Visiting in early January we were glad we had reserved a table as the restaurant was full. Lovely room with an open fire. The menu offered several different set menus and A la Carte. Two of us opted for the 25 euro set menu and two chose from the A la Carte menu. We were all happy with our food.... More

As no-one would answer my emails I eventually phoned three weeks in advance to book a table - luckily I had as the restaurant was full. Lovely room with beams and a large fire. Service was very friendly and very good. Food was also very good and even those of us who had the "set menu" found that the food... More

I would not be surprised to hear this is a popular restaurant. We were there in September and it was quite full. We had an excellent three course meal for 25 Euros each. The waitress was impressed with my husband's French. His mother would be proud as that is his mother tongue. The service was good and we had a... More

We got one the few unreserved tables and I'm glad we did. We both opted for the à la carte. I had carpaccio and St Jacques, both full of flavour. My partner had the fish which was served on the bone with the head. The only fault was the smoke from the fire. The staff were really helpful and assisted... More

Our hotelier was quite right to recommend this and a few other restaurants that do not necessarily attract the tourists. We all had the set menu and it was good value, generous and delicious. Delightful service too.

This is a cosy, romantic place with a lovely open fire in the middle of the dining room. My wife chose the € 34 menu, consisting of four courses. I went for the à la carte formula. As starter she took hot oysters. I went for the sea fish "starter" (without lobster), a lovely, but huge plate with crab, langoustines,... More

I go to Honfleur every two months to visit my mother. I often tried to go to l'Homme de Bois but as it is always full this time I made a reservation. It is a lovely place, chic and retro. The ambiance is warm and is for sure one the most beautiful restaurant in Honfleur. But food and service was... More

We can only endorse what the vast majority of the other reviews have stated. Wonderful food, service and ambience - lovely real wood fire in winter. We had lunch on Sunday and immediately booked again for the Thursday evening. Both meals excellent (Cote de Boeuf and al a carte fish dishes). Would thoroughly recommend it and as it is used...
