Lovely food and friendly service

The Le Champlain is set in the older part of Honfleur and is surrounded by a whole batch of other restaurants but caught our eye. The staff were very friendly and appreciated our attempts to order food in French. A super atmosphere with many French customers (which is always a good sign). The... read more

I'm surprised to see such bad reviews for this place. It doesn't attempt to be anything more than what it is - a nice, friendly, spot with good honest French food. To start my fiancée had the foie gras, which she was very happy with. I had the goats cheese and apple salad, which was really tasty. Main courses were... More

Although this restaurant is not gourmet, the food was delicious. Simple ingredients, served with clever and tasty sauces and the right vegetables. When the starter came I was the first with the camera, taking pictures of the very attractively arranged starter. By the time the main course arrived the camera was the last thing on my mind! I had what... More

They put us next to the fireplace on a cold November day. I had the special of the day, cod in a wonderful cream sauce, for the bargain price of 13.90 Euros. A charming staff that is very attentive to your needs. The restaurant was full of locals enjoying mussels. Highly recommended.

Whilst wandering the street of Honfleur, in search of somewhere to eat that would serve decent food, rather than tourist fodder, we chose this place as there appeared to be a few locals dining there; and we were not disappointed with our choice. The prices are touristy (high) but the quantity and quality of the food was quite good. We... More

We had the mussels & steak for lunch. The mussels were tasty but the steak was pretty tough, I guess this is the normal fare for French cows... The service was very nice, we went in mid afternoon so only a few customers to serve. Restaurant was clean and location central. Pricy but expected for the location.

Really good value mussels had here, really relaxed and lovely venue, definitely worth walking away from the harbour for - about 1 minute away!!
