Very average

Nice location overlooking the old harbour. Service was OK, but the food was average. The overall cost was a bit high.

Very enjoyable evening with family The food was excellent, particularly the fillet steak and sea bass. Beware of stating which menu you are selecting from. We have good French, but the waitress should have been a little more attentive and asked which menu. She assumed the a la carte. There was a smaller menu which on this occasion is what... More

We had long wanted to visit Honfleur and on Monday 11th May we made it. The restaurant has the most perfect position looking across the Old Basin at the most amazing group of architecture imaginable. The service was good and very friendly. We had fish soup followed by Moules Marinieres. The food was excellent. My wife had crème brulee to... More

Our driver recommended this spot for lunch, and he made our reservations. It was horrible! They took our order, acting as if they didn't understand English. Then we waited, waited, and waited. They totally ignored us, while doting on everyone nearby. We were flummoxed, as we couldn't comprehend their indifference. Despite many attempts to even get their attention, we were... More

What a fine restaurant in a terrific location. Helpful and friendly team at front of house and judging by the menu, preparation and serving, an excellent team in the kitchen. Frankly this is our second visit and quite often we regret returning to a fine dining experience but glad we did. Great stuff. Recommended.

Fruit de mer Royale served on a plate with no ice, no cutlery, no shellfish forks, no bowl for the shells !! Main course arrived before I had started my appero, my wife's main didn't arrive, service & food here is terrible, nothing more to say than avoid this 'visit once we don't care' tourist trap. The waiter said I... More

We dined in the evening mid week. We chose the restaurant because of its location and also it seemed quite busy. The waitresses did not seem helpful and appeared very surly. We had fried camembert with salad to start which was okay. When we are in France we enjoy at least one person of muscles and Fites. This was a... More

Stopped in here for lunch. We had Turbot and Sole Meunière respectively. Both dishes were excellent, well presented and cooked well. Would come back for lunch anytime

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 . It was for a celebration of our oldest sons' 18th Birthday, so needed a place where all three boys (the... More

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.
