Honest, unpretentious, well prepared and pleasantly served food

Down a quiet side street, this small, family run (I guess) restaurant serves good fresh food, well cooked and well presented and at reasonable prices for Trouville. The terrine was a little dry to my taste, but nonetheless good, while the sole meuniere was one of the best pieces of fish I had... read more

May be the place and the food are fine, but the waiter (I do not know if she was also the owner) completely spoils you the experience. I prefer not revealing any detail...

We dined here on 2 evenings during our stay in Trouville, It is very small so booking is recommended, and was full both evenings. The food is well prepared and presented and there is an excellent selection of wines. It is run by a husband and wife team with the husband being the chef and wife runs front of house,... More

This is an excellent restaurant. Very small and replaced with authentic home cooking. Christiane and Gerard will host you and you feel you are eating right out of their kitchen. A tasty and authentic menu with local cuisine. Highly recommended.

My mussells aux creme starter was almost a main course in terms of quantity. 'Er indoors had the goats cheese salad which we similarly... More

This little restaurant is hidden down an unpromising side street off the pedestrianised zone. Step through the doors and you receive a lovely warm welcome, big smiles and a fantastic homely approach to service which makes such a difference! The food was excellent too. We shared an enormous mound of fresh mussels to start and finished off with beautifully cooked... More

We received a very warm welcome even though our spoken French was very limited. The owners English was very limited as well but it was all about smiles & friendly gestures and we got by. It was without a doubt one of the best meals we've ever had in Trouville or Deaville. Fish that was cooked superbly and the food... More

It was the most fun we had over dinner during the entire trip. It is a small restaurant. The husband does the cooking and the wife does the serving. They are both welcoming and homely. They have 7 tables seating upto 18-19 people. Reservations might be required for dinner. Food is fresh both for ingredients as well as for the... More

Good food, very friendly and helpful despite our lack of French. The wine list was a bit limited and the menu was short in choice but wow, everything was fresh, of the highest quality and brilliantly cooked. We really enjoyed it. Portions were big. The terrine was fab, mussels too, the steak, delicious. Hope to go back some day.
