Evening meal

We went to this restaurant on the basis of other Tripadvisor reviews. We turned up at 7pm on Friday evening and it was empty so managed to get a table for 7 people. However 5 minutes later the place was packed and people were being turned away. The service was friendly. The food excellent. All... read more

Our family of four stopped over in Honfleur for a day and it's a really lovely little place. Trip Advisor pointed us to this place but I have to disagree with the 'excellents'. Our youngest daughter had the children's meal which was cod in a cream sauce followed by a bowl of ice cream and 'a surprise'. My wife and... More

Away from the crowds and tourist traps that surround the Vieux Bassin, this is a real treat. Food and service are excellent: traditional Normandy dishes but with imaginative touches. It may be worth booking, particularly in the summer. There is a very pleasant covered, non-smoking terrace.

Slightly away from the maddening tourist crowded restaurants, this small family run restaurant has some very nice and pleasant food. The restaurant is not big, with an outside seating area, and the service is excellent and friendly. Food is very good and fresh.

The French get a bit of a reputation for being aloof and rude, and if you believe that try this place to have your mind changed. Our waiter was so very warm, gracious and friendly with a great sense of humour. Location is good, though not on the water, but looks over a nice little square. Food was excellent, and... More

Wandering around Honfleur in search of a place to eat is like wandering around London in search of tourists - there are hundreds of them! Trying the old trick of seeking out the busiest at 8pm one Monday evening proved disappointing - Au Bouillon were too busy to accommodate us, so next evening we returned earlier and found ourselves in...

I'm always nervous about eating in touristy destinations and shy away from the places with views! It usually pays off and it did here. Both the 22 and 30 Euro set menus are good value with a decent selection of choices. This is not fine dining but it is good quality, good value for money and has decent service. The... More

Lovely restaurant, nice atmosphere. The food is fresh with a lot of flavour. I recommend their fish "marmite du pecheur" (pot of fisherman)

This restaurant was recommended to us by the concierge of our Honfleur hotel as the place where he would take his wife on important occasions. it was good advice. A simple menu with fresh food ingredients, a very competent staff, great location, and excellent food. It was likely the best restaurant we visited during a 3 week vacation in France.
