Very average

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

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.

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...
