Me and my girlfriend visited this restaurant in july 2014, after seeing the tripadviser reviews. We had not expected that the restaurant was that chique (by services and prices of drinks, coca cola for 5 euros and a glass of wine for 9 euros!). Shocked by the drink prices we just ordered a bottle of water and had the delicious... More

Saw previous review 'Best Vegetarian Meal in France' and wholeheartedly agree. Couldn't fault La Tortue on our visit two weeks ago. Both my husband (meat/fish eater) and myself (vegetarian) both had a fantastic meal with very nice wine, and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The waiter was friendly - he was French and when he described the vegetarian menu as 'a... More

We really enjoyed dinner in this small but smart restaurant in scenic Honfleur. There is a variety of 3 course options and a great wine list. The service is efficient and the atmosphere cool and relaxed

What a lovely little restaurant away from the touristy harbour front. The menus were varied or set price with flexibility. We're not massive eaters but do like quality, this certainly was quality. Every dish was explained when being served and in between tasters were served with the same enthusiasm. How can anyone be negative about La Tortue.

We arrived on the busiest saturday of the Bastille Day holiday weekend and were glad to shuffle past the touristy places on the harbour and find up the side street this charming place. Valerie was a very good waitress who also made us laugh! We had good value for the three course menu - I had delicious pate, then a... More

We had the salmon (without the cream) which was absolutely perfect. The herbs they used in their rice was delicious. Despite calling late they were very welcoming in accommodating us. Staff were extremely friendly. Not an extensive menu but wonderful choices.

To be clear this isn't just a veggie restaurant but they have a specific veggie set menu. The restaurant is in a beautiful old building not far from the pretty harbour. I always have low expectations of what the food (and service for that matter) will be like in any restaurant in France - where vegetarians are generally treated with... More

The meal that we had here was exceptional. The waitress and waiter were friendly and very efficient. The food was beautifully cooked and presented. The house wines were very good. We enjoyed our meal so much that we returned the next evening. The pork fillet was the best that I have ever had. Succulent and with a lovely jus. I... More

My wife and I dined here this evening. Delicious....every course delicious. The ambience as warm and welcoming and the owners delightful. Under new ownership for the last two years, we were delighted with all aspects of this lovely French restaurant. Honfleur has many restaurants and it is hard to choose one, but you are guaranteed a delicious meal at a... More
