Lovely meal for two and friendly service

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.

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

We had a really nice evening meal in this restaurant in the heart of Honfleur. Even though we managed to get a table for two just walking in, I think you'd want to make a reservation as it soon got very busy and we saw lots of people get turned away. The menu features the local cuisine, with much of... More

Go there for St. Vaast oysters! Very good. The lobster was a stiff priced supplement on the menu but also very good. Take the mi-cuit chococlatbomb for dessert and you can hardly get off your chair. Great place.

Arrived not expecting much. Left with heightened expectations of what a good cote de bœuf really is. Charming little restaurant with completely wooden interior (L'Homme de Bois in the rue de L'Homme de Bois. Figures…). One waitress handling all the downstairs tables calmly, expediently, and perfectly. That in and of itself was already remarkable. The place should most likely be... More
