OK- but could (should ?) be better -

After looking over very many restaurants a couple of days prior ( many are closed = off season) I decided on this restaurant because of it's (magnificent) position on the harbour, obvious ambience, and reasonably priced Menus / Carte .

Always good reliable food. Great location, nice service. Not over expensive. We have a house not far from the harbour & this restaurant is one of our all time favourites in Honfleur. Do book in season.

Perfectly located overlooking the harbor, small terrace but quick service with a smile. The drinks were not cheap but the service quick and professional. The place was clean and with the right atmosphere. Although we did not dine here we saw some nice dishes being served.

After searching the different restaurants in Honfleur, we picked this one and were not disappointed. The service was very attentive and the food excellent. The position is fantastic.

We were served the fatty and bony tail of a turbot with no meat and mussels without any seasoning - just boiled. The proprietor had the grace not to charge for the lump of fish fat - but it was shocking that something like that should leave a kitchen. Rip-off in a tourist spot. Its is harder and harder to...

We dined here for lunch my partner and I both choose the filet of duck which was delicious, served with a courgette soufflé and dauphinoise potato. For pudding I had a poached pear with caramel sauce. It was exquisite. My partner had a cheese selection was ok, similar cheeses. He wished he had chosen pear!

What can you expect from a restaurant located at the most visited place in Honfleur? Nice or bad food ... It doesn't matter as those places are always fully booked. With those low expectations, we had a quick lunch at "au vieux Honfleur". The service was friendly and that was the only positive. The food was made without any passion.... More

My first impression of this restaurant was that it was overpriced, an impression which remained throughout my meal. Service was slow and they failed to provide small things, such as plates and butter for the bread provided before the meal. We sat outside, and the view was lovely apart from the vast amounts of tourists walking past and stopping to... More

The set menus are good value and offer interesting and local dishes. The fish soup was tasty and generous as was the starter of salmon. Main course fish dishes were also well presented and good quality. The desserts were also excellent. Sitting out overlooking the harbour eating a good standard meal on a warm night, hard to beat at these... More
