Good restaurant

A good sized restaurant with a lovely log fire. The menu is varied with lobster a speciality. Wine is a bit overpriced. The staff are very attentive. The people next to us had a plateau de fruits de mer and it looked fabulous. We had a very enjoyable time. Would go there again.

Lovely restaurant set back from the 'attrape touristes' on the harbour. The food and service were perfect. We had the 3 courses menu @ €36 and we're not disappointed. We struggled to eat the pudding as it turned out it was a 4 courses menu not 3, we forgot the plate of cheeses that was served between main and dessert... More

Set back from the tourist food on the harbour this charming restaurant was a more than pleasant surprise. We didn't book, which i would recommend, but luckily a table was available outside which was perfect as the night was quite warm. Great food, wine & service all while watching the passing traffic along the cobblestones. Atmosphere, food, wine and great... More

Lovely cosy restaurant in a small side street with a most impressive menu. The staff were very friendly and the food was stunning with the emphasis on local fish and seafood. A wonderful experience and we will definitely return on our next visit to Honfleur

We had a very good 3 course dinner. Real good food, so different from the one we ate the night before in an harbor tourist trap. Both seafood and meat were delicious, and the desserts are unforgettable. Service was welcoming and efficient. Since we did not have reservation, we were seated in the upper floor. nice, but I think downstairs... More

We stopped in this busy little place on one of old Honfleur’s little cobblestone streets near the harbor one night (a Tuesday), but could only get a table upstairs (not as inviting, and no one was up there), since we had no reservation. So we made a reservation for the next night. We had a nice corner table in the... More

A great find in Honfleur. A few blocks removed from the more touristy options. Terrific food and outstanding service.
