Keeping up the good work

When in Honfleur we are Sunday lunchtime regulars at La Lieutenance - our first visit was more than 25 years ago and of course ownership has changed through the years. It follows that the quality of food etc. has varied quite noticeably. The current owners who have been in situ for the last few... read more

Did not have a booking so arrived at opening time and sat in covered terrace. Service was very good and maitre d' helpful when he realised we were serious about food. Good value as could select only entree and main from set menu for reduced cost. Food beautiful and flavoursome - careful treatment of seafood delivered natural flavour.

A nice location, but not an obvious dining experience. We were wonderfully surprised. The food was superb. Service was just as good.

The restaurant space is elegant and beautifully furnished. Once in the dining room, we knew we were going to have a fine dining experience and we certainly did. The food was as refined and elegant as the room and everything we ordered was excellent tasting and beautifully plated. Service was also exceptional, yet non intrusive. Instead of describing tastes, I'll... More

The restaurant is perfectly located on the Place Ste. Cathėrine, next to the church. It's a bit more formal than the other restaurants in Honfleur, with an elegant interior. Since it was the weekend before Christmas, it was very calm on the Sunday evening when we visited the restaurant (only three tables were taken). My wife and I took the... More

Have been many times before but had forgotten what a pleasant experience we always have here. The pumpkin and chestnut soup was brilliant as a winter starter. Main courses are all above average and the deserts are very special.

A more formal ambience than some of the restaurants in the centre of Honfleur but a great culinary experience.

We had a lovely evening here. Chose the set menu. Hubby said his steak was one of the best he ever had. Thoroughly enjoyed our evening but I guess it was a little on the pricey side.

recommended to us by hotel owner. Not a great choice on the menu but executed well. It was rather pricey but a nice place to visit. Best to book as it was very popular and no room for walk-in diners.
