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

Great location in centre of town, great food, service & a really nice room. Very welcoming staff. The deep fried prawns are not really tempura but really are excellent and highly recomended. Good wine list. Do try, it's not the cheapest in Bayeux but the best rarely are.

We ate at this restaurant based upon the previous reviews. We did not have a problem getting a table on a Friday night in October. One od us enjoyed the price fixe and the other chose from the menu. The food was as promised.

This is the last of our 5 nights in Bayeux, and we are sorry that we did not visit L'Alchimie on the first night, because I am sure we would have visited it again. We had a prix fixe menu for 24 Euros that was delicious and as beautifully presented as any gourmande menu. For our entree, we had a... More

I would unhesitatingly recommend this restaurant to anybody in search of lovely food at a sensible price and with wines that you can enjoy without busting your bank account. It's small but efficiently run. We were six gentlemen of a certain age doing a Normandy tour and this is the perfect place to round off a busy day. Madame who... More

We found this place a few blocks from our hotel. It was the best meal we had during a 10 day trip to France. Lovely coupe owns and runs the place. The best restaurant in Bayeux for the price

A wonderful little restaurant in Bayeaux run by a husband and wife team. The food was tasty and had beautiful presentation. Alexandra, the wife, was a joy to talk with and so helpful in understanding the menu! If you are in Bayeaux, don't miss this restaurant!!!

We ordered from the prix fixe menu and the food was fantastic! The wine selection was very good - we enjoyed an excellent bottle of brouilly. Prices are quite reasonable. I highly recommend this restaurant.

This delightful little restaurant in Bayeux serves extraordinarily good food in a very pleasant atmosphere. The menu is imaginative and side dishes (potatoes, vegetables) are remarkably interestingly prepared and delicious. Service was excellent. I highly recommend it. We would go back in a heartbeat.
