My husband and I had filets here and they were really good. We did not have a reservation for a week night and did not need one. Service was very good.

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.

Our first visit to Caen and I had already read great reviews of this restaurant and we were looking forward to an amazing meal. It did not disappoint at all! We went for the €32 option which includes a starter from either the main menu or the specialities, a main course and a sweet. I opted for the carpaccio of... More

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
