We had a lovely meal here - delicious food and wine, and good value. Lovely ingredients well put together, and not too heavy at all so we could happily enjoy 3 courses. Wine was good too, and we liked the bustling atmosphere. Would definitely recommend!

Very nice little restaurant in the old town of Caen. You need to book as this is a small family business. I knew this restaurant from old time when it used to be the old owner. I didn't see the difference with the new owners! Same type of food, from Normandy, good quality, good prices, good service. If you are... More

My wife had researched this restaurant before we left the UK. We were not disappointed. It is a small venue. We thankfully, having read reviews, popped in and booked a table for the night we were there. They were turning people away later. The menu is on a chalk board. The lady greeting us spoke English but didn't need to... More

After a day spent visiting WW II landing sites, we thoroughly enjoyed this restaurant--unpretentious authentic French bistro--food was imaginative and beautifully prepared--wine list offered broad choice at bargain prices--service outstanding--Corinne never stops smiling and she obviously enjoys her role.If you are in Caen, do not miss this restaurant.

This restaurant was recommended to us by our Viator guide and she could not have been more correct. There were two menus and we chose the $22.00 one that included an entree, a main and a voice of dessert or cheese plate. We also managed to finish a carafe of their house Bordeaux which was excellent. My wife started with... More

We chose this place because we liked the way it looked and only later realized it was highly recommended by our Lonely Planet guide. The recommendation is well-earned indeed: everything was perfect - from the wide choice of dishes to the large selection of wines by the glass to the friendly and attentive service. Tip: do drop by a few... More

La Bouchon du Vaugeaux – Caen Fantastic food, lovely, smiley wait staff, great wine – what’s not to like? My foie gois was delicious and my partner loved his main course of fillet of bass. Desserts were great (try the carrot sorbet – it’s wonderful!) and the wine suggestion worked really well. But the highlight was definitely the staff –... More

This place served one of the best meals I've ever eaten in France in 20 years of visiting there! It was a bit too warm inside due to the unexpected heatwave but Corinne kept us supplied with plenty of water. She was extremely helpful in translating the menu into English for us and couldn't have done more to help us.... More

This small restaurant was recommended to us by a guide at Omaha Beach! We went there on a Wednesday night. Despite the fact that it appeared to be booked the owner made room for us. The meal was wonderful. Well prepared food, reasonably priced with personalized service would be our general description of this restaurant. My wife who is not... More
