Visited Au Vieux Honfleur recently and thought it did not come up to expectations.Thought it was over priced and perhaps this is due to its prime position on the harbor.Most of the staff were okay except for one young lady who was very miserable,The food was average and would not return to this... read more

We had a good meal here. Reasonably priced and the quality was very acceptable - though note Michelin starred quality, it was certainly gastronomic. My fish soup was superb and the white fish my wife had (sea bream) was fine. Good wine list. Slightly living on 'past glories' perhaps but overall, this restaurant can be recommended. We didn't have any... More

So, we ate the previous night at L'Écailleur. And tried to repeat but found it was the night off. So we ate at Au Vieux Honfleur despite the several disparaging comments on TA about the service. Our experience was quite the opposite and found the host to be friendly and attentive. The food on the €43 fixed price menu was... More

This is a very good place to eat situated in reputably one of the oldest buildings in Honfleur. It has a covered terrace which is heated, giving views of the quayside. There is a good choice of dishes well presented by friendly staff. Everywhere spotlessly clean.

My girlfriend and I ate here one night whilst on holiday in Honfleur. We chose the restaurant as we really liked the look of the set menu. The restaurant has an excellent view over the vieux bassin. Our food was excellent, all of it was fresh and tasty. The seafood platter for starters was huge, and our main courses and... More

Honfleur is definitely very picturesque and has many shops and restaurants. On the day we visited, there was a cruise ship in port so I'm not sure if this made it extra busy. I was glad I saw Honfleur but it was very busy, difficult to park and crowded. It also definitely felt touristy to me with a combination of... More

They ignored us for 20 minutes - it was busy outside but some simple acknowledgment from the staff who passed our table on their way to the kitchen at least 10 times would have made all the difference. I agree with the other recent reviewers they need to focus on their service. Can't comment on the food we didn't have... More

We were astounded by how deplorable the service was at this deceptively nice looking looking trap. Their attitude was quite awful, and we left feeling a sense of relief at leaving a cynical restaurant with horrid arrogant staff. AVOID!!!

Situated on the harbour the location could not be improved. The food was very good quality, well cooked and well presented. One downside was the young staff. They were not up to the usual Honfleur standard. However service aside, the meal was very good.
