Disappointed

I came here because of the glowing reviews, only to find my steak and the filet de merlan of my mother both tasteless.

An unpretentious little find - upstairs restaurant better than the ground floor entry appeared. Excellent steaks and salad - a nice change after lots of wonderful French food!! Extensive menu, good wine list and helpful wait staff

Visiting from the states, we stumbled upon this restaurant after a day of combing the museums and Normandy beaches. What luck! I had the filet, my son had the ribeye, and my wife had the salmon. All were superb. The atmosphere has a local, unpretentious feel to it. It's owned by a young couple(the wife is the chef) who live... 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

This restaurant had been recommended to us for the quality of its steak and we were not disappointed with beautiful home made Pate followed by good steak and fries. My only criticism is that one of us had to wait for their meal - which arrived as the others were finishing. Affordable and tasty.

We arrived in Caen looking for a quality French Meal experience and got it in one. Must try steaks and sauces.The service from Rapheal and Alain in particular means we will be going back some day. All the best from the Midlands.

We arrived late at Sunday night at around 7. Everything is closed here on Sunday night, with only a few restaurants open. We walked around and it's very difficult for us to find a quality restaurant. Finally, we came to this restaurant, which is just opposite to the church of saint jean-pierre. We ordered 2 sets of dinner. The ham... More

Good and affordable meat restaurant in the center of Caen. The restaurant has a "meat cellar" where you can see the restaurant from the meat hang and tenderized. Good range of different types of meat. Unfortunately, the restaurant does not manufacture all the sauces himself but buys such Bearnaise sauce
