Food from a chef who cares

Having seen some of the posted pictures with blue plate dressings and read the review by Stuart M and the owners reply I thought I would check out the place for myself.

Our host recommended this restaurant and thank goodness she did.... From start to finish we loved the whole experience: from the initial amuse Bouches through to the final drinks everything was fabulous. We would like to send our compliments to the chef and to all the attentive staff who made this a very memorable dining experience. Highly recommended.

We visited Honfleur in June and had lunch at La Lieutenance. The service decent and reserved. We had Dorade and cap of rump. The Dorade was great, the Beef average to good. As Dessert we had strawberry-soup and chocolate-cake. The soup was fantastic and so was the cake. All in all a nice little restaurant with good food.

We decided to avoid the 'formulaic' restaurants along the waterfront which cater for the 'touristes'. BIG MISTAKE. This restarant from start to finish was a disaster. We were given the English menu, however when we came to order, we were told that the French menu had recently been changed, but thay hadn't got around to changing the English menu. Consequently,...

OK : So you didn’t enjoy your meal in our restaurant (I’ll be answering your complaints later on through this), let's say : fair enough, but under no circumstances are you to say that we are not welcoming english-speakers properly, to do segregation or even prioritizing our care due to nationality or tongue, like you said : between french and...

The best gazpacho I have ever tasted. Main of Dourade was fabulous. Great texture fish fine tastes. Lovely setting in the square opposite the church (a gem of a building not to be missed). And slightly away from the masses of people further down on the harbour side, so much more conjusive to eating and relaxing. We stayed in Honfleur... More

Set in a pretty square overlooking the town church we sat outside on a pleasant July evening. We had been recommended this restaurant by a friend and it certainly lived up to our expectations. For main course we had the duck dish and a lamb dish both of which were perfectly cooked. For pudding we had a caramel soufflé which... More

We visited in May and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. We visited again this month and it was even better - small changes to the menu and new ideas. The same friendly service, gorgeous food, good wine and great surroundings - what more could we want ?

We visited this restaurant based on a local recommendation and we were not disappointed. Everything about the occasion was excellent. The food, service and location were all superb. The price was also very reasonable for the quality of the food served. If you are in Honfleur then I'd recommend you visit. It's no more than a minute from the usual... More

My wife and I had a meal to mark our 30th wedding anniversary here last night; in a misunderstanding our son went to the wrong restaurant, so we had to go out and find him. Staff were really understanding and kept our table for the best part of an hour despite it being busy. When we got to our meal... More
