If you like seafood served in a delightful French restaurant this is the place to come to. We spotted it the night before and it was full of happy customers so we booked for the following night. Booking is a definite must as it gets very busy and mainly full of French customers which is a good recommendation. We were... More

Our hotel recommended this restaurant and the reviews were good on trip advisor although some said the service was slow ... My husband and I thought this was our best meal in Honfleur. It is not a quick stop and neither should it be. It's a place to truly enjoy an Unrushed French meal with all the courses. The sea... More

We enjoyed an excellent dinner here. We started with oysters on the half shell. Fantastic. Then we had different appetizers of tuna and other seafood. And main courses of steak, fish, and risotto. Everyone enjoyed their food very much. We topped it off with delicious lattes ("grande crème"). The wait staff was very hospitable. We sat outside where we were... More

We reserved for a pleasant meal for the last night of our holiday and were not disappointed. We phoned at 6pm for a table at 7.15 and were glad we had because the restaurant soon filled up and quite a few couples and groups were turned away. Welcome and service were pleasant and efficient. Food, one fish main course and... More

On arrival (for our reservation) (and you will need reservations) we found that this restaurant is owned by the same people that own Le Gambetta. Thus, some of the menu was the same as we experienced just days before at Le Gambetta. If you have an option, Le Gambetta is, in our opinion, the better of the two. Had we... More

After wondering around the touristy parts of Honfleur we just dropped in because a favourite was on for lunch. We had mussels in a creamy sauce served by a friendly and pleasant waitress that spoke English when my French failed. The mussels were small but very tasty and well cooked the bread home baked and tasty. We were lucky to... More

You will need a reservation here. Lots of people get turned away. We made our reservation only an hour before, however.A very young staff will give you great service. The grilled lobster is a treat. All dishes are prepared in an original manner. Centrally located in the old town probably walking distance from your hotel . Many repeat customers from... More
