Found this restaurant via a book our hotel reception gave us on places to eat in Honfluer. We had no booking but managed to get a table for 2 soon after it was completely full. Service was good and most staff spoke English, we had one of their set menus and it was very good value for money, the food... More

Booked this restaurant in advance based on trip advisor reviews. Location is lovely, near the port, and the restaurant itself is very attractive. Had the oysters for appetizers and they were excellent. My husband ordered duck for his main course, rare, and it came out medium well, so it was not very tasty and tougher than it should have been.... More

We had wandered around the town for some time not being able to find a suitable place and being turned away at several. This place on the corner by the harbour was busy but they had a table for two so in we went. Service was superb as was the food. The ambience is cosy and romantic but certainly not... More

Lucky enough to have visited this restaurant quite a few times on business, food always great to be fair, lovely location close to Honfleur harbour. Would definitely recommend amongst the mass of restaurants in this area, staff can border on being a touch "distant" at times but always polite. Not cheap but not over-expensive either, gourmet style food and very... More

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.

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). Ask for a table close to... More
