Good Food, Big Portions, Great Service!

This was recommended to us for a special dinner destination. The restaurant itself is cozy with 8 tables on the first floor and 4 on the second. They only do one service per night, so I suggest you make reservations. The food was good, with big portions, but honestly nothing spectacular. Fresh... read more

Lively , snug restaurant. Set menus & a la carte available. We chose from the 4 course 36 euro menu.I had a fruits de mer starter, coquilles st jacques, cheese & a tarte tatin , all passable, My husband had a cote de boeuf but it was largely inedible as it was more fat than meat.The best parts of the...

We had dinner here. It was a pleasant site and we had a nice dining experience. MY wife had the goat cheese salad and the cod. I had oysters (very good) and the coquille st. Jacque (dissapointing). The service was very good and we had an enjoyable time, but the food was not quite up to it and it was... More

Restaurant near the centre of Honfleur up a little narrow street. Inside is quite cosy and has a pleasant atmosphere, The menus provide a good choice at reasonable prices. Unlike other reviewers we found the staff quite pleasant and the service good. The food was cooked well and was all good. Anywhere that serves nine oysters as a starter in... More

I loved everything about this place. We were 25 minutes late and they were still nice to us. Great atmosphere, great staff and delicious food. Try the lobster OMG good. We had sea perch, shrimp, cheese plate-it was all good. Go eat here I don't think you will be disappointed

Food was fine. Service started well but deteriorated as meal progressed.Too expensive a place for (some)staff to behave with complete indifference. Disappointing experience as it doesn't take much to look as though you are bothered.

We were here by two families with the children and found really friendly staff and comfortable authentic environment, but to be honest they should learn to cook fish better. Unfortunately there is average food quality in this place.

We booked to dine at this restaurant via their web site…and then re-sent the request several times. We arrived at the restaurant to confirm our booking having driven 500km to get to Honfleur. A slightly dishevelled character wearing his headphones pushed past us to get the the door only to tell us that this was on old website and that... More

Very Popular restaurant so it is very advisable to book. Charming ambiance with very friendly helpful staff but the night we visited they seemed a bit overstretched in a completely full restaurant. My Fruits de Mer appetizer was excellent as was my fish main course. My fellow guests had the Cote de Boeuf which was huge and prepared as ordered.... More

Sorely disappointed with this place. Perhaps they were just having an off night, but staff were curt, food was average at best, wrong food was delivered, and it was fairly pricey. Wine was ok and setting is good, otherwise there are plenty of other super places to eat in Honfleur so you can avoid this one.
