This lovely restaurant is located across from the old port. We had a reservation for 4 people on a Sunday evening. We were given a nice corner table. We all had the 30 euro prix fixe menu. My husband and friend had the shrimp and whelks for starters. My husband won't eat escargot so he wouldn't even try the whelks... More

We booked this restaurant as part of our Brittany ferries gourmet trip and indeed it was a gourmet lunch to savour. Friendly welcoming reception, good views of the marina/harbour/place from our table and warm atmosphere in the room. Our 5 course meals were delicious in all aspects, evenly spaced in time and great value for the quality of dish. The... More

This is a very good quality restaurant in every respect: location overlooking the vieux port; set menus offering good value as well as a la carte menu; thoughtful and interesting cuisine; smart decor; excellent food and service. Book ahead to reserve a table with a view.

We had dinner in this restaurant with our friends. It was excellent in every aspect - friendly staff - very tasty menu and not expensive given the quality and presentation. I would recommend this restaurant to all my friends.

This is a nice place with relax atmosphere and a nice view on the port. there is some interesting creativity with the meal (mash potatoes with lime: very tasty) Price are reasonnable for the quality of the food Unfortunately the seafood plate was desapointing surprising for a restaurant with such a name (oyster sheller).

Two set menus for about €30 and €40. Food very good and the service was excellent. We didn't book but got a warm welcome most tables were reserved. Food was well cooked and well presented. 1/2 bottle of wine and some aperitif , coffee was about €100. Not the cheapest but good value and good food in Honfleur.

First time visit to Honfleur and this restaurant hit the right cord. The service was warm and friendly and the food was very good. Maybe a tad expensive for lunch, however worth every penny. Presentation of food was good and didn't feel turned out like some of the other more touristic harbor side restaurants.

Good location looking over the harbour but inside. Good atmosphere and quality for that special occasion but alcohol a bit expensive. You get what you pay for and here that includes a premium for the fact that honfleur is an attractive and romantic setting.

We booked at 11 before we took a touristy boat trip to see the Pont Normande and returned at 1.15 for an excellent set lunch. The place was full with locals as well as other tourists and the view over the harbour from the dining room was spellbinding. My turbot was the best I'd eaten for years.

Among tons of less than average looking cafes of Honfleur harbor, this place is a little jewel with Michelin's two forks on the entrance and a beautiful and not at all pricey selection of finest foods (and ciders!)
