Gastronomically Delightful

Great service and food worthy of their Michelin Star... We chose Chefs surprise 4 course option with wine pairing and we were blown away...... No more to say, look at the pictures and do not hesitate to book here if you love food. Pricy, but well worth it......

Most dishes were very good but one entree was ill conceived. Service is a bit amatuerish for a Michelin starred restaurant.

excellent cuisine, each dish is a masterpiece. we caught a waiter trainee , but everything was fine. Foie gras - is beyond praise . dishes are large enough not to care about the famine after the visit. quite expensive

Very good food and excellent service. We enjoyed our first night there so much we returned the following evening. We highly recommend it. This is all I have to say. I wish Trip Advisor would stop requiring a minimum of characters per review. I would like to write about all the great places I visited, ate at, and slept at... More

We ordered the tasting menu. The dishes are mostly seafood they were creative, well presented and delicious. Bread and desert are also excellent. The service is just fine.The breakfast the next morning was also excellent. We loved their home made jam and baking goods as well. We have a great dinning experience here. Highly recommended if you are in Caen.

Brilliant, brilliant food! My wife and I went for the 93€ Ivan menu and it was delightful. All in all 8 courses and each one was brilliantly done. The restaurant itself is not over the top silver service. It's a great balance of formal/informal. By the end of the evening we were learning French for culinary terms and helping our... More

My wife and I were there for dinner. We've got a perfect experience, both the food and the service were impeccable. We had the Menu Confiance, which the chef surprises you. And what a surprise! Amuse bouche, appetizer, fish. meat and dessert. For mere 52 euros, plus 30 euros for the wine pairing. The food was light, smooth, delicious. Presentation,... More

We went for the Tasting Menu at 93€, with accompanying wines at 42€. The meal was outstanding and it ranked with the best of New York. This restaurant deserves at least a second Michelin Star. I urge you to go and have the meal of a lifetime.

Fantastic food, a serious contender for a second michelin star. The menus are fairly priced, I had the grand tasting menu at 93€, which is a lot less than you pay at similar restaurants.
