaurants service was personal and attentive and we had an enjoyable meal. Please don't ask why I chose Gazpacho (Spanish) followed by Osso Buco (Italian) but I did and they were both good. Menu was good value with good choices.

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal at L'Alchimie. This is the third time we have been there - we always make sure we eat there whenever we visit Bayeux and the food is always great. The service is wonderful and the atmosphere is relaxed. This time I had the foie gras assortment and the beef fillet rossini - both excellent especially... More

We stumbled on this restaurant in Bayeux at lunchtime and were really impressed with it. We had no reservation but were welcomed and given a lovely table. It was quiet in the restaurant (some covers were finishing their metal as we arrived) but it was a rainy weekday in February. The menu was extensive with a la carte, board specials... More
