Unlike other reviewers, we appreciated this restaurant. The food is not Michelin star level, but it was good for just an ordinary evening when you want good food without a lot of fuss. The daurade fish was cooked properly and the chocolate desserts were good. Mostly we appreciated the warm welcome given us by the manager, who clearly aimed to... More

Having visited this restaurant a number of years ago we were looking forward to a good quality meal. We paid 33 euro per head for some of the most amateurish cooking experienced in a long time. My fish soup starter was dull and lacked the depth of flavor required to make this an interesting dish. My wife's starter, assiette de... More

This restaurant was practically the only one opened in Honfleur at this time of the year. The room is very old and not very neat. The waitress was very amateur going around for nothing. We chose "le menu des peintres" with a starter and a main course and cheese. The starter was just acceptable and the main course which was... More

We have a home close to Honfleur and consequently visit the beautiful town frequently. On a recent rainy Saturday evening, having made a reservation, we arrived to find the restaurant packed with the manager/plus just one other waiter taking orders. Any attempt to attract the attention of either of them to place our order was ignored. After forty minutes we... More

The food is good and the restaurant is situated right on the harbour, facing the rip-off tourist quarter ( so I've been told ) The € 21 menu ( the cheapest one ) was good but we had so little in our plates ! An hour after we had finished our meal, we were already hungry again !

Visited this venue again and bagged a table for two by the front window overlooking the harbour while on the phone a couple of weeks before our arrival. It was, as is usual quite busy on the wet and windy October night we went there. The food is good and the menu has not changed all that much over the... More

I've said it before - I'm a picky eater! Honfleur is delightful! We looked at many restaurants around the harbour, most of which were serving the usual duck, fish etc. We decided on Au Vieux for a few reasons - firstly, a great view! Several things on the menu I would eat. It wasn't in full sun (a hot and... More

We have a 'maison secondaire' half an hour away, and it is the gastronomic highlight of our visits to Normandy. There is an engaging view over the Vieux Bassin. Food exquisite, especially the hommard a l'estragon and coquilles. The pear dessert is out of this world. I can't imagine why it is rated number 66 in Honfleur - we have... More

We visited here for my husband's birthday and were not disappointed. We were greeted with a photo of Queen Elizabeth II on arrival, and were immediately seated, despite the restaurant being quite full. Starters, Amuse Bouche and mains were all delicious, as was the wine (recommended by the waitress)... Couldn't fault the service and relaxed and classy atmosphere, but the... More
