I Should Have Ordered the Pizza

We stopped by this little place on the waterfront in Cherbourg because of their selection of mussels - and of course you have to have seafood while by the sea (right). Well, the mussels were served in 1 Kg buckets (over 2 pounds). And although they were good, I could not help but notice all of... read more

I did not have the pizza, so I can only comment on what I had. The pizza looked decent. Unfortunately, the charcuterie plate I got was made with meat that had dry crusted edges. I know that some of the meats are aged and the edges are firm, but this was not aged, it was old and tasted like it... More

This is the worst restaurant I've been to, in Cherbourg. The one good thing about our visit to this place is that we weren't the customers the owner shouted on. I didn't even know it was possible to make a mess of french fries. They must have fried them the day before and reheated them. Everything was deep frozen. The... More

Having arrived in Cherbourg by ferry at 8pm on Saturday night, we wandered round trying to find somewhere to eat. The first couple of places we tried were already full and then we stumbled across La Mistral where we took the final empty table. We waited quite a long time to be served and then the food took a long... More

Have visited this small restaurant on the water front overlooking the harbour on a number of occasions. Each time the food has been really good with quick and friendly service. I particularly like their Fruits de Mer and my friends this time had a blue steak and a duck dish. All were exactly to our liking with reasonable prices. Will... More

When you get a bit bored with the (almost) universal offering of Moules Frites on the Cherbourg waterfront then it is sometimes good to try something Italian. And in Cherbourg, where better than Le Mistral right on the edge of the harbour. The food was good, plentiful and inexpensive and the service friendly. interestingly, the meal commenced with a small... More
