Dinner for 3 on a Thursday night in September

We chose this restaurant because of its Michelin Bib award and the Michelin glowing review in the 2014 Guide. We reserved in advance and arrived as the first clients at 19.15 .

This restaurant is supposed to have a creative touch and has been rewarded with a BiB-gourmand. These features made us book a table here. How disappointing it was! Apparently we could only book a 4course diner instead of a la carte (not sure if this is actually true but no other options have been given). I had a starter with... More

It is so pleasing when every box is ticked perfectly. The service was spot on - attentive and helpful, fluent English if needed and happy to plug away with my rubbish French when I tried. Very attractive design, modern and calm - quite an antidote to the busy streets. And plenty of space at and between tables. Food was superb,... More

This restaurant is located in a lovely old house. Although this is rated as the second best in Honfleur, it was a bit of a disappointment. The service was less than friendly even though the waiter did help with some translations. He seemed a bit put out when we asked if we could have a starter from the less expensive... More

This is a small restaurant with a contemporary feel to it. Between the waiter and the menu, we ordered all of our courses in advance. I must say, we were so surprised and pleased at the levels of tastes and textures in the appetizers and desserts. They were sublime! Our main course was sea bass, which was outstanding and the...

An adventurous menu with everything we had cooked and served to perfection. Why it should lanquish at 27 in the list of Honfleur restaurants is an injustice - this is top of the table restaurant by any standard.

Delicious, creative and beautifully served dishes. We both had fish, a practical choice in a seaside town. The wait staff could (should) have b een more helpfulas helpful, but we were able to muddlethrough the menu.
