Once again Trip Advisor reviews recommended a great spot in Caen. We ate there with our 18 year old son and we each enjoyed our meal. The location on the marina was nice as we ate on the terrace. And my son's steak was delicious as it was part of a 3 course price fixe menu. I enjoyed the bass... More

We had the pleasure of dining here on our way home to the UK from the Dordogne. What a find. My wife and I shared a trio of seafood as as starter and it was terrific. Prawns, moules, clams and squid all cooked to perfection on the grill and covered in garlic and butter. My wife had a main of... More

We went there after reading some positive posts on Trip Advisor and it has been better than expected. Waiters are friendly and very active and we got excellent appetizers and a large meal of very good grilled meat and grilled fresh fish. The basque wine a lyle bit "heavy" but in general a place with a good value. Go there!

More French Basque than Spanish, but none the worse for that. There were 4 of us and we all chose from the 20€ set menu. The choice was good and all our courses were well cooked and enjoyable. I would recommend the calves' kidneys and the rice pudding. We had a bottle of French wine which at 20€ was the... More

Based on TA reviews and the ability to book easily on-line through TA and The Fork, we eagerly anticipated our dinner at Bistrot Basque after a day-long event that was the reason we were in Caen in the first place. Imagine our surprise when, the day after making the reservation, we received an email that the restaurant (not The Fork... More
