Stopped in on a weeknight and they were able to fit us in without much trouble, though I'd suggest reservations. Service and food was excellent, nice wine list reasonably priced by American standards. Not a lot of tables inside, and you're in fairly close company, but not uncomfortably so. Multiple menu options, broad range of choices, and excellently prepared.

A busy and popular little restaurant with brisk service from the friendly owner and her staff making it an enjoyable experience to eat here. The food is not sophisticated but well prepared and nicely presented. Rustic food, not fine dining. The two fixed menus offered a good range of dishes and an interesting range of wines were available. Compared with... More

Tucked away just off Rue du Vaugueux lies Rue Graindorge with Le Bouchon on the lhs. The restaurant is small, probably with ten tables on the inside, and four or five on the outside. On entering we were greeted by a friendly polite lady who spoke good English. She explained the menu in detail, from starter to sweet, taking great... More

We dropped in one evening around 7 without a reservation and were seated within 10 minutes. The tables were small and in close proximity to one another but this was overcome by the very nice couples we were seated between (one from Canada and the other from the UK). An excellent menu with both prix fixe and a la carte... More

A small restaurants with very tiny tables. Filled to the top. Don’t book don’t eat. But is it French market cuisine, cuisine du pays. Simple and unpretentious, but very well cooked. Friendly service, despite the buzz. And comparing with other places where we had already eaten the price of the menu is cheaper than the ones of identical quality. Menu... More

Small friendly restaurant near the Castle. We had a great meal. The menu is varied - but to suit all kinds of tastes.

Went there in June - excellent choice. Food is very well prepared, menus are original, and price reasonable (with menu and drink you should not pay more than 30 euros) I like their choice of regional food, and the setting - small family place, totally authentic. Staff is very friendly and welcoming. Will definitely come again if I visit the... More

We reserved a table on the advice of previous reviews and dragged ourselves out for dinner after a long day and no sleep - completely and utterly worth it. The food is reasonably priced - two set menus, the most expensive is 33€. If you want you can drop or add dishes to adjust the cost. Our waitress was the... More

The restaurant was very busy and we managed to get a late sitting on the evening we were in Caen. The staff were friendly, helpful and interested in the food and their clients, being attentive but not too imposing. There are two well-priced set menus and we all ordered differently and everything we ordered was delicious. If I were to... More

Although the restaurant was very busy nothing was too much trouble for the Patronne Corinne, and she made us feel special. The meal and the service was excellent and a typically French restaurant experience. It is quite a small restaurant and many people were turned away so it is advisable to reserve a table.
