This has been our favourite restaurant for past 2 years in Honfleur but this year it was too crowded and service has lost its personal charm. Food still ok but what a disappointment!

We went twice and managed to get a table for 2 without reservations at 7.15pm, but 15 min later the restaurant was full. Great food. The oysters and fish very very good. Menu was good we were advised to use the French menu. Service was patchy due to the crowds of people being turned away and a very full house,... More

we used the reviews on Tripadvisor to help choose a restaurant and we were not disappointed! Great food! In particular, my husband loved his black pudding starter and my desert was superb (fruit poached with a delicious beurre sale sauce). Restaurant was full and people were being turned away, so would advise booking in advance. Service was friendly and good... More

We ate here yesterday as had read reviews on TA. Lucky enough to get a table for 3 at 6:50 without a reservation as by about 7:30 it was pretty packed mostly with prior reservations. Focus is on fish all of which was really well cooked and my wife and I agreed some of the most succulent we have tried.... More

We had an evening meal, the two of us. €30 set menu de jour, oysters as a starter, and fish casserole as main course. The food was well cooked and presented, but the service was not as it should be, probably due to lack of number of people serving. Order using the French menu, if you can, as the English... More

We went here after reading the nice reviews here on tripadvisor, and we were not disapointed. The service was inpeckable, even tough there were only two waitors in the entire fully seated restaurant. The food was amazing. Would recomend everyone this restaurant.

We had the Plat de Jour and what a treat! Great choice of true French food - our friend even tried the tripe. The waitresses were good enough to check that we knew what this was before ordering! There was only 2 young girls serving on the night but they never stopped, were fantastic with our minimal French and smiled... More

With the weather dull and wet, we escaped into this restaurant for dinner. The pate for a starter was a little strange - resembling hard sausage such as that you might find in a pork pie rather than the smoother paste you might get elsewhere; however, the main (duck with mash potato) was lovely: a real treat. The atmosphere inside... More

This was the first dinner of our three week trip around France. It set a high standard which few others measured up to. We both ordered the three course menu, which focused on local seafood. Everything was excellent. Servings were on the small side but we had no complaints.
