We went to l'Homme du Bois, Honfleur on a rainy friday evening to have dinner. We were almost alone on arrival but soon it was a full house. We had a marvellous dinner and the service was perfect. The warm oysters and the fois gras were a delight. We will come back.

We actually went twice during our stay in Honfleur. This restaurant came recommended by our host and we were not disappointed. It's not a touristy as many other restaurants in the city and their menu is reasonably priced. I was a little concerned based on other reviews, but food quality was excellent and service was extremely friendly. A full menu... More

While the atmosphere, the service and most other things in the restaurant were fine, the main course (gambas) on the menu was, in our view, very poorly cooked. To be fair (after a fashion), the chef claimed that the problem was due to the product itself. In any event, on this basis we could not recommend this restaurant.

Nice restaurant in one of the small streets of Honfleur. We enjoyed the the steak made from a local race. As it can be quite busy, it's really recommended to make a reservation. But if you like fish, you should go to their neighboor : La Tortue.

Really enjoyable night here with great food and very good service. They were turning people away so make sure you book on the weekends!

Having read the reviews we wanted to try this restaurant for ourselves. We booked for our last night in Honfleur to celebrate a lovely week in a lovely place. We made the mistake of deviating from the fish option on our starters as my wife fancied carpaccio of beef and I wanted the pate. First mistake! The beef was tasteless... More

We visited this restaurant in June 2015 and based on local and trip advisor recommendations we were looking forward to a good meal. However, I was very disappointed. I selected the fixed price menu (36 euro) because it offered dishes that I usually enjoy - fish soup, grilled prawns and ile flottante for dessert. The soup and the dessert tasted... More

We had a lovely meal here on our first night in Honfleur. We went for one of the set menus and they were great, the beef cappaccio especially. The restaurant was full (mostly locals) so we were glad we had booked.

We had dinner here this week. The huitres were excellent and very fresh. The steak was good as well. Saignant or rare as it should. Service was friendly and personal. A discovery in a very touristic city of Honfleur
