Great steak near Chateau de Caen and the Church of Saint-Pierre

In our group of five people, we all ordered filet and we all loved it. A small salad was included on the plate along with a side such as mashed potatoes, French fries, or you could even substitute to have more salad. The staff were friendly and helpful. The restaurant is very convenient to the... read more

My husband has been coming here every year with the army for remembrance duties and I've heard stories about how wonderful it was for years. Finally I get to come here and experience it. All I can say it it's everything my husband said the beef tartare is beautiful, I'm usually a rare girl with fillet and my husband advised... More

We stayed at the Best Western Moderne and this restaurant was recommended by the woman at the desk. We walked a few blocks to this restaurant and were not disappointed. My wife had a steak and I had a short ribs dish, we both loved it. Prices were very reasonable and service was great. I highly recommend.

We popped in here for lunch and were pleasantly surprised! The staff were excellent, friendly, efficient and helpful. There were 6 of us in our party and we all had steak and frites which was delicious - highly recommended!!

I'm learning French, so I thought a restaurant that offered an English Menu with French staff would help - how wrong was I! Initially we walked in and was offered the table by the door, I gestured that I would like another table not in the walkway, but I was told there wasn't any, bearing in mind I had just... More

A group of seven of us were visiting the area and made a reservation here, nice view of the cathedral out of the window (if you like that sort of thing) Overall a good meal, nice selection of food, one of our party was a vegetarian and that proved a little difficult. What did cause an issue was the lack... More

Visited here as part of a large organised group. We had a set menu with a vegetarian option. This was well served, after a little confusion about the veggie stuff (plain salad is NOT a meal!) and they cared about how people wanted their steak. There was some initial confusion about our booking as well, which made us panic a... More

A group of friends and i were in the area on a biking trip and decided to try this place as a change from the food in hotels. Frankly we couldn't be happier with a meal. The fois gras was superb and is made in house. Steaks were awesome and we even received some free wine because of a delay... More

We visited this restaurant in 2012 and if anything it's got better, we booked the restaurant as a surprise for our friends 50th during our d day battlefields tour, the service is excellent, the food even better and incredibly good value too, we will return for sure.
